Even when she’s singing about ‘Muffin Tops’ as 30 Rock‘s resident on-screen diva Jenna Maroney, comedian Jane Krakowski always manages to look perfectly put-together, but, she tells PEOPLE, she’s had her share of summer beauty disasters. “Well, back when I was a teenager, I wasn’t as conscious or aware of what we weren’t supposed to do, so I’ve had some what I like to call ‘eclectic tans,'” she laughs, “where the lotion didn’t make it to all the places — or you know you just spent a little too much time in the sun and get a bad strap mark and all of that sort of that stuff. For even a little while we were into the baby oil and all of that I mean, you know–really bad stuff for your skin.” The comedian’s now swapped baby oil for healthier options, and now she’s gearing up to help raise awareness–not to mention some serious cash–in the fight against skin cancer, with a little help from you. Each time you click over to the Jergens YouTube channel and watch her charming and funny video for Jergens Skincare’s In-The-Glow campaign for Natural Glow, a glow moisturizer, the brand will donate $1 to the Skin Cancer Foundation. “Hopefully, if people watch the video a lot frequently we can raise lots of money for the Skin Cancer Foundation,” she says. Comedy for a cause!–Katherine Kluznik Rentmeester
