How to get rid of psoriasis on your face
Do you have facial psoriasis?
If you have psoriasis on your face, you may want to consider alternative options such as over-the-counter vitamins or HOCL Revitalizing Mist. There are always other options your dermatologist or primary care physician could offer you for this irritating and upsetting skin condition. Facial areas that develop plaque psoriasis on them are essentially overgrown skin cells that break out due to various conditions, usually gastroenterology related.
Signs of psoriasis:
- Patches or also sometimes called plaques
- Scaly thick skin
- Red areas that are flaky or patch-like
- Itchiness on the skin in certain areas
- Small or long patches of skin that are thicker
Using our PurClarity Revitalizing Mist daily is better than side effects from medications
Because psoriasis is a challenging and unsightly condition (especially on eyelids and face) you will always need treatment options. Trying different creams or oral medications that can be harder on the body than the reason for the condition causing psoriasis can be frustrating.
If you are highly concerned with side effects, like most of us are, stick to a more natural approach. Use supplements such as vitamins, omega oils, or inflammation-battling supplements at home, and a high-billion count probiotic to help balance gut flora. Over the years, dermatology research has determined that poor immune health can result in psoriasis outbreaks and can be hard to rid of.
When you have chronic gastrointestinal conditions, your skin will always be affected to some degree during certain inflammatory or flare times. Sometimes, these skin conditions will lead to peeling skin, rashes, bumps, and various other kinds of skin issues, including psoriasis plaques. There is no specific area on the body where psoriasis can appear.
Creams such as steroids can eventually lead to glaucoma or cataracts, according to clinical trial information. They could also lead to vision loss—rather frightening! Using the revitalizing spray is safe, effective, and non-toxic. It can be a game changer for anyone suffering from psoriasis outbreaks.
Why does psoriasis develop?
There are many different reasons. Not only do GI conditions cause it, but there can be a multitude of conditions, such as inflammatory diseases. Also, chronic eye infections could be the culprit for having eyelid psoriasis patches or other places like your forehead or cheeks.
Sometimes medications can cause gut issues that lead to gut damage, and psoriasis outbreaks can occur. Antibiotics can cause someone to develop a severely unbalanced gut flora (gut bacteria) can cause psoriasis to begin with. Also, anytime someone gets sick (the flu or a fleeting illness), there is the potential for getting rashes, psoriasis or other skin conditions to break out on any area of the skin.
Even if you've never experienced a severe psoriasis issue, most of us know that when we are sick many times, the skin may peel on our hands. It's the virus or infection leaving the body. This is similar to why these plaques appear on the skin in different areas. They can appear anywhere, other times, they may be localized near the area of infection. For example, eye infections may cause eyelid psoriasis patches.
Alternative options can steadily improve immune system health and skin
Using alternatives can be a better option, such as vitamins A, B complex, C, D, and E all have a way to help immune function and skin health. You may not need a vitamin tweak for every one of them or minerals.
Our HOCL PurClarity Revitalizing Mist spray can address current skin outbreaks and help to prevent them from happening. It is a good idea to always keep up with daily vitamins and work this mist into a skin health regimen. Also, supplements to improve your inflammation levels in the body are essential.
Supplements for lowering inflammation in the body:
- Fish oil or Omega 3
- Turmeric or Curcumin (from the root of the plant, curcumin can be higher potency than turmeric powder or in capsule form)
Follow a plan to keep your skin clean
Always keep your skin clean and only use fragrant-free skin cleaners. This means, any soap deemed for dermatologic-related issues (read all labels before purchasing). Many OTC brands are fine for these kinds of liquid or bar soaps. Always rinse with cool to warm water, and rinse thoroughly. And always, be gently patting your face and eye areas dry. You can use our HOCL PurClarity Revitalizing Mist over areas of the face, neck and shoulders several times a day for coverage for prevention or for existing psoriasis patches.
- Use warm water only, then cooler water mixed with skin-friendly soaps
- Pay your entire face dry with a soft cloth or towel
- Avoid any heavily scented products like make-up, scrubs, etc.
Make sure your face is free of:
- Various piercings on skin
- Heavy make-up
- Harsh body and facial scrubs
- Scented or perfume products
Try our HOCL Revitalizing Mist to help you manage psoriasis and other skin conditions.
When you use our revitalizing spray product, it can help you know you have a constant solution to battling any infections or inflammatory issues that lead to psoriasis on your face or other parts of your body. It can also help when an outbreak occurs from a larger issue such as a chronic gut problem, and help to heal the wound from the patches of dry, flaky, or irritating scaly skin that's on your face.
Testing for vitamin and mineral levels in the body
You should always keep various vitamins such as A, B complex, C, D, E—or a combination pill at home, as well as omega 3 supplements and other anti-inflammatory options like turmeric, MSM and quercetin on hand. Some might work better for you than others. Other supplements that are great for internal and external inflammation are zinc and iron, but these levels should be monitored as you don’t want to take too much of them as they can cause constipation—and other vitamin levels should also be checked to understand a dose regimen better.
Other than basic vitamin and mineral tests, your doctor may want to investigate further. Understanding blood type (could help determine foods to consume, better for you), an endoscopy to look at stomach and first part of the small intestine lining, a more in depth vitamin and mineral panel, white blood cell count and general blood panel to understand if you have a possible infection, C reactive protein (general inflammation marker), IgG panels (immunoglobulin and various other immune system markers). You may want to be tested for autoimmune diseases to understand why you are getting psoriasis outbreaks.
Keep track of when patches appear and other symptoms you may develop.
Logging symptoms of other ailments, not just skin conditions, are also quite helpful to pinpoint what testing doctors should consider doing. Remember, psoriasis can be a multisystem issue, and there is no one size fits all treatment protocol for it, as everyone's reasons for diagnosis of the skin condition may stem from one or many other health conditions and treatment could be completely different for everyone.
