• Moisturizing before applying makeup can help keep the upper layers of the skin hydrated.

  • Avoid applying makeup to any areas with open cuts or wounds, as this can irritate the skin.

  • Keep track of products you use and their ingredients—some can dry the skin and exacerbate psoriasis.

  • When applying makeup, avoid using products like coarse scrubs or pore strips, which can be harsh on the skin.
