Trigger Warning: 4 Common Ways to Provoke Psoriasis Symptoms

Psoriasis can be tricky to tackle, especially when everyone’s skin is different. There’s often no hard-and-fast rule to follow. Some days are fine, and other days can be uncomfortable or downright unbearable. Do you know what causes these bad skin days and how to treat your flares when they happen? Check out four common psoriasis symptom triggers and learn how MetaDerm® helps you keep your skin prepared for almost anything.

No. 1: Stress

Whether you’re working long hours, cramming for a big test or going through a major life event, stress can do some crazy things to your body – especially for those with psoriasis. While it can feel tough to keep your stress under control, you can help promote healthy during those times by sticking to your skincare routine, including using MetaDerm at least twice daily. By applying MetaDerm frequently, you can help keep your skin feeling and looking good.

No. 2: Weather

Your psoriasis symptoms can take a hit when extreme weather comes around. Both cold fronts and hot, humid weather can lead to flares. Keep an eye on the forecast, so you can prep your skin for whatever nature throws your way. Then, make sure to apply MetaDerm (and apply often) if things look extra chilly or hot.

No. 3: Travel

Whether you’re traveling for business or booking a vacation, exploring a new destination can mean new weather, new temperatures, new routines, and, often, new psoriasis flares. Make sure to pack your MetaDerm, so you can have effective psoriasis relief when you need it.

No. 4: Change in Routine

You might not be traveling to Paris, prepping for a blizzard or stressing about a new job, but even the slightest change in your routine can have an impact on your skin. Some examples are using a new soap or detergent, wearing new clothing, or trying new bedsheets. That’s why it’s important to maintain a proper skin care routine. MetaDerm makes it easy by delivering the products you need when you need them. When you’re steady with your routine, your skin will be steadier, too.

Everyone is different. One trigger might really throw off your skin, but not be that big of a deal for someone else. That’s what makes MetaDerm’s personal approach so unique.
