Head to Toe
"I also have to moisturize a lot because I have psoriasis. I like St. Ive's."
After reading Head to Toe in the March 2012 issue of Allure magazine, I came upon a shocking discovery. Kim Kardashian suffers from psoriasis. "Psoriasis is an autoimmune disease that appears on the skin. It occurs when the immune system mistakes the skin cells as a pathogen, and sends out faulty signals that speed up the growth cycle of skin cells." This discovery hits close to home because my father also suffered from psoriasis. I distinctly remember his battle with this disease as he struggled with dry flaky skin on his scalp, ears, and numerous other areas that would flare up on his body. As I inspect Kim's photo as she's dressed in a thin DKNY sweater and bikini, I'm quite sure Kim's condition fares far better than my father's, however this disease in no way hindered my father from everyday life. Her remedy seems to be that she "moisturizes a lot" and after a recent purchase from CVS, I too like St. Ive's body lotion.
