Sunbathing gave me....acne?!

So yesterday I decided to sit out in the sun for about 35-40 minutes (I live in northern Maryland) and I have developed a breakout of acne on my upper back and chest area, as well as mildly on my lower stomach and lower back. I am pretty pale, but how can a 72 degree day in April after a long long winter give me such a reaction?

Also, what would be the best ways to tan if you are pale, but want to gain more color?

And are there any good foods to eat during the sunny times of the year? Vitamin D supplements are good for sunburn prevention apparently.

I think the mechanism is that the sun dehydrates your skin and makes the pores tighter. Sebum can't exit as easily as usual and you end up with acne. I would try a moisturiser before and after sunbathing. Aloe vera or coconut oil maybe?
