A look at psoriasis: Psoriasis is a non-contagious lifelong skin disease that has been diagnosed in 4.5 million adults in the United States. It appears as raised, red patches or lesions covered with white buildup of dead skin cells, called scale. There are different forms of psoriasis. In many cases, the scales are accompanied by blisters or red spots. People who suffer from psoriasis often experience inflammation and itchiness.
Africa's Recommended Treatment:
The African Solution: Dudu-Osun black soap Shea Butter & Aloe Vera soap All two soaps are natural, and are hand-made in Africa. Dudu-Osun contains healing tropical herbs and honey which work to heal and protect skin. Shea butter with Aloe Soap gives you intense miniaturization while natural vitamins and aloe vera go deep in pores and provide nutrition.
The African Solution:
Shea Butter Cocoa Butter Aloe Butter Mango Butter
In order to protect your skin, and to alleviate itching you need to provide a moisture barrier. Shea butter gives intense moisture that lasts for days, cocoa butter is also a popular choice. Aloe butter is a lighter moisturizer, but it will really soothe the itchiness and pain. Mango butter is also a lighter moisturizer than the shea butter, but is better for people with more sensitive or oily skin.
After cleansing and moisturizing, it’s good to take an extra step to protect your skin. Here are a few options for you:
The neem solution: Neem oil is one of the best ways to treat psoriasis. It moisturizes and protects the skin, while it helps to heal the lesions, scaling and irritation. Simply apply to all areas of irritation.
Take a dead sea bath: Relax and kick back in a dead sea bath. Dead sea salts are famous for their healing mineral content. People from across the globe travel to the dead sea to bathe in its healing waters. We recommend dissolving 1-2 cups of dead sea salts in a warm bath. Soak for 20-30 minutes, and then rinse with warm water. The healing minerals will penetrate the skin and heal from the inside out.
Alternate remedies: Add apple cider vinegar to your bath or apply topically for relief from psoriasis.
