Last year I done two health posts on my Psoriasis which you can check out here and here is a review of a product I was sent if you haven't seen it yet and I just wanted to give you guys an update on how everything is for me and let me know about yours too? I was very insecure on posting pictures until I realised after I chatted with some people that it may be a bad idea to be so insecure because I want to help people stay positive and be confident in there skin, so I hope the difference in these elbow pictures really help.
Above are two pictures of my elbows Left and Right and as you can see my left one is not at all bad but when you see my right, it was really bad beforehand until recently I started using Dermalex again and it's clearing up so well. I actually see parts of my skin through my psoriasis which makes me feel so happy and confident when wearing t-shirts as people often just stare at me like I am an alien or something, it's quite rude I always think but I understand as they just question what it is and it might gross them out but when it's summer I am in no way wearing a cardigan or jumper just to make others happy. I really want to credit this product because I used it last year and it helped, but I stopped using it after a month or two because I lost track with Uni work and everything was building up too much stress on me so I just brushed it to the back of my mind.
I have it also on my scalp which can make me so insecure when I want to brush my hair fully back up in a bun or just back with a pony tail, braid etc. but recently again I ordered some new scalp treatment and it's really working, I have to say I have a rather rubbish phone so the photo quality is some what poor but I promise this treatment does work, just please take my word for it.
You can clearly see it on my forehead and slightly on my hair which is hard to stay on top of all the time as I am not always in front of a mirror but it has cleared it up so well and I have also tired to stop itching it as much because that's when it peals and it's not letting the treatment settle. I know there is multiple other serious treatments out there that can get rid of psoriasis but I don't want to risk the heavy symptoms or conditions that can be received afterwards as I have read on so many websites and heard from people that have it that the side effects are so underrated as everyone wants rid of it quick they don't want to even think of them which in my opinion is ridiculous. I want to take my time and also help my diet out as I am not the fittest person in the world or healthiest.
Below are a further two images of my knees that I will later work on after my elbow is done clearing which won't be too long now if I stay on track with not too much sugar (chocolate haha) in my body and less food which will be hard but I am willing to give this a proper try so people can get a further understand of what this condition does and to help people realise that some treatments may be worth that extra hard earned money.
I have done a my into depth with it on my first post so didn't want to just jump into that again I thought why not show the pictures which has taken me nearly a year due to insecurity but if it will help others then I want to do it. It can be such a big deal with someone that has psoriasis to wear a skirt, dress, t-shirt with no jumper etc so if you see someone that may have this condition 1. Do not stare at them and 2. If your friend/family member etc asks how they look tell them outfit wise don't say how they look with their psoriasis because that shouldn't matter. Bring that positivity to your lives and others around you!
The Products that I am rambling on about in this post are listed below and as I was sent a free one before I wanted to let you guys know that Boots do it as well and I will have a link below for that. If this post has helped you then please let me know or let me know if you want to know anything else and I will try my best to update regularly on this Health matter, also pass it to someone you may know that it could help.
