I'd try Regenerist and some ice. But that's about it.
Good luck I hope it clears up.

If you're using any topical medications for your acne, then, going on the sunbed is the worst thing that you could've done.

Most topicals warn users to NOT use sunbeds or stay in the sun unprotected because the topicals make your skin way more sensitive to light.

I hope you weren't or are not using any topicals when you went on the sunbed because I could slap you for that!

I know I was sooo stupid and I'm using Differin, these ones are not v powerful they recommend 12 minutes. I was so desparate to clear my skin up though. Its gone down a lot today just a bit dry so i keep putting moisturiser on. I'm gonna buy some regenerist today.

thanks a lot for your help and I've learned from my stupid mistake, just hope I haven't caused too much damage.

take an aspirin, and put some aloe on the bad spots. Aspirin is great for bringing down the swelling of a sunburn, and that inflammation reduction might just tone down some of the redness.
