nightly routine with psoriasis

You made it: It’s the end of the day. Time to relax and get ready for some much needed rest. But before your head hits the pillow, there’s a checklist of hygienic and personal things you have to get done … brush teeth, floss, set alarm clock, and so on.

When you have psoriasis, your nightly routine can impact your symptom management and how your skin will look and feel the next morning. We scoured our Living with Psoriasis Facebook community as well as Instagram to find out what other psoriasis patients do before getting their Z’s. Check them out here.

Cheers and happy Monday! Sparking water and lime is just yum xo much love

I take an omega-3 capsule, evening primrose oil capsule, and garlic oil capsule — just one of each every day with my evening meal for my psoriasis and arthritis.

I’ve got it almost completely in remission after one month using (nightly) a blend of one to two drops each of chamomile, bergamot, and lavender essential oils, mixed with coconut oil.
