Psoriasis Beauty Tips For Summer


Any skin condition can make us feel unattractive, while acne sufferers may feel unappealing; society general knows what those bumps are. That is not to imply that those prone to acne breakouts don’t have their own set of issues to contend with. Despite approximately 6 million Americans suffering from psoriasis, people generally don’t have a clue about the red, scaly, dry patches on the skin, called plaques, caused by this autoimmune disease.

Whereas you can find an abundance of products to cover a plethora of skin issues, beautifying psoriasis-inflicted skin isn’t so easy. A lot depends on the location and severity of the plaques. Like it or not, the first place to begin is with a treatment plan for which you need to discuss with your doctor. But since it is know that the frequency and intensity of outbreaks varies due to specific reasons, knowing those reasons is the first line of defense at home. The known causes of psoriasis outbreaks are stress, diet and seasonal changes.

Take time for yourself and distress. This is the best beauty treatment for anyone. As for your diet, some psoriasis suffers have found relief from avoiding fried foods and implementing Omega-3 into their diet. Check Home Remedies. As for seasonal changes, this goes beyond cold versus warm weather. It has more to do with bundled up versus au naturale. Generally we’re pretty covered up throughout the colder months, with clothing constantly rubbing and irritating our skin. In the warmer months, we wear less clothing and this allows our skin to breath.

Reaching a “clearative” stage is not going to happen overnight. It takes work and you need to start now and you need to stick to a year-round beauty routine. Let’s begin in the shower. Hot water is not you friend! Water temperatures need to be lukewarm and you should always follow up a shower with moisturizer, paying particular attention to any plaque areas. For an overnight treatment, treat psoriasis patches with olive oil and wrap the area with plastic wrap. In the morning, gently wash the treated areas with a soap-free product.

A beauty product that has been on the market for years is Dermablend Cover Cream ($36). The Makeup Examiner remembers sitting at a cosmetology seminar and watching a woman remove Dermablend from her face to reveal port-wine stain that covered half of her skin. Dermablend is an amazing product for heavy coverage, but heavy coverage isn’t always what we’re seeking during the warmer months. For lighter coverage, Boo-Boo Cream can do the trick. Boo-Boo Cover-Up ($19.99) is a light, healing concealer that covers and nourishes. And just as with any makeup, you need to remove it before you hit the sack!
