Stop watching your self tanner
Other self tanners rely on heavy instant bronzers to make up for their low DHA. They wash off immediately and transfer easily onto clothes/sheets.
(dihydroxyacetone) is the active ingredient in self tanners. It reacts with amino acids on the skins surface to darken the skin.
The average DHA concentration in self tanners is 5-8%. The maximum concentration of DHA skin can absorb at once is 14%.
