I recently read an article about moisturizers in which the author stated that all moisturizers are basically the same: They all provide moisture to the skin and they all prevent moisture loss. If that were true, having used moisturizer for the first time we would never have to look for one that does a better job – and that is certainly not the case. In fact, traditional moisturizers can actually cause dry skin, which is why thousands of doctors now recommend a good shielding lotion for dry skin care.
“Many traditional moisturizers restore the moisture to the skin on a temporary basis. But with continued use, they actually send a message back to the skin saying it doesn’t need any further moisture to be produced by the skin, and so we can end up with the opposite condition where the skin is less hydrated than prior to using the moisturizers,” said Dr. Lisa Benest, a board certified dermatologist practicing in Burbank, California.
To make matters worse, most traditional moisturizers contain toxic ingredients. Petroleum and petroleum by-products such as mineral oil are good examples.
A Columbia University study found that the breast tissue of women with breast cancer contained significantly higher levels of petroleum than women without breast cancer. Another study, conducted in a hospital on infants with systemic candidiasis found that infants on whom petroleum products were used were 11 times more at risk for systemic candidiasis than those on whom petroleum products had not been used. In fact, when the petroleum products were stopped, the candidiasis cleared right up. These are only two of many studies.
Why is a shielding lotion different? A good shielding lotion bonds with the outer layer of skin to form a protective layer that locks in moisture without clogging the pores and prevents the absorption of outside irritants and chemicals which, in most cases, caused the dry skin in the first place. This protection can prevent the development of dry skin and allow existing dry skin to heal. Also, it does not contain toxic ingredients.
If you want to stop the never-ending search for a dry skin care product that will do a better job than traditional moisturizers, give shielding lotion a try.
