Licorice psoriasis treatment

Licorice is one of effective solutions for many skin diseases, including eczema, rosacea and psoriasis is no exception. This is thanks to a compound in the ingredient called glycyrrhizin, which is responsible for reducing itchiness and irritation. Into the bargain, licorice also contains anti-inflammatory and antioxidant properties that properly reduce inflammation and nourish the skin.

* Add 2 teaspoon of dried licorice root into water then boil. Let it simmer for 40 minutes then leave it cool down. Use a cloth to apply the liquid onto the affected area a few times a day to minimize the effect of psoriasis.

* Alternatively, put some licorice roots into a jar and pour in some olive oil. Cover it and heat it up for couples of hours or simple leave it for 6 weeks. Strain the mixture and use the oil to apply onto the affected areas. Let it sit for couple of hours before wash it off with clean water. Repeat the steps 2-3 times a day.
