Great for problem skin
on 26 September 2016
I have had psoriasis on my face for about 20 years. Have spent an absolute fortune visiting private doctors and paying for potions. Only one thing actually did work, a course of tablets which controls the glands over producing oil on your face which in turn makes the skin crack/flake on your face, along with red blotching. Only thing was that you could not go out in the direct sunlight for 3 months!
Anyway, psoriasis never goes away forever, but I have learnt how to control it when it flares up. Washing your face every morning (doesn't have to be expensive potion) with a moisturising face wash. My skin will start to dry up and tighten after about 20 mins. So then apply a moisturising cream, I use one that says it's for dry skin conditions. This keeps my face calm for most of the day.
At night time I fill a sink full of warm / hot water and dissolve a table spoon of these salts and dunk my face in for 30 seconds at a time. I repeat this about 10 times. I don't dry my face, I just put a towel around my and let the water drip off. I leave it like this overnight, I don't wah the salt off my face, it does stings a bit. I then start the routine again in the morning.
I do all of this when it flares up, normally I get away with just the face wash and moisturiser.
I hope this has helped someone suffering with the same condition... it's a horrible thing.that won't go away, but at least there are ways of controlling it. I'm on my third bag and it does help.
