Psoriasis

Psoriasis is a common skin disorder that produces thick red plaques covered with silvery scales. The most common areas affected are the scalp, elbows, knees, and lower back, although any skin surface may be involved. It can also occur in the nails and body folds. The exact cause of psoriasis is unknown. Doctors believe that the immune system is a factor in the development of psoriasis. This is because increased numbers of white blood cells are present between the abnormal layers of skin and because psoriasis responds to drugs that suppress the immune system.

The 7 Types of Psoriasis

Psoriasis is not contagious and cannot be passed from person to person.

Factors that may trigger psoriasis include:

  • Infections, such as strep throat or thrush
    Injury to the skin, such as a cut or scrape, bug bite, or a severe sunburn
    Stress
    Cold weather
    Smoking
    Heavy alcohol consumption
    Certain medications — lithium, high blood pressure medications, antimalarial drugs and iodides

Currently there is no cure for psoriasis.

Treatment is based on the type of psoriasis you have, its location, its severity, and your age and overall health. It also depends on how much you are affected either physically (such as joint pain) or emotionally (embarrassment or frustration from a skin rash that may be highly visible).

Treatment for mild psoriasis begins with skin care by keeping your skin moist. Basic treatment that you can get without a prescription.

  • Creams, ointments, and lotions to moisturize the skin.
  • Shampoos, oils, and sprays to treat psoriasis of the scalp.
  • Some exposure to sunlight.

Topical medicines for psoriasis treatment include:

Vitamin D compounds, such as calcipotriene.
Topical corticosteroids, such as betamethasone.
Anthralin and tars.
Retinoids, such as tazarotene.
Salicylic acid, promotes sloughing of dead skin cells and reduces scaling.

Moisturizing creams won’t heal psoriasis but they can reduce itching and scaling and can help combat the dryness that results from other therapies.

Skin Care Inside Out

A person’s appearance can start becoming less appealing with age.  This is just a hard fact and most people are bothered by this.  There are many changes that happen as a person ages. The first thing that a person can do is to work out and have a good diet.  Most people do not know what makes up a good diet or work out program.  However, talking with a professional trainer and dietitian can help a person get on the right path. When dieting do not forget about skin care. Not only do we have to tone and shape our muscles, we also need to take care of the outside covering. AKA our SKIN.

Determine your skin type and buy skin care products for your skin type. This is an incredibly important step. You should also take into consideration specific issues that your skin has.

  • Normal Skin-Normal skin is smooth and firm to the touch with small or medium sized pores.
  • Dry Skin-If your skin feels very tight and is noticeably flaky in areas, then you have dry skin. Dry skin can be caused by lack of hydration or malnutrition.
  • Oily Skin-Oily skin is easy to identify. If your face is visibly shiny, and literally feels slightly wet to the touch then you have oily skin. Oily skin come with large pores that are more noticeable, and usually is more prone to blemishes.
  • Combination Skin-Combination skin gets a taste of just about every skin type. If you have combination skin, you tend to get oily around your nose, chin, and forehead area, and dry around your cheeks. The rest of your skin is pretty normal.
  • Sensitive Skin– Sensitive skin is very hard to deal with because it isn’t as durable as other skin types.

Some thing you may need to care for your skin.

If you don’t already have them, you will need to buy a cleanser, toner, moisturizer, exfoliant, cotton pads & a face mask. Cleanse, tone and moisturize twice a day – once in the morning before you put on makeup, and once at night before you go to bed. A few minutes after cleansing, tone your face with toner and a cotton pad. Once or twice a week, in place of your daily cleanser, you should exfoliate with an exfoliating facial wash. Apply a face mask regularly.

Nutrition and Weight Loss Members

Looking for a diet programs on net is like looking for a proverbial needle in a haystack. No matter which diet program we choose  we have to be careful about our normal diet habits. This helps in shedding weight and keeps us healthy and happy.

Unfortunately there is a lot of misinformation about nutrition and weight loss. The best nutrition comes from such foodstuff as fruits, vegetables and various proteins. Or is it? Experts agree that it is nearly impossible to adequately meet your nutritional needs with our modern diet alone. Our soils have been depleted of most essential nutrients since the 1930′s. Farmers regularly replace nutrients required for plant growth-nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium. Rarely do the farmers replace the minerals and other nutrients missing from our diets. So where do we get them. You guessed it, we must take supplements to get the proper balance.

Picking the correct supplement is vital to your health. There are many options and are enough to make your head spin. With so many differences in quality between brands. The cheapest,  ‘has everything’ vitamin may not have much in the way of active ingredients, but the most expensive brands may not, either.

The most important way to stay healthy is to pay attention to you. Respect yourself enough to take care of your physical needs. If something needs fixing just do it. Learn how to take care of  yourself.

Learn the benefits in consuming such products. Get the facts before you make the decision to supplement.
