    anyone go tanning in the winter to help prevent/hide acne?

    Im a 25 year old male and still suffering from acne. i figured it is due to my diet for the most part,so im going to change that. Anyways i was thinking about tanning during the winter time,but im kinda worried about the side effects it will bring liek cancer etc? Anyone have a opinion on this? I heard it is great for your acne and it costs like 20 bucks a month,but im kinda unsure still.

    In the summer i spend enough time outside i dont need to tan,but in the winter im pretty pale.

    haha story of my tan or not? During high school i would tan constantly to hide my breakouts and i thought it was did wonders for my this past winter i started tanning again because i was having problems with my face and it made it worse!! i have no idea why the change..maybe age? Anyway i wasnt long as you dont make yourself burn cancer is less likely. The manager of my tanning salon explained all the tanning rules, haha... Made me less scared...use a tanning/sunscreen oil if you do go and you should be ok
