World Psoriasis Day is dedicated to people living with psoriasis or psoriatic arthritis. It has been celebrated on October 29 for more than a decade.
If you suffer from Psoriasis, you’re not alone –around 3% of people suffer from psoriasis and the condition is usually worsened by stress. If you think your busy life may be impacting your skin, Westlab has the perfect skin soothing products to hydrate and calm skin.
Since ancient times the waters of the Dead Sea have been renowned for their incredible healing powers. WestLab offers pure, authentically sourced Dead Sea bathing salt and new Dead Sea bathing Supersalt with colloidal oatmeal and lavender. These powerful and therapeutic mineral baths are recognized as natural remedies to repair dry skin.
In honour of Psoriasis Day, we are excited to introduce our new US ambassador, Kim Weiler. After a 22-year struggle with Psoriasis, Kim has healed and continues to heal her skin, and it's her passion to help others do the same through her platform, Healing My Skin.
“I absolutely love using WestLab’s Dead Sea salt to treat my psoriasis and came up with my own easy DIY scrub that works wonders! I’m very passionate about what I put on my skin because it had such a tremendous impact on my healing. My whole life with psoriasis I never thought about the unsafe toxins in lotions and beauty products. If my dermatologist approved it, I used it! I loved my lotions, but as I started learning about toxic ingredients that were harmful I realized everything in my bathroom had to go! It’s all about eliminating toxins and these ingredients are anti-inflammatory, anti-fungal and anti-bacterial. They sooth and protect the skin against cracking, prevent premature aging and wrinkling, and keeps the skin healthy and rejuvenated without any chemicals or additives. Using these ingredients are not only more cost effective, but they will nourish and hydrate your skin, leaving it looking radiant. The same way we must eat a healthy diet to heal from the inside out, we need to use healthy, non-toxic products on our skin to heal from the outside in! It naturally helps you get rid of dead skin cells and the best part is, you won’t need to apply any lotion or oil after getting out of the shower, your skin will be soft & smooth. I love it, and my skin loves it!”
Here’s how it’s done!
Here’s the recipe for you to use at home!
