Psoriasis, a skin disorder characterized by dry, itchy, and scaly skin, is one condition that may be helped by improving the diet. Although the research is far from conclusive, there is evidence that eliminating gluten, swapping calorie-rich foods for low-calorie options, and choosing anti-inflammatory foods where possible could improve the symptoms of psoriasis.

However, some diet tips may help people with psoriasis to reduce inflammation and enhance weight loss efforts, if necessary. These tips include:

Avoiding sugar: Excess sugar in the diet can worsen inflammation, so reducing or eliminating added sugars may be an important first step.

Drinking plenty of water: Water provides hydration to every part of the body, including the skin. Consuming enough fresh, clean water throughout the day may help improve the texture, look, and feel of the skin.

Avoiding gluten, if appropriate: For some people, eliminating gluten from the diet may help.

Eliminating trans fats: Hydrogenated oils, sources of trans fats, are common in packaged and fried foods nowadays. It is best to cut out all types of trans fats, as these can lead to inflammation.

Choosing anti-inflammatory foods: Vegetables, berries, nuts, seeds, and spices are all anti-inflammatory. There is a lack of research to show whether or not these can improve psoriasis, but they may be a helpful addition for any person seeking to reduce inflammation.

Weight loss is an important lifestyle component for reducing inflammation, potentially helping to minimize symptoms associated with psoriasis. Incorporating more nutrient-dense foods into the diet and reducing junk foods can assist in reducing excess weight and other metabolic parameters associated with excess inflammation.

Besides diet, a research suggests that exposing the skin to small amounts of sun every day may benefit patients with psoriasis as vitamin D, a hormone produced by the body upon exposure to sunlight may play a pivotal role in reducing symptoms. Results published in the British Journal of Dermatology found that a 20-week program of dietary intervention, as well as increased physical exercise, led to an improvement in psoriasis symptoms. This benefit may be because exercise enables a person to lose weight, to minimize inflammation, or both.
