Skin MD Natural Lotion
Recently, I received a bottle of Skin MD Natural lotion to try.
I have to say, I'm impressed with this skin care product. My skin has been a bit of a mess since I first got sick several months ago, dry and basically blah-blah looking. Skin MD perked it right up! My hands especially show the difference - my skin was cracking on my fingers and around the cuticles, and the problem is almost gone! It is a very light, natural skin care product, and even in hot sticky weather, it didn't feel sticky like some lotions do. It felt wonderful going on my skin, and especially on my face (where the other worst damage seems to be -I've never broken out so much in my life!) It absorbed right away, and I was able to put my make up on with no problem, and no extra waiting.
I figured the ultimate test would be on my DH. He has a rather annoying eczema problem, and nothing seems to help the poor guy. Half of what I've tried in the past has only managed to make it worse - but not Skin MD. So far he's scratching a lot less and the area just doesn't look so bad - you can tell that this really is a skin shielding product that's helping keeping irritants away from his skin. I can't wait to see the long term effect of Skin MD on his skin!
According to Dr Brian Zogg, a board certified dermatologist featured on the Skin MD website,
"Shielding Lotions form a protective shield with the outer layer of skin and help keep out irritants and chemicals. They also allow the natural oils and moisture to remain in the skin so it can heal better. They are light and go on without a greasy mess." "Your skin needs help to keep out these moisture-robbing irritants. A fundamental difference between Shield?ing Lotions and traditional lotions are that Shielding Lotions enhance the skin's own natural protective abilities by turning the outer layer of skin into what could be described as a hydrating invisible shield making them many times more effective than mere protective lotions and moisturizing creams."
How good is this skin shielding product? Watch this video of how it protects skin from a rock dissolving acid!
(Doesn't that video make it sound like a great gift for a loved one who works with a lot of chemicals and pesticides outdoors?)
The ultimate clincher for me - this product is not tested on animals and it has no animal products! It is also Dermatology tested, fragrance and colorant free, hypoallergenic, paraben free, and non-comedogenic!

A little of this bottle goes a long way! One bottle should last you at least one month, if not longer. I've been using it for a little over a week now on both of us, and the bottle feels just as heavy as the day it arrived.
