Summer summer summertime! The time we have all been waiting for, school is out, the heat is on, and the sun is (hopefully) shining. Even though beach weekends are a new development for us, that doesn’t mean I will be coming back with a tan. I mean, I wish I had that natural glow to walk around with, but my natural shade is pale. Layers of sunscreen are my summertime shield!

Because skin cancer runs deep on my dad’s side of the family, I try to always err on the side of caution. Growing up though I didn’t take it seriously because when it came to the Italian gene pool, my brothers and sisters really inherited it all. I was the only one with light hair, light eyes, and I missed the olive skin train. It took me so long to embrace my natural skin tone. I used to tan, and dye my hair much darker to maybe blend in with the annual Christmas photo.
As I got older and wiser (well in some areas of life) I started to embrace my lighter features. But let’s be honest, we all look and feel better with a little glow, so I turn to gradual tanners. I have been a huge fan of JERGENS® for so many years. So when the JERGENS® Natural Glow® Wet Skin® Moisturizer came out I knew I had to give it a try. Jergens Natural Glow WSM is specially developed for use on wet skin. When blended with water, it glides on instantly to lock in moisture and gradually build natural-looking color each day.
I was so pleasantly surprised with this gradual tanner, not only is it super easy to use, but the technology is actually pretty cool. JERGENS Natural Glow Wet Skin Moisturizer capitalizes on that crucial moment when the skin is still wet and at its best state to receive the key benefits of moisturization and color. So I just shower like normal, shut off the water like normal, but instead of reaching for my towel and hopping out, I quickly add an even layer of moisturizer to my skin. Then I jump out and towel off. There is no color transfer to your crisp white towels as the DHA (the ingredient that creates the color) interacts with the proteins in your skin but there are no proteins in your towels!
I find it so much easier to create my own summer glow, by picking up a bottle from Walmart while getting all the other items on my list. I also like that the color develops over time, so once I see a natural result that I like and that compliments my skin tone I can just wait to apply another layer.
How do you get that summer beach glow? Are you a fan of gradual tanners? Have you tried this one?
I would love to hear your thoughts!
