Jergens® Natural Glow™ 3 Days To Glow™ Moisturizers are great moisturizers that provide very effective hydration. They contain the same moisturizing ingredients found in many other Jergens® lotions (for example: glycerin, and emollients) as well as Mango Butter and Vitamin E which are known to help moisturize skin. They have been specially formulated with a rich texture to leave your skin soft and smooth.

What are the color-enhancing ingredients and how do they work?

This product contains erythrulose and dihydroxyacetone (DHA). Although DHA is found in common sunless tanners, erythrulose is not typically found in common sunless tanners. It is used in prestige department store brand facial sunless tanning products. The ingredients that make up our Glow Perfecting® Complex provide more natural-looking skin color than sunless tanners, which typically contain only DHA.

Our research has optimized the combination of Erythrulose, DHA Rapid and DHA-R so that they work together to enhance and deepen your natural skin color. Erythrulose, DHA and DHA Rapid provide deeper skin color through chemical reactions called the Maillard Reaction. However, they deepen skin color at different rates of change and to different skin colorations. All three ingredients are safe for consumers for topical use.

How long will the effect last?

If use of the product is discontinued, skin color will begin to fade in a few days and be completely faded after about one to two weeks.

Will I eventually have to change to a darker shade?

Some people have switched to a darker shade with good results after first using a lighter shade formula. To find the right formula, make sure you're choosing the shade on the front of the package based on your natural skin tone or starting skin tone.

Will I get too dark? Will the color be even?

After three days of daily use, your skin should be about one shade darker. Use the product every other day or when you need a quick color boost. You can maintain your skin color with your favorite Jergens® Natural Glow™ Daily Moisturizer. Jergens® Natural Glow™ 3 Days To Glow™ Moisturizers gradually darken only the very top layers of your skin. Since the top layers of the skin naturally exfoliate to expose new skin cells, your skin will naturally reach a plateau. For best results, exfoliate before your first use and do not exfoliate more than once a week after you start using the product.

Can I use this every day? Can you jump to another shade for quicker effect?

Jergens® Natural Glow™ 3 Days To Glow™ Moisturizers are great for getting natural color fast. After three days of daily use, your skin should be about one shade darker.

Which formula shade should I choose?

Using the formula customized for your natural skin tone will ensure the most natural-looking color. Choose the Jergens® Natural Glow™ 3 Days to Glow™ Moisturizer formula that has the "STARTING POINT" color which most closely matches your natural skin tone. A good place to check for your natural skin tone is the inside (or underside) of your forearms, since these areas typically are not exposed to the sun.

Another way to choose your formula is to refer to your favorite facial foundation color.

  • If you typically use foundation colors that are fair or (light) medium (for example: Light Ivory, Ivory, Porcelain, Alabaster, Beige, Nude), then choose the “Jergens® Natural Glow™ 3 Days To Glow™ Moisturizer for Fair to Medium Skin Tones”.

How can I prevent my elbows and knees from becoming darker than the rest of my skin?

The skin on elbows and knees tends to be drier, with more layers of skin cells, and since the chemical reactions of skin darkening take place in the surface layers of skin, the color can concentrate in those areas. We suggest that you use a light application on your elbows and knees or use Jergens® Ultra Healing® Extra Dry Skin Moisturizer first to smooth the skin.

Can I use different skin tone formulas for my body and face?

Yes, you may use different skin tone formulas for your body and face if you feel using different formulas will provide the best matches for the skin tones of your body and face. However, using the same skin tone will most likely have the best results.

Most sunless tanners work within a few hours and it is difficult to correct missed or streaky areas.

Should I wash my hands after I apply it? How do I remove stains from my skin?
