Use of Dead Sea Salt in Treating Psoriasis

by Ellin Mahloney

Psoriasis is one of the skin conditions you’ll want to not have, and if you do have it, you’ll want it to go away as quickly as possible. This condition makes your skin age around five times faster than it normally would, and the old skin stays on the affected area instead of getting sloughed off as normal skin would. It’s kind of like a pile of snowflakes that won’t go away.

What is the best psoriasis treatment? There are different methods in treating psoriasis, thanks to modern technology. There are different topical creams, oral medications, and procedures such as phototherapy and light therapy which can help heal psoriasis and get the cells in your skin to function normally again. There are also home remedies like using dead sea salt to treat psoriasis.

When treating psoriasis, doctors can recommend a combination of creams plus oral medicines, or light therapy followed by the application of topical creams. This depends on how mild or how severe your psoriasis case is, as well as the area which is affected. There are also other factors such as the patient’s age, gender, overall health conditions, to be considered. However, generally speaking, these treatments are usually more expensive than others.

So what is the best psoriasis treatment? It really depends on a lot of things, but with the recommendation of your doctor, you can try several things to make your psoriasis go away. Dead sea salt is one of the treatments you can try. You can start off by mixing a cup or two of dead sea salt in your bath – this will keep your skin clean and moisturized. This will also help keep your skin hydrated.

Another way you can use dead sea salt is to massage it onto the affected area mixed with lavender oil. This will help reduce two of the main symptoms of psoriasis – itching and redness. Lavender oil also has antibacterial properties which will help clean up the skin and prevent any infections. Leave the mixture on for at least 20 minutes before rinsing off with lukewarm water. Apply a moisturizer afterwards.

Why use dead sea salt in treating psoriasis? Actually, dead sea salt has been used not only for psoriasis but for other skin conditions as well. This is because these salts are rich in vitamins and minerals, and are rich with anti-bacterial properties. Dead sea salt is also great for keeping skin hydrated, and helps keep your skin smooth and moisturized.

When treating psoriasis, the key is to keep your skin smooth, clean, and moisturized. You should consult with your doctor to find out what type of moisturizer you need (oil or water based, fragrance free, etc.) depending on the severity of your condition as well as the area affected.

You should let your doctor know that you will be using dead sea salt to treat your psoriasis as a home remedy. This would allow your doctor to prescribe medicines which will work with this treatment, and give you proper advice as well.
