Psoriasis and Alcohol

pilsener-beer-photoWe all already know that alcohol can cause a multitude of health problems and deficiencies, but did you know that it could also responsible for outbreaks of psoriasis?

First and foremostly it is important to point out that there is no medical, definitive proof that there is actually a direct connection between alcohol and psoriasis.

However, let us look at the facts

A connection between Psoriasis and Alcohol?

In 1986, a magazine called Dermatologica published an article by Monk and Neill investigating the relationship between Psoriasis and Alcohol. They studied 100 patients and found that psoriasis was found to be significantly more common in those that heavily drank. And since then there have been numerous claims from sufferers insisting that alcohol does trigger the condition.

So where could these claims be coming from?

Well, the prime reason that alcohol could possibly cause psoriasis is its dehydrating properties. Alcohol causes the body to become dehydrated; dehydrated skin is a big cause of a psoriasis flare up. A pretty simple reason with pretty problematic consequences.
This is not the only explanation for a causal effect between Psoriasis and Alcohol. Alcohol consumption is known to have a deleterious effect on the skin and so could well be held responsible for a variety of skin problems such as acne, rosacea and, you guessed it, psoriasis. Liver abnormality due to alcohol consumption could also disturb a person’s estragon levels, causing the skin to change and potentially deteriorate.
Alcohol-induced nutritional deficiencies can impair the absorption of zinc and vitamins in the intestines, causing a weakened immune system. This then leads to vulnerable skin that is susceptible to conditions such as psoriasis.

Uh oh! How can I treat it??

If you suspect that alcohol could be causing your psoriasis then, of course, your number 1 move should be to start living an alcohol free life. You may well find your skin (and body) thanking you in no time.
The best way you can treat your condition Is to keep it moisturised, moisturised, MOISTURISED! Use an all-natural moisturiser and therapy bar on a daily basis to soothe your condition and give it the hydration it needs.
Syrinx Za have a range of natural balms and lotions for psoriasis.

Paraben Dangers

paraben freeSo, we hear the phrase ‘paraben-free’. We know it’s supposed to be a good thing, but do you know why?

What does it really mean?  You might know that you are supposed to avoid parabens but not sure of the reason.

Actually, most of us would have to admit that we don’t even know what parabens are, never mind the harm it can bring to our skin.

What are Parabens?

Parabens are synthetic preservatives used in a multitude of food, pharmaceutical and cosmetic products including deodorants, shampoos and moisturisers.

The most common parabens are methylparaben, ethylparaben, propylparaben and butylparaben. Usually, more than one of these parabens will be used in a risky skincare product in combination with other types of preservatives. The use of mixtures of parabens allows the use of lower levels while increasing preservative activity.

As preservatives, parabens can keep your skin care products fresh for years. Yes, great for shelf life, but unfortunately not so good for your skin…

Why are they Dangerous?

When parabens come into contact with your skin, it has access to your body; in fact, statistics suggest that as much as FIVE POUNDS of cosmetic chemicals are absorbed by our body every year.

Parabens can mimic the hormones within our bodies and interrupt normal functioning of the endocrine system. This can lead to an array of problems, varying in severity.

The endocrine system releases hormones into the bloodstream and contributes towards healthy development of reproduction, waste elimination, digestion and metabolism. If this development is disrupted by something like parabens it can lead to an early onset of puberty in both young boys and girls.

If parabens begin to mimic estrogen then your body automatically becomes more at risk of developing breast cancer. Parabens have also been shown to be able to potentially cause decreased sperm levels.

What alternatives are there?

The best way to take control of your skin’s health and protect yourself against the Paraben Dangers is to be clued up on the ingredients in every skin care product you buy.

The best, easiest and safest way to avoid any adverse risks is to opt for all natural products. That’s where Syrinx Za come in!

All our products are absolutely, completely paraben free so you can treat your skin with the comfort of knowing it is being looked after and kept safe, protected and effectively treated.

Dry Cracked Hands

Best Hand Cream for Soft HandsDry skin on the hands is a very common yet very uncomfortable condition.

The skin on our hands is much tougher and thicker than most of the skin on our body, they have to be; they are worked very hard, always out in the cold, in water, using chemicals or working with machinery.

If left untreated, your hands could crack, bleed or even develop into a much worse skin condition such as eczema, psoriasis or dermatitis, or even bacterial infections.  It doesn’t have to be this way, soft, comfortable, beautiful skin on your hands can almost always be achieved, whatever job you do or trials you put your hands through, with just a little care and the correct natural products.

What causes Dry Cracked Hands?

There are a variety of factors that could be causing dry, cracked skin on the hands but the following are thought to be the most common…
Excessive Washing
Washing hands multiple times a day can very easily dry out the skin. Allowing sensitive skin to come into unprotected contact with hot water can also cause it to dry out, as well as using strong, chemical-based soaps.
Low Humidity
If you are surrounded by low humidity, this may well account for your problem. The combinations of low temperatures and low humidity in the winter or high temperatures and low humidity in the summer can wreak havoc on your hands and cause them to lose a significant amount of moisture.
Harsh Treatment
Submerging your hands in hot water, gardening, coming into contact with chemicals or even repeatedly exposing wet hands to open air could all cause damage to your skin and could very easily be the reasons behind your Dry Cracked Hands.
Allergies
If your hands come into contact with something you are actually allergic to (such as animal dander, pollen, etc) then dry skin on the hands could actually be a symptom of an allergic reaction. So, if you find your conditions worsens after coming into contact with substances such as detegents, cleaning products, metals, plants, costmetics, make up, creams, soaps or certain fabrics then this could indicate a skin allergy.
Genes
And finally, the one you just can’t control. Genes. Sometimes we simply inherit the misfortune of suffering with dry skin on the hands. However, this absolutely does not mean you can’t treat it!

How can I treat Dry Cracked Hands?

Once you know what could be causing your Dry Cracked Hands you can start to work out the best way to treat them.
Avoiding the common causes of dry hands is highly recommended. So, when washing up always wear gloves and keep the temperature to a minimum. Avoid overusing air conditioning units or exposing wet hands to cold air, and try to minimise treating your hands harshly. That means finding an all-natural, cold processed soap.
It may be worth visiting your local GP to determine if you do suffer from an allergy, especially if they are infected.

The Best Solution for Dry Hands

The best thing you can do for your hands, however, is to first change to a natural soap and then find an natural yet effective moisturiser that you can begin to regularly apply to your hands on a daily basis. You’d be amazed what a difference this can make!

Syrinx Za have a range of natural balms and lotions for Dry Cracked Hands. All Syrinx Za’s products contain carefully chosen 100% natural ingredients that can help heal and replenish dry skin to miracle standards.
Syrinx Za Hydrating Balm and Ultra-Sensitive Cream are both designed to hydrate dry, cracked skin on the hands, leaving it smooth and moisturised. Everyone’s skin is different so why not try both to find which works best for you? Alternate between using the balm and the cream twice a day and see results in just two weeks.

Psoriasis and Argan Oil

Psoriasis TreatmentThere are a variety of treatments on offer to treat psoriasis, however, a psoriasis sufferer should never purchase any treatment without  knowing first exactly what ingredients are in the particular product.

Argan Oil is a key ingredient to look out for when choosing psoriasis treatment. And why? Well…

Benefits of Argan Oil

The success of Argan Oil really comes down to its scientific properties. It has a significantly high level of fatty acids, antioxidants, phenols and carotenes, all of which are essential for healthy skin. Vitamin E is a key component in Argan Oil, perhaps the most vital vitamin for clear, healthy skin. Thanks to the high levels of fatty acids, Argan Oil is particularly effective in keeping the skin soft and moisturised, and keeping dry skin problems at bay. The natural properties of Argan Oil is the very reason this ingredient is so beneficial when applied to the skin.

Argan Oil is extracted from the kermals of the Argan fruit that grows from Argan trees. Argan trees grow almost exclusively in south-west Morocco and are surprisingly able to survive the northern advance of the Sahara Desert, making them extremely proficient at protecting themselves. In fact, local communities even refer to the Argan tree as the ‘Tree of Life’ due to its rejuvenating qualities; Moroccan women are typically considered to have the most beautifully clear, healthy complexions when compared to other regions, of which can be undoubtedly accredited to their long-kept secret ingredient protecting them from harsh environmental factors.
Impressive, eh?

Psoriasis and Argan Oil – a match made in heaven?

So, considering the Argan tree’s uniqueness and the oil’s natural properties, it’s really no surprise how well it can help a skin condition like psoriasis. Psoriasis is a chronic skin condition with symptoms including redness of the skin covered in white scale-like patches that can become very itchy, irritated and inflamed. Argan Oil’s combination of nutrients and vitamins means that these symptoms, particularly inflammatory symptoms, can be alleviated. Argan Oil retains the skin’s moisture and relieves the dry skin associated with psoriasis.

The oil’s antiseptic properties can help heal the damage psoriasis has caused the skin, meaning the redness and white patches become considerably reduced when it is used on the skin consistently and frequently.

Sufferers of psoriasis may have generally more sensitive skin, meaning they are more vulnerable to adverse side effects when using chemical-based treatment. Using natural products that uses natural ingredients as effective and minimal-risk as Argan Oil is undoubtedly the best option.

Our Recommendations

Both the Syrinx Za Natural Emollient and Syrinx Za Skin Revitaliser contain Argan Oil among a variety of other natural ingredients that work as a blend to relieve psoriasis in the most effective and risk-free way possible.

You could even combine the products to get the best results Argan Oil has to offer. You could start the day with applying the Ultra-Sensitive Therapy Cream, using the fingertips to work the cream into the affected areas gently but firmly, and then end the day with the Emollient, or vice versa.

As everyone’s skin is different, you may find one product works better for you than the other, so try them out and see which works best for you.

For best results, apply every morning and night – and during the day if patches flare up.

Good Foods for Dry Skin

fruitandvegYes that’s right – what you eat can (and will) affect your skin. That’s why it is very important you know which foods to go for and which to avoid!

Foods that have a high water content are great for your skin as that is what dry skin needs; moisture, both inside and out.

The following  foods will give you the correct mix of vitamins, minerals and other nutrients to keep your skin healthy and hydrated.

Good Foods for Dry Skin

Raw fruit and vegetables

Raw salad, fruit & veg will remove toxins from your skin and give it a moisturising kiss of life. Maintain a regular consumption of the green stuff in your diet and stick to your 5 a day – your skin will be thanking you in no time!

Zinc Rich Foods

Zinc-rich foods can help to heal skin and repair damaged skin – including dry skin! Beans, turkey, crab, lean beef and oysters are all full of zinc and are highly recommended for dry skin problems.

Vitamin Rich Foods

Vitamins A, C and E can help hydrate dry by keeping it moist, protected and detoxified. Lime, oranges, grapefruit, nuts, seeds and lean meat are highly vitamin rich foods.

Antioxidant Rich Foods

Antioxidants clear the skin and improve its over all health. They fight off impurities and protect the skin from free radicals. Foods that are antioxidant rich include vegetables, fruits, apricots, sweet potatoes and spinach.

Water!

And last but by absolutely no means least – drink, drink, drink water! Your daily water consumption should be no less than 4 litres per day. Drinking enough water is vital in detoxifying your system and keeping your skin hydrated and supple. If you were to consume just one thing to help your skin it should be water- it’s the undoubtedly the most important part of any anti-dry skin diet!

Bad Foods for Dry Skin

The key to choosing the right Foods for Dry Skin is moisturising from the inside out. If you are dehydrated then your skin will follow suit so avoid anything that may cause you to become dehydrated.

Alcohol

As you probably know, alcohol is the king of dehydration! It acts as a diuretic which means it encourages your body to create more urine and flush out its existing fluids. So, as you can imagine, this can cause serious dehydration issues, from the inside out.

To counteract the alcohol, ensure you drink lots (and lots) of water to replace your body’s lost fluids.

Caffeine

Caffiene is believed to also act as a diuretic, although not as extremely as alcohol. Still, make sure you drink lots of water besides your caffeinated drink – remember this is not necessarily coffee as caffeine also lurks in tea, fizzy drinks and energy drinks. So keep your caffeine consumption to a minimum and keep your skin supple!

Both alcohol and caffeine cause the skin cells and the body to lose essential minerals and fluid so drinking plenty of water, eating a variety of healthy foods and watching your caffeine and alcohol intake will put you on the path to healthy, hydrated skin. Pretty simple really!

Treatments for Dry Skin

Syrinx Za’s range is specifically designed to help alleviate dry, dehydrated skin conditions and all products contain only pure, natural and carefully chosen ingredients.

If you follow our guide for which foods are good foods for dry skin along with our treatments you will soon start to achieve healthy, glowing, hydrated skin.  If you need more help and advice please read: Help with Dry Skin

Tried and Tested Remedy for Psoriasis

Alternative Psoriasis TreatmentThere are many different types of psoriasis the most common being chronic plaque psoriasis, erythrodermic psoriasis, guttate psoriasis, inverse psoriasis, plaque psoriasis, and pustular psoriasis. The condition for the most part leads to red patches of thick scaly, crusty skin that itches terribly.

The reason for this happening is the newly formed skin cells rising to the surface too soon before the old skin has shed. It should take 28 days but with psoriasis, the new skin cells rush to the surface in just a few days bringing with them intercellular glue.

What causes Psoriasis?

As with eczema, psoriasis is not contagious, you cannot catch it from someone – the cause is unknown but scientists believe it has to do with the immune system and certain types of genes including one that has been identified as Psors1.

Psoriasis is a long lasting unpredictable condition, which comes and goes as it pleases, although there are certain reasons that a flare-up would occur; such as stress, injuries or illnesses. When this might happen is also unknown, Psoriasis skin can flare-up weekly, monthly or even yearly: every person is different. These flare-ups not only make the skin itchy and uncomfortable but it can affect a person’s emotional state, due to lack of sleep and depression.

Prevention is better than….

It is important that you follow a tried and tested treatment remedy for psoriasis regime that uses anti-mitotics to control the cells, not one that uses chemicals that will irritate the skin further. Syrinx ZA products do not contain chemicals, parabens or paraffin our ingredients are 100% natural and tests have proven that there is no risk of further irritation. Independent researchers found that Syrinx products not only treat the skin condition but continued use keeps the skin strong and healthy.

Regular treatment, even when your skin is clear – will keep the condition under control; prevention is better than cure so they say – although there is sadly no cure for Psoriasis.

Tried and Tested Treatment for Psoriasis

Amazed at the improvement it made to my psoriasis
I recently tried your soap and was amazed at the improvement it made to my psoriasis. Redness and soreness was much reduced and my whole skin felt better overall. My nephew suffers terribly with eczema so I will be buying your products for him too.

How to use the treatment

In the Morning

Wash the affected areas with the Therapy Bar, using a thick lather – to cleanse and remove toxins and chemicals. Leave on the skin for as long as possible before rinsing and dab the skin dry.

Apply the Ultra-Sensitive Therapy Cream to soothe the skin further throughout the day.

At night

Using the therapy bar, work up a thick lather and apply to the skin and this time leave the lather to dry naturally – even overnight if you can, but at least 30 mins before washing off as this gives the sapropel time to work its magic and creates the best results.

With this tried and tested remedy for psoriasis you should notice a difference in your skin within two weeks, some lucky people have noticed their skin is smoother and less itchy even sooner.

Acne and Stress

acne and stressIf you’ve ever noticed that a particularly stressful event such as an exam seems to make your acne worse, chances are it’s not just your imagination. Acne has been proven to be an unfortunate symptom of stress.

If you are an acne sufferer then strained emotions can cause a very unwelcome outbreak of the condition. Tiredness, anxiety and other emotional stress does not actually cause acne but it does worsen the condition for those that already suffer from it.

The proof is in the research!

It’s really no new revelation. Doctors have long suspected that stress worsens acne and these suspicions were confirmed after numerous studies seemed to confirm a connection between the two.

For example, Stanford University published a study that found that students were significantly more likely to experience acne during a stressful exam-taking period than any other time, concluding that acne severity correlated highly with stress.

Researchers from Wake Forest University School of Medicine also found the exact same results in a similar study, concluding that acne was worsened in high-stress periods than low-stress periods.

The connection between Acne and Stress

While we know there is some sort of causal link between Acne and Stress, what we don’t know for sure is why. There are, however, certain theories that may help explain it.

It is certain sebum-producing cells in our bodies that can be held responsible for acne. This is because sebum is an oily substance that merges with bacteria and dead skin cells to clog hair follicles and pores, leading to outbreaks of the condition. And how does this link to stress? Well, it is these very same cells that also have receptors for stress hormones. So, when we’re stressed the cells produce more of the dreaded sebum which, of course, in turn causes acne.

Acne and Stress can actually be a bit of a vicious cycle. An individual may get stressed due to their acne which then worsens the symptoms, causing more stress then more acne, more stress then more acne, and so on…

Alternatively, if someone is anxious or upset they may be more likely to pick at and scratch their pimples, exacerbating the affected areas.

How can you treat your Acne?

There are three things you need to focus on when treating acne: detoxifying, moisturising and soothing. Syrinx Za has formulated the Deep Cleansing Therapy Bar to achieve these key results as effectively and naturally as possible.

Wash with the Deep Cleansing Therapy Bar twice a day and leave the rich lather to soak into the skin as opposed to washing it off as you would a normal soap. The bar is completely natural and free from steroids and additives. It contains antiseptic qualities that have shown to relieve skin conditions thanks to its key natural ingredient Sapropel.

Don’t let Acne and Stress affect your life try this treatment and stop the cycle.

Common Skin Allergies

common skin allergiesA skin allergy is when the skin has an over-reaction to a particular substance, usually something that is harmless to a non-allergic individual. Skin conditions caused by allergies may result in problems such as eczema or psoriasis.

Generally speaking, skin allergy sufferers tend to have more than one particular allergy which means that, simple parts of day to day life can become a sensitive skin sufferer’s worst enemy.

Skin allergens are all around us – how much do you know about the most common culprits?

Top Seven Skin Allergies

Clothes
Rough materials such as wool can wreak havoc on sensitive skin and can be a major trigger for eczema.

Soap
Harsh, non-natural soaps can dry out sensitive skin and remove its natural oils, leading to dry, cracked or even bleeding skin. Using harsh shower gels can also present the same problem.

Cleaning Products
Cleaning products are, of course, not intended for the skin due to its high chemical content. However, skin can come into contact with these chemicals which can severely irritate sensitive skin and provoke allergic reactions. Wearing protective gloves when handling these substances is strongly recommended, particularly for sensitive skin sufferers.

Heat
Heat can aggravate the skin and cause an allergic reaction due to an increase in perspiration and the skin becoming dried out in high temperatures. Heat-induced eczema can cause wide-spread red spots, oozing, blistering, inflammation and itchiness. Ouch – watch out for those summer months!

Detergent
Detergents leave a residue in clothes every time they are washed; this residue can be anything left behind by the detergent, such as artificial fragrance agents. This not only provokes skin irritation but also cause clothes to stiffen, making clothes even more uncomfortable on sensitive skin. Perspiration against biological detergent can reactivate the chemical-filled residue and cause even further problems for skin conditions.

Perfumes and Deodorants
Allergic reactions to harsh perfumes and deodorants are very common so if you feel your skin may be at risk then seek alternative options.

Plants
Plants including ivy, lemon, lime, celery and some types of flowers contain an oil called ‘urushiol’ which can cause allergic reactions.

Creams
Creams that contain chemicals such as parabens and steroids work by sealing the skin and preventing natural moisture from leaving the skin, something that can damage and weaken the skin in the long run. It is always best to choose a natural cream or emollient to treat your skin and avoid any adverse side effects.

Our recommendations

Sometimes Common Skin Allergies are just unavoidable, but it’s never too late to start treating the symptoms so choosing effective, natural skincare is absolutely vital.

Our Ultra-Sensitive Cream, Therapy Balm, Emollient, and Therapy Bar all contain Sapropel, meaning you have a variety of products you can choose from to reap the benefits of the ingredient.

You could even combine the products to get the best results Sapropel has to offer. You could start by gently washing with the Deep Cleansing Therapy Bar and, after, applying the Ultra-Sensitive Therapy Cream or Balm, using the fingertips to work the product into the affected areas gently but firmly.

Alternatively, you may find one product works better for you than the other as everyone’s skin is different, so try them out and see which works best for you. If you suffer from skin allergies then replacing the Ultra-Sensitive Cream or Therapy Balm with the Emollient may be more effective in reducing allergy symptoms.

For best results, apply every morning and night – and during the day if patches flare up.

Chocolate Allergy

Chocolate AllergyEczema can be triggered by many factors and it’s possible that one of those factors could be a food allergy and more directly a chocolate allergy. Dairy products are a common cause for an eczema flare up. Easter and eczema is not usually a good combination.

Keeping young children away from chocolate is  difficult especially at Easter; they want to know why they can’t have Easter eggs like all of the other children; especially at school, where  chocolate eggs are sometimes given as a treat. It is however, much easier now to find dairy-free Easter eggs but it’s not always easy to constantly see what our children are eating.

How to spot an Easter Eczema flare-up

An eczema flare up due to a chocolate allergy can happen quite quickly. Usually within an hour or two of consuming chocolate, the toxins in the body will shoot up to the skin surface and cause irritation. The eczema sufferer may start to itch and scratch, causing redness, rashes and in some cases blisters. In serious cases someone allergic to chocolate can develop hives, nasal congestion and find it difficult to breathe.

What do to if your child has an eczema flare-up this Easter

If your child has accidently eaten chocolate while at school for instance, or you did not realise that they had a chocolate allergy you can help by taking these emergency measures.

  • Keep the skin thoroughly moisturised with a natural moisturiser – Ideally we would recommend Syrinx ZA Natural emollient cream
  • Keep the child hydrated, drinking lots of water will help
  • Cold compresses to reduce itching
  • Try not to make a big issue of it, stress can make it worse
  • Keep his or her fingernails really short, so that if they do scratch it will do less harm; maybe even let them wear cotton mitts at night
  • A lukewarm bath to soothe the skin and apply moisturiser while the child is still damp
  • Lots of sleep
  • Make sure in future you have a good skincare routine in place

Try this skincare routine to prevent and treat eczema

The best way to avoid flare up is to first avoid the allergy triggers, although sometimes that’s easier said than done especially when children are involved.

Its essential that you cleanse, moisturise and soothe the skin on a daily basis.

In the Morning – Wash the skin with the Syrinx Za Syrinx Za Therapy bar using only lukewarm water, preferably pre-boiled water. This bar is rich with moisture, completely natural and contains antiseptic qualities that draw impurities from the skin.

Directly after bathing apply the Natural emollient cream to damp skin to lock in the moisture, apply several times during the day if required.

Last thing at night – Wash with the Deep Cleansing Therapy Bar again and this time leave the rich lather to soak into the skin not washing the lather off as you usually would. Leaving it to dry on the skin and leave overnight if possible, allowing the key natural ingredient Sapropel to work is magic.

Eczema sufferers should try to keep up a skincare routine such as this at all times, to keep flare-ups at bay, and especially if someone with chocolate allergy has had an eczema flare-up.
