While it may be true that your skin is more resistant to UVA and UVB-rays when we have a natural tan, the same does not apply to self tanning products.
The active ingredients in self-tanning products is called DHA. This chemical reacts with the protein in our skins outer layer and changes the pigmentation and stains it, thus creating a tanned look. Depending on your specific self-tanning product and its composition, the tan will either be lighter or darker. DHA doesn’t have any properties which would allow it to act in a protective way, and therefore it does not protect your skin from sun rays. However, there are some self-tanning products that contain SPF as an added ingredients, but most of them don’t.
