Proper skin care can offer many benefits for psoriasis in people with psoriatic arthritis:

  • Humidify your home in the winter.
  • Use moisturizing cream to prevent skin dryness.
  • Choose products made for sensitive skin, and be gentle when cleansing your skin.
  • Don't apply makeup or skin products to broken, raw, or irritated skin.
  • If you wear makeup, try using lighted magnifying mirrors and long-handled brushes to help you apply it.

Before using a new skin product, test it on a small area of skin. If there is no reaction after 24 hours, you can use the product.
