About Skin MD Natural Shielding Lotion:
Shielding Lotion The New Revolutionary Concept in Skin Care
Skin MD Natural Shielding Lotion was formulated after years of research into how the skin functions. It was found that the primary function of the outer layer of skin is to prevent irritants from penetrating into the body. Skin MD Natural Shielding Lotion is a new type of skin care product that becomes part of the outer layer of skin to restore this natural function. It helps damaged skin by preventing moisture-robbing irritants from entering its deeper layers and helps reduce moisture loss.
Replace Your Regular Moisturizer With a Shielding Lotion
There are thousands of skin irritants in our modern environment that didn't exist even 50 years ago. These irritants can strip the protective barrier off your skin causing dry skin, eczema and other skin problems. These changes in our environment have brought about the need for a new type of dry skin care solution - a shielding lotion.
Shampoos, antibacterial soaps, cosmetics, fragrances, colorants and other irritants bombard and penetrate the skin. These harsh chemicals and irritants can break down the skin's natural protective ability. Some strip away moisture, while others lodge in the pores where they cause irritation and other negative reactions.
"Your skin wasn't designed to deal with soap and the thousands of other everyday chemicals," explains Dr. Peter Helton, a board-certified dermatologist specializing in cosmetic dermatology. "Nearly everyone's skin is exposed to harmful chemicals on and off the job. That is why shielding lotions are so important."
Unfortunately, conventional lotions have one basic goal - to simply make up for the moisture that our bodies are losing by adding an artificial source of moisture. Many common household products including soaps, are absorbed directly into the skin, causing dry cracked skin and other skin disorders. Also, when participating in other activities from gardening to painting, furniture restoration to fishing, or exposure to harsh weather, you are further drying and irritating your skin. Skin MD Natural Shielding Lotion helps to break the dry skin cycle by restoring skin's natural moisture and protection.
"Regular moisturizers are designed to add moisture onto the skin. However, it does nothing to repair the barrier, so it's an endless cycle of constant moisture application onto the skin without healing and curing the dry skin. Many traditional moisturizers restore the moisture to the skin on a temporary basis, but after continued use actually send a message back to the skin saying it doesn't need any further moisture to be produced by the skin. This can cause the opposite condition where the skin is less hydrated than prior to using the moisturizers.
With the shielding lotion you get a thin layer, so it does not clog the pores. It allows skin to breathe and it is what we call 'non-comedogenic' – it won't promote acne. In addition, it also protects the skin while allowing it to breathe."

My body quenches thirst through water and lotion. I go through lotion like it is going out of style. It is a ritual I do every single day. Whether it be once I get out of the shower for my entire body, or throughout the day, on my hands, especially after washing them.
With this particular lotion, I figured I would try my face. As I grow older, yes, unfortunately, that is happening, I feel my skin has been absorbing any and all nutrients I give it and leaving it dry and rough feeling, until now. For about 1 1/2 weeks I have been trying Skin MD Natural Shielding Lotion on my face at night-time after I wash my face and in the morning, after I wash my face. Not only does my face feel smooth to the touch, the dryness feeling has gone away. I love this product.
I also have used this product consistently on my 4 year old daughter, who has extreme dry skin. This has helped eleviate the itching and has begun to restore moisture into her skin, I truly believe that. When you are constantly hearing your child complaining in agony over the itching, to those "ouches" being eliminated, than you know this product works.
