I ran out of prescription cream one day and the itching was FIERCE. I had some coconut oil for removing eye makeup and decided to slather it all over the itchy bits.
instant win! And my psoriasis was much better the next day..so I kept using it and now I have none on my body.
It is pleasant and easy to use. Soaks in quickly. Reduces the redness and scales on the first use. And its cheap! About £5 a jar. And no nasty chemicals. It is the absolute best topical for controlling dry skin I have ever used.
Its can also be used in the following ways -
as a hair masque - this also treats dry scalps. Apply the oil all along the length of the hair and also scalp. Massage it into your scalp for a few minutes, which is instant relief, then wrap it and leave it for a while. Use your usual prescription or favoured shampoo to remove it. Condition. Dry. Done!
as lip salve - pop it in a small jar or pot and apply as needed. Cheap. Effective. No nasty chemicals
as a cuticle oil
general moisturising after handwashing
As a brilliantly effective eyemakeup and general makeup remover
Just because its so incredibly good at getting rid of psoriasis!
it rubs off of the soles of your feet though and doesn't work so well there. For that I use flexitol!
