The importance of maintenance of psoriasis

Xavier suffers from hand psoriasis. You can read here his interview on his experience with psoriasis and the Hydrating Gel Plus HS, which he has been using for almost a year and a half with no interruption… or so we thought…

Xavier dropped by our office today. When he arrived, he told us : ” I had a beginning of a flare up 3 weeks ago. It was the first time in many, many months.”

Then he went on and said: “In fact, I had not had a flare up in such a long time and I had started to use so much less Hydrating Gel than at the beginning, that I think I had become a bit overconfident and complacent… Memory is short…

I was using almost no Hydrating Gel anymore and could tell my skin was becoming dry on the hands… and then I felt this flare up coming… So I started to use the gel intensely again, about 4-5 times a day like I was doing when I started using it. It took about 4-5 days till I started to feel the usual moisture again, and then the flare up went out… it’s almost gone now, see here on my hands. So now I am starting to use less gel again, but this was really a strong message for me: never let down the guard. Maintenance is critical.”

This is again a great, insightful testimony from Xavier. For chronic conditions such as psoriasis, which at the present time cannot be cured but just managed, it is critically important to maintain the quality of the skin. And this means using high-quality products which provide the appropriate level of moisturising, and also, ideally, ingredients with recognised positive effect on the psoriatic skin.

As far as we are concerned at Skintifique, this is a key reason why we developed the Hydrating Gel Plus HS: this skincare product is based on a unique formulation technology, which allows, with a very pure composition that contains only 8 safe ingredients, to provide  intense skin moisturising and soothing, while also helping maintain the cells in the epidermis in good health. The latter is due in particular to the high level of high-quality glycerine the Hydrating Gel Plus HS delivers to the skin, even hours after it has been applied.

Glycerine indeed, although it is usually associated only with moisturising in most people’s mind, also has natural properties essential to help skin cells in psoriasis for many people ; and Activifique, the exclusive formulation approach used in the Hydrating Gel Plus HS allows to deliver it progressively to the skin, unlike standard skincare products and unlike what one gets by simply applying pure glycerine to the skin.

 

Number of studies point out the effects of the Hydrating Gel Plus HS included in the Psoriasis Pack. These studies have been carried out on people suffering from psoriasis. We’ve been able to evaluate with great accuracy, benefits to users, after 2-3 weeks (corresponds to the natural skin renewal cycle).

NOW I HAVE PERIODS OF TIME WHEN I FORGET THAT I HAVE PSORIASIS

My skin became softer and more supple after I started using the Hydrating Gel Plus HS. Cracking of the skin appears less frequently, especially on my fingers, because the overall quality of my skin has improved. The crevices on my hands are healing more quickly because they are not as deep. Before, it took at least two to three weeks before they stopped hurting, whereas now the pain disappears in 4 to 5 days. I think this is because the skin is generally in better health when the outbreak comes
