I had the great opportunity to review a bottle of SkinMD Shielding Lotion plus SPF 15. Luckily, I was approached to review this lotion at the worst time of year for my dry skin: the winter time. Prior to receiving this lotion, my hands and legs were so dry that they were itching. I have been using this product for about 3 weeks and my skin couldn't be in better condition! This is a great lotion that moisturizes and protects your skin. I loved the fact that it doesn't have a heavy perfume smell, and it is a very creamy lotion that lasts a long time. It is also very useful in helping heal Eczema breakouts as well as Psoriasis.

What Is A Shielding Lotion?
Your Skin - Facing Everyday Challenges
There are thousands of skin irritants in our modern environment that didn't exist only 50 years ago. These irritants can strip the protective barrier off your skin causing dry skin, eczema and other skin problems. These changes in our environment have brought about the need for a new type of dry skin care solution – a shielding lotion.
Shampoos, antibacterial soaps, cosmetics, fragrances, colorants and other irritants bombard and penetrate the skin. These harsh chemicals and irritants can break down the skin's natural protective ability. Some strip away moisture, while others lodge in the pores where they cause irritation and other negative reactions.
Unfortunately, traditional lotions have one basic goal - to simply make up for the moisture that our bodies are losing by adding an external source of moisture. Many common household products and even soaps are absorbed directly into your skin, causing skin disorders or just plain dry cracked skin. Also, when participating in other activities from gardening to painting, furniture restoration to fishing, or exposure to harsh weather, you are further drying and irritating your skin.

SkinMD Natural Sheilding Lotion +SPF contains Vitamin D, which aids in maintaining equilibrium in the skin.
