Super attention-seeking, fame junkie, Kim Kardashian appears to be turning into a lizard for the audience of “Keeping up with Kardashians”. The pouty, curvy, eager to undress, famous for nothing brunette discovered that she has Psoriasis which explained the flaky skin falling off her legs. She is not a zombie after all.
For all the make-up, expert lighting, top level photography and photoshoppery, the simple truth of it all is that busty Kim is just a human being like the rest of us, despite selling every inch of herself for every possible dollar out there (something which makes her somehow less human).
Imagine all those poor teenage boys with posters of the vacuous bint on their walls or desktops now discovering that the apple of their wanks is in fact a scaly, hideous lizard creature akin to something from ‘V’, or the interesting but ultimately disturbed mind of David Icke.
Enough Kardashian-bashin’ for now; let’s take a look at Psoriasis and how it occurs.
The condition is an autoimmune disease and is actually pretty common – around 7.5 million cases in the US alone. It manifests as dry skin which breaks away leaving weeping sores. It can appear anywhere on the body and generally leaves the sufferer in minor discomfort in milder cases and can be thoroughly debilitating in worst case scenarios.
It is similar to eczema and the two are often confused but in either case, if you find your skin has a condition, go seek professional help.
The doctors might prescribe steroidal creams and the like but the real trick to treating Psoriasis lies in dietary or lifestyle changes. It is triggered by the body attacking itself rather than external ‘invaders’ and identifying the cause can be difficult.
Some doctors believe stress is a major cause, while others suggest alcohol and tobacco contribute too. Rarely does anyone look at diet but as certain foods cause allergies (especially dairy) then it is worth trying to isolate them by not eating them for a month or so to see if that helps.
A daily intake of vitamins C, B6, E, Folate and Pantothenic Acid will do wonders for your skin anyway and should go a long way to helping with conditions like eczema and Psoriasis.
If only they’d rid us attention-seeking, self-hawking trash like the Kardashians…
