What sets a shielding lotion apart from a traditional lotion? The traditional approach is to make up for the moisture that our skin is losing with an external source of moisture. I have noticed that my skin felt tense and dehydrated whenever I skipped applying the conventional lotion. In contrast, the goal of a shielding lotion is to enhance our skin's "natural protective abilities" by forming a protective hydrating shield with the outer layer of skin. It not only helps keep out moisture-robbing irritants and dangerous toxins, but also helps retain natural oils and moisture in our skin. While conventional lotion only provides temporary relief from dry skin problems, shielding lotion offers a long-term solution!
Besides being a revolutionary skin care product, the Skin MD Natural lotion is non-greasy, fast-absorbing, and light in texture. With added sun protection benefit, the new lotion makes a great daytime moisturizer. The 4 oz. bottle is easy to fit in a purse and be carried around. Frankly speaking, the new lotion is not as inexpensive as I would like. But considering all that it has to offer beyond conventional lotions, the little extra investment is well justified.
Many thanks to Extraordinary Mothers and Skin MD Natural for this pampering review opportunity!
