Showing off your skin guide tip 1

Don’t miss that concert or party just because of a flare-up. You deserve to post your favorite memories on social media, too. If someone judges you because of your skin or makes a mean comment, try not to take it personally. Take the opportunity to educate them. Let them know that they can’t “catch” psoriasis, and you’re much more than your condition.

If you're feeling down, look for help. If you need to, speak with a therapist. There are also psoriasis support groups and communities where people like you are sharing their tips and truths. You can, too, because your experience matters. You may be surprised to find that you’re part of a thriving community of people who have experienced the same feelings as you—and learned how to feel more in control of their psoriasis.

Get to know yourself. Flare-ups can be caused by many triggers such as cold weather, drinking too much, smoking, or more. Pay attention to what you were doing, eating, and feeling the next time you experience symptoms. Once you figure out your triggers, there are steps you can take to manage them, like exercising, meditation, or a few simple changes to your diet. Talk to your doctor if you need help getting into a healthier new routine.
