Kitchen Cabinet Solution

March 25, 2014 — 3:22pm
I find salt and olive oil baths help soothe and clear my skin. I also add lavender essential oil to olive oil and apply that to my skin whenever my skin feels dry. My skin is much better, and I also find that a bit of sunshine helps. Read more »

Jamaican vacation

February 18, 2013 — 9:51pm
One thing I try to do, if I can afford it, is go to Negril, Jamaica, to sun myself. I think it is cheaper than many places to go, and I try to go in February when it is just warm enough. Read more »

Sunbathing techniques

February 15, 2013 — 9:49pm
God bless the sun. When the sun is available, I do the following. I lie under an umbrella, so that my body is in the shade. I only let my legs get hit by the sun. I also turn my back toward the sun so the back of my legs gets sun also. Well, it […] Read more »

Sea salt soak

February 11, 2013 — 9:48pm
Over the course of time I always found that my week at the beach in the sun and salt water helps the skin. In the winter, I can fake the sun, but the salt water was not transferable. I went to the local pet store and bought sea salt for fish tanks and added that […] Read more »

Holistic approach to psoriasis

February 6, 2013 — 6:51pm
I have suffered with pretty bad skin for about 17 years now. I tried everything and found some of the best remedies to be the natural alternatives: 1. After showering, a blend of jojoba oil, with lavender (10 drops), cedarwood (5 drops) and bergamot (3 drops) really helped to heal and prevent outbreaks. 2. Keep […] Read more »

Scuba diving

February 4, 2013 — 7:16pm
I have had psoriasis from the age of eight years old, an inherited thing passed down from my mum and dad. I do find that sun and sea water, etc., work. A new thing I have found is scuba diving 25 meters deep for 20 minutes, which helps to clear it (psoriasis), especially if I […] Read more »

Ultraviolet light

January 25, 2013 — 6:11pm
I have had psoriasis for about 14 years (since I was 5). I have tried just about anything you can think of. The only thing that has helped me has been the sun. The only downside is, I don’t want to look 60 when I’m 40 (from sun damage). But my dermatologist recommended UVB treatment, […] Read more »

When I was stationed in Camp Pendelton (California), my psoriasis on one of my elbows went away, but as soon as I was sent to North Carolina it came back. Then it went away again when I was in Iraq. So if you live in a desert try to keep your affected area in the […] Read more »

Lake soaking

January 7, 2013 — 6:37pm
Several years ago we bought a second home on a lake which has a high clay content. I’ve found since then that just soaking in the lake water for an hour or so every couple of days makes my psoriasis disappear. When summer ends, it comes back. My doctor says it’s probably the sun and/or […] Read more »

Sun and Alcohol

January 4, 2013 — 10:29pm
Once upon a time, I checked into a rehab center for alcohol dependency. One reason I drank so much was because I was so devastated by my skin condition. I had, at this time, psoriasis covering 20% – 25% of my body, especially on my legs and arms. I told a counselor there about the […] Read more »
