    I've just started an acne treatment and it makes my skin more sensitive to the sun. I was advised to wear spf 30 to ensure i don't get sun burnt (i have brown skin).

    I don't like wearing my current spf 30 moisturiser as it doesn't absorb well so id rather wear my moisturser with no spf - as it absorbs well.

    I will be, however, working in doors in a supermarket for most of the day so the light will be on me constantly and will be commuting to work by walking outside for 30 mins. Outside, it gets dark quickly and is quite cloudy

    Would it be a problem if i didnt wear sunscream?

    Artificial light probably won't hurt - it's probably the UV in the sunlight that you should be worried about. Then again, I don't know how your acne medication works - I'd suggest asking someone more medically qualified.

    This whole problem is actually kind of ironic considering that sunlight is great for acne.

    Sunlight is not great for acne. It dries out acne and makes it appear better on a short term basis but causes damages on a long term basis.
