Why do Dermatologists Prefer Shielding Lotion?Skin Care ProfessionalsTestimonial Back to Testimonials Share your story Lisa BenestBoard Certified Dermatologist "As a dermatologist with many years of experience treating skin problems, I can tell you what the major causes are.Is Our Dermis in Danger? "We live in a much more toxic environment today and our skin bears the brunt."One of them is exposure to irritants and chemicals in the everyday environment. We live in a much more toxic environment today and our skin bears the brunt. When we are exposed to harsh conditions in the environment it can have a very negative effect on our skin.What is happening to our skin? "The skin is our largest organ - its primary function is to protect the body from pollutants, toxins and irritants."The skin is our largest organ - its primary function is to protect the body from pollutants, toxins and irritants. It keeps the bad stuff out. When it loses the ability to do that we are exposed to all that bad stuff. Skin needs the natural oils and moisture it produces to be healthy, but with the stresses our skin is exposed to, these factors are often not present. Dry skin and other skin conditions come about when the protective outer layer is stripped away and irritants and bacteria get into the skin. The reason Shielding Lotions are so effective is that they replace the protective barrier and allow the skin to heal from within.What is a Shielding Lotion?…, it will prevent skin conditions from developing,…A Shielding Lotion bonds with the outer layer of the skin and protects it from outside irritants and chemicals, so it will prevent skin conditions from developing or it will help an existing condition to heal.A conventional lotion is not formulated to protect the skin like a Shielding Lotion does. Conventional lotions only add surface moisture to temporarily alleviate the dryness or itching.Shielding Lotions stay on because they bond with the skin and protect it for long periods of time. With this protection in place your skin keeps its own moisture in and has a chance to use this natural moisture in the deep layers of the skin to heal itself.Solution - Gloves in a Bottle. "…, did not come back to the office for another visit…,"We recommend Gloves In A Bottle® dry skin treatment to our patients and we have typically seen them ask for refills. Often our best indicator that the lotion worked effectively is the fact that they did not come back to the office for another visit - the condition cleared right up."
