Question Skin around mouth won't tan.

I've been tanning for quite some time. Probably about 2 years or so. About 3 months ago I noticed that the area around my mouth isn't tanning.
I'm not sure if it's maybe because I might forget to put lotion in that exact area, but I do put it on my face ..or if it's maybe because of the acne products that I use?
It just looks kind of stupid if I don't have make-up on. Or could it be a skin condition?

*btw, I was using Murad Acne complex, but have switched to Clean & Clear Advantage. (Just in case that might have something to do with it)

Re: Skin around mouth won't tan.

If you are using any lip balm with an SPF in it that may be the reason.
I know when i tan and use my lip balm, i get it on my skin not just my lips. That is why it doesnt tan for me.
Hope this helps.

Re: Skin around mouth won't tan.

If I use lip balm with SPF its only right before I get in the bed. I am wondering if the one you are using is, for the lack of a better word, "leaching" into the skin surrounding the lips?

Otherwise blemish treatment topicals often work by drying out the skin and dry skin does not like to tan well. I looked up the products you used and there was no mention of them containing SPF.

Re: Skin around mouth won't tan.

Are u putting on a lipstick earlier in the day that maybe has some SPF properties in it?

Re: Skin around mouth won't tan.

I only use lip glosses. I do use them throughout the day, but none of them have any SPF properties that I know of. I use a lot of Avon and Mark cosmetics. I did, however, tan without make-up (powder) on yesterday and I do think it helped some. I usually don't have time to take it off before I go.
Could this be it? It just seems weird though, if it is, why it would only not tan in that one area?
