Get "In the Glow" With Jergens® Skincare and The Skin Cancer Foundation

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwire - March 26, 2010) -

THINK: Get your glow the smart way this summer.

WHAT IT IS: A friendly reminder about the safe way to get a natural-looking glow. Want sun-kissed color without the consequences? The experts at Jergens® Skincare know you don't want to give up the glow. That's why the Jergens® Skincare Experts have teamed up with The Skin Cancer Foundation and Jane Krakowski to remind women to get their glow the healthy way this season.

To remind sun worshippers to trade in their tanning routines for a healthy glow, the Jergens® Skincare Team and The Skin Cancer Foundation enlisted award-winning actress and singer Jane Krakowski to spread the word. In a new video, Jane is divulging how she gets beautiful, natural-looking color with Jergens® natural glow moisturizers and is encouraging everyone who views her message to pass it on to someone who needs to get "in the glow" about the smart, safe way to get gorgeous color.

Each time the video is viewed from now until August 31, 2010, Jergens® Skincare Team will make a $1 donation* to The Skin Cancer Foundation. When you remind your friends and family to glow the safe way this summer, you'll be helping save others' skin, too.

"Even though we all know the facts, it's hard to resist the lure of a tan," says Jane Krakowski. "With this video, I'm hoping to pass on that reminder to women and steer them toward a safe option like Jergens® natural glow moisturizers."

"Given what we know about the effects of sun exposure, tanning is just not worth the risk," says Dr. Sapna Westley, Consulting Dermatologist for Kao Brands Company. "I recommend Jergens® natural glow Daily Moisturizers as a safe, healthy alternative -- the formulas offer the natural-looking color women want without the harmful side effects."

To get a glow the healthy way this summer, try Jergens® natural glow REVITALIZING Daily Moisturizer. The newly upgraded formula delivers healthy, gradual color that lasts two times longer** with a powerful blend of antioxidants and Vitamin E. For a luminous, glowing complexion, try Jergens® natural glow HEALTHY COMPLEXION Daily Facial Moisturizer, specifically formulated for the face. Developed with broad-spectrum UVA/UVB SPF 20 protection, the dermatologist-tested, oil-free, non-comedogenic moisturizer helps prevent premature aging and protects against future damage as it delivers natural-looking color after several applications.

WHAT THEY COST: $8.99 each.

WHERE TO FIND THEM: Food, drug and mass retailer stores nationwide

*Jergens® Skincare will donate $1 per view, with a maximum donation of $20,000. Campaign runs from March 19, 2010 - August 31, 2010.
