There Are No Miracles, however ....
It's not just because I'm being forced to listen to the second football game of the day blaring in the background ... that my heart and mind turn to cosmeceuticals.
No, I have a deep and abiding belief in better skin care through chemistry. I have used MD Forte products for a long time, and about a year ago added some products by Cellular Skin Rx to my skin care lineup ... both product lines with serious science underpinning their products' efficacy.
And now I have a new recommendation for you: SkinMDNatural's Shielding Lotion.
Seattle has had one of its roughest winters that I can remember -- cold, cold, cold -- and the air has been drier than usual. Conditions that are hard on skin.
Jim has rosacea, I'm prone to eczema and we both have sensitive skin. But we've been using the Shielding Lotion for nearly two weeks and it is providing significant comfort to face, hands, backs and feet. What the heck, it's good all over.
There's an herbal/homeopathic element to the product that I like -- it has aloe, arnica, comfrey, yarrow and chamomile, as well as vitamin E. It also has 'cones ... "a proprietary blend, consisting of several different dimethicones, that offer a very high degree of protection to the skin..." which I hope won't keep skin care mavens from trying this effective product (I had no adverse reaction from it, it doesn't clog pores, its protective quality really lasts a long time).
You can check out Skin MD Natural's site content (http://www.skinmdnatural.com) for all the science I am not explaining here -- but what I can tell you is that it's a product that makes my skin look and feel better, it's an excellent base for makeup and has made my legs non-itchy for the first time in a couple of months. I think you should try it.
Especially if you live in Wyoming or Colorado, which are even worse than Washington (C and P, you know I'm talkin' to you.)
