We do not recommend spray tanning if you’ve experienced a sunburn in the past four weeks (even if it’s no longer visible). No, a spray tan won’t “cover up” or “even out” the damage. It will do the opposite! A sunburn is a result of trauma to the skin from UV & UVB rays. This reaction occurs in the outermost layer of the skin- the same layer where DHA, the active tanning ingredient, works hand in hand with your cells to create a browning effect. When those cells are damaged, they will produce an unfavorable result.
Spraying over a sunburn will cause the damaged skin to peel + a patchy, uneven outcome😬 some areas may grab darker.
WHAT DO I DO IF I HAVE A SUNBURN?

Don't peel your skin! Let it heal naturally
Protect your skin from further damage (protective clothing, sunscreen)
