As dependable as Christmas arriving every year, is the annual bout of psoriasis on my hands. Last year I wrote about the miraculous effect that M-Lab’s hand cream had on my notoriously difficult-to-shift skin condition. After just 2 weeks it had almost completely gone. Prior to this, the usual E45 type creams hadn’t made any difference, nor the cream the doctor prescribed for me.
I’ve since run out of M-Lab and since it’s a whopping £55 a tube, I haven’t repurchased it this year. Instead I’m trying a Swiss product called Selexir Peace Balm for extremely dry or irritated skin. Now the Swiss do this type of skin care pretty well in my opinion, no doubt due to the harsh weather conditions they endure over there. A peace balm is an essential bit of kit in sub zero temperatures.
In this case, Selexir was created by a woman who suffered such severe eczema for so long without any success treating it with prescribed methods, that she decided to research and create her own treatment, resulting in a product that produced amazing results in clinical trials, and cleared her eczema completely. The scent is very mild, hardly discernible in fact. It is formulated with 21 powerful, natural ingredients, is gentle enough to use on children and contains no parabens, paraffin, silicones or petroleum.
Anyway, I’ve been using it for a week now and my hands are considerably better, much less sore, and the swelling in the early stage of the psoriasis has reduced a great deal. It’s quite a sticky texture, very dense, so whilst it doesn’t feel that nice on the skin initially, you got the sense that it’s really doing the hard work. Tip: Don’t cover your hands in it and then attempt to drive! Your steering wheel won’t thank yo for it.
I’ll report back in a week to let you know whether it’s had the same astonishing effects as the M-Lab. So far so good.
A little goes a very long way, so a travel sized tube which is £20 will last you ages. Available online from http://selexir.com/shop
