Mild psoriasis and not so mild eczema exists in my own family, thus I am not immune to those of you who suffer. I have seen extreme cases of both in many people, particularly our customers who seek alternatives to the commercial products and steroid creams. Diet, environmental factors and skin care products should all be considered when seeking to improve any skin issues.
We have many suggestions to help 'the dry and the itchy', such as psoriasis presents.
Here are two of them.
The potential to use a cream that does NOT do its intended job is all too real. The goal is to moisturize and that is vital. Too many creams contain chemical preservatives like BHA, parabens, and fragrances. We prefer a natural substance like butter or oil, or a homemade skin cream, one that you make yourself, or like ours (not one made from a commercial base) and one that you understand the ingredient label. You can also use organic butters like shea or coconut. Or good oils, not mineral, petroleum based oils. You might opt for a good coconut oil that can be purchased from food stores or heath food stores.
2. Organic Apple Cider Vinegar
Try 1:3 or 1:4 vinegar to water mix and put in a spritz bottle for use in the shower. Buy only organic apple cider vinegar with the ‘mother’. Braggs has the market and it is good. Or, ask your local farmer for the organic variety, non-processed. Spray all over. Helps to calm the psoriasis, dryness and itching.
For your bath soak add 1-2 cups to the bath and soak. ACV is an incredible cleanser, reducing itching and nourishing the skin.
