Tanning & acne

currently, i am using diferin acne medication, and i have been for the past three years or so. i was thinking about going tanning in a bed, but after reading other posts about how horrible it is for your skin, i'm starting to think i shouldnt, even though im sooo tempted.

i was thinking, if i put a towel over my face to block the bad UV rays, would that prevent the damage? or am i doomed to being pale foreverrrrrr?

Putting a towel over your face will result in a pasty face/orange body combo. It'll look weird, to say the least. Skip the tanning and stay pale. Nobody wants to look like a crinkled brown paper bag when they're old anyway.

Not to mention tanning beds are worse than the Sun. At least you can get vitamin D outside.
