If you are a new reader, you can check back on my posts about my daughter having psoriasis here The Heartbreak of Psoriasis Part 1. Shortly after she was diagnosed, I was told about this company from my friend Kristin, The Perfectionist Mom, and decided to check them out.
I am not too particular when it comes to brands, but I did find one that I really, really like and wouldn’t do without unless I had to!
That brand I am speaking of is the Honest Company. You can find all their products right here Honest.com
The first items I ordered were their diapers and wipes.
She had diaper rash AND Psoriasis in the diaper area, and regular diapers were not cutting it. The Honest products are made from all natural plant based materials. No chemicals like ordinary products are. They even have CUTE diaper designs to choose from! Seriously, Honest Diapers; check them out! Within about 24 hours, her diaper rash cleared up and the Psoriasis areas started to clear. These new diapers and wipes definitely helped her already sensitive skin clear up. I was amazed!
Now we are in the beginning stages of potty training, so we have purchased some of the Honest Training Pants too! They run a bit small, but are super cute and have the same gentle effect.
A few months go by, I tell every new mom I can about this company because I am in love with their diapers and wipes and they did fantastic for my daughter. Then, the Psoriasis spread to her scalp…bad. I was told NOT to use ANY regular shampoos for babies. I was given RX shampoo…that made it worse and basically burned her irritated scalp. Next we were given another RX shampoo that did not harm her, but it was SO expensive! I used this for a week or 2, but it was so hard to try and keep it out of her little eyes. I decided to buy the Honest Shampoo + Body Wash and give it a try. To my surprise, this did not irritate her scalp at all. I use it every day now!
I also bought the Honest Bubble Bathbecause my poor baby had no bubbles because I was afraid to use anything. Her skin is so sensitive. Knowing how much I loved the other products, I bought this too! It was perfect and now my baby has bubbles to play with.
I can honestly say that I am in love with so many of their products, and I choose a new one to try every chance I get. Here are some links to a few more items I have purchased, love and use all the time!
There are products you might not realize would irritate skin but they do. It is one of the challenges we face everyday with her Psoriasis. Here are just a couple of the products that I now consider life saving products.
First up, Honest Sunscreen – This is a must for her in Florida, especially on little ones and their sensitive skin!
Honest Sunscreen Stick SPF 30 – This was a great way to get that little face and ears without using the spray or cream, and it is quick and easy to use!
Honest Bug Spray – We live on 5 acres and often have to tend to the chickens and have a lot of wooded areas, which make for bugs. It’s a little greasy, but I use it often, especially over the summer when the biting bugs were at their worst. It’s a spritz not an aerosol, so its easy to use and it works!
Honest Hand Sanitizer – You would never think of this but for a baby girl with such sensitive skin this all natural sanitizer, smells great and it works. It fits in my purse and I use it all the time. My daughter even likes to use it!
Honest Organic Breathe Easy Rub – We cannot use Vicks, nope not with her skin. This is a godsend with a sick toddler, enough said!
Honest Hand Soap – Hand soap that is natural, doesn’t dry my skin and smells great!
I know this post is link heavy and I would give you links to everything I want to try, but you may as well just check out their website at Honest.com because I seriously am going to try almost everything!
Please remember TODAY is “World Psoriasis Day”. Please, take a moment to educate yourself or someone else. It is a non-contagious skin condition that affects so many people. Strangely it is still so unknown to the general public. My daughter was diagnosed at 11 months old, which is very rare. I was diagnosed just a few short months after she was. Please, go to their website and take a few minutes to look through some of the information. https://www.psoriasis.org/about-psoriasis
