Psoriasis is of the most unpredictable and irritating disease! Psoriasis is one of the most persistent of skin disorders. It’s characterized by skin cells that multiply up to 10 times faster than normal. As underlying cells reach the skin’s surface and die, their sheer volume causes raised, red plaques covered with white scales. Psoriasis typically occurs on the knees, elbows, and scalp, and it can also affect the torso, palms, and soles of the feet.
Kill That Dryness
Looking for a way to kill the itch? A coconut oil can be the answer. Try petroleum jelly or coconut oil. It locks water into your skin to help it heal and reduce the redness.
Get a Little Sun
Spend some time in the great outdoors. The sun’s ultraviolet B rays can help fight your psoriasis.
Stick to 5 or 10 minutes a day, and use sunscreen on spots without psoriasis. Too much sun can raise your risk of skin cancer.
Season Your Bath
Want to shed some scales and soothe your skin? Put Dead Sea or Epsom salts into a tub with warm water. Soak for about 15 minutes, and use a moisturizer when you’re done to seal in the water.
You might know it as the yellow herb that shows up in foods with a curry sauce. Studies show it may cut down your psoriasis flare-ups. You can try it as an ingredient in your meals or as a supplement.

Meditation and Yoga
Cut down your stress to shake off your symptoms. Meditation can help you take your psoriasis in stride. Yoga is especially helpful if you have psoriatic arthritis, too, because it eases joint pain and expands your range of motion.
