Hey all you soccer moms, baseball moms, and other sports moms. I think you probably all know the struggle of being on the sidelines and having the sun beating down on you for hours on end. You get home and see the interesting tan lines from your shorts or shirt. Pretty soon summer is coming and those tan lines just won’t work with a swimsuit. I am going to share with you some tips I have to get ready for the sideline soccer mom game.
Really it starts at home. That first game you don’t want to be walking up with some seriously pale legs, but it isn’t always easy to get some color before that first game. So my first trick or tip is to use JERGENS® Natural Glow® 3 Days to Glow™ Moisturizer. Seriously in three days you can get color all over with the glow moisturizer. Just look at the photos below to see the progression on my legs. So easy to use just like you would be putting on regular lotion on your legs, it has a pleasant smell, and goes on so smoothly. Just make sure to wash your hands after putting it on to avoid color on your palms 🙂 This one is also good if you are going to be heading to the beach and want to blend your shorts tan line away. Just use it on areas that have had no sun and it can soon match your lower legs.Before the first use and really throughout use I suggest giving your body an all over exfoliation. It helps get the dry skin off that will sometimes take on a not ideal color. I make my own exfoliation scrub with just epsom salt, some essential oils, and grapeseed oil. Your skin will feel amazing and fresh. Just make sure to rinse out your bathtub or shower well after using the scrub as it may leave a slight oil residue.
- 2 cups epsom salt
- 10 drops of your favorite essential oil, I love anything citrus
- 1/4 cup grapeseed oil.
To keep the color going after the first round of using the 3 Days to Glow™ Moisturizer, you can then move on to the JERGENS® Natural Glow® Daily Moisturizer. It isn’t something that you have to use everyday and it isn’t going to be an instant dark color. You use it as necessary to keep up the color that you like to have on your legs and arms. It will help you with those tan lines that come from hours on the sideline, or even that dreaded color only on the front of your legs since you won’t be laying on your stomach at the game to get even coloring.. haha One little warning I have is that you will want to be careful around your ankles, toes, elbows those kind of places that tend to take in more color than your legs. Use the lotions more sparingly in those areas to avoid uneven coloring.
For those days that you are heading out to a game, JERGENS® now has Natural Glow® +PROTECT Daily Moisturizer with Sunscreen Broad Spectrum SPF 20. This will be one that I keep packed in my soccer mom bag that I have shown you before. The SPF in the +PROTECT and FACE products are for “incidental sun”, not for laying out and should not in any way be portrayed as a sunscreen. So use this in addition to regular sunscreen if you are going to be in the sun for many hours.
Some other tips to get ready for the sideline soccer mom game
- Take an umbrella with you. It will help keep you shaded and cooler. It will also help you from getting the really bad tan lines.
- Bring a small cooler with ice, ice packs, and lots of water for you and the kids. Just because you aren’t running around doesn’t mean that you don’t need to stay hydrated as well. The kids love when I have ice packs that they can put on their necks to cool down quickly during and after a game.
- Invest in a foldable wagon. Really they aren’t very expensive at the wholesale retailers. This way you have something to carry all of your gear, chairs, and coolers. They are seriously a lifesaver when your husband works weekends and can’t go with you to the games.
You can get the Jergens line of sunless tanning products at Walmart in the beauty section with other lotions. They have ones for just your face, a firming one, and a mousse sunless tanner. So head to toe you can be covered and glowing in no time. Make those other soccer moms jealous of your gorgeous legs. Step up and get ready for the sideline soccer mom game!! Be on the lookout because some store will have special coupons for $3.00 on any 2 full size Jergens® Natural Glow® Product (Offer excludes trial and travel sizes).
