Psoriasis – Make use of it.
October 21, 2017 by Simon Jury
Hello all. We’re already half way through October and thoughts turn to dark nights snuggling up on the sofa, bonfires, fireworks and all things spooky as Halloween approaches. Now I’m English and Halloween is one of those holidays I haven’t always agreed with. Firstly it’s a made up thing, I don’t like people knocking on my door at the best of times so dressed up as spooks in the dark asking for treats and threatening to do something if I don’t is why I’m usually just out for the night. However, I do like a party, well I do these days. Obviously there were times when I wouldn’t leave the house for fear of people recoiling at my skin but it’s Halloween and I have the perfect skin for that.
My skin has been improving but with the changeable weather, a busy life and a cold it has recently flared a little. Not too much but it’s back to itchy, flaky and some cracking so I make the perfect undead. So whilst all your friends go hunting for outfits we can all sit here quite content knowing we have a ready made costume and the best thing is, people will think it’s very realistic make up. If you’re worried about reactions to your skin and still not confident about showing it off, Halloween is your perfect opportunity. Mind you, I bet if there’s a competition for best costume we’d get disqualified thinking our “make-up” was done professionally.
This is just a bit of fun and just wanted to show that even with flaky dry skin we can still make something positive out of it and have a laugh. Believe me, I have been one to moan about this condition a lot so when I get a chance to use it to my advantage I will. So get out there, spook your neighbours and have a boogie to the Monster Mash.
