Psoriasis is a chronic skin condition caused by an overactive immune system. Symptoms include flaking, inflammation, and thick, white, silvery, or red patches of skin. -Source: WebMD
Most people don't know that I have mild Psoriasis. I didn't start getting breakouts until I was in my mid-20's, and it happens once a year or so. I'm lucky in that it's usually just a patch near my left elbow, and that it's pretty easy to hide, but that doesn't help the itching. I've tried home remedies before (that didn't do much), but I always end up having to go to my doctor for a steroid cream.
I want to tell you about a new treatment on the market that provides visible Psoriasis symptom relief in just days without a prescription! That means that it not only relieves the itching, but actually helps reduce the appearance of Psoriasis and helps prevent recurrence!
But first, a few tips to help cover up those Psoriasis breakouts until you can relieve the symptoms:
Where is your breakout? If it's on arms or legs, the simplest solution is to wear long pants, a long skirt, or long sleeves, but what if your Psoriasis is on your neck or hands? In that case you can get creative with jaunty scarves, hats, stylish gloves, or even hairstyles.
If you have Psoriasis on your face, you can cover the plaques with makeup, but make sure you treat them with a rich moisturizing cream first (like the one below.) Apply your foundation as you normally would, then apply a thicker formula concealer over the affected area with a makeup brush (not your fingers or you may just succeed in wiping it back off.) Once covered, set your concealer for longer wear with a light dusting of translucent powder.
Remember to wear fabrics that breathe, or you can make the uncomfortable itching worse. Choose lightweight clothing made in cottons, linens, or silks to keep your skin from sweating underneath.
For the guys: You may not have as many options for cover-up as the ladies, so just remember that there is an art to not drawing attention to an area, or to drawing attention to another area. The best option is to treat asap and work to prevent future breakouts.
There are 3 Psoriasin formulas so you can choose the one that's just right for your needs. All contain the active ingredient coal tar, and all provide multi-symptom relief of the itching, flaking, and redness of psoriasis.
1. Psoriasin Ointment - Thick and deeply moisturizing
This formula is thick and will stay put right where you need it. It helps keep skin supple, flexible and feeling more comfortable. I would actually prefer this formula in the winter, when you need more moisture in your skin, and on places like hands where it might rub or or be washed off more easily.
2. Psoriasin Gel - Light and quick drying
This formula spreads easily, absorbs and dries quickly, and won't rub off. I would recommend it if you need something fast-drying so that you can dress quickly. I smelled alcohol in the fast-drying gel, so would say this one is for normal-to-oily skin types; Regular use on dry skin would dry it out even further, so if you have dry skin or skin that needs a little extra soothing, I would recommend the next formula:
3. Psoriasin Advanced Treatment Cream - with Vitamin D & Oatmeal
This formula is creamy like a lotion and non-greasy. It coats well and is low odor. It contains Vitamin D and Oatmeal to moisturize and soothe.
If you're wondering if your skin condition may be Psoriasis, see your doctor first, then skip the expensive prescription. There are also coupons available at www.Psoriasin.com.
