Pumpkin everything

While #pumpkineverything may be a fall favorite among most people, it’s quite possible that there is more to this pumpkin craze than just flavored coffees and treats. Could pumpkin actually be beneficial for your skin? Find out here.

Halloween costumes and psoriasis

Looking for the perfect costume? Not sure which fabrics will be most comfortable against your skin? Community member and contributor VickiN has you covered in her article “Halloween and Psoriasis.” An avid Halloween-er, Vicki has mastered the art of costume picking while keeping potential flare-ups in mind.

Halloween makeup

One of the biggest problems with dressing up for Halloween is  knowing which ingredients are potential triggers for flare-ups. “Tackling Halloween Makeup with Psoriasis” not only gives you the basic steps for applying your makeup, but it also provides a list of the most common ingredients that can cause flare-ups.

Take the Halloween poll

If you’re like the majority of our community, you may not even dress up for Halloween at all! Perhaps you’ve outgrown the need to have the most candy on the block, or maybe you’d rather be the one handing out the candy instead of eating it. After all, candy . . . maybe not so good for psoriasis? Either way, weigh in and let us know?
