Chemical Peeling then taking a tan

Hi everyone, I have had moderate to severe acne for the past 3 years. Heres my question. Like everyone else, Ive tried everything from oral antibiotics, to o-t-c stuff. I get new pimples everyday I wake up. Nothing has really worked but there was one incident this year where I had no acne for about 4 weeks straight. I know this may sound insane but, this happened when I had chemical peeling done and then went to the tanning salon the next day. I know thats like one of the worst things you could do, but for some reason I tried it because I thought it would cover up the red scars. One, do any of you think this is just a conincidence. Two, I know your not suppose to expose your skin to the sunlight after peeling but, do you think that maybe it had an double effect of getting the uv rays further into the skin and killing of the p.acnes because of the thinner skin layer?
