Beat Dry Skin with Skin MD

The same thing happens every year - winter comes and my skin becomes incredibly dry. My normal lotions don't help much and I'm left with dry, itchy skin that I constantly scratch at and irritate. This is actually the case all year round, but it becomes worse in colder weather. A while back I reviewed a shielding lotion called Skin MD Natural. Unlike my conventional lotions, so far this one has worked for me consistently. See my original review here.

I recently received another bottle of Skin MD Natural, only this time the lotion has SPF 15 added to it. This fabulous product just got even better! Living in California means that the majority of days are sunny, even during the winter and so this is perfect - I can protect my skin from the colder weather and the sun at the same time. Shielding lotions are more effective than regular lotions because a shielding lotion keeps moisture-robbing irritants away from the skin while the proprietary "super" humectants hydrate the skin throughout the day. Here are a few other features of the lotion:

No animal products or testing
Dermatology tested
Fragrance and colorant free
Hypoallergenic
Paraben free
Non-comedogenic

It's non-greasy and makes my skin feel silky smooth. But don't take my word for it...you can read fabulous user testimonials here. Doctors also recommend it, as it can help to control conditions such as excema. Read their reviews here. You can order Skin MD from their website and also order samples!

WANT TO WIN? One winner will receive a bottle of Skin MD Natural. To enter, leave a comment on this post prior to Monday, January 5th at Midnight. Please leave your email address. Winner must provide a U.S. mailing address.

Thank you to Family Review Network for this review opportunity.

    Reynaud's Syndrome and anytime the temperature gets below 55*, her hands turn red and become very dry and irritated. It has to do with circulation which causes the red irritation. Please enter my name in your drawing. Many thanks, Cindi

As a family, we spend a lot of time outdoors, in the summer we enjoy waterskiing on the lake where our skin is exposed to sun, wind and water and in the cold winter months we are skiers so our skin takes abuse year round. I am always looking for the most effective products to keep our skin hydrated and healthy, and protected at the same time. The Skin MD Lotion sounds just perfect for my 3 young children, husband and I to use! Thank you so much for the opportunity to enter.
