Psoriasis, the Sun and Hot Weather

psoriasis-led-treatmentPsoriasis is a very difficult skin condition, but sufferers often report that it tends to get better in the summer. 

It is generally thought that increased exposure to ultraviolet (UV) light is a help to psoriasis.  Longer daylight hours, more time spent outside and stronger sun rays all combine to increase the amount of UV exposure for the skin.

However, it is very important not to overexpose the skin to the sun. UV rays can be harmful to the skin, so sunscreen is essential to prevent sun damage, premature ageing and even skin cancer. Sunscreen can be an irritant, so choose formulations suitable for sensitive skin, as these are less likely to irritate the problem.

There are other ways of getting ‘safe’ light-based treatments for psoriasis.

Dermalux LED

  • Non-invasive skin treatment option harnesses the power of 3 specifically chosen light waves (red, near infrared and blue light treatment) that are absorbed by the skin
  • Light waves work to boost the skin’s renewal and healing processes, with cell renewal and collagen production
  • Can improve a host of skin concerns and issues including psoriasis
  • Gentle and safe for sensitive and inflamed skin. By preventing bacterial infection and relieving itchiness, the clinically proven, UV free alternative stimulates the body’s own natural response for healing.
