Psoriasis: The Rich and Famous

The battle with psoriasis can be lonely, and forging ahead seems difficult due to the endless obstacles you are faced with. However tough things may be, it is actually possible to live a normal life.

Imagine living with psoriasis in the limelight. Many celebrities have it, and they’re not about to let it get them down.

Kim Kardashian

It was quite a big shocker when she revealed her dreaded skin disease in an episode of Keeping Up With The Kardashians. It is so empowering to see someone of her stardom, who makes the bulk of her fortune by being pretty, come out about such a personal thing. She swears by Sally Hansen Airbrush Legs Spray to hide her skin rash for those red carpet moments, so that’s a lead for you!

Kris Jenner

She was only diagnosed with psoriasis at the age of 30 and likely passed the inherited disease to her daughter. Apparently, her symptoms were so mild that Kim Kardashian had no idea how debilitating it could be until she suffered the worst of it. The symptoms and triggers of psoriasis vary with each individual, but experts have identified stress and poor dietary habits as prime suspects.

Cyndi Lauper

Her first encounter with the disease was a scalp flare up during a concert tour that eventually spread to other parts of her body. She is now a passionate supporter of the National Psoriasis Foundation in the United States and speaks about her private struggles with psoriasis through awareness and education campaigns.

Cara Delevingne

Her modeling career is at its peak. When she debuted as an actress in Suicide Squad, the media photographs showed visible skin rashes on her back and arms, which were the untimely symptoms of a flare-up since first contracting the disease in 2013 during a stressful stint at Paris Fashion Week. She rocked it for the world to see; so why shouldn’t you?

LeAnn Rimes

Who could forget the two-time Grammy-winning songbird? Diagnosed at the age of two, she grew up with self-esteem issues and was even reluctant to wear short dresses to highly publicised events. She is now clear of skin rashes thanks to medication and healthy lifestyle choices; proving that you can take steps to suppress it.
