How to Help Ease Your Psoriasis

Psoriasis is an autoimmune disease in the form of red, scaly patches or lesions on the skin. It comes in different forms and can show up on different parts of the body.

Psoriasis as of right now is incurable but treatable. Read on to find out more.

Diet Change

Your diet can be the biggest factor in breakouts of psoriasis and making changes can ease the symptoms. If you adapt your diet to help relieve your psoriasis, you should make the change consistently and slowly.

By jumping straight into a restrictive diet, you could deprive yourself of the vital nutrients your body needs. Gluten, dairy, refined sugar, rice, and nightshade vegetables (potatoes, tomatoes, eggplants) can be attributed to breakouts so cutting these out slowly can possibly ease your symptoms.

Manage Your Weight

Being overweight can worsen your psoriasis, so a weight loss plan can help manage the condition. By consuming certain foods and exercising regularly, a weight loss plan can put you on the right track.

Accompanying this diet plan, you should also consider making healthy lifestyle choices. A regimented sleep pattern and reducing any stress you have in your life will also help ease psoriasis symptoms. If you smoke, you should consider contacting a professional to help you quit.


Caffeine-based shampoos can irritate your skin and aggravate psoriasis. Consider looking for natural ingredient-based shampoos such as those made from seaweed for haircare and skin care.

Talk to a Doctor or Dietitian

If you’ve tried every possible avenue, diet, exercise regimens, skincare routines, and lifestyle changes and still see no results, talk to your doctor or a registered dietitian. That way, you’ll know what can be done for your condition.
