tanning and acne?

i know tanning is becoming something of a worry to many. as it should be because of the risks involved. i hardly ever go to a tanning salon. the last time i did, it was for my junior year prom. well i decided to go the tanning salon and get a month membership. i didnt just buy the membership because my skin is as white as the virgin snow (its not really that bad) but also because i wanted to see if it would temporarly help my acne. let me just say it did help, my face looked AWESOME!!! im feeling pretty good right now. im more tan, i have a clear face and my confidence is soaring. 

after this month, im not going to buy another. i dont want to become addicted and its not the best for your skin.

im just curious.. have you experienced this? has you acne, whether mild or severe, cleared up because of tanning?

Personally I have never tanned, so I wouldn't know if it improves your skin.  But, the bacteria and oil that tend to come along with acne don't do well under UV light.  In fact, some labs use UV light to sterilize their intruments.  It makes sense that it would work, i've for sure heard of other people having success with it.
