Psoriasis affects around 2 in 100 people in the UK. It can start at any age but most often develops in adults between 20 and 30 years old and between 50 and 60 years old. It affects men and women equally. On brown, black and white skin the patches can look pink or red and the scales white or silvery. On brown and black skin the patches can also look purple or dark brown and the scales may look grey. These patches normally appear on your elbows, knees, scalp and lower back but can appear anywhere on your body.

Damage limitation, it’s advisable to address any damage that you may have sustained over the summer months to your skin now before the onslaught of central heating, frigid air, freezing cold rain and bone shaking icy blasts . You might have spent many a happy moment soaking up the rays on a sun-baked beach, but what has all that UV exposure done to your skin? Even people who religiously slather themselves in bucket loads of sun cream may still experience negative effects such as dryness.
Luckily help is at hand. With a little extra TLC you can keep skin hydrated and healthy throughout all seasons. Step away from the gloop. Environ® founder Dr Des Fernandes warns against smothering skin in excessively rich formulations because it can deplete its Natural Moisturising Factors (NMFs), which means that it starts relying on the excessive ‘artificial’ moisture provided by the creams rather than learning to moisturise itself. Instead opt for Environs body duo, Dermalac and Body oil to promote a healthy, hydrated and smooth skin.
