DHA: The Secret Sauce Behind That Sun-Kissed Glow

DHA: The Secret Sauce Behind That Sun-Kissed Glow
Hello, Glow-Getters!

You've been there – standing in front of a mirror, admiring that radiant, fresh-from-vacation look without actually hopping on a plane. Yes, we're talking about the wonders of a spray tan. But what's the magic potion that makes it all possible? Introducing: DHA.

1. DHA 101: What’s the Buzz?

DHA (Dihydroxyacetone) is a clear compound derived from plant sources like sugar cane and sugar beets. It’s like the fairy godmother of the tanning world. Once applied, it gets all chatty with the amino acids in your skin’s top layer, leading to that coveted bronzed look.

2. How DHA Works its Glow Magic

Playful Chemistry: It's all about the Maillard reaction (but let's keep it simple). DHA and your skin's proteins have a little party, the result is a range of tan hues that appear on your skin.

Watch the Glow Grow: The tan starts making its entrance between 2-4 hours after application, reaching its grand debut around 24-48 hours later. Just like waiting for a surprise package, the anticipation is part of the fun! Since it only tans the top layer of your skin, as these cells naturally exfoliate, your tan will gracefully fade away, making room for your next glow-up.

3. Safety First, Sun-Savvy: A spray tan might make you look like you’ve spent a week on a beach, but remember, it doesn't come with built-in sun protection. Keep your skin sun-safe always! We suggest S+B Sheer Sunscreen

Glow & Tell

With DHA in your corner, you're all set for that sun-kissed, just-back-from-Santorini glow, even if the furthest you've traveled lately is from the couch to the fridge. So here's to you, ready to glow and steal the show!

Stay radiant, stay fabulous, and always glow with the flow!
