Do Tanning Beds Help Acne?

Some people believe that the use of tanning beds help to clear acne. The American Academy of Dermatology states that many people go into tanning beds in order to get rid of acne, on their face or body. The theory is that UV rays from the sun or from tanning beds dry up pimples, creating a clearer complexion.

When outside it is very important to wear sunscreen. Sometimes thick and oily sunscreens can clog your pores and cause breakouts.

The next time you are in a tanning bed try using a non-comedogenic sunscreen, which is light and is also great for sensitive skin.
