DHA + Sunscreen = BFF

PROTECT YOUR SKIN WITH SUNLESS TANNING INGREDIENTS

We know you’re all about that summer glow, but we also understand that sun damage is a major concern. With summer just around the corner, we want to make sure your skin stays happy, healthy, and youthful for many years to come! So we did a little digging and discovered some exciting news about the sunless tanning ingredient (DHA).

DHA PROVIDES ADDITIONAL SUN PROTECTION WHEN COMBINED WITH SUNSCREEN

According to this study from PubMed, DHA is known to protect against long-wave ultraviolet radiation (UVA) and visible light. But get this - the study showed that DHA also offers a modest sun protection factor (SPF) in humans!

So, what does this mean for you? It means self-tanning just got better! Here's the lowdown.


THE BENEFITS OF DHA

The study tested the sun protection factor (SPF) provided by dihydroxyacetone (DHA), the main ingredient in self-tanner, over 7 days. They found that DHA does provide some SPF for your skin! The SPF decreases as the tanner wears off your skin, but the study found that there's still a layer of SPF on day 7.

PAIR SUNLESS TANNING WITH SUNSCREEN

While DHA can’t replace traditional SPF, it can give you a base layer of sun protection against the sun's harmful rays. Your spray tan and everyday sunscreen lotion are the dynamic duo of the summer for healthy, sun-kissed skin as you age!

We believe you don't have to choose between a beautiful tan and your skin's health! Just stick to your regular tanning appointments and apply sunscreen daily. Not only will you get that amazing glow you're after, but you'll also have an extra layer of protection for your skin.
