    For psoriasis I'd agree with the Snake Oil Bar, thats worked really well for a friend. Also, to moisturise psoriasis when it's not bleeding etc. Origins Perfect World is good.

    I have psorisasis - not an exfoliator, but have you tried Lush's Snake Oil Bar? It's supposed to be for scalps, but is fantastic at clearing up psoriatic breakouts - especially the thick horrid ones that tend to 'chip' and bleed.
    never tried it.....I'm being hospitalised in 2 weeks for it - so if i have a breakout i'll get some thanks fluffy hunny ^_^ xoxo

    molton brown do really nice exfoliation products but they are quite expensive! They lost for yonks though... and are for all types of skin.

    Except mine. I hate Molton Brown - I suspect that the quality of their ingredients is not quite as high as they make out...

    For 'general' moisture, I swear by Nivea Soft - it's the only cream, including prescribed emollients, that my skin has never developed a 'resistance' to...

    After I finished my first degree, my whole head (face and scalp) was covered in psoriasis. Nothing prescribed to me would touch it, and including psoralen photo-treatment. Snake Oil cleared it up in less than a month! --> :adore:

    Here's the ingredient list:

    Ingredients: Cocoa Butter (Theobrama cacao), Shea Butter (Butyrospermum parkii), Alkanett Extract (Alkanna tinctoria), Peppermint Oil (Mentha piperita), Lavender Oil (Lavandula hybrida), Tea Tree Oil (Melaleuca alternifolia), *Geraniol, *Limonene, *Linalool, Perfume.
    * Occurs naturally in essential oils


    I'm suspecting that it's somewhere near to cold tar in mode of action as it smells similar (but without ruining all your clothes and bedding!)

    I came across LUSH before they were a high street presence. They used to operate mail order out of somewhere in Poole.

    Here's their web address for mail order: http://www.lush.co.uk/system/index.html

    That Virgin Vie body salt stuff is just an exfoliator that came in a pot! I know some straight guys who exfoliate. It's not that uncommon you know.

    Omg yes. I don't straighten my hair anymore. I think it's starting to go 'out' now. I think nail filing is the worst lol. I do that.
