What is psoriasis?
The name of this chronic disorder comes from the Greek word psora, meaning scurf, itch or rash.
Psoriasis is an extensive disorder that does not only manifest on the skin. It is a so called systemic disorder. That means that there might be connections between psoriasis and joint issues, intestinal issues, eye disorders and cardiovascular diseases.
It manifests on the skin as an excess production of skin cells, forming scaling, red patches. It can emerge anywhere on the body and the variation in outbreaks - where they are located and their íntensity - is highly individual.
This is one of the most common widespread diseases in Sweden, where approximately 300,000 people live with psoriasis.
Psoriasis is hard to diagnose as there is no specific method to do so. The most common course of action when psoriasis is suspected, is for the dermatologist to observe and follow up the patient for a longer period of time. If you suspect that you have psoriasis, you should consult a physician.
There is no treatment to cure psoriasis, since the cause of the condition is unknown. Heredity and infections are suspected causes. Psoriasis can only be relieved, not cured.
Skincare from MARIA ÅKERBERG is well suited to strenghten the skin and keep it supple, soft and moisturised in order to prevent sores from forming during flare-ups.
Products from MARIA ÅKERBERG only contain natural raw materials that work together with the skin, rather than oppose it. The natural ingredients are easily absorbed by the skin and affect the tissue underneath. MARIA ÅKERBERG strives to strengthen the skin in a long-term and natural manner, instead of just easing the problems temporarily.
For the face
Use skincare products according to your skin type. Make it a habit to exfoliate 1-2 times/week, for example with AHA & Jojoba Peeling, and follow up with Face Mask Moist for nourishment. Keep the skin soft and moisturised with a facial oil, suitable for your skin type, and the proper facial cream. Our Eye Cream is well suited for the entire eye area, including the eye lids where psoriasis may manifest.
For the body
Scrub your body 1-2 times/week, especially on the afflicted areas. Salt Scrub Energy may be a good alternative, since the salt has disinfectant properties and the oils are moisturising. After cleansing your body, apply body oil, for example Royal Body Oil, and add moisture with Body Lotion. This way the skin remains elastic and more resilient during flare-ups.
At times, affected areas can feel moist and macerated. In those cases, only Aloe Vera Barbadensis should be used. Avoid oils and creams since those can soften the skin even more and worsen the condition.
For the scalp
Use Scalp Scrub Intensive 1-2 times/week after washing your hair with our gentle Hair & Body Schampoo. Scalp Scrub Intensive contains AHA from Sugar Beets, which removes dead skincells from the scalp and softens build-up. During flare-ups, make sure to keep the skin extra soft by using a hair mask overnight. You can use Body Balm White Chocolate on the scalp and wash it out the following day. Then apply Scalp Treatment Rosemary to your towel-dried hair and leave it in until the next time you wash your hair.
