Michigan cold winters can be very harsh on the skin. I personally haven't found any lotions that can truly protect my skin from this cold weather. Nevertheless, I had the opportunity to try the SkinMD Natural Face, Hand & Body Shielding Lotion. I applied a small portion in the palm of my hand, and my forearms, and immediately noticed that it didn't leave my skin oily. I observed how quickly it absorbed into my skin, and I also noticed how my extremely dry skin was transformed into soft, smooth skin. I would definitely use the SkinMD Natural Face, Hand & Body Shielding Lotion for the duration of the Winter season.
Skincare News from the Skin MD website....
Everyday contact with soaps, cleansers, shampoos, household chemistry and other substances that strip away skin's own protective layer (a thin film made of natural fats, lipids), leaves the skin's deeper layers unprotected. Without this protection in place oils and the natural moisture of the skin evaporates and absorption of irritants is no longer prevented.
Conventional lotions only add artificial moisture to the skin temporarily alleviating the dryness or itching, but these moisturizers don't actually solve the problem, they only treat symptoms without eliminating the cause. Dry skin is unable to absorb the newly added moisture to allow repair – it does not get "locked" into the skin. It gets lost easily. That’s why we keep applying more and more of the conventional lotions. Even so, skin easily gets addicted and may even suspend production of it's own moisture, relying on added moisturizer.
Skin MD Natural is a shielding lotion, a very special type of lotion helping the skin restore its integrity, enhance its protective functions so that the skin is able to heal naturally and regain its youthful appearance. Skin MD Natural works by bonding with cells of the skin's outermost layer to form what works as an invisible shield. This layer of protection prevents environmental irritants and pollutants from penetrating the skin, while sealing in the skin's own natural oils and moisture, helping resolve the dry skin condition.
Skin MD Natural uses only the finest natural ingredients, and is focused on urging the skin to be active, and to use its own moisture to effectively heal itself. It is not oily or sticky, doesn't sit on top of your skin leaving a greasy residue on everything you touch, it doesn't rub or wash off easily, is hypoallergenic, fragrance, colorant and paraben free and dermatology tested. In addition, SkinMD Natural Face, Hand & Body Shielding Lotion can also be use on Eczema, Psoriasis, and other skin irritants.
