Sun Safety with Psoriasis
While a little sun exposure can actually help to improve your psoriasis, sun burn can actually worsen it. Try to stay in the shade between 11 am and 3 pm to minimize the harmful rays. Have something to cover yourself (i.e., a hat and sunglasses) and have a place where you can go to get out of the direct sunlight. If you want to swim, you still can. Just remember to reapply sunscreen once you’re out of the water. You shouldn’t just apply sunscreen if you’re going to the beach or having fun in the sun. You should apply sunscreen whenever you will be spending time in the direct sunlight.
