has anyone tried tanning beds?

and yeah, yeah, i am aware of the risks of skin cancer etc. But i am not talking about frequent use, just a few trips to the salon to use articial tanning.

I heard this has helped clear some peoples skin.

I have mild acne, red pimples on my cheeks that just wont seem to go!

Because it mild acne doc wont prescribe drugs as can make skin worse, like the oxytetracycline did, and I dont want my skin to get worse?

So has anyone tried tanning beds t to help clear spots?

Im gonna try for a 15minute session.

Yeah, I use to - I don't think it made a noticeable difference. Natural sunlight seems to do a better job.

Also, stay away from those "super" beds (that have like, 8-10 min MAX times)... they made my acne far far worse
