Exams, Stress & Psoriasis

Stress is known to be a common trigger for a psoriasis flare-up, and any form of stress will cause my psoriasis to break out. Last year, when I was finishing off my undergraduate degree, my skin went through its worst due to the stress of final exams and assignments. I have spent the last three months writing up my Masters thesis and this time round, I was determined to not let my psoriasis take control. I’m not going to say don’t stress, because that is impossible! I have, however, found ways in which you can reduce or control your stress. My blog post for HelloSkin shares my tips on how to handle heavy work load, stress and psoriasis.
