Having a sunless tan does not protect your skin from UV rays. There is minimal protection for your skin simply having a sunless tan. Consider it like having a sunscreen of SPF 2 on your skin. You may also see strange colorations to your skin after being exposed to UV light and having a deep tan from a sunless tanning product.
Always use the proper sunscreen if you want to spend time out in the sun. Use at least an SPF of 15 or more as needed.
