Alternate frequent and short exposures to sun: this has a positive effect on reducing and otherwise improving your symptoms.
To avoid sunburn, your exposure to UV rays should be gradual. It is a good idea to use after-sun products which can restore proper hydration to the skin and at the same time provide the skin with restorative and anti-inflammatory substances.
The use of emollients and ad hoc soaps is recommended in order to cleanse the skin in depth and facilitate scale removal. When the weather is hot, we wash ourselves more frequently but this can dry out the skin and worsen psoriasis. Therefore, it is better to use non-aggressive products such as neutral or oil-based soaps and natural oil-based body wash. Do not forget to hydrate daily with specific creams.
Psoriasis therapy must be modified in the summer following your dermatologist’s advice because many of the drugs being used may create photosensitivity (the skin would be more likely to get sunburned).

In the summer it is important to drink more liquids: preferably vitamin-rich juices: these are more beneficial than alcoholic beverages which would only make your psoriasis worse.
To avoid allergies limit the use of depilatory creams. Instead gently shave and only if you have no plaques, use the cold-hot wax procedure, tweezers and epilators. After waxing, the skin must be well hydrated.
Excessive sweating can make your symptoms worse: choose comfortable clothing made of natural fibers and wear open shoes to allow your skin to breathe and stay dry.
Practicing sports improves psoriasis and strengthens the immune system, but swimming pool water can dry out the skin and irritate the skin. That’s why, you have to dry your skin carefully and maintain high hydration levels.
