Skin MD skin care review and giveaway

Have you heard of  Skin MD Natural?  If not, then you do not know what you are missing.  It is a face, hand and body shielding lotion.  It exceptionally enhances your skin's hydrating and protective abilities. 

Skin MD Natural uses a blend of natural ingredients in combination with significant recent scientific advances to hydrate and help heal dry skin without any greasy residue, harsh fragrances, or other potentially toxic ingredients. Conventional lotions simply attempt to replace lost moisture with artificial moisture.

Skin MD Natural works differently by helping keep moisture-robbing irritants away thus enhancing the skin's inherent ability to moisturize itself. This easy-to-apply, fast-absorbing lotion helps protect against many household, cosmetic and other commonly used products that can lead to skin disorders or just plain dry cracked skin.

I don't know about you, but in the winter months I get dry skin.  Then on top of the constant hand washing to keep the germs at bay, out in the cold weather cleaning the snow out of the drive way.  I am not a fan of greasy lotions full of perfumey  scents.  I like that Skin MD Natural is hypoallergenic and free of parabens, gluten, and fragrances. In addition, no animal products or testing are involved. They are absorbed very quickly, and does not leave a residue on the surface of my skin.

The company recommends that the lotion is used every couple of hours at first, and once the moisture balance of the skin is restored, you can use it once every 12-24 hours.  My hands and legs feel soft  without any greasy or sticky feeling.  I am very happy with the results and will continue to use this lotion!  I have also begun to apply it on both of my children to help combat wind burn and the bitter cold to their little cheeks!

Here's what Skin MD has to say.." "A Shielding Lotion is far more effective as a dry skin care treatment than mere moisturizing lotions or protective creams. If you suffer from dry skin, you know that just using a moisturizing lotion doesn't solve the problem.

Skin MD Natural™ is promptly absorbed, without the slightest hint of any greasy or oily feeling or residue, transforming the outer layer of skin into a hydrating invisible shield.

Glycerin has been the standard against which all humectants are measured. Until now no other humectant’s drew in as much moisture from the air as glycerin. But the proprietary formulation in Skin MD Natural™ has a moisturizing factor of at least 6 times greater than glycerin.
Skin MD Natural™ utilizes the finest effective natural skin care ingredients for dry skin treatment along with the latest advances in dry skin care technology to hydrate and protect the skin.

This is an entirely new concept in skin care requiring a new classification: "Shielding Lotion". A shielding lotion keeps moisture-robbing irritants away from the skin while the proprietary "super" humectants hydrate the skin throughout the day.

An accumulated effect of Skin MD Natural is fully realized after only a few days of daily use. Depending on how dry your skin is the first few days may require reapplications after only a few hours. Usually, after a few days of continuous use, only one or two daily applications are necessary for complete dry skin care ".
