While avocado oil may not be a definitive cure for psoriasis, many people report a decrease in symptoms with regular topical application of avocado oil.
Avocado oil is considered one of the most penetrating natural oils in the skin and is very good for lightening dry skin, and also widely used for the treatment of psoriasis in the skin. Although psoriasis is obviously a much more serious problem than dry skin, the deep, long-lasting moisturizing properties of avocado oil can help reduce symptoms such as rough and cracked skin and diminish irritant burning.
Avocado oil, with its strong moisturizing properties that penetrate deep into the skin, has proven to be effective for many skin conditions such as acne and eczema, as well as psoriasis. Fish oil, which is applied directly to the skin, has also proven to be an effective treatment in research studies.
It is very important to test this or any new treatment in a small or little noticeable area one day before using it in larger areas. This topical treatment has apparently been shown to be very effective in reducing its symptoms, particularly in reducing itching, as well as improving the appearance of the affected areas. It will take you about a week of application, every night before going to bed, to notice a significant improvement.
To use avocado oil and fish oil as a topical treatment for psoriasis, start by pouring equal amounts of each oil into two containers. With very clean fingers, begin by applying the avocado oil first, in gentle circular movements, followed immediately by the fish oil over the same area.
In this treatment for skin psoriasis, it is important to work one area at a time before moving on to the next. In large plaques of psoriasis it can be better done in sections. Make sure to use cold pressed avocado oil for a higher antioxidant content and a concentrated fish oil (perhaps with a touch of added lemon oil for a fresh scent) to ensure a high EPA / DHA content.
After applying the oil wait at least ten minutes before contact with the clothes. Alternatively, pat any excess oil with a damp cloth after a few minutes.
