Many people these days have different skin conditions to treat, however differentiating and understanding each condition is not always easy. Psoriasis is a major skin condition that affects an estimated 7.5 million Americans according to the National Psoriasis Foundation. Having any skin condition is not only uncomfortable but very stressful.
Psoriasis is a chronic autoimmune disease that appears on the skin. There are 5 different types of psoriasis listed as: plaque, guttate, inverse, pustular & erythrodermic. The most common form of psoriasis is plaque. The usual symptoms of this type Psoriasis are usually raised red patches or lesions which are covered with a silvery white buildup of dead skin cells. This condition can appear anywhere on the body, but is not contagious.
Prevention is a major aspect of treatment. Psoriasis triggers can be different for each individual however, there are some more common or known triggers. The first known trigger is stress. Stress can actually activate a first time flare up or aggravate an existing condition. The second known trigger is injury to the skin. For example: vaccinations, sunburns and even scratches on the skin can trigger a reaction. Medication can also be a big trigger and can easily be disregarded when contemplating trigger factors. Some of the many different medications that have been found to trigger a reaction are: Lithium, Antimalarials, Inderal, Quinidine and Indomethacin.
Other known triggers such as weather, diet, and allergies can play a big role in a Psoriasis flare up. Although there is no known cure for psoriasis, there are ways to alleviate symptoms.
Treatments will generally consist of topical or internal solutions. As the severity of each case and treatment options will vary from one person to the next, it is recommended that each individual consults with a licensed physician for professional opinion before use of any product.
It is also important to understand that many times an individual will go through various products before they find one that best suits them. You can find products on our site ranging from cleansers to shampoo and even body products. Some of those include Therapeutics Psorent Topical by Neostrata and Plasmalg Marine Gel by Thalgo. We hope after this read you’ll understand this condition better. We also want you to know we are always here to help and wish you all the best on the road to healing!
Winter… It comes around every year and brings us those windy, cold, and rainy days. As your skin type is affected by these weather changes, so are your lips. Your lips can easily become dry, cracked and even more sensitive during this time. It is important to remember to tend to them just as you would your normal skin care regimen around these seasonal changes.
You can easily prevent your lips from drying by following a simple set of steps. First exfoliate your lips about one to two times a week. This will remove the dry, rough skin sitting on the surface of your lips and make room for soft lips. A lip scrub that is great for the lips is Philosophy’s Kiss Me Exfoliating Lip Scrub. Then make sure everyday to apply some kind of a treatment or conditioner. It doesn’t matter if it is just a hydrating lip balm, lip gloss or actual lip treatment product. Most of these items will have ingredients in them to not only prevent damage but to maintain lip health and nourish them. For already damaged lips we suggest NUXE Reve de Miel Ultra Nourishing Lip Balm; made from natural ingredients with a delicious taste of honey and grapefruit. With that said, everyone should be able to find a product specific to keeping your lips smooth, moisturized and lively!
Who says after the season’s change, that you can’t glisten as golden as the sun? We might lose a bit of light at the end of each day but we can remain bright and gain the appearance of warmth. Allow me to introduce a little helper into your beauty regimen called Hampton Sun.

On top of our daily stresses, women have crazy hormones which contribute to breakouts. Instead of just crossing your fingers and hoping for a quick fix, do something beneficial for your face!
Quickly hide your imperfections and zap the pesky bacteria that causes your skin to become irritated. There are a couple of great products that not only cover up, but will treat the area as well. Within some of these products you may find Green Tea leaf Extract which has anti-inflammatory benefits or Willow Bark Extract for anti-microbial benefits. Another ingredient you may see is Bisbolol which is used to help soothe your skin. Two great products to take a look at are the Acne Treatment Concealer by Murad and the Zap & Hide Blemish Concealer by Jane Iredale. The best part is that both of these are so easy to toss into your purse for on-the-go use! Go grab one and arm yourself against blemishes.
Sun protection plays a major role in the way that our skin ages! While your cabinets and purse may be stocked with different protection agents, the most common mistake is the small areas you may miss. The following is a list of your forgotten areas and where you need to apply your SPF.
1) Your Ears: A very common area that is missed. While protection of your face is one of the most important areas, people often skip out on their ears. This leaves room to draw attention from the sun to that area and the end result is almost always a burn.
2) Your lovely lips: We understand that most face products would not be suitable for the lips or feel so great but you can find your usual chapstick or lip products with SPF. Who wants peeling, uncomfortable lips anyways?
3) The Underdog Underarms: Another common area that most skip, whether it be with a lotion or even more the SPF mists. We already use deodorant in those areas and also think that it is an area the sun won’t shine so it is easily a missed area.
4) Your Feet: The legs are always a focus point for application however most people stop at the feet. You end up with tan lines from your flip flops and that is just not cute.
5) Your Designated Part Line: Don’t forget that your scalp can also burn and leave you a victim of peeling, itchy head. The easiest fix would be an SPF mist that you can just spray & play with the protection you need.
Now that you have a quick reminder, be sure it get the proper sun protection you need during these fun warm days!
