Skin MD Review and Giveaway


Just so you know I am a lotion freak. I think it's because I am a little OCD and wash my hands ALL the time! So then my skin is dry ALL the time! So when I wash my hands many moisturizers just wash off leaving me with a never ending cycle of dry hands. While I love lots of different brands of lotions, I am very picky about what I use. I have a hard time using the kinds with harsh fragrances because they just give me a headache and leave me feeling like I am using too many chemicals on my body.

When I got to try Skin MD Natural Shielding Lotion, I was amazed. Not only was it effective in retaining my moisture levels, I also felt good about using a product with natural ingredients.

Here is what the Skin MD site says about the quality of the lotion:

"Daily use of most soaps and cleansers can greatly reduce your skin's natural ability to repel the thousands of irritants and toxins that are commonly found in the home and work place. Once these irritants penetrate your outer layer of skin they can cause dry skin conditions, eczema, psoriasis, skin allergies and many other less desirable skin and health problems.
Dry skin and itchy skin are nature's way of warning you that the protective elements of your outer layer of skin have been stripped away.

"By using a shielding lotion that bonds with the outer layer of your skin you can keep irritants out and moisture in. Because most moisturizers do not seal in the body's own moisture, they artificially lubricate the outer layers of skin. When they wear off, the lubrication is gone and the original dryness remains. Sometimes this process will draw out the body's natural moisture and contribute to the dehydration process," writes Dr. Peter Helton, a board-certified dermatologist specializing in cosmetic dermatology."

Using humectants, it naturally retains and promotes moisture to your skin while drawing moisture from the air. What else makes this lotion so fab? Skin MD doesn't test on animals, is paraben free, Fragrance and colorant free, Dermatology tested, Non-comedogenic, and Hypoallergenic. Not only is this a great product for anyone, but especially with those that have sensitive or problematic skin. I just love it! To see more about how it works you can watch this video.
