JERGENS natural glow

You guys – I’m sorry for a second that I have to be a typical Midwesterner and complain about the current state of our weather. But, what the heck is going on?! I know that I live in Northern Wisconsin, but 30 F as a high for mid-April and random bouts of snow showers is just not okay.

This usually is my favorite time of year because the sun is shining daily, and the temperatures finally are warm enough to sit outside and catch a few rays (with sunscreen on, of course!). While I don’t think I’m alone in this notion, I know that for me personally, I feel a heck of a lot better about myself and more confident when I’m able to get some sun and have a little bit of a tan. Well, since that clearly isn’t happening the natural way anytime soon, I’m turning to the next best thing.

I have been a fan of JERGENS® moisturizers since I was in high school. I remember that when I finally quit going to the tanning bed (the horror, I know), my mom got me hooked on using JERGENS® to still have a healthy glow to my skin. The products since have come such a long way and are better than ever – there’s something to suit every skin type and color! And, all the products easily can be found at your local Wal-Mart.

Since I’m pretty desperate for some color (and fast!), I’ve been reaching for the JERGENS® Natural Glow® 3 Days to Glow™ Moisturizer. I use the shade Light to Medium since I’m pretty pale and want to gradually work up to a deeper, darker tan.

Instead of guesstimating how much glow moisturizer to put into my hand for application, I simply dispense the glow moisturizer in a straight line down my arms, legs, and anywhere else I want to apply it.

I usually use a self-tanning mitt to make application quick and simple. And, I always use the gradual glow moisturizer sparingly around my elbows, knees and ankles. I make sure to blend the product in elsewhere first, and then whatever is leftover on the mitt I just lightly and quickly go over those areas to even things out.

If you’re not using a self-tanning mitt, make sure to wash your hands right away after application to avoid any leftover glow moisturizer on your hands. If you do have some color stain on your hands, apply a small amount of the JERGENS® Natural Glow® Color Primer In-Shower Scrub to your hands, rub them together, and wash your hands like normal. That should do the trick to remove any excess color from your hands!

Albeit not a permanent replacement for the actual sun (if it ever decides to show up), the gradual glow moisturizer has helped me create my own sunshine.

Now, if we could just get Mother Nature on our side, we’d be golden.
