Quality Skin Care Product

I tried a Eucerin body lotion a few years ago -- I wasn't too impressed. I don't remember it doing anything good or out-of-the-ordinary. Perhaps I was expecting more with the hype at the time, about how the line Catered Towards People With Sensitive Skin. I remember forking out about $16 for it when I was in Singapore.

Anyway my skin is still as sensitive as it has been since long long long ago. People with this skin type will be able to empathize with the multitude of annoyances and issues sensitive skin can bring about! I recently received a sample of Skin MD Natural and decided to see what it would turn out to be like.

Turns out that it was a much better experience than I had with Eucerin. I had a look at the ingredients list of the Skin MD product I had [Shielding Lotion for Face, Hand & Body] -- good stuff like Aloe Leaf Extract (Aloe Vera), Vitamin E, Chamomile, Extracts of Arnica, as well as purified water. Pure deionized water is theoretically up to 1000 times more soluble than common tap water.

Arnica is one of those herbs that has traditionally been used externally to heal wounds. It has a pain relieving effect, reduces inflammation and clears fungal infections. Aloe Vera also has a long history of being a safe and effective skin care aid. The aloe plant contains over 75 ingredients (!), such as vitamins, minerals, and amino acids (the building blocks of proteins).

The sample I received had a note: "a little goes a long way...", so I only used a little bit of the product. Yes, it was enough to notice an effect. My skin felt very hydrated in less than a minute, and didn't have a weird caustic effect like when I once sampled an SkII product. SkII being a luxury skincare product...they were having some promotional giveaways at a mall. Any-way.

Later, I applied some Skin MD after being out in the sun for a while. There was a comforting, refreshing feeling, and the skin didn't dry out. It was refreshing in the "I've just taken a really nice bath" sense -- but better, because the feeling doesn't go away quite so fast as the former alone.

On the website, it is explained that Shielding Lotions are a new type of skin care product. They form a protective shield and help keep out irritants, while keeping natural oils and moisture in the skin. They're also light in texture, so they go on without a greasy mess. I could feel this at work after applying the product, so all that info isn't just a load of marketing BS.

And since I went for a wisdom teeth op two weeks ago, using Skin MD was an exceedingly welcome treat during my recovery! I'll be applying the product on some eczema spots soon, as I've confidence in this brand and the ingredients that are in it.

You have probably heard about the many benefits of Shea Butter. It is used for many different things such as dry skin, irritation, muscle aches, chapped lips, dry hair, and many more.

Shea Butter is made from the kernel of the Karite tree. Before it is made, the Karite tree produces a fruit. It is a green-orange fruit which is about the size of an apricot. It is deliciously sweet, and high in vitamin C and other nutrients. When the fruit is eaten, there is a kernel left over. This is what is used to make the Shea Butter that we love for our skin!

Shea Butter is more than just great for your skin. Knowing that it is safe enough to eat is important. You no longer have to worry about which kind of cream and moisturizer you can use for your baby's sensitive skin, your chapped lips, or even your face. It is something that can be used for a ton of different things. Thanks, Mother Nature!
