Julie Bowen’s Emmy Dazzling Skin!‏

Last night, Emmy-winner Julie Bowen (Modern Family) dazzled under the bright lights of the Red Carpet. When asked, “Who are you wearing?” the answer was simple: Jergens® Skincare.
Before putting on the dress, the makeup, or the jewelry, Bowen got her skin camera-ready with Jergens® Ultra Healing Extra Dry Skin Moisturizer, creating the perfect foundation for her radiant red carpet look, and proceeded to take the carpet by storm!

Jergens® Ultra Healing® Extra Dry Skin Moisturizer heals dryness at the source for healthier-looking skin, providing moisturizing care that makes a beautiful difference. The fast-absorbing body lotion penetrates through 5 layers of the skin’s surface to lock in moisture, instantly doubling hydration and tripling skin’s moisture content with continued use. By infusing skin with a powerful blend of vitamins C, E and B5, Ultra Healing® Extra Dry Skin Moisturizer deeply nourishes and replenishes. Offering 24-hour relief, the conditioning moisturizer not only heals even the driest skin, but also softens and smoothes, making the difference between dry skin and divine skin.
