Managing Psoriasis: Gentle Skincare Solutions with sebamed
Living with psoriasis can be challenging, but with the right skincare routine, you can effectively manage its symptoms and promote skin health.
In this article, we will look at what happens to the skin to cause the condition, and explore ways that sebamed's specialised products can support your treatment.
Psoriasis at a microscopic glance
Psoriasis occurs when skin cells are replaced quicker than usual. New skin cells are produced at the deepest layer of the skin - the hypodermis - and gradually move up through the skin layers to the epidermis, the surface of the skin.
Once reached, the skin cells begin to die, which results in flaking. This whole process takes place approximately every 4 weeks.
But for people with Psoriasis, this process can occur much faster, with some people experiencing it over a few days. This means skin cells are unable to mature completely and often results in a build-up on the epidermis layer.
This build-up can cause the skin to become flaky and form rough, crusty patches. They normally appear on the elbows, knees and scalp but can appear anywhere on the body.
Psoriasis is NOT contagious
You cannot catch Psoriasis from a person. Often the condition occurs due to various reasons including:
- Injury to the skin
