Psoriasis flare-ups can be triggered by various factors, from stress to certain foods. Knowledge is power, folks! Being aware of your triggers and managing them effectively is half the battle won. You won’t just be dodging flare-ups; you’ll be setting the stage for consistently healthier skin.

Fall weather can be a real party pooper for your skin, leaving it dry and more prone to psoriasis flare-ups. That’s where humidifiers come in. Think of them as your skin’s BFF during the colder months, adding that much-needed moisture back into the air and your skin.

4. Cotton over Polyester, Always 🧖‍♀️

Clothing can make a huge difference when it comes to psoriasis. Cotton fabrics allow your skin to breathe, reducing friction and irritation. On the other hand, synthetic fabrics like polyester can aggravate your symptoms. So make the switch; your skin will thank you!
