Baths for psoriasis are your best bet and you can kick it up a notch or two with Dead Sea Salts.
There have been several studies which all concluded Dead Sea Salts having the greatest success for psoriasis treatment. This is due to the higher mineral content of chloride and bromide in salts from the Dead Sea.
You can use Epsom Salt as well but again, Dead Sea Salts are more effective as a psoriasis home remedy.
When you purchase Dead Sea salts, be careful not to buy salts that are processed or cleaned. Most bath salts you will find have been treated and during the process the essential minerals are removed, along with their therapeutic properties.

Also, it's best to add fragrance yourself instead of choosing pre-scented salts.
Commercial fragrances contain chemicals that can irritate your skin condition.
Baths for psoriasis: Take 3-4 tepid (hot could aggravate the psoriasis) baths per week, soaking for 20 mins.
