Does anybody else feel like winter wreaked complete havoc on their skin? Trust me, you’re not alone! With the spring season in full swing, I’m sure we’re all ready to get our skin to look and feel healthy. We want to wear shorts and dresses with confidence, right?! So today I’m sharing my best 3 tips to get your skin spring-ready.

3 Tips to Get Your Skin Spring-Ready

Get hydrated.

During the colder months, I fall victim to not drinking as much as I should. We’re typically not as active, and the cold doesn’t exactly make me want to down 10 glasses of water a day. But, hydration is key for healthy, glowing skin. If you struggle to stay hydrated, try to keep a water bottle with you during the day so it’s easy to know when it’s time for a refill. I always keep my Camelback with me, and I try to drink three or four full bottles a day. Also, if you like flavored water then try Dasani drops – I swear by them!


If you have skin like mine, then I’m sure it has been ridiculously dry and flaky. A gentle exfoliate scrub will help buff away dead skin cells to let fresh, healthy skin shine through. Just be careful not to use anything too harsh so you don’t further damage your skin. You also only need to exfoliate once or twice a week so your skin doesn’t dry out even more.

Build a base tan without the sun!

It’s difficult to feel confident in spring clothes when you feel like you resemble Casper the Friendly Ghost. I’ve been a loyal JERGENS® fan for years (check out my sunless tanning tutorial in this post), and they’ve now made it even easier to build a base tan with JERGENS® Natural Glow® Wet Skin Moisturizer.

I’m all about multitasking products, and JERGENS® Natural Glow® Wet Skin Moisturizer has become a workhorse in my bathroom. I use this in place of a regular moisturizer and also build natural color on my skin throughout the course of several days. That’s a win-win in my book!

I apply it straight out of the shower while my skin is still wet, which helps to get an even, streak-free application. All you need is a quarter-size amount for each leg, and a little less than that for each arm. Then, I simply towel off as normal. There’s no product or color transfer since it absorbs into the skin so quick. Just be sure to wash your hands after application.

I admit that I can be a bit impatient while I wait to build up a natural tan. That’s why I typically follow up with an application of JERGENS® Natural Glow® Instant Sun® Sunless Tanning Mousse. This product delivers instant results, so it’s great for the day of a special event or if you want color fast. I always use a sunless tanning mitt to ensure even color and to protect my hands.

    I love Jergins natural glow lotion and use it almost everyday, so I need to try out these products too! And I’m gonna need ot know where your dress is from! Looks like a dress I would wear constantly in the summer!

    I really need to get better about moisturizing especially in the winter. Jergens has such great self tanners, and I love that there’s a mousse <3

    I have used the Jergens natural glow in the past, but wasn’t crazy about the smell. How does the wet skin moisturizer smell? There’s really no color transfer on your towel when you dry off?!?!?

    • 4.11.17

      It doesn’t smell bad at all, definitely not like their products used to! It reminds me of Palmer’s cocoa butter or a shea butter smell. And nope, no color transfer at all!

    I’ve heard so many great things about Jergens self tanners, but I still haven’t given them a try! I swear that I’m so pale that they’d be perfect for me, especially since I don’t like to be out in the sun too much!

    I love Jergens! I use the lotion all the time. Need to try that foam.

    I love Jergen’s products! Winter months, even though it doesn’t get nearly as cold here as it does for you, totally change up the dynamic in my skin. Everything is just so dang dry!

  10. 4.10.17

    I’ve been too lazy to self tan this year, so I’m so glad it’s finally warming up! I’ve always been intrigued by the wet lotions, since I hate using normal lotion– this one sounds like a great option!

    • 4.11.17

      It’s so good, definitely the best one that I’ve used. I like that I can just slap it on after the show and not have to worry about it.
