Skin Condition: Psoriasis
The Problem: Psoriasis
Psoriasis is a skin condition where skin cells multiply faster than normal. This is caused by an overactive immune system. This chronic, inflammatory skin condition appears as thick red or silver colored patches of skin that are inflamed and may flake. These patches commonly appear on the elbows, knees, lower back and scalp. In some cases, psoriasis may be painful and itch, crack or bleed.
According to National Institutes of Health, some 5.8 to 7.5 million Americans, 2-3% of the world’s population, are afflicted with this disease. Between 10 and 30 percent of people who have psoriasis also have psoriatic arthritis that causes joint swelling and pain.
Psoriasis is not a single skin condition; it has multiple types, each one having very distinct symptoms. There are seven types of psoriasis: plaque (the most prevalent), inverse, nail, pustular, guttate, psoriatic arthritis and erythrodermic. It is important to share with others that all psoriasis types are not contagious.
The Solution: Ultra Essence Skincare Products
Ultra Essence skincare products are paraben free, gluten free, non-comedogenic (won’t clog pores), and hypoallergenic. They are formulated with natural ingredients that end dry skin forever, relieve skin conditions and reverse the signs of aging.
The following Ultra Essence skincare products are dermatologist recommended and very effective for psoriasis.
- The main product we recommend from our skincare line for dry skin is Ultra Balm (or Ultra Handy Man for men). Ultra Balm is our signature daily moisturizer and a customer favorite for over 15 years. Ultra Balm’s non-greasy formula does not clog pores. It contains lanolin, vitamins A, D and E, grapefruit seed extract and aloe vera to repair skin cells that have been damaged by the sun, pollutants and the body's own aging process. These natural ingredients fight against acne and dry skin to reveal a more clear, youthful-looking complexion. Ultra Balm is long-lasting and is formulated to moisturize the face and body without a greasy feeling that stays on the surface of your skin. Ultra Balm soaks right in as the skin welcomes the nutrients it needs to stay milky soft and balanced. Ultra Balm is proud of its formulation that maintains a PH Level of about a 6.0 helping to keep your skin healthy.
- First soak the affected area for at least 20 minutes in warm (not hot) water. Then, gently rub skin with a clean wash cloth; not too hard as the skin underneath is very raw. When your pores are still open, lightly pat (not rub) your skin dry and then immediately apply Ultra Balm to the affected area. Ultra Balm penetrates deep into the skin, restoring the skin’s proper acid covering so that the skin returns to the PH level necessary to keep the skin hydrated, moist and protected from germs and infections. Follow your Ultra Balm application with a cold compress as this will close the top layer of the skin and allow the balm to do its work. You should follow up during the day with a small amount of Ultra Balm to any painful or itchy area. DO NOT rub the area every day. Wait a day in between to allow the affected area(s) to heal. You should notice a change within days or even hours, and you will immediately be much more comfortable.
“I live in Decatur Illinois and found your Ultra Balm at a Home & Garden Show there. I’ve had a bad case of Psoriasis for over 20 years. Before Ultra Balm I think I tried everything, from Prescription drugs, invasive injections to numerous alternative medicine treatments but none ever gave me the relief that Ultra Balm has. At first I was very hesitant to buy it because of all the past product failures I’d experienced. I am so glad I gave it one last chance! I put my Ultra Balm on daily and my skin is no longer cracked and dry, no longer itches, and the soreness I used to have is GONE! I want everyone to experience the success I’ve had with Ultra Balm and encourage anyone with a severe skin problem to just TRY IT, especially if they’ve tried a lot of other solutions that have failed! They will really be amazed at the results!” ~ G. Nordholm, Housewife, Decatur Illinois
- We also recommend Ultra Reverse, the best anti-aging, anti-wrinkle retinol cream for face and hands. This exceptional serum is richly formulated with CoQ10, green tea extract and retinol (Vitamin A) to reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles, improve skin firmness and elasticity, and reduce psoriasis, rosacea, dark circles and age spots. Ultra Reverse contains one of the highest amounts of retinol in over-the-counter products to renew and pump up aging skin cells. Reverse the signs of aging and leave your skin looking younger and healthier.
“I’ve had some fine lines and a crease between my eyebrows for several years. I kept trying different products and nothing was handling it. This was getting me crazy. I was at the point of seriously thinking of getting Botox. I purchased Ultra Reverse because my friend told me that this could help. I bought it with not much hope and after using it for about a month, I couldn’t believe how it worked! It diminished the lines and that crease, to a point where I wasn’t noticing it and had no attention on it, I actually forgot about the problem. It’s amazing! I am so happy. I would suggest to anyone who has similar problems, before getting any medical treatments, try Ultra Reverse!” ~ Claudia McDaniel, Houston, TX
We also recommend Ultra Facial Cleanse. Its non-greasy formula moisturizes and cleans at the same time. Ultra Facial Cleanse is non-comedogenic, so it won’t clog pores or dry your skin out. Dermatologist recommended, Ultra Facial Cleans nourishes, cleans and hydrates the skin to give you, not only clean skin, but healthy skin, too. It contains safflower and coconut oils, both known for their anti-aging properties and to assist with skin conditions such as acne, psoriasis and eczema. It's also a wonderful makeup remover! The water used in all of our skincare products go through our multi-million dollar water purification system to guarantee that what goes on your face and in your skin is not only effective, but also safe and non-toxic.
“I love this face wash (Ultra Facial Cleanse). I have really sensitive skin and this does not bother me. I have actually had some people ask me what I am doing because my face looks so good!!” ~ Michelle W.
Last, but not least, we recommend Ultra Sun Safe, our 5-in-1 sunscreen: 1. Moisturizes 2. Hydrates 3. Firms 4. Soothes 5. Protects. Ultra Sun Safe is the best SPF 30 broad spectrum sunscreen/sunblock lotion with aloe vera and calming botanicals for effective UVA and UVB protection. Ultra Sun Safe moisturizes while it heals and protects, and is safe for baby and kids. It’s natural ingredients, such as shea butter, coco butter, coconut oil, sweet almond oil and grapefruit seed extract work together to refresh and restore skin. Its rich formula is water resistant and non-greasy—your skin feels velvet to the touch. Our hydrating formula is sweat resistant, will not run and sting your eyes, and absorbs quickly into the skin. It has no visible film and will not flake when dry to enjoy every daily activity in the sun.
“I’m a model and an actress and I love going to the beach but have to be very careful to protect my face from sun burns and possible blistering, as a lot of my work requires close up shots of my face. A makeup artist recommended I try your Ultra Sun Safe and it has really worked beautifully for me. I no longer worry about enjoying the sun. This stuff is fabulous!!” ~ Jennifer Leigh, Beverly Hills, CA
