Poll = "Does psoriasis effect your self-confidence?"
Hello all you beauties!
I have created another chart from the second poll that I had on my page. There were less votes for this one as I think that I had it on the page for less time overall. However, every single vote is important to me regardless of overall numbers.
I hope that this gives you piece of mind, to know that there are others out there who think and feel exactly the same.
I know that I am lacking in the confidence department, so don't feel disheartened that you are, most of us are!
I do want to pay special note to those awesome people out there that voted "I honestly don't care what people think" - I hope to be in your category one day. I hope we all make it there :)
Let me know if you have any ideas for poll questions. I have put the third one up now, so please go vote! :D
So, I know that Bio-oil is most commonly used as a product to help
with stretch marks and uneven skin tone, but I thought that if it would/could
help with that, then maybe it will help with the roughness of my skin that is
caused by psoriasis. I also have un-even skin tone where the areas of psoriasis
are redder than my very pale skin. When an area of psoriasis starts to get
better, I also end up with a silver tinted skin patch which looks the same as a
scar; therefore, I decided to see what bio-oil does to my skin condition and
whether or not it helped. Info: You can buy Bio-Oil in most places. I found this specific one
from Costco but I am sure that they are everywhere (Boots/Tesco/Superdrug) or
somewhere online. A description of their product that they have online: “Bio‑Oil is a specialist
skincare oil that helps improve the appearance of scars, stretch marks and
uneven skin tone. It is also effective for ageing and dehydrated skin. Bio‑Oil
has won 167 skincare awards and has become …
So one of the latest products that I have been using is the Aveeno Cream with Colloidal Oatmeal. It is for dry and sensitive skin (two words that scream the definition of psoriasis). It does say on the bottle "suitable for adults and babies from 3 months who may be prone to eczema" Helloskin summarise the product; This non-greasy cream from Aveeno, formulated with colloidal oatmeal, helps prevent water loss from your skin by rebuilding the skin’s natural barrier. Aveeno Moisturising Cream has a fast absorption time that makes it convenient for use during the day.
Aveeno Cream helps soothe and hydrate dry skin and is suitable for every part of the body. It contains refined oatmeal that is proven to rebuild the natural skin barrier and is free from parabens. The active colloidal oatmeal in Aveeno Moisturising Cream acts as a moisturiser for dry and sensitive skin with effect for 24 hours. My routine; Usually for these type of cream I will just use it all over twice a day…
It's cold in England at the moment (shock😂), even my family members with "normal" skin are finding that theirs is dry. I've stuck to the same products recently, and am in need of a switch up...
The beautiful people at HelloSkin contacted me, and asked if I would test some psoriasis products for them. I chose the Epaderm Ointment as I have previously used the Epaderm Cream; with great results!
I personally feel that ointments are better than moisturisers when it comes to treating my psoriasis. Normally, if my skin is tolerable, I don't use them as much because of their greasy-ness. When my skin flares up badly, I will use an ointment...always. I was drawn to this ointment because of the different ways you can use it...which i have put below...
So where is my Psoriasis bad right now?! Well I used this awesome form that I found on twitter, from Psoriasis Awareness, to show you guys where I am suffering at the moment and where I will be using the ointment:
