Exposure to sunlight can help address the symptoms of mild to moderate psoriasis. More extensive cases may call for UVA or UVB treatment (see Phototherapy).
Effect of Sunlight on Psoriasis
Sunlight helps treat psoriasis by suppressing the immune system (activated T cells) in the skin, thus reducing inflammation and slowing the rapid growth of skin cells.

How to Use Sunlight
People with mild to moderate psoriasis may benefit from short, daily doses of sunlight.
As we all know, when it comes to sunlight, there can be too much of a good thing. Overexposure to sunlight can lead to skin damage and skin cancer. You should always check with your doctor or dermatologist before self-treating with sunlight or any other therapy for psoriasis.
