tanning progress pictures.

So I've had plaque psoriasis for the last 13 years or so. It comes and goes with and without medication but the last 2 years, it's been pretty bad (for me.) I don't have insurance to visit a dermatologist and can't get any prescription medications. It's been bothering me a lot lately in an emotional sense more than anything and causing serious self-esteem issues so I decided to start going tanning.

I went back in 2007 slightly regularly (I had a package of 200 minutes that I used up) and it cleared my P up pretty well so I thought I'd try again. It's pretty cheap seeing as I can't tan for too long each session being so fair-skinned and all. I only pay about $5 a session. I've only been able to go 3 times now (every other day, 10 minutes each time) but have to wait until next week because $$ is tight this week. I'll come back and update with progress pictures then but I just thought I'd share progress pictures from the first three sessions.

My face doesn't tan as quickly as the rest of my body so I just took "before" pictures of that and will update it after I notice some change.

I know there are people against tanning in general and that it's not for everyone. It's just an option that helps me since I can't afford to get medicine for it. Has anyone else used tanning and gotten good results?
