Does Exercise Help With Psoriasis?

Exercise can help to manage the severity and frequency of psoriasis outbreaks, but people with psoriasis sometimes find that physical activity leads to discomfort.

Psoriasis presents many challenges that can get in the way of living the life you deserve.

Thankfully, there are proactive steps you can take to minimize the problems that sometimes occur when exercising with psoriasis.

How to Exercise With Psoriasis

  • Wear Light and Breathable Fabrics – Choose loose clothing that wicks away moisture and breathes well.
  • Warm-up and Cool Down – Psoriasis can affect the tissue around joints, so perform light stretching and low-impact cardiovascular exercises until your body temperature is slightly elevated and joints feel loose.
  • Exercise Without the Gym – You don’t need a gym to exercise. Park further away from the store, take a walk around your neighborhood, and use stairs instead of elevators.
  • Hydration and Electrolytes – We lose a lot of water and salts when we exercise, which can worsen psoriasis symptoms, including those affecting the skin and joints. Drink lots of water mixed with electrolytes to keep skin and joints healthy.
  • Start With Easy Routines – Physical activity can trigger psoriasis symptoms, so start with easy exercises and slowly increase the intensity. Slow down or stop when symptoms occur.
  • Swim in Salt Water – Swimming builds muscle strength and endurance without impacting the joints. A saltwater pool is perfect because salt strips away dead skin cells, dirt, and debris that prevents skin from healing.
  • Avoid the Sun and Heat – People with psoriasis can exercise outdoors when wearing sunscreen, but they should avoid excess sun exposure. Aim to get outside before 10 a.m. or after 6 p.m.

Exercise is essential for maintaining bone strength, a strong immune system, mobility, and a healthy weight.


While psoriasis can take away some of your bodily autonomy, you can use exercise to build greater confidence in yourself and go on to create and accomplish amazing things in your lifetime.

Your Psoriasis is Not What You Think

My advice to all psoriasis patients is to treat your symptoms naturally.

But psoriasis is a personal disease that can take on many forms.

This makes it hard to talk about with your friends, family, and even your doctor.

That is why I wrote this article for you.

However, I wanted to make sure to get one thing across before you leave this page.

Please read this: Your Psoriasis is not what you think it is.

Psoriasis is an autoimmune disorder that causes the body to attack healthy cells in your skin, joints, and organs.

Why does your body attack healthy cells?

The answer is that your immune system is confused for two reasons:

  • Your body is overloaded with free radicals.
  • Your gut is leaking.

If you are serious about overcoming these issues, follow the suggestions in this article.

But I have one last suggestion that may help to accelerate your results.

Use my Liposomal Glutathione formula.

Glutathione is known as the mother of all antioxidants for a reason.

In liposomal glutathione form, glutathione is absorbed directly into the bloodstream.

This allows this powerful antioxidant can get to work controlling free radicals and guiding the immune system to stop attacking healthy cells, and to help keep your skin looking and feeling beautiful
