Natural sunlight is good for skin in small doses and provided you're being sun smart.
Sunbeds (solariums) mimic the sun but can be just as damaging if not more so.
Be careful if you have sensitive skin and follow the appropriate aftercare just as though you've been in the sun.

I've always used Designer Skin Black, and it works really well to tan you, and it doesn't irritate eczema. I also started on a 4 minute bed and worked my up to 12.

I've heard from a few people to try sunbeds as I used to have extremely bad eczema on my hands and arms. Supposedly the sunbed minimises the eczema, someone I knows friend tried it and she had really bad eczema and it almost completely went away. Hope this helps :)

I use a sunbed mainly to keep a decent completion. A slight tan is obviously the outcome of using beds, but I started on them because my skin was dry/flaky in places & quite an uneven tone. It works wonders. I use them for only 3 min at a time & have a lotion. Moisturise after using & make sure it's for sensitive skin. I know the dangers of using sunbeds, but be sensible & chances are you'll be fine.

I have had eczema since I was about 5. It has gotten really bad since the winter, worse then is has ever been. I recently started to try tanning beds and I found the first time I went really helped. I also found that there is a new bed called 'red light therapy'. Same kind of bed but no you've rays. It suppose to help wrinkles, pimples and eczema. The girl that works at the salon showed me a burn she had on her leg that has almost disappeared from use of the red light bed. I have tried it a couple of times and like it. I tried the cream for the regular you've bed and it makes me break out in hives after the red light bed. But all in all I would say. Try the red light bed. It might help.
