Becoming comfortable in the skin you're in can be a complicated process when you live with a visible disease like psoriasis. You have to be vigilant about taking good care of your skin: using sunscreen when you're going outside, wearing the right fabrics so it doesn't irritate your skin, taking warm (not hot) showers, eating a balanced diet of fruits and veggies, and drinking lots of water.
Having a conversation with your loved ones about how you're feeling on a certain day is important. If you're having a bad flare up and you don't feel like going to that big event, make sure to tell them why. Though they may not notice the flare ups, it still makes you feel self-conscious.
Opening up lines of communication with your loved ones about how you're feeling that day, will make you feel more comfortable in the skin you're in.
