Stay Safe With Jergens Natural Glow


There's no denying the evidence that tanning causes serious skin damage, including melanoma. Yet in spite of experts' warnings to stay out of the sun, wear SPF and skip tanning beds at all costs, countless Americans continue to go out in the sun without sunscreen. Most worryingly, even those who have been previously diagnosed with melanoma are disregarding warnings to be sun safe. According to research recently presented by Yale University researchers at the annual meeting of the American Association for Cancer Research, more than a quarter of people who have had melanoma say they never use sunscreen. What's more, 2% admit they have used a tanning bed in the last year. These numbers aren't much better than the general population: just 17% of adults report always wearing sunscreen. 

Natural Glow Foaming Daily MoisturizerClearly, many Americans aren't willing to give up tanning at any cost--even if the bad habit causes a life-threatening cancer. That's why it's imperative to educate the public about safe alternatives like Jergens Natural Glow, which is now reformulated with breakthrough odor-reducing technology, delivering the same signature color and benefits that have set it apart from the beginning. The formula delivers natural-looking, healthy color without exposure to harmful UV rays. People who are risking their lives in pursuit of a tan need to know that there are safer ways to get the same glow--in fact, it's a matter of life or death.

Spring Garment Care Tips

The time has come to awaken those light khaki pants, linen blazers and pretty bright dresses from their winter slumber and enter the warm March weather. Maintaining delicate fabrics by avoiding stains and wrinkles is one of the key tips to spring garment care. Deodorant stains on the armpit of a dress or pulling pants out of the dryer without ironing them can completely ruin a fresh spring look.


To protect garments and to look your best this spring, Rowenta- the leading manufacturer of high-quality steam irons, steam stations and garment steamers is offering garment care tips. Rowenta can help with tricks for keeping pleats neat on skirts and dresses as well as avoiding wrinkles in khakis that were just ironed.


Stain Removal
  • Deodorants: Scrub with alcohol or white vinegar and rinse. Rub with liquid detergent and launder in hot water.
  • Grass: Soak in enzyme presoak and then rinse. Rub with detergent and launder in hot water, if safe. If stain persists, sponge with rubbing alcohol
  • Fingernail polish: Sponge with cotton with nail polish remover. All other fabrics, sponge with amylase acetate (banana oil) and scrape with dull knife. Launder.

Ironing Challenges & Solutions
  • Many people make the mistake of wearing a garment immediately after ironing it. This can cause new wrinkles to form. To protect against those wrinkles, let the garment hang for about five minutes after it has been ironed. As a result, a sharp, pressed look lasts longer.
  • Many people like the extra crispiness that starch can provide, particularly with shirts. The correct way to obtain that look is to spray the starch on the shirt, roll the shirt into a ball, and wait about 30 seconds before pressing. This allows the fabric to absorb the starch.
  • To reduce shine caused by over pressing, or wear, soak a press clothing in water, then wring it out. Place the damp press cloth on top of the shiny surface and press. Repeat several times until the area is almost dry. Using a soft brush, raise the nap of the fabric.
  • For razor sharp creases, iron in the crease then set it with a burst of steam.
  • Gathers and ruffles should be ironed on the inside from the outer edge toward the center or middle gathers. If material is too difficult to maneuver on an ironing board, hang garment and use a vertical burst of steam.
  •  Pleats should be ironed from the bottom, starting with the inside of the pleat, and then moving to the outside of the pleats. If necessary, pin pleats to the ironing board at top and bottom; avoid ironing over the pins. To set pleats, use a burst of steam.
