The condition is not contagious, and it is fairly common, affecting 2 - 3% of Americans. Plaque psoriasis is a chronic (long-lasting) inflammatory skin condition that is caused partly by an overactive immune system. This causes the body to grow skin cells up to 10 times faster than normal. Instead of shedding, these skin cells pile up on top of each other and form red, raised patches of skin, called plaques.
Psoriasis most commonly appears on the scalp, knees, elbows, torso, and very infrequently on the face. Patches may begin as slightly thickened areas of dry skin that appear red or pink, skin lesions including red, scaly patches, Gradually, the patches can become thicker, itchier, or more painful. These symptoms can develop slowly or suddenly. If skin is scratched the symptoms can worsen more quickly. The symptoms of psoriasis vary greatly in terms of severity. Some people experience subtle itching and flaking while others experience extreme pain and burning.
L’BRI products have shown to be beneficial to those with psoriasis. Aloe, a natural anti-inflammatory, is the first ingredient in L’BRI skin care products, along with other soothing and healing ingredients. Many individuals have found this to provide relief and lessening of their psoriasis symptoms. It is important to note that even though many individuals have achieved results with consistent use of our L’BRI products – not everyone will. Under no circumstances do we recommend that an individual stop using any medications that they are currently taking for their psoriasis before checking with their physician.
Recommended facial skin care treatment for those with psoriasis:
After determining your skin type, dry, oily, or combination, recommend the appropriate skin care trio. If facial psoriasis exists, which is rare, avoid any type of exfoliation at the start of the program. The Rejuvenating Facial Peel and Facial Masque can be added to your skin care regimen after the condition improves. For people with aging skin concerns such as loss of firmness, wrinkling, or uneven texture, L’BRI anti-aging serums such as Dermaplex, Intense Night Repair and Maxifirm are excellent additions to the skin care regimen.
Recommended body care treatment for those with psoriasis:
We recommend the L’BRI Body Wash and Hand & Body Lotion for moderately dry skin that is not too red and scaly. We recommend Intense Moisture Crème for those with severe redness and dryness. Hand and Body Lotion or Intense Moisture Crème should be applied twice a day, morning and night. For faster healing for those with severe psoriasis, beneficial results have been achieved by applying the Aloe Vera Barbadensis Jelly followed by Intense Moisture Crème.
