Great advice from @BeccyYork from Glo Tan- Mobile Spray Tanning & Training - Thank you for sharing this advice with us!
One of the most common questions when it comes to spray tanning is can I spray tan over sunburn?
Here's the thing. Skin that has burned will inevitably peel. Covering it with a spray tan certainly won't look pretty and it will not protect your skin from further sun damage either.
If you apply a spray tan over your sunburned skin, the visual impact of it as it peels will be much higher, considering the contract between brown and pale skin will be far more noticeable. It can be a little too dramatic!!
Spray tanning is known to accelerate the peeling process. Besides, with your skin being so stressed thanks to that sunburn, covering it up with a chemical solution is not the best idea. Your skin is likely going to be very sensitive at that point, so you'd be wasting a good spray tan that would otherwise have looked amazing and lasted much, much longer., on skin that is not ready for it.
Give your skin time to heal naturally. It peels because your body needs to get rid of the dead tissue before it can generate a new skin tissue. Once you feel your skin is back to normal, then you should book your spray tan session with us.
