In brief: No
Tanning the skin is not known to alter raynaud's disease.
Symptoms can be triggered by emotional stress and cold temperatures. During tanning, the temperature would be warm, and so would make raynaud's phenomenon less likely to occur at that time. Also, if being tanned makes one happier, there may be less emotional stress to trigger symptoms.
