A Solution for Dry Skin?

Dry, itchy, sensitive skin? I think it runs in my family or something...unfortunately.

I got the Skin MD Natural lotion awhile ago...but a product junkie like me sometimes has too many different creams lying around the house that I totally forgot about it!

Thankfully, as I was clearing up my desk, I found this....and boy, am I ever glad I did! I hate the greasiness of body butters even though they're excellent the fast absorbing, lightweight properties of a lotion but it doesn't seem to be moisturizing enough. Can you say picky? Many lotions that are scented and smell wonderful at first...but by the end of the day you can get this 'icky' smell.

Skin MD Natural shielding lotion is different. It's texture is light and serum/emulsion like which means super fast absorption...and it works!. I looked at the list of ingredients and found all the main ingredients to be natural skin soothers like Aloe Vera, Vitamin E and Arnica. I love how it's unscented. It can also be used on the face, hands and body. Gotta love a multi-tasker!

I have to admit...the first time I used it, it didn't seem that special aside from being perfect for sensitive skin. My skin is not that sensitive (just dry on the legs and elbows) so I gave it to my mom. Sometimes, it's not about the packaging, advertising or lots of fancy frills. This is genuinely a good product, and the more you use it, the better the effects (over time).

So if you've tried every lotion out there and are still seeking the perfect, lightweight supermoisturizer...perhaps give this one a shot.

I’m an artist and find that the oils and solvents I use are always drying my hands out and leaving them dry, cracked and sore. Skin MD Natural sounds great, especially as it’s non greasy and lasts so long. It seems to be getting some good press too and is worth checking out - Skin MD Natural in the UK. It uses a new advanced scientific proprietary formulation which, apparently, has a moisturizing factor 6 times greater than glycerin, the standard humectant (water absorber) against which all others are measured. It is a shielding lotion which bonds to the skin to keep the irritants out, moisture in and protects the skin in a way a normal moisturizer can’t. Well worth a look.
