Psoriasis is thought to be an autoimmune disease that causes the skin to grow extra skin cells in patches anywhere on the body.
These patches, called skin plaques, can be very painful and irritated and cause itching, bleeding and even skin splitting.
While the exact cause of psoriasis is not known, there are many natural, and other, treatments for psoriasis. Many people use vitamin creams, mineral oils, petroleum jelly and argan oil with limited success.
Unfortunately, many psoriasis creams and psoriasis products available today can make the problem worse, as the chemicals they contain irritate and inflame the skin even further.
Many of these psoriasis creams contain harsh ingredients like coal tar, which can be carcinogenic, corticosteroids, which only mask the problem instead of curing it, and retinoids that are sensitising to the skin. Many of these psoriasis creams also contain petrochemcials and parabens.
For a psoriasis cream to be effective, it must calm the irritation and inflammation associated with the disease, and restore the skin to proper functioning so it can heal itself and skin plaques can reduce.
Skin Care By Sia’s range of natural skin care, Chiral Actives, contains only natural, chemical free plant ingredients, to sooth and restore the skin.
This chirally correct range can be used by even the most sensitive skins, and many creams have been used successfully to treat psoriasis on their own, or in conjunction with other prescribed psoriasis cream.
Retinaldehyde, the most potent and natural form of vitamin A available today, is key to Chiral Actives’ success with psoriasis. Retinaldehyde is very effective at restructuring the skin while being so gentle it can be used by pregnant and breastfeeding women.
Skin Care By Sia has also very successfully used light therapy to treat psoriasis. Light therapy involves exposing the skin to various wavelengths of light to heal certain skin conditions and improve the overall condition and hydration of the complexion.
Light treatment achieves amazing results in the skin, including accelerated wound healing, deep cell stimulation and a significant reduction in bacteria.
Our healing light therapy can treat all skin concerns, including wrinkles, scarring, sagging facial contours, rosacea, eczema, psoriasis, inflammation, redness, dryness and infection. This is because light therapy boosts collagen, nourishing the cells and restoring the complexion from the inside out.
