Humidifiers and Sorion Cream – Your Community Recommendations
Last updated: June 2018
When it comes to managing psoriasis it can be incredibly helpful to load up on tips and tricks from other psoriasis sufferers. That’s why we like to keep track of the products and treatments you say have worked for you. In our last article of your favorite things, we reviewed Bag Balm, Gold Bond, SAL3 soap, Biofreeze, and Pinion Salve. To keep the tradition going, here are some of your favorites from Summer 2017.
Most of us know that dry skin can exacerbate plaque lesions and itching. One way to combat this is to maintain a higher humidity in your house to prevent moisture loss through your skin. Keeping a humidifier in your bedroom while sleeping can be particularly helpful. Most humidifiers plug into the wall and are noisy, which is enough to turn some of us off. A creative option you can try is called the Rumidifier, a creative take on your traditional humidifier. Like a regular humidifier, you fill it with water, but instead of plugging it in you place it over an air vent and physics does the rest! No electricity. No noise. Just the way we like it!
Sorion Herbal Cream
Like Yiganerjing, Sorion is a fairly new breakout star in the psoriasis community. Boasting psoriasis-friendly ingredients like coconut oil and neem, it’s understandable why so many of you like it. It comes with a 45-day money back guarantee and if you ask them nicely they will sometimes send you a free sample. Although this cream didn’t work for me in particular, I’ve read at least a hundred positive reviews and that’s enough to get me excited for you! If that’s not enough to sway you, the business owners are incredibly friendly and the company has a strict “no frills” policy. No catchy gimmicks here.
Moringa Seed Oil
A number of you named moringa seed oil as a great stand-alone moisturizer or as a companion to your regular moisturizing routine. Make sure to buy the oil in a bottle with a pump or spray top to avoid getting it all over the place. Moringa seed oil is great to use on the skin or the scalp and is claimed to have anti-inflammatory and anti-aging properties. It was even reportedly used as far back as 1400BC by the Egyptians. Sign me up, Cleopatra.
If you have nail issues accompanying your psoriasis, you’ll appreciate this community recommendation. Mix Listerine and warm water in a 50:50 ratio and soak your nails. In the same way that some people find Listerine or other mouth washes can work on scalp psoriasis, this is a neat community tip to try for your nails. How long do you soak them for? The member who recommended this said they’ll sometimes soak for up to an hour while watching TV. What’s not to love?
