ALERT: What to Avoid in Natural Skin Care Products This Extreme Winter Season

Beverly Hills, CA If you’ve walked into a drug store or department store to shop for skin care products recently, you may have been a bit overwhelmed by all of the options available. Especially in this cold winter season, choosing the best skin care products for skin doesn’t have to be hard – one just needs to know what to look for and what to avoid.

The first thing to look for is the word “natural”.

Currently the FDA does not regulate cosmetic or personal skin care products. In addition to this, there are no laws in place to protect or warn the consumer when it comes to using the term “natural” on their packaging. For that reason, it is important to look at the ingredients list and do a little investigative work before purchasing any cosmetic or skin care product.

Ingredients which are most prevalent begin at the top of the list per FDA regulations. Products with natural ingredients appearing at the top of the ingredients list will be healthier for one’s skin than a product with only a few natural ingredients listed at the very bottom of the list. It’s a simple way to at least know there are more “natural” than chemical ingredients.

Recently, The National Institute of Child Health and Human Development participated in a study showing that an ineffective skin barrier may lead to dry skin conditions including eczema. What one needs to look for is a unique natural skin care product designed to hydrate and work with the skin to strengthen its own natural barrier defense.

A new dry skin treatment, Skin MD Natural Shielding Lotion, has been found to help strengthen the skin’s natural barriers to toxins and daily irritants. Skin MD Natural Shielding lotion has also been found to reduce dry skin irritation and significantly helps in the healing process where eczema is concerned.

“With the use of Skin MD Natural we get faster results and the patient has to use less medication. Hands down a shielding lotion works better than any conventional lotion,” explains Dr. Peter Helton, a board-certified dermatologist of Newport Beach California.

Skin MD Natural Shielding Lotion was developed by a team of innovative chemists, with over 50 years of combined experience developing personal care products for many internationally respected cosmetic companies. It is formulated with a special blend of five natural plant extracts that provide skin with unbeatable moisture while being lightweight and non-greasy. Skin MD Natural is also committed to protecting the environment and is proud to say Skin MD Natural and Skin MD Natural + SPF 15 are manufactured in the United States using 100% solar power, free of animal products and animal testing.
