School Lunches: the good and the bad

August 23, 2016

Making up school lunches for your kids be a challenging thing…..trying to get your kids to eat healthy foods, making sure they are not hungry and ensuring they have the right foods to keep their concentration level up throughout their school day.

Why is what you put in the lunchbox so important?

  • Childhood obesity is on the rise! Irish children as young as 7 are wearing adult sized uniforms to school and it has come to light that 1 in 5 children are classified as obese. Obesity related diseases like type 2 diabetes are on the rise.
  • Children need to know the difference between healthy food and unhealthy food. What is a “treat food” and what foods are vital for health. By avoiding unhealthy foods in lunch boxes we are sending the message that foods like fruit, vegetables, brown bread and yoghurts are better for you than chocolate bars and crisps.
  • Deficiencies are avoided by including a range of different foods in your child’s lunch box, from fish, to vegetables, whole grain, fruit and dairy.

Psoriasis Part 1

August 04, 2016

Psoriasis is a common skin condition which affects men and women of all ages. There are several different type of psoriasis.  Psoriasis often goes through cycles.  It can flare up for a few weeks or months, and then the symptoms ease or stop.

Types

Plaque psoriasis - the most common form of psoriasis.  Around 80% of people with psoriasis have plaque psoriasis.  Its symptoms are dry, red skin lesions - known as plaques - that are covered in silver scales.  They normally appear on your elbows, knees, scalp and lower back but can appear anywhere.  The plaques are normally itchy, sore, or both. In severe cases the skin around your joints may crack and bleed.

Psoriasis

August 24, 2016

Part 1

Psoriasis affects about 2% of the population affecting men and women of all ages from babies to adulthood. It tends to come and go spontaneously; it is not infectious and doesn’t leave behind any scars once it has faded. Skin is a complex organ made up of several different layers. The epidermis contains cells which are formed in the deepest layer of the skin and gradually change as they reach the epidermis surface before dying and shedding off. In a normal skin type, this process takes 3-4 weeks, however with psoriasis, the turnover rate of these cells is dramatically increased to 3-4 days and instead of shedding, the cells build up on the skin forming a plaque. There is no obvious cause; it tends to run in families. Certain factors high alcohol intake, stress, smoking and certain medications can exacerbate it.

 

La Roche Posay® range

La Roche Posay® have a great range to soothe, moisturise and reduce the occurrence of the flare ups. I recommend a gentle shower gel such as La Roche Posay’s® Lipikar Syndet which has no perfumes, parabens or fragrances and protects the skin from hard water and extreme dryness. Follow up with a really good body moisturiser such as La Roche Posay’s® Lipikar Baume AP+ which will keep your skin soft and moisturised. It also has an added ingredient which minimises itching. Another option is La Roche Posay’s® Iso-Urea which encourages desquamation (shedding) of dead skin cells which minimises plaque build ups on the skin.
