It’s officially fall! You’ve brought out your favorite sweaters, redecorated and stocked up on your favorite scented candles. You’re ready for the cooler temperatures, but not the psoriasis flare-ups that might come with the change in seasons. If your psoriasis is leaving you self-conscious, you’re not alone. Over 7.5 million people in the world have the autoimmune skin condition. That’s why FREEDOM Naturals® is here to give you the lowdown on psoriasis, from what it is, to how to manage it.
What is Psoriasis?
Psoriasis is a condition that causes the body to make new skin cells in days rather than weeks. As a result of an overactive immune system, thick and scaly patches called plaques occur. Plaques are found on 80-90 percent of people living with psoriasis and are most commonly found on the elbows, knees, lower back and scalp. While there’s no cure for psoriasis, proper care can help relieve symptoms.
What To Expect: Triggers & Symptoms
Psoriasis flare-ups can be unpredictable and inconvenient. Cold and dry weather can increase the chance of flare-ups, causing skin inflammation. Stress can also trigger outbreaks, along with infections and certain medications. Symptoms differ from person to person, but common symptoms include inflamed and dry skin, soreness around patches and painful joints.
