Psoriasis is caused by an overactive immune system that targets the skin cells and makes them generate very rapidly. Whereas a typical skin cell turns over about once a month, for people with psoriasis, the process may only take a few days. The rapid turnover causes the cells to visibly collect in thick patches (known as “plaques”) on the surface of the skin, and can feel sore or itchy. While symptoms vary from time to time, infections, stress, medications, or environmental changes can aggravate psoriasis.
Specially formulated sensitive-skin treatments (creams or ointments) can help reduce the symptoms of psoriasis. If psoriasis continues to present problems or cause discomfort, talk to your doctor about additional treatment options for you.

“Nefertari’s products have been extremely efficient in treating my dry, reactive skin, which is particularly sensitive around the mouth (the part between the mouth and the nose is usually very red and itchy). Both the cream and lotion have instant soothing and cooling effects that stop the itching and re-hydrate my skin, acting like a protective barrier. Unlike other creams I have tested, Houria’s line does not burn or tingle even when my skin is very irritated or broken. The irritation is progressively diminished, and my skin recovers a softer aspect”
