The young star, along with other celebrities like Mena Suvari, Jaime Pressly, Michelle Trachtenberg and Tara Lipinski, have pledged to stay out of the sun and “Glow in the Dark” via safer ways like using self-tanners and to use protection while out in the sun.

If you join the stars and pledge now, your name will automatically be added to the “Glow in the Dark” pledge wall and you will be entered to win a free sample of my new favorite self-tanner Jergens Natural Glow Express Body Moisturizer and a limited edition “I Glow in the Dark” t-shirt. Jergens will also donate $1 to the Skin Cancer Foundation for every pledge made. So hurry up and pledge here now!

Scratch the self-tanner reviews I did earlier becauseHawaiian Tropic Island Glow Daily Moisturizer ($6) completely blew everything else away! I bought this in Medium after reading some rave reviews online and I have been using this religiously for more than a week now.

Like Jergen Natural Glow Daily Moisturizer, this is a self-tanning moisturizer. It is packed with vitamins A, C and E with a green tea fragrance. Even though it claims to keep skin moisturized for up to 12 hours, I do not find it very moisturizing – I still needed to put a lotion on top. When I first applied it onto my legs, it dried pretty fast and I could not detect any green tea smell but there was none of that typcial self-tanner smell either. However, after a few hours, my legs started smelling a little like self-tanner but it is so much more bearable compared to the Jergen’s. As for the color, my legs started getting darker by day three – no more pale pasty legs for me yay! Moreover, the color looked very realistic, it was a golden bronze and not orange nor streaky. I am going to try mixing this into my facial moisturizer to see if it’ll work on my face too. Will post an update in a bit.

Summer is almost here and it’s finally time to get tan – yay! However, think twice before you jump under the sun or head towards the tanning salon. Skin cancer is currently the most common of all cancers in the United States and there are over a million cases diagnosed every year. So if you want a tan, the best way to do it is to use self-tanners. Here are some reviews of the self-tanners I have tried:
