benzoyl peroxide and sun tan effects?

Hey there everyone,

Have you noticed when using benzoyl peroxide that your skin does not tan as well?

Before I used to have acne,(12,13), my skin used to tan very well and I would get a golden brown tan(mediterranean decent). But it seems ever since I have goten acne(mild/extremelly moderate at times) my face does not tan as well as it used to. My body tans really well, but my face is always alot whiter. I realize your face might not always tan as well as your body, but I think that it is much lighter than my body. Has this happend to any of you?

Also, have you noticed that while on benzoyl peroxide your skin is actually lighter than before you went on it? (Maybe its just me) But it seems my face is whiter than it should be. Perhaps it is the combo of dry skin in the winter and the creams and washing I do? Also, my skin is oilyer than it was back in those days.. Anyways what are your thoughts/experiences?
