When the skin is acidic - alkaline care for psoriasis

Millions of people suffer from psoriasis. The chronic inflammatory, non-contagious autoimmune disease is manifested by skin problems that can seriously affect the quality of life. The reason: the body's own immune defences of those affected is out of balance, resulting in permanent inflammation and excessive skin cell renewal. This can be seen locally or over a large area in the form of obvious scales and in the formation of yellowish skin crusts.

The most common form is known as psoriasis vulgaris, with clearly delimited areas of reddened skin covered with silvery white scales. Particularly affected areas are usually the scalp and areas around the ears, the elbow, knee and the gluteal fold.

No cure, but significant relief

Psoriasis occurs in recurrent attacks. In spite of medical progress it cannot be completely cured but it certainly can be alleviated significantly. The therapeutic measures - whether using conventional medicine or alternative medicine - are varied, and individuals must find the most suitable individual form of treatment for them with the help of their doctors / naturopaths. In addition to topical treatment with creams, ointments, baths and radiation, there are other treatment options which have a positive impact on the excessive immune response of the body. Alkaline skin care can also be used to improve the appearance of the skin.

Alkaline skin care - an important element in therapy

Alkaline skin care combats the excessive acidity of the skin which is increasingly pervasive in our modern civilisation. The reasons for this include poor nutrition and especially an excess of alcohol, meat and sugar. Physical inactivity, anxiety and stress and physical overwork often have a negative impact as well. The visible effects of these stresses can be skin problems and eczema.

In the case of pre-existing skin problems, such as in the case of psoriasis, a counterbalance in the form of alkaline skin care products that neutralise this acidity, so to speak, and soothe the damaged epidermis, is all the more important.

SIRIDERMA alkaline creams, baths and washes are important building blocks of alkaline skin care. If you suffer from psoriasis, you can benefit from this gentle method of therapy-supporting care. Children with problem skin also often react very positively to alkaline care. Alkaline baths in particular promote the natural acid / alkaline balance of the skin.
