Don't forget to keep your skin reasonably moist as part of your psoriasis treatment regime. This is important because it's when your skin becomes dry that it tends to cause your condition to deteriorate, and we all know what that means - itching, scaling and a general discomfort.
A good way to maintain skin moisture is by taking a bath. If you can manage to do this on a daily basis, so much the better. However, don't let the water get too hot as this can irritate your skin further. You also need to be careful about what soap you use on your body, since some soaps can make matters worse. So, always use a very soft, mild soap, ideally one made from natural ingredients without any harsh chemicals. There are some very good liquid soaps available now which aren't at all harsh and which can be far more soothing than a bar of soap.

“How do I cure my psoriasis” is one of the most frequent questions we get asked here at Katharine Botanicals. Sadly, this isn’t something we can promise you, because as yet, scientists haven’t been successful in developing anything which has been proven to cure your psoriasis for good.
Instead all we can offer are our natural products which can alleviate your symptoms gently, whether on the scalp or on other parts of your body, soothing your skin and hopefully offering you some respite from the painful itching, redness and discomfort many of you experience.
We have also found that for some reason as yet unknown, many treatments, whilst effective in the short term can suddenly cease to be so, forcing you to go back to searching again for another product to use. But we have also found that after a period of time and a break from a particular treatment, it is possible to try using it again with the same level of effectiveness as before.
Much work still needs to be done on finding a cure for psoriasis, and drugs trials continue, but we hope that one day, a cure will be found and you can say goodbye to your psoriasis forever.
