Psoriasis, its triggers and solutions…
With August being the hottest month of the year its only right that Psoriasis is the hot topic! Many suffer from this autoimmune disease in silence. Some don’t even know they have it; all they know is that they have an itch they’re dying to scratch.
So let’s talk Psoriasis! It is a non-contagious autoimmune disease that causes dry and uncomfortable patches of skin that are typically red, itchy, scaly and a times painful that can form in various areas on the body. Its development is a mystery as well as the potential triggers. Not to mention it can be very embarrassing and put a damper on your day and the cute outfit you wanted to wear.
With psoriasis being an autoimmune disease, it is believed that flare-ups are caused internally. Some triggers include stress, hard water, changes in climate, hot water, injury to the skin, smoking and Vitamin D deficiency. But we are here to reassure you that you don’t have to be embarrasses, uncomfortable or hide under layers of clothing.
For immediate topical relief from flare-ups we offer specially formulated therapeutic products that effectively address dry, scaly, flaky, itchy skin often associated with psoriasis. Start off with our Psorzema® Body Wash to gently cleanse away dead skin buildup without further irritating affected skin cells. Continue with our Psorzema® Cream that gently calms and soothes irritated scaling skin. For instant itch relief, use our Itch Relief Lotion to provide quick comfort to dry, itchy, and/or irritated skin. For day-to-day protection and moisture, we recommend our Vitamin E 12,000 IU Cream that can be used anywhere on the face and body to help moisturize and protect skin while fighting free radical damage. And last but not least, to soothe a variety of conditions that might cause a flare-up before your psoriasis kicks in, we recommend our Tea Tree and E Antiseptic Cream. This soothing, deep-moisturizing cream is effective in comforting skin with cuts, scrapes, blemishes, blisters, rashes, insect bites, poison ivy, dryness and skin overexposed to the sun. Don’t let psoriasis affect your quality of life!
Please note: Psoriasis usually has an internal component that needs to be addressed in order to resolve the condition completely. We highly recommend you work with a natural healthcare practitioner to help resolve this condition.
