Living with psoriasis means regularly dealing with itchy, red, scaly patches that can crop up on your skin. And, while psoriasis — and an effective treatment plan — can look slightly different for everyone, having the right tools to prevent and calm flares is important.
"Psoriasis comes in different forms. For some patients, itch is the most bothersome symptom. For others it’s scale. For others, skin redness," Dr. Gary Goldenberg, a dermatologist in New York City, tells Yahoo Life. There is a range of treatment options for psoriasis, including prescription creams and ointments, light therapy and certain medications that can help, but skincare products can also impact your skin when you have psoriasis, he says. "It’s important for the skincare products to be gentle, yet moisturizing and soothing," Goldenberg adds.
Dermatologist Dr. Ife J. Rodney, founding director of Eternal Dermatology + Aesthetics, agrees. "Your skin needs gentle ingredients and antioxidants that help soothe inflammation while still hydrating the skin," she tells Yahoo Life. Some of the most important ingredients for people with psoriasis to look for in skincare include coal tar, salicylic acid, vitamins C and E, colloidal oatmeal, aloe extract, ceramides and zinc, she says.
"Products that are tailor-made for psoriasis-prone skin give better results because they directly target the inflammation and increased turnover of skin cells that we see in psoriasis," Rodney says.
There's a skincare line called Kenkōderm that's specially designed for people with psoriasis — and it's available at Amazon. Kenkōderm was created by a dermatologist for her husband, who suffered from psoriasis and wanted an alternative treatment that didn't use steroids or biologics. Right now, you can save 15% off Kenkōderm products through Sunday by using the code, 15YAHOOCREAM.
While dermatologists say that using Kenkōderm products may help with your psoriasis, they stress that it's really best to talk to your doctor if you have the skin condition. "It's important to realize that using these products alone may not completely control your condition," Rodney says. "You should work with your dermatologist, who will likely also recommend prescription medications for your skin."
