A neat product

Posted by Kathy G on 12/27/04 at 10:54 (166190)

Each winter, the skin at the tip of two of my nails, splits and is quite painful. Just a minor annoyance, but it hurts. There is a product called Skin Shield that I tried and it works very well. You apply it with the supplied brush and it forms a protective shield over the area.

It smells like nail polish and acetone is, in fact, the first ingredient listed but it also has Cod Liver oil and other soothing ingredients. If you apply two coats, it doesn't even come off when you get your hands wet. It worked beautifully and I just wanted to tell you about it.

I don't know if it would help people like Ralph, who have pulled the skin off their feet with tape, but it might be worth a try.

Sounds interesting! Is it widely available, like at the local Wal Mart?

From what I understand, it is. I bought mine at Brook's.
