Not sure about the pool. The sun would help I think bc the tanning bed helps dry it up so I would only imagine the sun would do the same thing. But if you want to keep your skin looking young use sun screen. But I agree with the proactiv. It really works and it is cheap!
The sun doesnt dry out your acne! It only makes your skin pinker or tanner and your acne blends in better. The acne actually gets worse because the heat irritates your skin. Remember, the sun DOES NOT do anything but make the acne worse! Oh yeah, by the way, I am acne-less because I use Clinique skin cleaning products.
