I have extremely dry skin, due to an autoimmune disease called Sjogren’s Syndrome. As I’m also a big reader, so I touch a lot of paper, and by the end of each day, my hands can look a little scary. I’m not thrilled to show you this picture, but I must.
Having dry skin isn’t pretty, and I’m forced to normally apply 3-4 different types of lotions on my hands, feet and body every day, multiple times a day. I’ve tried dozens of lotions and creams in my lifetime, and I’ve struggled to find the perfect bottle of lotion that soothes my sensitive skin. At this moment, I have 13 full-sized bottles of creams and lotions in my bathroom, and 4 smaller bottles next to my bed and couch. When it comes to lotion, I am very demanding, and I’m always on the lookout for that one lotion that doesn’t smell bad, absorbs and heals the way it should, and is pleasing to my touch, as I also have a Sensory Integration Disorder due to also having Fibromyalgia.
Recently, Skin MD sent me a bottle of their Skin MD ™ Natural lotion to try. Skin MD Natural was designed with over 7 years of research and 741 test batches, resulting in a shielding lotion that is 6 times more moisturizing than the industry standard. Skin MD ™ Natural is a face, hand and body shielding lotion that is used and prescribed by dermatologists. Skin MD ™ Natural is non-greasy, has no fragrances, no parabens, no petrochemicals & no dyes, and it’s also vegan, cruelty free & eco-friendly, as it is made in a facility that is 100% solar-powered.
I didn’t have any expectations when first trying out Skin MD™, and the first thing I noticed while applying it is that this lotion is thin, not thick and greasy, and glides on like water, which is something I am not used to at all. I should also tell you that I put on way too much my first time, so keep in mind that one small squirt goes a long way. Skin MD™ is one of the only lotions that I have ever used where the lotion complete absorbed into my skin almost immediately, and didn’t leave behind any residue.
I started using Skin MD™ last week. The directions state to use it every 2 – 8 hours, until moisture level improves, then just once every 12 – 24 hours. I applied it every few hours the first five days, then twice a day over the weekend. By last night, my hands, legs and feet looked much better and were softer than before I started using the lotion. Just take a look at my before and after results in the photo below. I’m really pleased with Skin MD™, and will continue to use their lotion in the future. If you suffer from dry skin, or super dry skin like me, I am telling you must try out this lotion, because you deserve to have smooth, healthy skin!
Since I also have Rosacea and a connective tissue disorder that involves a loss of collagen, I didn’t try Skin MD™ on my face, even though it is made to treat Rosacea. (Shame on me.) In my defense, I have to wear a special medicated cream on my face, as well use other collagen-infused products. However, I am interested to know if this product works just as good on a typical face or a Rosacea-affected face, so if you’ve used it on your face, please let me know. Skin MD™ Natural has also been found to be very effective on a variety of dermatological conditions, including eczema, psoriasis, skin allergies, skin problems caused by hormone imbalances & other dry skin conditions. Check with your physician if you have any questions about whether Skin MD™ Natural is the right skin care product for your skin condition.
Skin MD ™ also comes in a SPF 15 formula. Why not order your own bottle of Skin MD™ online now, or in a store near you.
