Re: YAZ users - ???
Jan 30, 2009
I actually went tanning at a salon about 6 times during the first 2 months of Yaz. It always made my skin super dry and flaky but that was because I was using retin a then, which I recently stopped using. I was breaking out a ton then so i dont really know if I had a breakout afterwards from it.

I've heard that tanning beds help the appearance of acne because the redness goes away but that it actually blocks your pores? so you will en up breaking out later. I'm not sure if that's true or not...

Although when I was in Florida this summer, I got really sunburnt (I always burn and then it turns into a great tan) and it made my skin so much better. I didn't wear any makeup the entire trip! It looked like I never even had acne! I didn't notice any breakouts that would have been caused by the tanning, just went back to my normal breakouts.

But if you're going tanning at a solon, I would only tan my face for part of the time and then cover it with a towel for the rest.. moderation. but that's primarily if you are using certain (harsh) face creams.

Sorry if none of this helps.. that's just experience with tanning. I'd love to hear what others have to say.
