You can easily develop dark brown pigmentation spots if you tan naturally or artificially while on Differin. Differin makes your skin much more susceptible to sun damage. Tanning while on Differin is a definite no-no.

You know, this is a good subject. I have been on so many acne treatments over the years, I have got used to avoiding prolonged sun exposure. I am almost as white as a ghost. I would like to be able to tan from time to time. Infact, last time I used a BP cream with toner, (to cover the bags under my eyes), I ended up getting a sunburn on my eyelids! Hurt like heck. What can be done to get a tan, and be ance free. The whiter you get, the more the red spots show up.

YEAH i asked my derm if i could go on the sunbeds while i was on BP AND DEFFERIN AND MINOYCLINE, cause i was clueless and i didnt wanna just go ahead and do it and then wreck my skin, so i asked and he said that it is a big no no, but i have stopped both creams now cause they didnt work so i am going to start going on sunbeds soon, hopefully it wont wreck my skin cause i am stil on minocycline

Don't tan on Differin. Don't tan on Retin-A. Don't tan on Tazorac. Don't tan on Accutane. Don't tan on Doxycycline. Don't tan on Minocin. Hmmm...starting to see the common thread? :D

why not tan and use a cloth to cover ur face...? I guess that would make it uneven but fuckit, its not worth risking the damage to ur skin. Even if u didnt notice any adverse effects of the first tanning....I would def suggest not to tan ur face again, could cause problems.

i used to be on benzaclin, and i tanned all the time while using that. I never had it on while i was tanning, but i was using it at nights before bed. I saw no peeling or anything, just a nice tan!~ Of course benzaclin isnt retin-a or tazorac, but my skin was fine with tanning with benzaclin.

I know this is a shitty fact, and I tan too sometimes living in the south where it's 95 degrees for like 9 months out of the year, but tanning is sooooo bad for you. Try to be safe and don't do it very often. I've come to the realization that I would rather be a little pale than look like a leather bag when I'm 40. I know you guys already know this - Just looking out for you. :X . I'm only 22 and I've started to get wrinkles under my eyes, totally freaks me out. NO MORE TANNING FOR ME!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! :oops:

Sorry for big bump, I googled and came here.

The question is: If you were young and stupid, didn't know shit and still used differin and was exposed to sun alot. What do you do? My nose has been permanently red for nine years, which I have ignored by covering it somewhat. But now I want to deal with it and hopefully get normal skin again.

What would you do?
