What are the sunscreen ingredients and SPF levels in the product? Are they safe for use?

JERGENS® Natural Glow® Face Daily Moisturizer Sunscreens contain 6.0% Octinoxate and 2.0% Oxybenzone. These FDA approved sunscreen ingredients are commonly used in many sunscreen products and are safe when used properly. Some people are known to experience reactions from sunscreen ingredients and if you are one of them, consult your doctor before using this product.

This product is for external use only. Avoid eye contact. If eye contact occurs, rinse thoroughly with water. Do not apply to broken skin. If rash or irritation develops and lasts, stop use and consult a doctor. Keep out of reach of children. If swallowed, get medical help or contact a Poison Control Center immediately.

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

JERGENS® Natural Glow® Face Daily Moisturizer Sunscreens are lightweight, oil-free, non-comedogenic moisturizers that are great for any skin type. The formula, containing color-enhancing ingredients (dihydroxyacetone, or DHA, and Erythrulose), begins to subtly and gradually deepen your natural skin tone in a few days.

What is a sunscreen? How often should I apply to stay protected?

A sunscreen is an ingredient that helps protect the skin from the sun's ultraviolet (UV) radiation. JERGENS® Natural Glow® Face Daily Moisturizer Sunscreens contain sunscreen ingredients that protect against harmful sun rays, which can cause sunburn.

For proper color development, wait at least 3 hours after applying JERGENS® Natural Glow® Face Daily Moisturizer Sunscreen before engaging in activities such as swimming, or exercising.

If you will be outside for prolonged sun exposure, apply 15-20 minutes before sun exposure. Reapply at least every 2 hours after activities such as swimming, sweating, and continuous sun exposure. (If color change becomes too intense, we recommend using a non-glow sunscreen for continuous sun protection.)

What does the SPF stand for? What does the SPF number indicate?

SPF stands for Sun Protection Factor. The SPF of a sunscreen is a laboratory measure of the effectiveness of a sunscreen; the higher the SPF number, the more protection is offered against sun rays that can cause sunburn.

(Specifically, the SPF number describes the number of minutes an average person can remain exposed to the sun wearing a sunscreen, without getting sunburned.)

The protected length of time is dependent on the length of time it takes an individual to sunburn without a sunscreen—and this varies greatly from person to person.

Do JERGENS® Natural Glow® Face Daily Moisturizer Sunscreens provide UVA protection?

The active sunscreen ingredients in the product are designed primarily to provide protection from UVB rays. However, it does provide some level of UVA protection.

What is the difference between UVA protection and UVB protection?

Both types of protection are important. UVB sunscreens protect against wavelengths that penetrate the outer layers of the skin that lead to immediate effects such as sunburn and may contribute to skin cancer. UVA sunscreens protect against wavelengths that penetrate deeper into the skin causing longer term damage. Damage in these deeper layers contributes to premature skin aging and may contribute to skin cancer.

Will the color be natural on my skin?

To provide more natural-looking skin color than other sunless tanners, which typically contain only DHA, JERGENS® Natural Glow® Healthy Complexion Daily Facial Moisturizer uses a combination of DHA and Erythrulose. And together, they subtly enhance and gradually deepen your natural skin color. The result is natural-looking color.

When will I start to see color on my skin?

It will depend on how often you apply the product and how much you use, but if used daily you should start to see color in as little as three days and become a full shade darker in just one week. If color is not as noticeable as desired, apply more frequently or try the darker shade.

Is this an effective moisturizer?

JERGENS® Natural Glow® Face Daily Moisturizer Sunscreens are lightweight, oil-free, non-comedogenic moisturizers that are great for any skin type.

How often should I apply this product? Can I jump to a darker shade for a quicker effect?

For best results, you should apply the Moisturizers every day. A gradual, natural-looking color will result after about 1 week of continued use. If desired, try a darker formula, but the results may not be as natural-looking.

What happens if I stop using the product? How long will the color stay on my skin?

If you stop using JERGENS® Natural Glow® Face Daily Moisturizer Sunscreens your skin color will begin to fade in a few days and be completely faded after about one to two weeks.

Why does the color on my face sometimes not match the color on my body?

The difference in color is a result of a variety of factors. To start, facial skin can be thinner than body skin, can exfoliate at a different rate, and is exposed to different environmental conditions than body skin. Because of this, our face products have been formulated to match facial skin tones. We use a different blend of our skin-darkening ingredients for the face products than the body products to give you a healthy summer glow.

Which formula should I choose?

Using the formula customized for your natural skin tone will ensure the most natural-looking color. To find your natural skin tone, look at the inside (or underside) of your forearms, since these areas are not typically exposed to the sun.

Refer to the color charts on the back of the packages and choose the one with a "STARTING POINT" color that most closely matches your natural skin tone.

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, Light Beige, Nude), then choose the JERGENS® Natural Glow® Face Daily Moisturizer Sunscreen for Fair to Medium Skin Tones.

If you typically use foundation colors that are (darker) medium or tan (for example: Medium Beige, Tan, Caramel), then choose the JERGENS® Natural Glow® Face Daily Moisturizer Sunscreen for Medium to Tan Skin Tones.

Will I eventually have to change to a darker shade?

No. Some people have switched to a darker shade with good results after first using a light shade formula. To find the right formula, make sure you're choosing your shade based on your natural skin tone or starting skin tone and the starting shade on the back of the package.

Can I use JERGENS® Natural Glow® Face Daily Moisturizer Sunscreens all over my body?

This product was specially designed for use on the face, but for a head-to-toe glow, JERGENS® Natural Glow® Daily Moisturizers are the perfect complement.

How is the Face moisturizer different from the Body Moisturizers?

The Healthy Complexion formula is completely different; it is lightweight, dermatologist-tested, quick absorbing, non-comedogenic, and oil-free. The
skin-darkening complex in this formula has been formulated to complement the Body formula result. The Healthy Complexion product also contains sunscreen ingredients to help shield skin from daily sun exposure.

How would JERGENS® Natural Glow® Face Daily Moisturizer Sunscreens fit into a daily regimen? How do I apply to my face?

If using in the evening, apply this product to a freshly cleansed face. Wait for the product to dry before applying other products or going to sleep. If using in the morning, it should be applied to a freshly cleansed face. Wait for product to dry before applying make-up. Carefully blend into hairline and jaw line for most natural-looking effect. Avoid putting product on eyebrows. Do not exfoliate more than once a week.

How long should I wait before I get dressed or apply makeup?

After applying JERGENS® Natural Glow® Face Daily Moisturizer Sunscreens, allow several minutes for it to dry prior to getting dressed or applying make-up. This will prevent any lotion from rubbing off on clothes and ensure even coverage on the skin.

Can I use another moisturizer with this product? Can I use my acne treatments with this product?

You may use another facial moisturizer or your acne treatment with this product, but apply JERGENS® Natural Glow® Face Daily Moisturizer Sunscreen first and allow it to dry completely.

Can I use a different skin tone formula 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, by using the same skin tone formula, you will most likely have the best results.

Can I use a sunscreen with this product?

JERGENS® Natural Glow® Face Daily Moisturizer Sunscreens contain sunscreen ingredients to help shield skin from daily sun exposure while delivering an optimum amount of naturally-looking color. If desired, a sunscreen product offering greater SPF protection can be used. Be sure to apply JERGENS® Natural Glow® Face Daily Moisturizer Sunscreen first and allow it to dry completely before applying another sunscreen.

I am not seeing any skin color change, am I doing something wrong?

Everyone's color development can be different. Try using a darker formula shade and apply more often.

I seem to have an orange color, what happened?

This is likely from overuse of the product. Try using a lighter shade formula or use less of the product. You may be able to use it every other day instead of daily.

When is the best time to apply?

JERGENS® Natural Glow® Face Daily Moisturizer Sunscreens can be applied any time of day, but allow 3 hours before exercise, swimming, or showering. For best results apply to freshly cleansed and exfoliated skin. This will help ensure natural-looking, even color.

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

After one week of daily use, your skin should be about one shade darker. Continue to use the product daily or every other day, so that the color will be maintained and skin tone will remain even. JERGENS® Natural Glow® Face Daily Moisturizer Sunscreens gradually darken only the very top layers of your skin. And since the top layers of skin cells naturally exfoliate to expose new skin cells, your skin color will naturally reach a plateau. Regular use of JERGENS® Natural Glow® Face Daily Moisturizer Sunscreens will ensure evenness of skin color.

Can I use this product even in the winter? What shade should I choose?

JERGENS® Natural Glow® Face Daily Moisturizer Sunscreens can be used all year round. You may find that you should go one shade lighter in the winter or use the shade you normally use in the summer every other day instead of every day. Using the formula customized for your natural skin tone will ensure the most natural-looking color. To find your natural skin tone, look at the inside (or underside) of your forearms, since these areas are not typically 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, Light Beige, Nude), then choose the JERGENS® Natural Glow® Face Daily Moisturizer Sunscreen for Fair to Medium Skin Tones formula.

If you typically use foundation colors that are (darker) medium or tan (for example: Medium Beige, Tan, Caramel), then choose the JERGENS® Natural Glow® Face Daily Moisturizer Sunscreen for Medium to Tan Skin Tones formula.

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

You should wash your hands to prevent unwanted color on your palms or potential stains on clothes. If you have any unwanted color on your skin, it will wear off in a few days or you can use a body or facial scrub to remove it.

Is this safe to use?

There are no safety concerns besides those associated with typical lotions. JERGENS® Natural Glow® Face Daily Moisturizer Sunscreens are intended for external use only. Avoid eye contact. If eye contact occurs, flush thoroughly with water. Do not apply to broken skin. If rash or irritation develops and lasts, stop use and consult a doctor. Keep out of reach of children. If swallowed, get medical help or contact a Poison Control Center immediately.

Can I use this in a tanning bed?

We do not recommend using tanning beds in general. We did not test these products during tanning bed use so we recommend that you do not use them while using the bed.

I notice an odor on my skin from this product. What causes this?

As the product works to darken the skin, some people may develop an unfamiliar smell on their skin. This is part of the skin darkening process. The patent-pending technology in JERGENS® Natural Glow® Face Daily Moisturizer Sunscreens blocks the smell for the majority of consumers we tested with—however the smell is different from person to person and, for a small group of consumers, they may still perceive a faint scent.

I am an African American with caramel tones. Will this even out my skin tone?
