I recommend self-tanner over tanning beds. No contest. Believe me, NO WELL RESPECTED DERMATOLOGIST WOULD EVER RECOMMEND TANNING BEDS TO CURE ACNE.

People can ignore skin cancer, and pretend it won't happen to them all they want. They may be bronze and clear now, but tanning catches up with people in the worst ways. Unfortuately, there's no undo-ing the bad decisions of our youth.

The crazy thing in all of this is that many self-tans actually look BETTER than tanning bed tans. I'm a frequent visitor at a sunless website, and similar to this site, you get a world of info about self-tanning, product recommendations, application tips and so on.



FYI: most celebrities wouldn't be caught dead baking - they are airbrushed or go to a Mystic Tan.

Dermatologist will tell you that self tanners on the face will cause horrible acne breakouts. People who suffer from acne suffer from sensitivity to products placed on the skin, especially the face.

My neighbor went for an airbrush tan to attend a wedding. Within 12 hours she had broke out over her entire face with painful cystic type acne lesions. It was horrible and cost her hundreds of dollars at the dermatologist to get it under control. She told my friend that self tanners are horrible to use for acne proned skin.

There is no ONE answer. I have seen all types of self tanners and airbrushing, mystic tanning used. I much prefer the look of someone who goes to a tanning bed.

No one is negating the risk of cancer and sun/tanning bed exposure.
