What type of clothing should I wear if I have psoriasis?

Solbari blog: What type of clothing should I wear if I have psoriasis?

Psoriasis causes terrible discomfort, pain and managing the disease is an ongoing task. General awareness of the affliction has increased over time and there are now clothing brands that cater to those suffering from psoriasis looking for a clothing solution which solves multiple challenges of living day to day.

Psoriasis clothing is clothing that has been designed specifically for those with the chronic skin condition that is psoriasis. Psoriasis clothing incorporates fabrics which alleviate irritation and help regulate body temperature. Psoriasis clothing ideally will also provide excellent sun protection which is important as sunburn can trigger psoriasis flare-ups, but particularly for those with photocontact psoriasis.

The best psoriasis clothing utilises fabrics which are natural, super soft, lightweight and breathable. Fabrics which are well suited to this purpose include cotton, bamboo and silk. Synthetic fabrics may incorporate chemical additives which aggravate the skin. Psoriasis clothing should also be lightweight so as to be more gentle on the skin. Bamboo is excellent for sun protection because of the closeness of the fabric weave.

Solbari has partnered with Psoriasis Australia to develop a range of clothing specifically for those with psoriasis.

The Solbari sensitive skin fabric is a natural blend of organic cotton and bamboo which is super soft, lightweight, breathable and offers excellent sun protection. As the leading sun protection clothing brand in Australia, all Solbari fabrics are independently tested and rated UPF 50+ by the Australian Government.

As part of the partnership with Psoriasis Australia, Solbari has introduced a discount code PSORIASIS10 which provides a 10% discount on all products. Additionally, any purchases made using the PSORIASIS10 discount code, Solbari will make a donation to Psoriasis Australia equivalent to 10% of the order value.

Solbari offers a range of products suitable for people looking to maintain healthy skin or for those managing skin cancer and chronic skin conditions. The range includes UPF50+ sun protective clothing, psoriasis clothing, eczema clothing and lupus clothing.
