10 Home Remedies for Psoriasis and How to Avoid Triggers

Sunlight Exposure

Another simple home remedy to improve the symptoms of psoriasis on the skin is to exposure the body to sunlight. Ideally, you should expose the skin gradually in short periods. Studies have suggested that UVB rays from the sun may slow the progression of skin cells in the affected areas, thus reducing psoriasis symptoms. It is important to apply sunscreen, ideally with SFP 40 or more, to protect your skin from damaging effects of the rays. Keep in mind this treatment is not suitable for everyone. People with a high risk of skin cancer should avoid it. Make sure to talk with your doctor before starting this home remedy. [2]
