Anne Gets Glowing this Spring

It’s been a long, cold winter, and the weather is finally starting to warm up here in the D.C. area. And warmer weather means it’s time to dust the moth balls off the spring clothes stowed away for the winter (but seriously, does anyone use moth balls anymore?).

I’m a HUGE fan of bright colors, and one of my favorite spring outfits features a bright pink sleeveless shirt, which one of my coworkers says reminds her of something Barbie would wear. I’m taking that as a compliment. But what I don’t think is a good thing is how washed out the shirt makes me look when I try it on after a long, sun-free winter. Seriously, my pale skin looks positively sickly up against the bright pink, which is one of the primary reasons why the shirt gets stored away.

But despite the temperature still being a tad chilly at times (hence the blazer in the picture below), this year, I didn’t need to wait until the sun was high in the sky to bust out my bright pink top! To keep a natural-looking, light tan, I’ve continued to use my Jergens Natural Glow products in Fair to Medium over the past month, and it’s made a big difference.


The Fair to Medium color looks extremely natural — not like I’ve been lounging around on the beaches of Maui, but more like I’ve been able to soak up a little Vitamin D on a sun-filled weekend. Check out the nice glow on my decolletage up against my bright turquoise necklace!


That amount of glow is perfect for breaking into spring, and as summer approaches, I’ll probably “graduate” on to the Medium to Dark shade to get a deeper (safe) tan.

Personally, I’m a woman of little patience, so the Jergens Natural Glow 3 Days to Glow Moisturizer has won over my heart. That way, I don’t have to worry about waiting to get my subtle tan, and it also makes up for the days in between applications, since I don’t always have time (or remember) to slather on lotion in the mornings when running around simultaneously getting myself and my 9-month-old daughter ready for the day. Now, I can get my glow on and spend more time on what’s important — figuring out what I’m going to wear.

When you wear that perfect outfit, you look and feel radiant. With that in mind, Jergens Skincare has partnered with celebrated stylist Kate Young to create Pinterest boards of image inspiration.
