A few years ago, I might have looked at the addition of the sunscreen as kind of an 'oh, that's nice' kind of addition but not any more. Having my Dad develop cancer really showed me that it can and does happen to anyone. Ask anyone who has themselves or had a family member get that lovely diagnosis - it changes everything.
Then a year or so ago, I had an aunt develop a skin melanoma and while she is fine, it was a bit scary. Top all of that off with my Mom sharing with me the sage advice from her Dermatologist regarding the need toalwaysprotect our skin, including our hands while driving in the car (have you ever thought about how much sun they receive?) and even to the point of never going outside without at least an SPF 15 in our make up.
The Skin MD website says...
We would like to introduce the unique product that combines the most beneficial features of shielding and sunscreen lotions - Skin MD Natural + SPF15.This product helps prevent loss of natural oils and moisture, doesn't allow irritating substances to penetrate the skin and absorbs the part of UV spectrum that contributes to premature skin aging and development of skin cancer.
Now, as you may or may not recall from my previous post, this wonderful lotion is Dermatology tested, fragrance and colorant free, Hypoallergenic, Paraben free, and non-comedogenic. In other words, really good for your skin. But it does more than that - it really works!
On my right hand I have a couple of fingers that for some unknown reason seem to get a bit of eczema. For some people, eczema can be very debilitating and painful. I am very lucky in that mine is relegated to a small area and comes and goes. When it flares up, what begins as small, fluid-filled blisters quickly turns into a red, swollen, dry, itchy and often sore area. When my bottle of Skin MD arrived recently, I just happened to be having a flare up so I decided to give it a go and see how it handled my eczema. Since steroids are usually the only treatment, I was not expecting much in the way of results. Well, I am happy to say that theSkin MD Natural Shielding Lotionhas made a huge difference in the texture and the dryness of my eczema, making it much less painful and giving it a chance to heal. It also did not even sting or burn when I applied it to my tender and already irritated skin. To say that I am pleased would be an understatement.
So what is the bottom line?Skin MD Naturalwith SPF15 sunscreen is a very good way to provide protection to your skin, prevent dryness and irritation, and to protect against the sun as well. It does more than just moisturize, it shields your skin against chemicals and products that dry it out, without a greasy feeling.
A 4-oz bottle lasts one to two months with daily use because a little really goes a long way. It costs $18 and the Skin MD Natural with SPF 15 costs $25.Skin MD Naturalcan be found atretailersaround the country, perhaps even a pharmacy near you. While you might need to ask for it in the pharmacy, you do not need a prescription. You can also order directly online from the Skin MDwebsiteorAmazon.
So now that you are dying to try it for yourself, guess what? I have a bottle to give to one lucky reader!!
