The best tan is a safe, sunless tan but how do you achieve a golden glow without looking like an Oompa Loompa or worse? Jergens Natural Glow Skincare has launched a breakthrough collection of products to create a beautiful, even tan in an instant. To help you get that enviable glow we all love. Jergens have kindly shared their tips with us:
In three easy steps, get same day transformational results with the new Jergens Natural Glow Primer In-Shower-Scrub and Jergens Natural Glow Instant Sun Sunless Tanning Mouse to deliver natural-looking colour better and faster while keeping it longer with Jergens Natural Glow Tan Extender Daily Moisturiser.
These revolutionary tools work together to achieve and maintain a beautiful tan from start to finish. With an easy Prime, Colour, and Preserve regimen, it’s simple to prep skin and create a captivating colour that lasts up to 7 days.
STEP 1: PRIME
No matter which fake tan you use, it’s only as good as the canvas you work from. To prep your skin for a perfect tan, hit the shower with an exfoliant and some muscle strength. Stay away from oil based or moisturising exfoliants, as the oil will repel your fake tan when you apply it.
Jergens Natural Glow Colour Primer In-Shower Scrub features a unique dual-action formula that resurfaces and prepares skin right in the shower. Featuring an amino fruit extract complex, this exfoliating primer smoothes rough patches to create a perfectly polished canvas and improves colour adhesion so you can achieve a perfectly blended colour.
The first thirty minutes after you shower is the best time to get your glow on. When the skin is clean and starting to cool it’s at its best to react with the tanning agent, as well as being super absorbent and soft.
Apply moisturiser to the driest parts of your skin, such as your elbows, knees, ankles, toes, and knuckles, as these tend to absorb the self-tan better than other parts.
STEP 2: COLOUR
Choose a colour that goes with your skin tone: light for fair skin, light/medium for skin that burns then turns tan, medium for normal tan skin, and deep dark for those with a naturally dark complexion. Never go too dark, especially if you have blonde hair or are naturally fair. You don’t want to end up like this poor woman:
Or orange like this lady:
There are a few ways you can apply fake tan. You can use gloves, start by rubbing a small amount evenly over where you want the fake tan. You can use a tanning mitt (which we highly recommend), apply using a sweeping circular motion for even coverage or you can use your bare hands, moisturise your hands first, apply tan, then wash and exfoliate thoroughly, so you don’t end up with weird, brown, uneven hands.
Natural Glow Instant Sun Sunless Tanning Mousse creates a flawless, natural-looking colour instantly with this airy mousse that applies evenly and dries in just 60 seconds. Formulated with an Advanced Colour Complex, Instant Sun Sunless Tanning Mousse works with your unique skin tone to mimic the same colour results you’d get from the sun.
STEP 3: EXTEND
To make sure your faux tan goes the distance, you need to keep your skin hydrated from both the outside and the inside. This means drinking plenty of water and applying moisturiser on the daily.
By using Natural Glow Tan Extender Daily Moisturiser daily, in place of your regular moisturiser. With fade-fighting technology, the moisture-infused formula helps skin maintain its flawless glow and delays inevitable colour fade.
