Organic skincare products for psoriasis
Psoriasis is more than just dry skin, and the problems it causes extend way beyond cosmetic concerns. These red, scaly and sometimes itchy or painful patches occur when the immune system attacks our healthy skin cells, and usually show up around the knees, scalp, elbows and sometimes the face. Around one in fifty people have it, so there’s plenty of advice out there on management – let’s check out the basics.
Don’t let psoriasis flare ups get in the way of a good time – find out more about this condition and Canabella’s skincare products you can treat it with.
What causes psoriasis?
* Those old skin enemies: stress, alcohol, and smoking
- Infections: when the immune system is working overtime psoriasis is made more likely.
- Medications: check in with your doctor, as lithium and beta-blockers can trigger psoriasis.
- Weather: cold, dry weather can make psoriasis symptoms worse, while hot, humid weather can make them better. Time for a tropical holiday, anyone?
Fighting your psoriasis flare-ups with this organic skincare range
There are a bunch of self-care and medication options out there to keep scaly skin at bay, but definitely check in with your dermatologist first before making any treatment decisions. The medication route you may look at will depend on the severity and location of your lesions, and these vary significantly from person to person. Some people will manage fine by avoiding triggers and maintaining their moisturiser routine, while others will need a little more skin TLC.
A warm bath with added colloidal oatmeal or Dead Sea salts can often do the trick for inflammation and itching relief (plus can be great for stress relief!).
And of course, Cannabella has some incredible psoriasis-soothing products for you to check out. Let’s dive in.
Indulge in La Tropica Body Serum
This natural hemp-based body moisturiser can be slathered all over the body to soothe psoriasis-affected skin and prevent flare ups. It is packed with a heavenly scented blend of natural essential oils and antioxidants on an inflammation-busting Aloe Vera base.
Our raw, unfiltered hemp seed oil is a key ingredient which also contains high levels of Chlorophyll, a plant pigment proven to benefit irritation.
Lightweight and free from the greasiness or oiliness that other moisturizers can leave behind, we’re sure your skin will love it.
Your skin shield: Hemp Jelly & Vegan Hemp Jelly
We simply can’t get enough of these gentle hemp balms that seriously quench and protect aggravated skin – psoriasis being no exception. Hemp Seed Oil is of course the hero ingredient here, but this luxe jelly is also rich in essential fatty acids to really calm down an inflamed complexion. Infused with Shea Butter, Beeswax, Jojoba and Avocado Oils, and vitamins E and A, Hemp Jelly provides deep hydration and support to the skin’s immune system while you support your own.
Whether you go for our regular or vegan jelly, they’re both versatile salves that can be used on all skin types and are free from petrochemicals. Perfect for the family bathroom cabinet!
To use for the treatment of psoriasis, simply massage a small amount of Hemp Jelly onto any areas of your face or body that feel dry, flaky, scaly or irritated. You’ll breathe a sigh of relief as it penetrates deeply to repair, comfort, and protect your skin, while also hydrating and soothing your discomfort.
