How should you wash up if you have psoriasis?

ANSWER

You want to start with a clean surface. So start your day by using a soft washcloth and a mild cleanser to gently rub away flaking skin. This will give your skin a smoother look. Flakes can make your skin appear bumpy and uneven, even when you’re wearing makeup.
