Psoriasis is an auto-immune disorder characterised by patches of itchy, flaky, red, and often inflamed skin.

 

While psoriasis is considered incurable, there are a number of ways to relieve flare-ups. 

 

Check out these brilliant home remedies, that will soothe your inflamed skin:

 

1. UV rays

If you find yourself in a handsome climate, then go out there and get some sun. Irritated skin will benefit greatly from the natural vitamin D produced from exposure to sunlight. Be sure to wear a strong SPF though, to avoid sun burn.

4. Capsaicin ointment

Capsaicin is the natural chemical that makes spicy peppers spicy, and it is a common ingredient found in pain-relief creams and ointments. Applying capsaicin ointment to skin affected by psoriasis will cause intense burning initially, quickly followed by relief of both pain and itching.
