Question: i have worked in a tanning salon before and know that a good base tan will help ensure a longer lasting tan. will the spray tan be like a base tan that will help tanning in the sun better?

Answer: Absolutely not! Spray tanning is only cosmetic and does not produce any melanin in the skin. Your skin is totally unprotected against sun's rays even though it is brown after spray tanning.

The only way that a spray tan can protect you from getting sunburned is that you might be much more sensible about sun tanning since you are already "tanned" and you might be more inclined to build up a natural tan slowly.
