Skin Solutions for Psoriasis
Psoriasis seems to be a problem for many of my clients. This condition can come and go through one’s lifetime.
Let’s look at what Psoriasis is? Psoriasis is a condition in which skin cells build up and form scales and itchy, dry patches.
Psoriasis is a disease of inflammation, so it makes sense that an anti-inflammatory diet might help reduce symptoms. ... On a diet for psoriasis, try cutting out whole milk and full-fat cheeses, which are rich in saturated fat, and opt for lower-fat versions instead. Also, junk foods which tend to be high in saturated and trans fats and refined starches and sugars, all of which can promote an inflammation.
According to the American Academy of Dermatology, Psoriasis is a genetic condition that can be triggered by environmental factors, such as a stressful life event. Also, having psoriasis is stressful in itself, which contributes to flare-ups, too. It is generally accepted that stress on its own does not cause psoriasis. However, research has shown that stress and anxiety can trigger a flare.
Overly dry skin can also trigger Psoriasis. Avoid overly hot showers, which may dry your skin. After bathing, pat your skin dry with a towel and apply an unscented lotion to help lock in moisture. You may also want to use a humidifier in your home if the air is dry. Dry, cold temperatures also can contribute, such weather can dry out your skin, which makes the chances of having a flare-up worse.
Oatmeal soap can ease the pain and itching associated with psoriasis. It may also help reduce the redness of psoriasis patches. Research has found that oatmeal can reduce inflammation and may even prevent the skin from releasing chemicals that promote inflammation.
Topical application of omega-3 fatty acids boast alpha-linolenic acid in the epidermis and may help reduce skin symptoms. There are many claims that soaps and creams made from goat's milk help clear psoriasis skin patches. Omega-3 fatty acids are abundant in fatty fish such as salmon, mackerel, sardines, and albacore tuna and are the foundation of a heart-healthy diet. Fish oils are thought to reduce inflammation and help the immune system, which is overactive in people with psoriasis.
