Before the holidays, I was approached to review Skin MD Natural Shielding Lotion. After visiting their website and reading about the product, I gladly accepted the opportunity. My husband has suffered with eczema on the knuckles of his hands for the last several years. They often get to the point of cracking and bleeding. The patchy, scaly skin is itchy and can make him so miserable, at times. After seeing the pictures and testimonials at the Skin MD website, I was anxious for him to try the Shielding Lotion.
I never even got a chance to take a “before” picture of his hands. When the package arrived, he was so anxious, he opened and tried it before I was aware we had received it. He started experiencing relief from the itching with the first application and within a day, his knuckles were less inflamed. After using it for several weeks, now, he is a die-hard fan. His eczema has not gone away completely, but it is barely noticeable, only one small patch on one knuckle, and he has not experienced any of the discomfort or severe dryness and cracking that was a part of his every-day life, before.
I’m neither a doctor, nor a scientist, but I do know when something works. The explanation of just how is thoroughly detailed on the Skin MD website. Their explanation of what our modern environment does to our skin is magnified in my mind when I think of the machinery and stresses my husband’s hands are exposed to in his work. He has remarked several times that Skin MD was not greasy, but that it seems to form some sort of barrier over his hands, protecting them from the damage of the elements. This makes sense with the website’s explanation of how Skin MD Shielding lotion actually bonds with the skin to increase the skins ability to form a protective layer, which we are constantly stripping away with soaps and cleansers. However it works, Skin MD Shielding Lotion is exactly what we’ve been looking for to relieve the discomforts of my husband’s eczema. We realize it can’t be “cured”, however we are content with the comfort and relief of symptoms that no other product has provided. We can highly recommend this product for others seeking that same relief. So, whether you have a more serious skin condition or just need to rescue your skin from the dry winter air, check out their website and see the benefits for you and your family.
