Auto-Immunity & Psoriasis

Psoriasis is an autoimmune disease, meaning that part of the body’s immune system has become overactive and attacks normal tissues in the body. It will not help you to simply buy skincare and hope for healing. To truly heal psoriasis, consult with your doctor knowing that your treatment must be three-fold, in line with the following pillars:

Gentle Psoriasis-Friendly Skincare

Psoriasis isn't contagious, but Awareness is!

Psoriasis is a skin disease that causes rashes with itchy and scaly patches. It’s a common, long-term (chronic) disease. The condition seems to flare for a number of weeks before subsiding. Dhana aims to help you alleviate the irritation of symptoms. 

I used to have horribly itchy psoriasis on my scalp. With the use of Align-mint peppermint & tea-tree shampoo bar, it’s all disappeared! – Cecile L.

Natural Treatment Options:

  • Rather than lotion, that pulls moisture from your skin, consider using an all-natural vegetable oil. A gentle massage of coconut oil into affected areas will enhance a rich hydrated sensation. Repeat up to twice daily.
  • Products like a Pure & Pretty Soap designed for baby-soft and sensitive skin are ideal for psoriasis sufferers.
  • Other natural supplements include magnesium found in eating nuts and soaking in bath salts.
  • If you live close to the ocean, consider taking a dip. 
  • Using essential oils? Be sure to dilute them to avoid unwanted irritation. Alone or blended, we recommend lavender, clove, tea tree, peppermint and citrus essential oils for their cleansing and antiseptic qualities.
