Jergens: 100 Years of Glowing Skin and How To Achieve It

Thursday, July 5, 2018 Philippines


Last July 5, 2018, Jergens Philippines celebrates the joy of being the secret to glowing skin of Filipinas for more than 100 years now. The Andrew Jergens Company started as a soap manufacturer way back in 1882 and they eventually expanded to lotions, perfumes, and other health care products. First of the few ambassadors were Bing Crosby, Lucille Ball, Bob Hope, and Louella Parsons. 

Oldest bottle present in the Philippines

Jergens arrived in the Philippines in 1967 through Vibelle Manufacturing Corporation. The oldest bottle preserved in the Philippines was displayed during the celebration, plus the old advertisement clips from magazines, as well as the evolution of the bottles through photos. It is amazing on how the brand evolved and still is the best lotion there is for more than a hundred years now. Anyway, what bottle is familiar to you? Me, I remember the 1990's bottle being present on my mother's vanity table. The pink one!

During the celebration, the newest brand ambassador of Jergens, Ms. Kim De Guzman of Miss Earth Philippines (Air) 2017, shared a few tips on how she maintained her glowing skin. 

I am so happy I was able to have a short chat with Ms. Kim De Guzman because I was able to ask her about her favorite Jergens variant. To my delight, we do have the same favorite - the Hydrating Coconut

Learned some tips on how I can recycle my old clothes thanks to Ms. Trish Denise Ramos. She is another Jergens Influencer who shared her talent in fashion. I never thought that old clothes could look so great when you tore it up or cut it in a new angle and even combine it with your other old clothes! 

The first thing I noticed about Ms. Kayleen Ortiz when she entered the stage is her good posture and physique. As Jergens Influencer, she shared her secrets on how to maintain a healthy body including her glowing skin. 

Just like the secrets of these amazing women...Jergens shared their 5 affordable, easy ways to achieve a glowing skin!

1. Exfoliate

I definitely agree to this, my skin is so much better after exfoliating and make sure to do this at least once a week. This helps clear your skin of dead skin cells, blackheads - Yes, you can get blackheads on your body too! - And all the stubborn dirt on your skin. The biggest mistake people assume is that you need fancy scrubs to exfoliate. While it is easy to buy scrubs, you can actually make your DIY scrub with the ingredients in your kitchen. If that doesn't suit your taste, you can always buy a loofah or a cotton towel instead. 

2. Use Moisturizing Soap

Moisturizing starts in the shower. Most soaps do a good job of cleaning and washing away dirt, but there are some soaps that also strip the natural oils in your skin. This can leave your skin feeling drier and duller than ever. So look for soaps that moisturize and keep you clean at the same time, like the Jergens Mild and Anti-bacterial Bar Soaps

3. Moisturize, moisturize, moisturize (Should I add more?)

A lot of people forget how important moisturizing is for their skin. It doesn't just help keep your skin hydrated, if used after a bath it helps seal the moisture in. The Jergens Body Moisturizers can help keep skin soft, supple, youthful looking, and healthy. It's a good thing there are a number of Jergens variants to choose from depending on your skin type and skin needs. 

4. Eat healthy

What you put inside your body will reflect in your skin. Your body absorbs all the nutrients it can in order to function. If you only eat junk food, then your skin won't benefit at all. To achieve glowing and radiant skin, make sure to eat healthy. This isn't restricted to eating more fruit and veggies alone, but you should aim to have a balanced diet. Not only will your body thank you, your skin will too. 

5. Stay positive

You will be amazed at how much your mental disposition can affect your mood and even the way you look. It may be hard but I do believe in this too. I used to be a negative thinker and I noticed that it is harder to get by day by day. Thinking positive thoughts will not only make you feel good about yourself, you will radiate positive energy around you. This makes you look glowing, happy, and healthy! 

There you go! I hope that these 5 tips from the beautiful girls and Jergens will be helpful for you in achieving a healthier skin. Let us all be happy and glow!
