Latterly, due to the modern way of living, there has been recorded a considerable increase in skin autoimmune diseases. Psoriasis, veal skin and various types of dermatitis have become common occurrences in our work nowadays.
What I have noticed is that people with milder dispositions are usually prone to skin diseases due to increased levels of stress. So far in my career, I have never met insensitive individuals suffering from skin diseases.
This means that we have to see life in a different light. We have to find a way through and outlets that can lead us to a stress-free life on a daily basis.
However, apart from stress, we can do a lot of things with our skin in order to improve both its look and its condition.
A skin suffering from psoriasis shows signs of hyperkeratosis on some areas, such as crooking surfaces, angles on skin, the scalp contour etc.
Our skin condition and mainly the skin condition of those with psoriasis depends a lot on our disposition and psychological situation. Individuals suffering from psoriasis are usually sensitive people. Psoriasis is not contagious and it is not a disease because there are usually no other symptoms apart from skin hyperkeratosis. It is rather a sign that the body has lost its balance.
RECOVERING THE LOST BALANCE
The science of beauty aims to give the person with psoriasis a healthy skin, something which is both an easy and difficult task at the same time. It is an easy task because with the right care on a daily basis problems are eliminated and skin regains its flawless look. It is a difficult task because the individual has to be tireless when it comes to skin care.
Sea products rich in trace elements penetrate the blood circulation making skin healthy again. Penetration is achieved easily with osmosis without the need of technology. They create isotonic and hypertonic dilutions, with regard to blood serum, and in this way they reach blood circulation. This is cellular healing diet. In addition, the PH they create on skin does not allow hyperkeratosis and skin gradually becomes normal.
Dead Sea products are the most effective. Salt and mud from the Dead Sea contain more trace elements and salts thus enriching cells and in this way skin cells and the whole body regain their health. These are products that work both at the level of cells and that of the whole body.
Acids such as glycolic and lactic facilitate exfoliation and skin smoothing. These products work on the specific areas.
Anti-oxidants fight free radicals that have been increased considerably because of psoriasis. By receiving and utilizing anti-oxidants, cells recover their normal function. They are products that work at the level of cells. Vitamin A has great anti-oxidant properties and it is also necessary thanks to its photo-protective activity.
If essential oils that boost the action of salts and mud are added to the treatment, then the positive results will be multiplied. Herbs included in the treatment products are the following: aloe, cleavers, sorrel, bitter-sweet, clover, marigold, arnica, sage and rosemary. With regard to those of the above that are drinkable, it is best to make and brew a mixture every day.
TREATMENT AT HOME
Cleansing of face, scalp contour and body skin every morning and night using the special cleansing product.
Day cream with salts and mud for protection and hydration. Body lotion appropriate for the whole body. We use products that are compatible with the condition of our skin. This is our job here at FIGURA HELENA beauty salon. Our experience has taught us how to identify and recognise the needs of your skin as soon as we see it under our lens.
Nourishment for the night time.
After our bath, we apply a serum on the face followed by the night cream, always taking into account what suits our needs. The same applies to our body. We can benefit from the night time during which cell repair takes place. This is an opportunity to supply our body and skin with valuable elements that will be utilized during the night process of skin (and other) cell repair.
TREATMENT AT THE BEAUTY SALON
We ensure that our skin stays hydrated. A well-hydrated skin is strong and can withstand any bad external conditions, such as cold, heat, drought, northern winds, exposure to the sun etc.
We hydrate regularly and have treatments with anti-oxidants, minerals and trace elements in order to boost skin defence and give cells much needed nutrients so that they function normally.
When skin is healthy, then whatever there is underneath it, it is healthy too. Do not forget that skin is the largest in size, surface and weight organ of the human body. It covers all organs and all tissues and expresses the breathing of the whole body.
We have to treat it with respect. We have to know its needs and protect, hydrate and nourish it properly.
Treatments carried out by experienced beauticians in beauty salons using acids and Dead Sea products, vitamins and essential oils, can offer full recovery to a skin such as this.
What we eat is very important with regard to our health. Nature has provided all the “medicines” that can keep us healthy and nourished. All vegetables and fruits are beneficial for both skin and body health. Turmeric is a great anti-oxidant and can be added to all cooked food and tea. Dark-coloured vegetables and fruits, such as beetroot, berries, cow berries, cranberries, blackberries etc. are particularly important. The above contain proanthocyanidins and anthocyanidins which participate in collagen composition and in addition they make skin stronger against sun exposure. On a daily basis, we drink more water and green tea with turmeric, we avoid sugar and white flour products, we cut the consumption of processed food and we aim to be closer to nature.
This is a recipe for life and well-being suitable for everyone. Especially for those with psoriasis, eczema or other autoimmune skin diseases, this is a saving recipe. All it takes is to believe in it and adopt it.
It is good to think that you are special people. You just have sensitivities manifested on your skin. From the one hand, it seems bad to suffer from psoriasis, but on the other it is good because there are worse autoimmune conditions. With patience and more time dedicated to your personal care, with the help and treatment provided by our experienced beauticians, you can rectify your problem.
The combination of a daily personal care by you, of a professional care provided by us and the right diet on a daily basis that you will adopt following the instructions of our dietician will result in curing your psoriasis.
