Dry winter skin plagues most of us from time to time. When the weather gets colder, our skin may become scaly, chapped, rough, or even chalky looking. A good lotion or skin cream should be able to repair dry and dehydrated skin, but usually the toughest part is finding a suitable lotion or cream to do the job. Thankfully, Skin MD Natural Face, Hand & Body Shielding Lotion manages to hydrate winter skin with a combination of healing ingredients such as Aloe Vera, Vitamin E, and Chamomile.
I tend to get pretty noticeable dry winter skin in the coldest months of each year. I hate the rough feeling of the skin on my hands and I especially dislike the general winter skin feeling. I was delighted to receive a sample of Skin MD Natural to try this winter. My hands are the worst offenders in the realm of dry winter skin. Lucky for me Skin MD Natural Face, Hand & Body Shielding Lotion deeply hydrates skin and works to soothe and heal dry winter skin.
One of the first things I noticed about Skin MD Natural besides its convenient bottle shape and size and the subtle and pleasant fragrance of the lotion happened to be how quickly it absorbed into my skin. When dispensing and first applying, the lotion felt very much water-based (it does contain purified water as the first ingredient!), so I was not sure how long the effects would last. To my surprise and delight, I noticed I was applying the lotion less frequently than the fragrant Bath & Body Works counterparts.
While I probably applied Skin MD Natural about three or four times the very first day, I’ve noticed less of a need to apply frequently after a few weeks of use. In fact, I may have even gone a day without needing to apply the skin cream at all. Sometimes I apply it more simply because I like it and I appreciate how effective it is, but not necessarily because my hands still need it.
I would say of all the skin creams I’ve tried, Skin MD Natural Face, Hand & Body Shielding Lotion and the Neutrogena Norwegian Formula Hand Cream have been the most effective. Both quickly get to the root of the problem with dry winter skin. What I like better about Skin MD Natural, though, is that it does not leave your hands feeling greasy like the Norwegian Formula does. Way to go, Skin MD Natural!
“Most lotions just add moisture to the top of the skin using either lanolin or petroleum,” explains Carlo Verde, a representative for Skin MD Natural and the company 21st Century Formulations in Beverly Hills. “These are fine in the short run but they easily become ineffective after they have dried. Over time, the body can become dependent on artificial moisturizers, leaving the skin less able to handle stress and cracking. I remember many years ago when I first tried Chapstick. It was great. But since then I’ve always carried a lip balm with me. My lips had become so accustomed to the artificial moisture that they stopped producing their own natural oils.
“Our solution is simple,” Verde says. “Protect the outer layer of the skin so that moisture is retained and irritants are blocked out. This way the skin is able to keep its natural oils. Our lotion forms a breathable barrier over the stratum corneum, giving it the protection it needs to shield against pollutants and irritants in the environment.”
As far as I am concerned, Skin MD Natural Face, Hand & Body Shielding Lotion is a must-have for combating winter skin and hydrating your hands, face, and body. The product absorbs quickly, it leaves skin soft and smooth for a long time, and it produces results quickly and effortlessly. The lotion is also used and prescribed by dermatologists.
Perhaps most importantly of all, Skin MD Natural Face, Hand & Body Shielding Lotion does not test on animals or contain any animal products. It is free from fragrances, colorants, and parabens, and the product is also hypoallergenic and dermatologist-tested.
Skin MD Natural retails for $18 online or $25 for the version of the product containing SPF 15. For more information, see www.skinMDnatural.com.
