Today i went again only for 15 minutes and I am a little darker in skin color and acne looks even drier.
I will probably go again tommrow.
Im also starting back on Retin A micro which i know makes you more sensitive to the sun. Will my tan be uneven? Will it fuck it up?

Thats why a lot of black people on the beach still wear sunscreen, to avoid skin damage (wrinkles in the future).

I highly recommend not indoor tanning! It's not worth the risk of wrinkles and skin damage. Just imagine... When your 40 you will have wrinkled leathery skin and age spots. Yuck!
Just wear a low grade sunscreen when you're outside. It's safer than indoor tanning.

i can't remember fully, but they limit the UV spectrum to just the one that causes the tanning reaction (which is also the most damaing), basically your getting a full dose of the most damaging type of ray.
also your not wearing any sunscreen at all.
just get yourself some self tanner. the new ones are much better than the tacky old ones, they are smooth elegant and are not orangey.
