  • dont use cocoa butter as it holds in the heat and keeps the area burning - best thing is aloe vera gel or mosturiser with aloe in it. However I dont know if a spray tan etc would cover it.

  • I was using the green ice 100% aloe vera until someone on here recommended the cocoa butter...said it would keep me from peeling and turn the redness to tan

  • I was told by a lady that taking pepsi and pouring it on a sunburn would help ,(haven't tried it but she swears by it) but as far as spray tans I am no help cause I don't do them, I don't burn easy ,but do tan easy so I am naturally dark just from sunlight, good luck momma, I hope you find something to help you.

  • I have done that when I burned did a spray tan if it isn't horrible it will work. Aloe will eventually take the red out it might tan over
