With Summer quickly approaching I am ready to put away the hoodies and pants for cute summer dresses and shorts. My skin though? It's looking more like December. My half Irish skin rarely tans, it just burns! I slather on SPF like no tomorrow, but that doesn't mean I don't love the look of a sun-kissed glow. With JERGENS® Natural Glow® Wet Skin® Moisturizer you can gradually create your own sunshine, right from your shower -- without the hassle of your typical sunless tanning products. Here is how this pale girl gets a Summer glow!

JERGENS® Natural Glow Daily Moisturizer has been my go-to sunless tanner for YEARS. I have been a faithful user since it was first released in 2005. Now they have gone and made it even easier to get natural-looking color straight from the shower with JERGENS® Natural Glow® Wet Skin® Moisturizer.

One step to tan moisturized skin? I am all about anything that cuts down the time of my lengthy beauty routine!

I always begin my self-tanning routine with exfoliating. This will get rid of dead skin and smooth any dry areas like elbows, knees, or feet which can pick up excess color. I like to use a sugar scrub in the shower or a dry body brush beforehand.

JERGENS® Natural Glow® Wet Skin® Moisturizer 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 picked up JERGENS® Natural Glow® Wet Skin® Moisturizer in the Body Lotion Aisle at Walmart.
My shade is Fair to Medium, it also comes in Medium to Tan. Used daily in place of your regular moisturizer you can achieve beautiful, natural-looking color. Then switch off to every other day to maintain your color.

This is not an instant or bronzing product, but a gradual glow product. Gradual color will develop in 3-5 days. I really enjoy being able to build up the color to the level of tan that I want. There is no risk of over-doing it.

After I am done showering I immediately apply a quarter-size amount of JERGENS® Natural Glow® Wet Skin® Moisturizer to each leg and a dime-size to my arms. The light scent is lovely, it's one of the least offensive smelling self-tanning products I have tried.

I apply sparingly to dry areas like elbows or knees to minimize color absorption. You can even put a little of your regular moisturizer on those areas so that not as much of the self-tan is absorbed.

Then just towel dry and get dressed. Yep, it's that easy guys! Patting the skin dry is also the key to achieving streak-free, natural-looking color. It WILL NOT stain your 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! Make sure to wash hands after.

After just 3 days of use my skin looks healthier with a natural glow. The golden color is so flattering! It even helps to conceal imperfections. All of those insecurities like cellulite or the fact that I haven't worked out as much this month are put aside when you feel good about your skin.

I can accept my pale complexion, but in the Summer a sunkissed glow is that extra boost of confidence that makes you feel like a glowing goddess!

Knowing that I am protecting my skin from sun damage also gives me peace of mind. Laying out in the sun for hours only ever turned me a bright shade of red. Sun damage from UV rays and tanning beds will make your skin look worse in the long run. It just isn't worth the risk when you can get natural looking color so easily - no sun required.

Will JERGENS Natural Glow Wet Skin Moisturizer be a part of your sunless Summer beauty routine?
