It's a Common Skin Condition, But What Triggers Psoriasis?

Psoriasis is a serious skin problem that alters the life cycle of your skin cells. In summary, it is the rapid build up of extra cells on the skin's surface, causing the formation of thick and silvery scales which are dry and itchy, often showing red patches that can be painful.

Psoriasis sometimes gets better and may disappear but then returns after a while, sometimes looking worse. It is said to be incurable and may even spread across wide areas of the skin. It can thus dampen your self confidence.

Oily Face? Have You Had Skin Oxygen Therapy?

It's not so much the oily face as it is the dirt and microscopic debris that stick to your face and insert themselves into the corners of your nose and other parts of your face.

Then the fact that often, you can't wash your face properly when you're out and merely wiping off your face with a hanky doesn't suffice.

And did you know that often washing your face can irritate your facial skin?

Simply spray it on your face, gently rub, and your face feels fresh and the oiliness gone. It's bubbly creamy so it's not messy. Best part is, it's fo…
