Accutane! Want to look nice

Recommended Posts

Hello Everyone,

Just wondering if anybody can help me.

This is my first time on accutane and i was just wondering if i can use fake tan.

I feel so pasty as i cannot go in the sun, am going away this weekend with my boyfriend and just want to feel better about myself.

Will the tan look ok? Will it make my spots worse?

Can anyone help.?xxxx

i thought i remembered see some neutrogena self-tanner on a store-shelf. if its made by neutrogena you should be a-okay with skin issues. (or at least i would hope so!)

i have no idea about spraying though.

I've used Loreal Sublime Bronze, but just on my legs. It's been fine. I'd just make sure to really moisturize well before putting on the tanner to make sure it goes on evenly.

im on my fourth month of accutane and i went to the salon and got spray tans for prom! i like u felt pasty since i couldnt go tanning bed tanning, and the spray salon tan lookeed great! I had no problems with it, just make sure you exfoliate your ENTIRE body beforehand to remove all the dead skin cells and it stayed on for 1-2 weeks

I also did the neutrogena and jergens gradual tan which works to, but if you want that instant glow i reccommend a spray tan!

I hope this answers you question and all goes well :)

It's not recommended to exfoliate your skin while on Tane unless it is done very lightly. But if you're doing any fake tanning, you want to exfoliate well. It's kind of twofold, so you have to make the judgment on your own if you think your skin can stand up to a good scrub.

You might want to check out whether or not the lotion is comedogenic or oil-based. You don't want to put anything oily on your skin as it might cause you to break out.

Thanks for getting back to me.

Tried it over the weekend and it really wasent worth the money.Went on well, but a slight orange tinch sprang to mind.

Oh well, worth a shot.

9 weeks in now and getting frustrated.Still no results.

How long was it until you started to see a difference in your skin? x

I relised once it was on.My skin didnt seem dry but the next morning it had stuck to my dry patches.

Lovely, not!

Maybe wil wait until the tane is over.

Thanks for your reply x

Thanks Bittersweet.

Looked ok, but not great.

Will stick to being a bit pastey until the accutane is completed.

Thanks againx
