Cool Time To Tan

Well ive finally decided thats it,i need to look half decent for Fri night im not going to let this dam acne ruin a night out that i could really do with.
So tomorrow thats Wed im off to the tanning shop,luckily a friend of mine runs one and ive been there before.
Ive found that tanning does improve the skin and conceals the red spots while they are healing up also i think the healing process speeds up too.
But once again this is only a temporary measure because once the tanning stops the acne returns but on the good side at least it gives you a few days of decent looking skin.
Tanning does definatley improve acne but most doctors will say that the side effects out way the improvements ie skin cancer etc.
I agree with this statement but if you just use tanning as a temporary pick me up every now and then and dont let yourself get burnt i cant see a problem with it.
Anyway ill let you know every night this week if my skin improves after the tanning sessions
