The cold, dry weather has been in full force. We’ve had a pretty good cold snap for the past few days and when I have to run the heater like that, it generally means sucking all of the moisture out of the air around here and out of my skin. Add to that constant hand washing due to colds and germs that love to flourish and my skin is all rough and sand-papery. Not attractive. And really not comfortable. Dry, dead skin just hurts after a while.
Fortunately, I received a sample of Skin MD Natural Shielding Lotion a few weeks ago and it has been helping combat that dry, scaly skin!
The primary thing that I like about this lotion is that it bills itself as safe for all areas of the body, and that is absolutely true. I’ve used it on my arms, legs, hands and face and have not noticed it being greasy or leaving any kind of unwelcome residue behind. I’ve never found a moisturizer that could actually work on my upper arms (where the really scaly, gross skin likes to live) and my face. So that alone is a reason to try this out. As a fairly simple person when it comes to cosmetics, the fewer steps in my routine, the better!
I also really appreciate that this skin care product is made in the United States using 100% solar power. The product contains no animal products and was not tested on animals and is completely vegan. It always makes me happy to be able to review items that can be used by ALL of my readers, especially when they are a high-quality product like this!
This product works a bit differently from traditional moisturizers. A shielding lotion does the real work to prevent dry skin in two ways.
First, it assists the inner layers of skin to absorb moisture. The humectant (an ingredient that attracts moisture) used in Skin MD Natural is unique to it and has been laboratory tested to be 6 times more effective than any other you will find in common creams.
Second, a shielding lotion enhances the power of the top layer of the skin to resist environmental irritants while protecting the inner natural moisture.
This can be a big benefit for those who cook, wash dishes and garden because Skin MD Natural helps skin retain its natural moisture and oils in the face of all those irritating soaps and chemicals.
I have been very happy with the results that I’ve had and I would happily recommend this product to others.
