A lot of us, and especially our health care workers, could use any number of shields right now. Gloves in a Bottle, a self-described Shielding Lotion, is volunteering to be that protective barrier for our dry, cracked, responsibly-sanitized, but resultantly-uncomfortable skin.
Unlike most lotions and creams that provide superficial dry skin relief only for a short time, until you wash, sanitize, sweat, wash dishes, or run your hands repeatedly through your now-flowing shoulder-length locks again, Gloves in a Bottle says its lotion "actually bonds to the outer layer of skin, filling in any gaps and protecting skin for up to four hours while washing and sanitizing until it needs to be reapplied."
Gloves in a Bottle is designed to become part of your outer layer of skin, enhancing its ability to retain its own oils and moisture as it encounters harsh, drying chemicals and compounds in common sanitizers, alcohol, soaps, common household / workplace products, and moisture-stripping cosmetics. Its creators, and many supporters, say the Shielding Lotion doesn't wash off when you do, but gradually disappears during your skin's natural exfoliation process. It needs to be reapplied every 4 to 12 hours, depending on your activities.
My hands are itching - literally itching, and flaking too - for some Gloves in a Bottle these days, but I'm sure they're nowhere near as desiccated as hospital workers' and first responders'. The Shielding Lotion is approved for use in all areas of hospitals, and right now Gloves in a Bottle is offering free samples of it to any health care worker who contacts them with a request.

For everyone else, Gloves in a Bottle is available in various sizes, and with or without SPF. The listing here shows their standard 8-ounce bottle. The Shielding Lotion is vegan, hypoallergenic, and won't clog pores, plus is suitable for use not just on hands, but feet, other areas of the body, and even the face.
