My heritage is decidedly pale: Finnish, Swedish, Irish, and German. I am typically a purply shade of fair skin that requires a lot of sun protection and therefore, I don’t develop any sort of tan throughout the summer without a proper burn first. Now that I’m trying to combat wrinkles and aging, I stay out of the sun completely—which means no tan skin for me unless it’s by artificial means. There is one thing that I have been using for almost 12 years now that helps me stay on top of being tan throughout the summer, and that is Jergens Natural Glow Daily Moisturizer.

I remember the first time reading about Jergens Natural Glow Daily Moisturizer in some teen magazine eons ago, and I was instantly hooked. Self-tanners were not the easiest to apply on your own and for someone who doesn’t live anywhere near water, I normally only wanted my feet, legs or arms to be tan at any given time.
After reading the article, I rushed out immediately to buy Jergens Natural Glow Daily Moisturizer and honestly have never stopped stashing a few bottles in my bathroom cabinet since 2006.
The greatest thing about Jergens Natural Glow Daily Moisturizer is that the color develops gradually, which means no stained hands and you don’t get self-tanner all over your clothes after applying. Typically, I will take a shower and use Jergens Natural Glow Daily Moisturizer like a lotion and can see my color build every day I use it!
I also love that you can continue to layer on Jergens Natural Glow Daily Moisturizer to reach your desired level of darkness over time; it even comes in two shade ranges: Fair to Medium and Medium to Tan. If I want to be super tan by the weekend, I start a Medium to Tan lotion regime on Monday and continue once a day to achieve my desired result. If I want a medium tan, I’ll start in the middle of the week and apply once a day.
Regardless of how tan your base skin tone is, you will definitely develop a color that is true to you and your lifestyle. If you don’t have Jergens Natural Glow Daily Moisturizer in your bathroom right now, consider this your official invitation to get the best and healthiest tan ever this summer!
