I've heard Vitamin D supplements can have a positive effect on acne reduction, though I don't really seem to notice a difference. I definitely get less acne in the summer though, probably because I exercise more, eat better and get more sunlight (maybe...). Of course, a tan will go a long way in hiding the zits you still have.

You can find my kind living right on the fault line, eyes on the seaside, lives on the B-side, kites on the power lines.

Sunlight can make acne go temporarily but then it will come back.
A tan will only hide it.
Try swimming.
I read that that can help a lot
Good luck!

I'm pretty sure it can help clear up acne but definitely make sure you use sufficient sun block! It's not a long term solution though, as Kitty has already said. Have you been to your doctor to see what he/she can prescribe?


..and our dreams will break the boundaries of our fears..
