Most of us take care of our skin so that it can stay healthy and keep us feeling youthful. But what happens if our skin is already damaged? Active skin repair is all about taking care of skin that needs a little extra TLC in order to get back to being vibrant and healthy, helping us feel our best.
What Causes Skin Damage?
Skin can get damaged in all sorts of ways. Here are some of the most common ways in which we can damage our skin, sometimes without even knowing it:
- Sun exposure
- Free radicals in the air
- Excessive friction
- Smoking (yes, this damages your skin!)
- Bacterial and fungal infections
- Excessive sweating
- Contact with chemicals and harsh ingredients
- Lack of moisturizing
While taking care of skin can actually be relatively simple, it can feel overwhelming when we think about all the things we need to be protecting our skin from.
How Can You Repair Already Damaged Skin?
If your skin is already damaged, you are most likely suffering from symptoms such as sunburn, skin irritation or inflammation, dry or cracked skin, itchy or sore patches, contact dermatitis or eczema. Applying a generic moisturizer will most likely not be enough to repair your skin.
Because your hands are always being used and are more likely to suffer from skin damage when compared to other areas of skin on our bodies, you want to actively fight the causes and symptoms of skin damage at its source. You need to look for a lotion that actively targets the symptoms of damaged skin. Gloves In A Bottle Shielding Lotion not only provides effective moisturizing but it also actively shields your hands from further damage by creating a thin barrier of protection on the outermost layer of the skin. This invisible layer is strong enough to keep out the things that can damage your skin, like pollutants, harsh chemicals and bacteria, and with the added SPF formula, it protects your hands from sun exposuretoo. Your skin can still breathe and sweat naturally but because of the shielding layer, the sweat won’t be sitting on top of your skin causing irritation.
Keeping your hands protected with a shielding lotion is the key to preventing further damage to your skin while repairing damage that has already occurred. Unfortunately, using a shielding lotion won’t help you stop smoking – if only it could do that – but it will help protect your hands from many other common causes of damage. If you want the same level of protection for your face or body, consider using Skin MD Natural Shielding Lotion.
When it comes to your skin, opt for a more active skin repair product that targets symptoms of damage. Knowing that simply using a shielding lotion can protect and heal your skin will help you see that good skin care can actually be quite simple!
