Mine is pretty mild.  I was lucky and surprised that I had few spots on my wedding day.  Mine does tend to be worse in the winter though.  I made sure to keep up with my medications, and I was also using coconut oil.  I was planning on putting a small amount of concealer on my elbows if it had flared up there, as it gets really red, but I didn’t need it!

@SLfairytale:  I too have scalp psoriasis that creeps onto my ears and forehead. Sometimes around my nose. Not a popular or terribly healthy move, but I caved and went to the stand up tanning booth prior to my wedding. In times of flares, I do this sometimes twice to 3x a week and the uv kills it off. 

Avoiding dairy, a lot of wheat, also seems to help me. As well as supplements of fish oil capsules, and flax, olive oils consumed daily, about a tablespoon each, floated atop a small glass of warm water I just shoot it. Half an avocado a day too. This is a hardcore regimine for me in winter months; summer I can usually slack a little bit. 

Daily exfoliation with those scrubby bathing gloves helps too. 

Justa couple tips to try. Hope you find something that works!!!
