Will facial acne medication mess up the spray tan?

Question: If I use an acne medication, and then get a spray tan will the chemical in the medication create a problem with the tanning solution?

Answer: I am not sure if you are talking about something like antibiotics or some sort of medicated face wash?

However, some antibiotics that you take CAN on occasions mess up your spray tans, but it also depends on other factors like your individual body chemistry during that time. Sometimes antibiotics will mess up your tan and at other times the same medication will not. It depends on the combination of circumstances.

If you are talking about medicated face wash or cream, it is very likely that it will mess the tan up because those things often have exfoliating properties and that just get the tan right off.
