August is Psoriasis Awareness Month. Many people find Alabu Skin Care because they are having problems with their skin. One of those problems is psoriasis; an autoimmune disease that causes inflammation and typically appears as scaly patches that are red and raised. Psoriasis is can be mild or a very severe disease. Non medical approaches like diet changes, reducing stress, using a moisturizing soap, keeping moisturizers on your skin and avoiding hot showers can help the condition, but it is often not enough. There are five different types of psoriasis which makes it difficult to self diagnose. If you suspect you have psoriasis you should check out the National Psoriasis Foundation. They have mountains of information to help.
