Psoriasis is a long-term skin rash that can be managed with Essential Oils which is confirmed by Markus MacGillr in latest MNT article. Being in the business of promoting skin care and cosmetic products with herbal natural ingredients, Herbally Radiant agrees with the Markus MacGillr that effective alternative treatments are available to deal with psoriasis condition. All Herbally Radiant formulations contain powerful Essential Oils. These act as preservatives and enhance the effect of other natural ingredients in the beauty formulations.
Psoriasis is an autoimmune disease. The immune system attacks the body's own cells in the skin in the same way that it would attack foreign bodies. People with psoriasis have a rapid buildup of skin cells that form inflammatory papules and plaques with silver-colored "scales" on the surface of the skin. These lesions can also be: Itchy, Dry, Red and Painful.
Psoriasis shows in different forms among different people. Psoriatic plaques can be in specific places – at skin folds, palms of the hands, or soles of the feet, while others might have it on whole body. It comes and goes over time; it appears gradually, then goes away for a time before returning again. The flare-ups can come and go in relation to triggers.
Essential Oils used in Herbally Radiant products are natural oils obtained from plants through a process of distillation. These are volatile oils, and can be readily vaporized and then condensed in the process of distillation.
There are nearly 300 types of Essential Oils mixed in different formulations. Herbally Radiant uses mainly Chamomile, Lavender, Lemon, Rosemary, Tea Tree, Grapefruit, Primrose as well as a combination of complementary oils.
Some standard medical treatments for psoriasis are derived from plants, and Essential oils carry powerful curative properties. For example, Tea Tree oil is widely used in nonprescription skin care products. It has wonderful antiseptic properties, and Herbally Radiant uses it effectively in its CLEAN range of products prepared especially for acne or similar skin problems.
Similarly, many Herbally Radiant formulations are Aloe Vera based. It is a gel-like substance from the aloe plant and can be applied to skin affected by psoriasis. Creams containing aloe vera may have some effect on symptoms such as redness and itching.
Physicians and dermatologists commonly prescribe methotrexate, retinoids such as acittretin and isotreinoin, cyclosporine and other strong medicines. But these have strong side effects: these suppress the natural immune system, and render delicate skin vulnerable to further infections.
There is no specific medicine for psoriasis, which is attributed to factors like genetics, infections, drugs like beta blockers, nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, too much sun exposure, alcohol intake, smoking or emotional stress. Physicians can try to bring the symptoms under control with strong medicines which trigger further side effects. There are excellent herbal formulations that can help control it and gradually eliminate it with their long term use.
