Of course, men are not immune to the discomforts of psoriasis, and the media can be just as harsh on male stars as they are on female stars. Paul Simon’s musical counterpart had a tough time with his psoriasis outbreaks, and when a tour brought them to Israel, Garfunkel paid a visit to the Dead Sea for a soak in the salty, buoyant water, like locals have been doing for centuries to soothe their skin. The salty water unfortunately didn’t do much for his skin, but Garfunkel has fond memories of the beautiful surroundings.
From athletes to models, plenty of other notable names live with psoriasis, and though they each have personal experiences of the disease, they do have one thing in common – they’ve learned to honor their talents and overcome the hurdle rather than let the disease keep them in the dark. Follow their lead and use the resources around you to manage your psoriasis, restore your confidence, and realize your potential.
