Acne and spray tan.

by Paige
(Long Beach, US.)

Question: Can spray tan cause acne outbreaks? I already have a bad acne, will it get worse if I spray tan? There are a lot of beauty products that do make my skin worse.

Answer: Spray tan often can help with acne if it has aloe vera base. I have seen it happen few times. It will also make acne less visible. That said - there are so many ingredients in spray tan solutions that THEY may irritate your skin.
If you do not want any chances please visit my "Spray Tan Dangers" page, you will find out about a very pure product that is very safe to use with any skin disorders.
Cheers

shaving hairy arms?
by: Anonymous

I am Italian and I have very hairy arms. If i don't shave them will it make a difference in my spray tan as if they were shaved?

The spray tanning solution has to be able to reach your skin, so I would shave and exfoliate before spray tanning.

Washing face??
by: Anonymous

Okay so I have prom friday and i'm going thursday after school sometime to get a mystic tan. I use face wash for my acne at night. Will my tan be affected by using my face wash or creams? I don't want to break out for prom or have my tan go away. What can I do?

Boshena's comment: It is very likely that your face wash contains some chemicals or alcohol that will remove your tan.
You can either leave off washing your face for one day - surely it would not matter that much and you would not break out after just one missed treatment?
Or - you can use the wash and if it washes off your tan, you can always put on some cover up foundation on your face in color that is similar to the rest of your body. Nobody would know the difference at the prom, and that is what is important, isn't it?

IM HAVING MY FIRST SPRAY TAN AND I WAS WONDERING I ITS GOOD FOR MY BACK ,AND CHEST ANCE.WHAT ABOUT TO MAKE MY LEGS LOOK PRETTIER?DOES SPRAY TB REALLY WORK?
by: Candy

does it?

Boshena's comment: Spray tan often helps acne because it contains aloe vera, so it is probable that your back and chest will look more even colored.

I am not sure what you expect your legs to look like, spray tan will not make them look any different, just darker.

Most people think that it is attractive to have tanned legs, so if this is what you are after, you will get it with spray tan.

That is true, spray tan can help your acne.
by: Amanda

I was relly nervous about spray tannin, cause so many things irritate my acne, but miracle - it has actually made it a bit less, and course you don't see it so much because spots don't look so brown.

Boshena's comment: Yes, it can help acne quite a lot, and when it does, it is almost miraculous.
