One thing is certain, winter is here! All though I love the family time and holiday fun (usually), I hate some of the other things that winter brings on. For me, one of those things is dry skin. I don't just mean dry but super dry, flaky gross skin. My face, arms and back are all afflicted. My arms have always suffered from eczema and the redness has been out of control lately so adding dry skin to the mix wasn't making things any better for me. Plus it gets embarrassing to wear short sleeve shirts in public. So you can imagine what I said when I was offered the chance to review a skin shielding lotion from Skin MD Natural, YES PLEASE!
What is a shielding lotion you ask? Skin MD Natural Shielding Lotion keeps out the moisture robbing irritants while the other natural ingredients of the lotion keep the skin hydrated throughout the day. Skin MD Natural is quickly absorbed in to the skin and does not leave any greasy residue behind. This transforms the outer skin into a hydrating invisible shield. What makes this shielding lotion truly unique is that the ingredients have a moisturizing factor six times greater than those that use glycerin, which has been the standard against which all humectants are measured.
Skin MD Natural Facts:
- No animal products or testing
- Dermatology tested
- Fragrance and colorant free
- Paraben free
I have personally been using the shielding lotion for a little over a month. The redness from my eczema has dramatically decreased. It would probably be a whole lot better if I were able to use it more often. I like to apply lotion after I get out of the shower. The problem is that it needs to be applied more often to get the best results when you are fighting severe dry skin or other dermatological problems. I use it every day and I am so pleased with the results. I can finally wear short sleeves again without being embarrassed.
My favorite thing about the lotion is that it is non greasy. I can put it on and it absorbs into the skin immediately. I really hate that thick lotion feeling on my hands, it just feels like it is sitting on top and not doing a darn thing. I also wash my hands about a million times a day so usually lotion is really only on my skin for about ten minutes before I touch something gross, need to prepare food, go to the bathroom or help someone else in the bathroom. Skin MD Natural actually absorbs into my hands quickly so even if I have to wash my hands shortly after applying it I don't feel like I am washing it off.
To protect yourself from sun damage Skin MD Natural also offers the same great shielding lotion plus SPF 15. I received a few small samples of this and I love to put it on my face underneath my mineral makeup. I like that it gives me the added sun protection and it is not a thick coat of lotion underneath my makeup either. You all know that I can't live without my mineral makeup and I have found that putting Skin MD Naturals on my face before applying my makeup is a great way to moisturize the skin before application.
I would really recommend using Skin MD Naturals if dry skin and eczema are a problem for you. They have really helped me and my Dad cope with ours. Skin MD Naturals is available worldwide. Most stores have a test bottle for you to sample for yourself before purchase. Visit skinmdnatural.com to find a store near you or to learn about other ways to get samples sent to your home.
