Psoriasis cannot be infected

Psoriasis is a disease which, because of too low social awareness, often causes exclusion. Meanwhile, psoriasis is not contagious and does not pose a threat to the environment of a sick person, so it should not cause fear or be a reason for rejection. Unfortunately, this is still happening very often, which is why I think it is worth getting to know her better and understand how important our support is for people who are struggling with it. Today on my blog about what psoriasis actually is, how it manifests itself and who it concerns.
Psoriasis, once confused with leprosy, nowadays considered an autoimmune disease, is a chronic disease characterized by periods of remission followed by exacerbations of the disease. Due to the fact that there are several types of this disease, the course can be very diverse and, unfortunately, if it manifests itself, it remains with the patient for life.

Psoriasis is one of the most common skin conditions with a typical symptom of scaly patches. It can affect anyone, but much more often than children suffer from adults, and it affects both women and men. Unfortunately, it is a disease that not only affects the patient's external appearance, but also very difficult his daily functioning, and what is worse is also the cause of mental disorders.

Too fast and bad

The skin of a healthy person needs about 28 days to regenerate, in people with psoriasis, the skin cells divide about 7 times faster, i.e. the process of their complete replacement takes about 4 days. It is excessive production of the epidermis that leads to the formation of lesions in people affected by psoriasis.

What's behind it?

Unfortunately, it is still difficult to answer this question unambiguously, genes and the immune system are blamed here, which for unknown reasons, instead of protecting us, turns against us, and chronic inflammation arises within the skin. There are also a number of factors that trigger psoriasis, increase its symptoms, or accelerate its recurrence. Belong to them:

  • Infections, streptococcal infections are the most dangerous, but other bacteria, viruses and fungi can also trigger it. Particular attention should be paid to throat, ear and bronchial infections. These types of infections can lead to the first signs of drip psoriasis, most often diagnosed in children.
  • Injuries, very often the symptoms of psoriasis appear or intensify as a result of mechanical damage to the skin, then we are talking about the Koebner phenomenon.
  • Stress is also recognized as a factor that can activate psoriasis, cause its first symptoms, aggravate existing or reduce remission.
  • Drugs, it happens that psoriasis increases as a result of taking certain medications, e.g. used to treat depression (containing lithium carbonate), beta-blockers, improper treatment with corticosteroids, and even some of the nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs.

It also happens that psoriasis is caused, accelerated by relapse or exacerbation of symptoms by other factors, e.g. hormonal disorders, poor diet, excessive alcohol consumption or smoking.

The skin condition also changes with the changing seasons. In the winter, when we stay in heated rooms, the skin dries faster and the symptoms of psoriasis get worse, while in the summer, when the skin has more contact with the sun, the lesions decrease and sometimes even completely disappear.

Different types, different symptoms

Plaque psoriasis is most common, red plaques appearing on the skin, covered with white scales and clearly demarcated lesions from healthy skin. Plaques often occur symmetrically, and the most characteristic places where they appear are knees, elbows, the sacrum and the scalp. Patients also often complain of persistent itching, skin pruritus in places where lesions appear. In turn, drip psoriasis takes the form of small red, scaly, drop-like lesions that are most commonly located on the torso, limbs, and top of the head. This type of psoriasis is most common in children and adolescents. Pustular psoriasis is characterized by the appearance of small pustules filled with pus very often surrounded by erythema. Changes can occur all over the body, but most often they occur on the limbs. Inverted psoriasis occurs in the form of smooth red patches that appear mainly in the folds and folds of the skin, e.g. in the bends of the elbows, under the knees, under the breasts or in the groin. The affected skin is very delicate and prone to irritation, which is why inflammation often occurs in this form of the disease. Nail psoriasis, on the other hand, usually occurs with another type of psoriasis, although of course there are also cases when it is its only form. Patients notice indentations on the nails and psoriatic papules located under the plate and softened horn masses. The nails turn yellow or white, do not adhere to the ground, delaminate, and fall off in the acute course of the disease. The most severe form of psoriasis is psoriatic erythroderma. The changes occur all over the body, they are accompanied by persistent itching and pain, and the affected skin can go down with entire patches. The disease can be life-threatening, fortunately it is very rare.

How to care for sick skin?

Because the causes of the disease have not been fully understood, there is no drug that can cure psoriasis. The therapy is therefore only symptomatic and its task is to reduce the discomfort. Psoriasis treatment is also appropriate skin care, which, in combination with the preparations recommended by the doctor, can extend the period of remission. It is very important to use cosmetics designed for sensitive skin. It is necessary to constantly clean it, moisturize it and soothe irritation and itching. Cosmetics containing light ichthyol are often recommended, they help regulate the multiplication of skin cells and significantly reduce irritation, relieve itching, and thanks to their antibacterial and antiviral properties reduce the risk of infection. For skin care of people suffering from psoriasis, it is also recommended to use emollients that effectively protect the skin against water loss. It is also extremely important to use preparations that gently exfoliate the epidermis, e.g. those containing urea are recommended. It is absolutely necessary to give up soaps and replace them with foams, gels or emulsions without soap specially formulated for delicate skin. Cosmetics containing allergenic fragrances and dyes that may further irritate and dry the skin are also unsuitable. It should also be remembered that suffering from psoriasis, we can not afford to give up proper care, even during remission. If we properly care for our skin and follow the doctor's recommendations, we will significantly extend the asymptomatic period of the disease and make its recurrence more gentle.

In the treatment of psoriasis, phototherapy is also very often used, benefiting from the beneficial effects of UVA and UVB radiation. However, it should be remembered that not everyone can undergo this form of treatment, so it is very important that the doctor decides about it, who will also adapt the treatments to the individual needs of the patient and will constantly monitor the progress of treatment. In severe cases of psoriasis, it may be necessary to undergo biological therapy.

Psoriasis, although not infectious disease, unfortunately very often, is the cause of embarrassment and withdrawal from the lives of those affected. It happens that it leads to severe depression, which unfortunately leads to the resignation from treatment, intensifies the symptoms of the disease and threatens the patient's life. That is why it is very important not only to quickly start proper treatment, but also to spread information about psoriasis so that people in the patient's immediate environment can support him and help him go through a hard time when the symptoms of the disease are worse.

How to improve digestion?

More and more people suffer from digestive system diseases, mainly they suffer from indigestion, heartburn, stomach aches, constipation and diarrhea. Most often, the cause of these ailments is a bad diet, all you have to do is eat something heavy so that our digestive system refuses to obey us. It is therefore worth getting to know and include in the diet food products that can alleviate and even prevent digestive problems.

1. Fermented products

Such as yogurt, kefir, buttermilk, pickled cucumbers, cabbage and beets contain a lot of beneficial bacteria - probiotics. They beneficially change the composition of the intestinal flora, inhibit the growth of harmful bacteria, support digestion, the immune system and increase resistance to infection. Probiotics are also helpful in combating diarrhea caused by antibiotic therapy, relieve symptoms of indigestion, constipation, bloating and effectively support therapy in irritable bowel syndrome.

2. Whole grain products

There are many reasons why whole grains should be eaten. One of them is probably that the grains are an excellent source of insoluble fiber, thanks to which intestinal motility improves, constipation and unpleasant symptoms associated with hemorrhoids disappear faster. Insoluble dietary fiber is also great at cleansing the body of toxins and by-products of metabolism, and prevents colon cancer. The sources of fiber are primarily whole grains, such as pasta, bread, brown rice, seeds, nuts, as well as zucchini, celery, onions, broccoli, carrots, cucumbers, raisins, grapes and dark green leafy vegetables.

3. Oatmeal

It's a rich source of water-soluble fiber, that's why when added to water or milk they turn into a slurry. Products containing soluble fiber are recommended for anyone who has a problem with irregular bowel movements. We are talking about both constipation and diarrhea, fiber perfectly affects the work of the digestive system, cleanses the intestines and restores regularity of bowel movements. It is also perfect for people who want to lose a few unnecessary kilograms, because fiber swelling under the influence of water keeps the feeling of satiety for a long time. In addition, fiber regulates blood cholesterol levels, thereby reducing the risk of cardiovascular disease. In addition to oatmeal, you'll also find it in oatmeal, peas, lentils, apples, strawberries, oranges, beans, cucumbers, nuts and flax seeds.

4. Fish

Fish is a healthy addition to any diet. It is believed that they are rich in protein valuable for our body, and contained in fish such as salmon, tuna or mackerel omega-3 fatty acids, protect against cardiovascular diseases, reduce the level of triglycerides in the body, slow down the accumulation of atherosclerotic plaques in blood vessels and regulate blood pressure. In addition, eating fish has a beneficial effect on the state of the large intestine, protecting it against inflammation and cancer.

5. Ginger

Ginger is great at alleviating stomach problems. It is widely used as a natural remedy in the treatment of nausea and diarrhea. He is also very good at eliminating the symptoms of motion sickness and reducing nausea and vomiting caused by pregnancy and chemotherapy.

Liposomal vitamin c for skin

Vitamin C is a wonderful elixir for our skin, thanks to which we completely use available collagens and it provides us with action against the harmful effects of external and available radicals. Increasingly, therefore, it is a component of skin care cosmetics that are supposed to take care of the appearance and condition of the skin. It is worth knowing, however, that not every vitamin C is able to block the protective barrier of the epidermis and get into the dermis. Today on the blog about what form of vitamin C is best for the skin.

The skin is the organ most exposed to harmful external effects and available radicals, and as a result also to oxidative stress. Of course, in our body naturally use antioxidants that can eliminate the action of available radicals. Unfortunately, with age, as well as the results of irritation, connections and inflammation, their quantity decreases significantly. The internal balance is maintained and free radicals, which are available as an advantage over antioxidants, multiply very quickly. We can clearly see how the appearance of our skin changes, it becomes gray, rough, thin, dry, loses firmness and action, and wrinkles and discoloration appear on its surface. That is why it is very important to supplement the missing antioxidants.

What are antioxidants?

Antioxidants are chemical compounds that protect our body against the harmful effects of available radicals. To understand how they do it, it's worth remembering what free radicals are.

Free radicals are atoms that have one or more "unpaired" electrons. Moving very quickly around our organization, we quickly enter into reactions, and their goal is to "appropriate" themselves. By doing so, they damage, inter alia, cell membranes and DNA, as well as available to adverse changes in protein, fat and carbohydrate molecules. What's worse, these changes are becoming more and more extensive with the passage of time, and the body attacked by free radicals has less and less power to defend itself. To stop the destructive effects of available radicals, you need antioxidants.

Vitamin C in the fight against free radicals

Vitamin C is one of the very strong and well known antioxidants. What's more, it is an antioxidant that has special significance for our skin, effectively protecting it from the effects of harmful external factors and free radicals. Therefore, it is very important not only to provide vitamin C through a proper diet and oral supplementation, but also topically to the skin.

Vitamin C encapsulated in a liposome

Vitamin C is a real elixir of youth so it is no wonder that it is an ingredient in many popular cosmetics. Unfortunately, however, as not everyone knows, most locally used preparations with vitamin C are characterized by high instability and in contact with the external environment they oxidize and lose their properties very quickly. The solution to this problem is the use of liposomal vitamin C. Advanced technology has allowed the creation of precisely designed liposomes - microscopic homogeneous vesicles that have become the highest quality carriers, among others for vitamin C. Thanks to it, it is not only protected against harmful factors, but also more stable and much easier to absorb. Liposomes allow vitamin C to get inside the cells so that it can start working there.

What can vitamin C do for our skin?

Evens out the color

Vitamin C is an effective remedy in the fight against discoloration, which very often stays with us as an unwanted souvenir after a sunny holiday. When the beautiful tan comes off our face, there are unsightly spots that disfigure us and, unfortunately, also age very much. Applied topically, it significantly reduces their visibility, gently exfoliates the skin, accelerates regeneration and improves hydration. Thanks to it, the skin tone is even and we can enjoy its beautiful, radiant look.

Firms the skin

It makes the skin elastic and smoother, because it not only effectively "sweeps" free radicals and protects the skin against the harmful effects of UV radiation, but also is necessary in the production of collagen fibers. It is worth recalling that collagen is a protein with very high tensile strength. In our body it performs many very important functions and, among other things, it is also responsible for maintaining adequate flexibility, firmness and smoothing the skin. Unfortunately, over time, collagen production decreases, so its amount in our body gradually decreases - we are beginning to grow old. It is then that our skin loses its firmness, elasticity, becomes thinner, more easily subjected to the law of gravity, and on its surface wrinkles and furrows are visible. However, if we provide it with the right doses of vitamin C, it will be much easier for it to produce adequate amounts of collagen, and its fibers will be much stronger.

Reduces the visibility of wrinkles

Topically applied liposomal vitamin C is also an effective anti-aging cosmetic. As a very strong antioxidant, it can effectively "stop time" and not only reduce the visibility of already existing small wrinkles, but also significantly delay the appearance of new ones. Remember also that vitamin C can regenerate vitamin E, which is very important for our skin and is often called "vitamin of youth", and acting together can really do a lot of good for our skin - clearly improve its condition and effectively delay the effects of aging.

Relieves inflammation

Therefore, it works great as a preparation accelerating the healing of wounds and burns, as well as a great way to fight acne. Vitamin C reduces the action of free radicals, which are often responsible for the formation of purulent skin lesions, has anti-inflammatory and soothing effects, improving the skin condition very quickly. However, this is not the end of vitamin C, thanks to its properties, regulates sebaceous glands, accelerates skin regeneration, improves the healing of lesions and, which is very important, reduces the risk of acne scars.

How to use liposomal vitamin C?

Products available on the market with liposomal vitamin C are oral preparations in the form of liposomal gel. It is worth taking them at least once a day to take care of the condition, firmness and color of our skin "from the inside".

They can also be used by applying the preparation directly to the face. To get a better effect before applying, it is worth making steam bath, thanks to it we will expand pores, cleanse the skin of excess sebum and impurities, and facilitate the penetration of vitamin C into the deeper layers of the skin. Remember to wash your face with warm water after 10-15 minutes and apply a skincare cream adapted to your skin type. You can also add a small amount of liposomal vitamin C to your home masks and peels.

By applying liposomal vitamin C orally and / or topically to the skin after a few weeks you will be convinced of its effectiveness and you will notice the first positive effects of such treatment. However, it should be remembered that each skin can react to it differently, so it is always worth doing the test beforehand and checking if there was an allergic reaction.

We close the capillaries

Commonly called spider veins, less known as telangiectasias, are dilated tiny blood vessels that are shallow under the skin. That's why, when they appear, you can easily see them on its surface.

Where do they occur most often?

In fact, spiders can appear anywhere, but most often they appear on the legs and face. Initially, there are usually very few of them, which is why we often do not even pay attention to them, but over time the changes intensify, and the vessels begin to resemble a dense spider's web. 

Capillaries appearing on the face may be a sign of allergy or a symptom of rosacea, on the legs, in turn, may be a sign of venous circulation disorders. As you can see, the problem can be much more serious, so if you have noticed dilated capillaries on your body, you should not underestimate them. It is best if you consult a specialist, especially if a lot of them appeared in a fairly short time.

Who is affected?

Spiders can form under the influence of various factors, both internal and external. When the mechanism of action of small blood vessels is disturbed for some reason, their permanent expansion occurs. It is then that we can easily see them on the surface of our skin. This condition affects both men and women, but the bad news for women is that they occur more often. 

One of the main factors favoring the occurrence of spider veins is age. When the aging process accelerates, the skin becomes thinner and the vessels weak and inflexible. All this means that, unfortunately, they do not work as efficiently as in the case of young people and it is much easier for them to expand permanently. 

The problem may also appear as a result of hormonal disorders. Therefore, telangiectasias are often the bane of women after pregnancy and childbirth, during puberty, menopause, or those using hormonal contraception. 

Our lifestyle and diet are also important. The problem very often arises or intensifies if we are in favor of strong coffee, tea or spicy dishes, not to mention alcohol and cigarettes, which have a very adverse effect on the condition of our blood vessels. They are also not conducive to a sedentary lifestyle or standing too long in one position. It also happens that the predisposition to the formation of spiders we inherit from our loved ones. So if you noticed visible networks of dilated capillaries in someone close to you, you should especially take care of your skin and not expose it to harmful factors, both internal and external.

What does vascular skin dislike?

As I have already mentioned, vascular skin does not like spicy and hot dishes and drinks. It also does not tolerate cigarettes, coffee and alcohol. It also tolerates sudden changes in temperature very badly, so do not expose it to sunlight and try to avoid being in the cold. 

Stress and other strong emotions also have an adverse effect on delicate skin with capillaries. All these factors cause the blood vessels to expand, which would normally return to their original size soon, but unfortunately this is disturbed in the case of vascular skin. Therefore, as a result, spiders appear on the skin.

How to care for capillaries?

Capillary skin is usually also sensitive skin, which requires special care and selection of appropriate cosmetics. It is very important that they do not cause additional irritation. Therefore, put aside soap, artificially colored, intensely fragrant and alcohol-containing cosmetics that not only dry, but also very often cause allergies and destroy the protective layer of the skin. 

It is very important that the skin is thoroughly cleansed every day, dead epidermis, remains of colored cosmetics and dust will unfortunately irritate and weaken it. The best solution is micellar fluid instead of tap water. 

Cosmetics for this type of skin should have a soothing effect, strengthen blood vessels and protect it against the effects of wind, frost and UV radiation. It is good if they contain, among others, vitamin C, strengthening the walls of blood vessels, decreasing and sealing capillaries, vitamin K, soothing and smoothing the vitamin E as well as allantoin, panthenol, aloe, chestnut extract and evening primrose oil.

We close the vessels

If spider veins has already appeared on your skin it's worth thinking about the possibilities that aesthetic medicine gives us. At REVIVE CLINIC ™, among a wide range of treatments, you will also find effective methods of closing blood vessels.

Forever Young BBL Phototherapy has very good effects. During the procedure, the BBL emits short pulses of intense light, which, penetrating through the skin, are absorbed by hemoglobin in the blood vessels. The energy transformed into heat, released from light, allows for precise elimination of dilated capillaries and restores the skin's natural color. Immediately after the procedure, we may feel a burning sensation, and the skin may be slightly pink, fortunately, these symptoms disappear quite quickly, and a large part of the small vessels without blood will cease to be visible almost immediately. 

The number of treatments that will be needed is always decided by the specialist who, assessing the condition of the skin and observing the effects of the treatment, will adapt the therapy to your needs and the achievable effects. It is also very important to strictly follow the care recommendations that you receive after the BBL therapy.
