The Best Smelling Self-Tanner You’ll Ever Try
Tired of the notorious 'fake tan' smell that lingers after your self-tanning routine? The unpleasant odor, courtesy of DHA, often turns a beauty ritual into a smelly chore. But fear not, we've cracked the code.
If you’re anything like us and love to self-tan, but can't stand the smell that most self-tanners have – this is for you.
The Dreaded Smell: How DHA and Your Skin React
Dihydroxyacetone (DHA), the key active ingredient in self-tanners, is known for its distinctive and not-so-pleasant aroma. The magic (and sometimes the challenge) of self-tanning lies in the chemical reaction between your skin and DHA. What is DHA, you ask? It's a colorless sugar that interacts with the amino acids in the dead skin cells on the outermost layer of your skin.
When you apply a self-tanner containing DHA, it begins to react with these amino acids and results in the formation of compounds called melanoidins that are responsible for the brown color that gives you a sun-kissed tan.
However, the same reaction that produces the desired tan also produces an odor. This smell is often described as slightly sweet or biscuit-like, but it can turn unpleasant when it mingles with the natural scent of your skin. These compound reactions are the reason for the characteristic odor associated with self-tanning.
