I agree, it does help. Years ago, when I went to the derm for my acne, he would always put me under a sunlamp for about 10 minutes to help clear it up.

For red spots not so good, But if you dont get zits you wont get red spots .
Also bear in mind evreyone is diffrent some people have a tendancy to break out from the sun and tanning beds. For the most part all my fam and friends clear up from both.
Also yes they do caue wrinkles and the posiblilty of skin cancer.

I have some red markings on the side of my face, and as seeing how some of you said it's not so good for that....how would that affect it?

For some people the sun or tanning bed darkens the red spots
