Glad to hear your skin is looking better!  I had problems with adult acne (never had it as a teen) and finally took Accutane.

I know tanning does help… it is a great temporary fix..  so I’d keep it up until your wedding at least.  But unless you plan on going all the time… tanning will make your skin worse.  It does dry out your skin (which is good for the acne) but as soon as your skin has time to readjust it will overcompensate by producing more oil.

Anyway, have a blast at your wedding!

if it works for you, that’s great but I just wanted to point out some things.

if you use the most gentle-est brush (sensitive) at the lowest setting speed of clarisonic (speed 1), it’s still advisable not to use it twice a day and use the recommended once a day.  The reason being when you over cleanse and over exfoliate, you destroy the protective barrier of the skin (acid mantle) and strip your face of the oils, which sometimes stimulate excess sebum production and also escort environmental elements (dirt/pollution, and worst, free radicals) into the skin which is detrimental to the skin’s health. 

Lastly, there is no safe way to tan as UV rays not only causes injury and inflammation (hello hyperpigmentation, free radicals…cancer) but also causes premature photoaging. UVA rays penetrate deep into your skin and damages your fibroblast that produce collagen and elastin that keeps your skin plump and youthful.  They don’t grow back easily….wrinkles, sagging skin…

There are other products that help you prevent sebum overproduction, that are anti-inflammatory, and contain salicylic acid (a beta hydroxy acid that helps chemically exfoliate skin, stimulate cell turnover..), and also if you like that DRYING effect, there’s products that contain sulfure and helps dry out the breakout and that’s safe to use! 

Beauty is important, but not at the price of your health!

@skyla.arts:  1000+! You’re so right on about these things. And that’s right about the tanning/sun expsoure. Sure, we want to look great now, but we have to consider what we may look like in the future too.

Also, I just wanted to add that there’s a new acne brush head for the Clarisonic, which is now the gentlest one they offer. I found that the sensitive brush head was still too rough on my skin but the acne brush head is just right.

PS: You’re gorg!!
