I'd like to report that my knuckles are looking better. I know that sounds funny but, having cracked knuckles isn't comfortable or pretty so, I'm happy. Skin MD Natural also sent me some of their shielding lotion with SPF 15. I haven't been able to try it out yet because we've had very few sunny days. However, I know I'll be using it as soon as we start seeing the sun again. We spend lots of time outside and I do have pretty fair skin but, I also like getting a tan so, SPF 15 will be perfect.
What is Skin MD Natural?
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.
The manufacturer's website http://www.skinmdnatural.com/ has hundreds of dermatologist and user reviews including many addressing severe dry skin problems such as eczema and psoriasis. People with sensitive skin -- and those of us who like to live as naturally as possible -- will appreciate that Skin MD Natural is hypoallergenic, free of fragrances, parabens and colorants. It is made with more than 90% natural ingredients and 100% food-grade ingredients that are on the FDA's "most safe" list.
I've put a link on the left hand side of my blog so, you can get a free sample of Skin MD Natural and try it yourself. Maybe you are like me and have dry skin or maybe it's your baby that has dry skin. Give it a try and see what you think.
