I've would love to share with you all my great experience, hope that it helps you all too.
I've been dealing with Psoriasis for almost ten years now, since I was 10 years old. On my both elbows, knees and most importantly an area on my right leg two times the size of my palm, which has been expanding through the years.
Like everyone else I've visited many doctors and tried so many treatments that i can't even recall the names.
About two years ago a friend of mine started using Sesame Oil as a moisturizer and she recommended it to me. Apart from using it as a moisturizer I used it on my psoriasis. I can tell you that it worked like magic. In a one month period, used once a day, my psoriasis was gone! I was even sometimes lazy and would only apply it once a week.
I sometimes forget to keep applying it to my skin, about a month ago my psoriasis was back, I'd given up because I saw no symptoms of improvement in the first week, but in a one month it disappeared again. I don't think I'd ever doubt in the magical power of Sesame Oil ever again!
I have to say that it did not cure mine, but it keeps it away and keeps my skin smooth as if I've never experienced such a thing.
I think it's worth trying. I also read somewhere that sesame oil has great healing powers, I hope someday someone can do a research and find out if it can help cure psoriasis.
The very wonderful advantages of using sesame oil is that:
1. It doesn't have a strong smell, or even a bad one.
2. The skin absorbs it so quickly that it won't dirty the clothes or sheets.
3. It's not as greasy as other oils.
4. It's not expensive (at least not in my country).
I hope that someone else can use this tip and enjoy having a smooth skin once in a while. Not being afraid and ashamed of wearing skirts, has been one of the best things that has happened to me in the past few years!
