Psoriasis is an auto-immune condition and management of what triggers the flare-ups is the most effective long-term treatment. That being said, there are some products in our range which will help to soothe your skin during flare-ups. The Pai Life blog also has tips on how best to treat Psoriasis including this article: World Psoriasis Day.
Below is the routine we would recommend people with psoriasis to start on. Once we see how your skin responds, we can start to edit, tweak or add to this.
Comfrey & Calendula Body Cream
The perfect alternative to aqueous creams, our rich Body Cream is packed with highly effective certified organic plant oils and butters to deeply nourish very dry aggravated skin. These ingredients actively support the natural moisture barrier while still allowing the skin to breathe, so your skin feels deeply nourished - never smothered. Calming Calendula brings visible relief to patches of irritation, while Comfrey helps to combat itchiness and contains a clever compound, allantoin, to improve the appearance of dry skin. This product can be used on body and scalp.
Camellia & Bergamot Gentle Genius Body Wash
Using a combination of gentle natural cleansing agents and a super soft, 100% natural Konjac Sponge, our creamy Body Wash creates a generous foam without sulfates. Deeply conditioning Camellia Oil is rich in plant squalene to help lock moisture into dry and distressed skin. It gives our Gentle Genius Body Wash a comforting texture, without the greasy feeling that can accompany some emollient body washes.
Rosehip BioRegenerate Oil
We find optimal results when a facial oil or serum is applied at overnight and the skin is not overloaded with too many products. Simply press 1-3 drops of Rosehip Oil into the face and neck just a few nights per week at first increasing the frequency once your skin is responding well. From time to time if you feel your skin needs a little extra hydration you can add one pump of Chamomile & Rosehip Day Cream to the oil and apply when necessary.
Chamomile & Rosehip Calming Day Cream
Apply 1-2 pumps of moisturizer to the skin directly after toning in the morning so the skin is slightly damp and the product easily penetrates into the skin. The moisturizer contains anti-inflammatory Chamomile and skin-strengthening Rosehip in concentrated form which works together to soothe, heal and protect very reactive skin. Every now and again when the skin requires a boost or extra protection combine with 1 drop of Rosehip BioRegenerate Oil and apply.
Our skin takes about 28 days to renew itself so for best results, try this routine consistently over 3-4 weeks before changing anything unless your skin reacts badly to a product in which case you should stop using this immediately.
