Kinda, it depends on your skin type and your bodies ability to produce melanin, there’s 2 kinds your body makes, eumelanin (brown) and phaeomelanin (yellow-red)

Light skinned people don’t produce as much brown melanin as they do the yellow-red, so they’re more likely to look sunburned before tan…

It’ll also depend on the exposure amounts and times, this was asked ok the askscience page if u wanna dig
