Argan Oil for Psoriasis
Psoriasis is a skin disorder that causes skin cells to replace themselves much faster. They form dry 'plaques' or 'patches' on the skin that can be itchy, red or scaly. It currently affects about 2% -3% of the people in the UK. It can occur at any age.
This immune deficiency can cause lots of stress for the patient and embarrassing patches on most parts of the skin. Medication is sometimes harsh and can affect the stomach or liver. Argan oil is a natural solution to treat psoriasis. It doesn’t pose any side effects and it's very easy to use.
First and foremost, you should make sure that you're getting 100% pure argan oil and not a cheap and ineffective imitation.
Look for certified products. Because of the higher cost (about £14.95 per 50 ml) you might be tempted to get some bargains or diluted forms. Products just including argan oil as an ingredient or very cheap bottles can be really ineffective.
Argan oil doesn't contain any parabens, fragrances, dyes, sulphates, petrochemicals, triclosan or any other potentially harmful chemical.
That's why is completely safe for the extremely sensitive skin of people with psoriasis.
The main components of argan oil for psoriasis that relieve the symptoms of psoriasis are fatty acids, vitamin E and carotenoids. They balance the natural moisture levels of the skin and help reduce the inflammation. The itchiness, pain and redness will be instantly diminished after you apply the oil to the skin. The skin patches will become less noticeable and therefore less embarrassing.
Massage argan oil one or twice a day. It is easily absorbed by the skin, unlike other oils. Clean the affected area with a gentle and natural soap, that doesn't contain fragrance or chemicals.
Pat the area dry with a soft towel. Don't rub it. Just wipe out the humidity in a mild way. Apply one or two drops of argan oil and massage it in until it's totally absorbed.
For the scalp, place a few drops of oil until there is enough to gently massage the whole area. Put a shower cap on and leave it overnight. Rinse out with a special mild shampoo when you wake up.
Pure argan oil is a safe and natural way to get relief and to avoid the progress of psoriasis. Reviews of argan oils manufactured by different brands reveal that this oil can ever clear old patches for the first time. Find a reliable UK store that sells it and use this oil on a daily basis.
