A lot of people don't know this about me, but I suffer from psoriasis; a condition that has been in my family for generations. For those of you that don't know, psoriasis is a condition in which skin cells build up and form scales and itchy, dry patches.
When I was younger, around third grade or so, is when I started to develop psoriasis on my scalp. It was incredibly itchy and I would constantly be brushing the flakes off my clothes. My mom would try to apply a cream or balm to each patch to try to hydrate my skin and get rid of the itching but it never worked. As I got older, the patches spread to my elbows, arms and stomach and I would try my best to cover it up. After trying numerous steroid creams (prescribed by my doctor) I finally found a product that I really loved, Simple Sugars. I first learned about Simple Sugars when I saw the founder pitch her product on the very first season of Shark Tank (SS received an investment from Mark Cuban's whose children deal with psoriasis). While I love Simple Sugars and will continue to use it, it only helps on the surface.
Recently, I was asked to test out SkinSmart Antimicrobial™ which although made specifically for eczema, works great on my skin. It is based on Hypochlorous, a “secret weapon” in skin care treatment that has been used in the medical field for years to treat serious and chronic skin & wound issues, but was only available with a prescription, until now.
SkinSmart Antimicrobial uses Hypochlorous technology to bring new solutions to help your skin. Their technology works because advances in science have taught doctors much more about the role of bacteria and microorganisms on the skin. What does that means? Studies show that most eczema sufferers have an excess amount of Staph (staphylococcus bacteria) on their skin. SkinSmart doesn't just soothe symptoms, it addresses this problem at the root. The product removes microorganisms, which promotes healing, helps itch, soothes your skin, and more. Best of all – it can be used on any skin, even faces, as much as you need.
What I love most about SkinSmart is their are driven to break the cycle of never ending creams and steroids (as I mentioned above)! The product is steroid-free, dries like water with no residue, is great for all ages, soothes angry, red, broken skin & of course promotes healing. I have only been using the spray for a few days and can already see a difference. It also has NO restrictions on use. In fact, the more exposure your skin has to the product the better.
Right now, this product is available in the following stores: Safeway, Albertsons, Jewel-Osco, Vons, Pavilion, Tom Thumb, Randalls, Lunds/Bylerys. It is also available on Amazon (depending if weather is permitting as product can freeze). You can also email the company at: email@example.com and they will find the closest store to you!
