Post PSORIASIS and TANNING

Hey everyone,
I'm 20 years old now and have had this pesky psoriasis for 10 years.. It comes and goes, but lately I've been breaking out all over my body and scalp. It's horrible and I'm young and like to wear the cute outfits but now have to cover up my body! I used to do the ultra-violet treatments at the derm and those worked but were costly. I've been reading alot about the tanning beds. The only thing is i'm asian and have dark skin already. Do you still need to apply tanning lotion if your purpose isnt really to tan? Are there meds that you combine w/ the tanning? If anyone out there using tanning beds as psoriasis treatment reads this, can you share your routine? THANKS. hope to hear from someone.
