What started out as a couple mosquito bites turned my arms into an itchy haven for open sores that just wouldn’t heal. Yuck, I know. I wasn’t sure what was going on. My arm just itched and itched from the bites and when I scratched, it broke the skin. My skin has never reacted like this. Maybe it because I haven’t been moisturizing my skin faithfully as I do in cooler months. I was introduced to Skin MD Natural Shielding Lotion, just at the perfect time. Skin MD Natural Shielding Lotion is Eco Friendly, Cruelty Free, and Vegan Skin Care.
What is Shielding Lotion?
The outer layer of our skin is designed to protect deeper layers from irritants and toxins we face every day such as soaps, colorants, antibacterial agents, etc. Once this layer is damaged, the results can be dry skin, eczema, psoriasis, skin allergies, and more. The shielding lotion restores your skin’s barrier to help prevent those toxins and irritants from damaging your skin.
How does the Shileding Lotion compare to traditional lotion? Traditional lotions add moisture to the surface to give you temporary relief from dryness or itching. The Shielding lotion bonds with the skin to protect for a long period of time, up to 12 hours. By protecting the outer layer with the shielding lotion, your natural moisture will protect the deeper layers, resulting in natural healing of your skin.
Skin MD Natural Shielding Lotion Review
Since it was pretty rough looking, I didn’t take pictures of my arms. If you are interested in checking out before and after pictures of people who have benefited from the shielding lotion, click here.
Before trying the shielding lotion, I tried everything, lots of lotions, triple antibiotic ointment, and even plain ol’ Vaseline. Nothing was helping to heal the sores or give me relief from the itching. My skin must have been in pretty awful shape. I was happy to try the Skin MD Natural Shielding Lotion.
The directions say to use every 2-8 hours until moisture level improves and then less often after that. I am not in the habit of using lotion on my arms that often so I only used it twice daily. Within just 3 days, I saw noticeable improvements. I had this itchy skin problem for close to 3 weeks with no improvements before this product. Within a week, my arms are now almost completely better.
So, how does the lotion feel? This is one of the best parts, it leaves my skin feeling soft and silky smooth. The product actually leaves a barrier on your skin that is smooth to the touch, not greasy or thick like regular lotions. Plus, a big deal for me is that there is no scent to bother my allergies!
