Psoriasising since 1997...

Arm flare ups soooo annoying! So visible and grating, and rubs on everything whilst moving around in the day... 😑 Can't wait for it to fade a little... Which it surely will! Just a case of when ✨

Recent flare has died down, yayyy! So grateful. A busy time right now... Still focusing on diet and inflammation. Doubled up turmeric tea and been very limited on fruit. Continuing that approach, focusing more on sugars in foods... See how it goes!👍

How quickly things can turn around... Skin was great this time last week and now a week later it is looking its worst for months on arms! Isn't psoriasis cruel at times. Time to switch things up again and try something new!

The forearm guttate has officially turned into forearm plaque! How intriguing... 🤔

At a family reunion, skin is good, family is good, life is good! Back on the turmeric tea (strong) every day, and think it's really helping so much 💚

Forgotten how ace coconut oil is! Hadn't used it topically in a few years, did today as got fed up of my elbow flakes. Flakes are fine everywhere else at the moment! Since putting coconut oil on them this morning, they have been flake free all day 👍

Arms are a mess of guttate spots. Maybe nightshades are not my friend after all longer term! Or maybe it's other stuff... I've made a load of anti inflammatory snacks and am going to make a giant batch of turmeric paste tonight. Back to basics! 😄

Lemons are go again! 2 days now. Application of fresh lemon juice is helping to smooth over the appearance of the plaques. Will keep it going and see what it's like in a few more days! 🍋🍋🍋

Raaaarghhh so I scraped my elbow across the corner of the kitchen cupboard today. Waaaaaah it ripped the psoriasis plaque and made it bleed! If you cut your psoriasis plaques do you do anything different to it?

Went to the beach today with my children and got the flakes out in the sun! Mini flare this week is now subsiding. Wonder if it's the nightshades I've reintroduced building up in my system now? Lovely beach day in the ☀️☀️☀️

May get back to using lemons today! How is the lemon experiment going for everyone who has already started? 🍋🍋🍋

Is stress your number 1 psoriasis trigger? Me, yes! For sure...

Travelling back from London. Skin is prickly and forearm guttate bit sore. Probably the 3 alcoholic drinks at a wedding yesterday! Had a few psoriasis chats with people. Bonus! Do you tell people about yours in conversation? 🤔

Moisturising up before today's family wedding! Short skirt, neon earrings and get this.... NEON toenails! First time I have dared paint them since my toenail psoriasis cleared up. Yay to non-crumbly non-chalky toenails! 😄

Spin class, complete! Home, oil on scalp, paleo dinner going down a treat (Instagram @thislifethisskin). Most areas are behaving fairly well! Guttate on arms looking a bit scabby though... Does anyone else have guttate on forearms? What do you do for it?

Went out last night, dress on, legs out, heels stomping the town down! The knees were on show for everyone to see. Got to give that p some air! And keep it real for people to see skin of all kinds! That is what I was telling myself 👌👌👌

I revise my previous post to "COOKED" nightshades. Not raw ones e.g. the raw red peppers I ate last night. YEOWWWCH 😣😣😣 Do you find a difference between raw and cooked foods? Apparently, I do!

After 7 month elimination, got a maintenance diet going! Yes to non-gluten grains, eggs, legumes, nuts and, shock horror, nightshades! No to gluten, most dairy, sugar and high histamine foods. Posting photos on Instagram @thislifethisskin. 🍃🍃🍃

Wondering about supplementation after being dairy free for 7 months... I tried dairy reintros but have decided to stay largely dairy-free for a while! (Some dairy makes me nauseous too). What do dairy-free people take to supplement for that? 😁

Hello there! Home from Italy! How are you all? The trip was so awesome, my skin is thanking me for a week of kicking back in beautiful places at Italian pace. Couple of holiday pics on my new Instagram profile! I'm at @thislifethisskin ✨✨✨
