In brief: Acne Sun

Moderate exposure to the sun can, in many instances, help acne.

In brief: Temporarily

The ultraviolet radiation may have transient beneficial properties in treating acne by drying oil and the burning skin.
Long term it is not a treatment and may lead to skin cancers or disorders in later life.
