    Self-tanner on acne?

    Last summer i used a self-tanner on my face and could afford to go out into the world with no foundation on. The self-tanner would even out my skin tone and i was ready to go. About 8 months ago i developed adult acne that won't go away. Not wearing makeup this summer will not be an option, but does anyone know if can still put self-tanner on with acne? Will i break out even more? I have acne scarring as well, will it make those areas darker? Has anyone tried?
    THANKS

    I also used jergens natural glow lotion because it is supposed to be okay for your skin, but i don't really like to put it on my skin anymore because i'm so worried that any thing will make it break out. I felt like it kinda clogged my pores even though it said that it didn't. Beside my own fears i liked it a lot because it was like a quick and easy concealer. i didn't have to wear a lot of make-up at all which i loved and my scars were actually more hidden. You should try it. it supposed to be safe and i it hides acne well. Hope you have some luck

    I use the Jergens Natural Glow on my body, but the tube for my face still sits in my bathroom closet because I am absolutely terrified to put it on my face. I have mild-moderate acne only on my chin with some pretty bad red marks from previous breakouts all over. I am tempted to try the face lotion now after reading this, but I am still unsure. Any more reassurance?

    I was using one from the Body Shop last summer before the acne that i have now, and Body Shop has good products and this one is made just for the face. I will give it a try, i guess if i break out again i just won't use it next time, lol.

    I've never been game enough to use a self tanner on my face at home (not just because I'm scared of exacerbating my acne but because I'm just scared of streakiness on my face), but I've had spray tans at the salon a few times and there was no problem with my acne, it looked fine and didn't cause any more breakouts than normal.
