What is Psoriasis and how do you treat it?
We all know the frustration of visible blemishes and imperfections like redness on our skin, but for those with psoriasis these frustrations are not only continuous and painful, but the redness can have a drastic impact on physical and mental health.
What is Psoriasis?
Psoriasis is a skin disease which causes red, itchy, and scaly patches of skin that appear mainly on the knees, elbows, scalp, and torso. This chronic disease affects roughly 125 million people worldwide and manifests in many different ways. Some may experience constant flare ups while others experience them just for a few weeks or months before it subsides and goes into remission for some time.
The red patches of skin are often covered in small, silver scales, and can be dry and easily bleed. Additionally, psoriasis can cause itching, burning, or soreness, thickened, pitted, or ridged nails, and swollen and stiff joints. These symptoms can have a huge, negative impact on both physical and mental health and nearly 60% of those suffering from psoriasis report the disease to be a large problem in everyday life.
How Oxygenetix and Ceravitae® Can Help
While there unfortunately is no cure, there are several treatment options for psoriasis that can reduce the pain, redness, and irritation the disease causes. Here at Oxygenetix, every product contains our patented hero ingredient Ceravitae® which can be used to treat psoriasis by promoting oxygen uptake to your skin cells. Just like our lungs need oxygen to breathe, our skin cells require oxygen and Ceravitae® stimulates that process. The stimulated skin cells make more collagen (skin proteins) and elastin, resulting in accelerated healing. It’s this property that makes our hero ingredient effective in treating psoriasis – Ceravitae® encourages collagen and connective tissue growth even in damaged skin.
Oxygenetix Foundation is a great choice for those dealing with psoriasis because it protects and heals the skin while providing breathable coverage. In addition to Ceravitae®, our Foundation is also made with aloe barbadensis that will immediately soothe psoriasis flare-ups. In addition to Ceravitae®, our Foundation is made with the plant-based aloe barbadensis that will protect skin while also remove dead skin cells.

The moisturizer doesn’t just moisturize skin, but it delivers oxygen to your skin, replenishes it, and delivers fast absorbing hydration that lasts all day long. If you have super dry skin resulting from psoriasis, this is the moisturizer for you.
