Question accutane/tanning

hi everyone,

well i had the worst pimples all over my face a year ago and i tried everything.The only thing that worked for me was ACCUTANE!Thank god.I was on it for 6 months and i still get a pimple but not 50 at one time.I have question,the only area that is really dry and flaky is my nose.I do use lotions but it's still flaky.And i just went to a tanning bed and i'm covering my face with a towel.It's been a year since my treatment.Is is safe to tan your face?

yes, a year after finishing accutane is plenty enough time to tan your face.

Tanning is never a good idea.
If you're concerned about the effects of Accutane and the tanning however, 12 months is plenty of time that it is out of your system.
