Fight Off Psoriasis

Fight Off Psoriasis

If you have ever suffered with psoriasis you know the struggles of searching out relief. There are pricey over-the-counter products or prescription medications that may offer temporary relief. There are also quite a few natural cures for dealing with psoriasis.

One natural cure for psoriasis is in learning how to bathe correctly. Proper bathing and showering are important for dealing with psoriasis and preventing future outbreaks. Showers or baths should be short and in lukewarm water. Spending too long in the bath or in hot water will dry out and irritate the skin. It is also a good idea to bathe in mineral, vegetable, or olive oil to relief the itching and inflammation. After the shower or bath, be sure to lotion up and lock in the moisture.

Another natural remedy is to drink lots of water. Drinking water will keep the skin and body hydrated from the inside out. As important as it is to keep the skin moisturised, keeping the body hydrated will ward off outbreaks. Drinking water is easy and cheap.

The next thing you can do is pay attention to the food you eat. The problem with changing your diet is that the foods that are good for your body may actually cause a flare-up. Fruits can help fight aging of the skin, but they can also cause flare-ups. Adding in some fish and nuts that contain Omega-3 fatty acids is good for the skin as well. Omega-3 can help prevent future breakouts and reduce the amount of time for current flare-ups to heal.

One final thing to try is finding and using natural supplements that are said to help with psoriasis. It may require some research to find the best treatment for you, but the all natural qualities are good for your body and skin. Vitamin supplements are great as well, especially Vitamins E and C.   Aloe Vera and Olive oil can be taken internally or externally and both are great for the skin.

Psoriasis may not have a cure, but finding some natural ways to deal with the symptoms and controlling the outbreaks can make all the difference in the world.
