I was contacted recently by the wonderful people at Skin MD Natural to review their skin care product. I did a little research first to make sure it would be something that would 'fit' our family before agreeing. Skin MD Natural sounded perfect for Jay in particular.
Jay has extremely dry skin. He also doesn't go out of his way to use sunscreen. He goes by the theory that because he has dark skin he won't burn, so doesn't need it. He doesn't understand just how damaging UV rays can be or how beneficial a shielding lotion would be for his skin. Did I also mention that he's a teenager. For the past 6 months or so he's been trying to take extra good care of himself (probably to impress girls) … you know, flossing, being picky with his hair products and making sure he looks nice before leaving the house. We live in California where it's hot. It's January and yet it's 80 degrees at the moment. Jay loves to surf and be outdoors, which means he is out in the sun, a lot. He loves to wear shorts, but has always felt very self conscious wearing them because his legs have always been so dry and flaky.
When the Skin MD Natural arrived Jay was pretty excited to try it. He applied it every morning for a week and loved the results.
This is what he had to say this morning:
"My skin was really dry. I tried it every day for a week and my skin feels a lot smoother"
I also got a "mum you really need to start buying this for me when my bottle runs out" request. He must really like it.
So there you have it. Skin MD Natural is a hit with the teenager. This means it is also a hit with me. Not only is he applying a natural skin care lotion to his body every day, but this one also contains SPF 15 so I no longer have to harass him to apply a sunscreen before leaving the house.
