Reality Star Brandi Glanville Opens Up about Battle with Psoriasis
“Real Housewives of Beverly Hills” star Brandi Glanville revealed she does not like talking about her skin condition because it causes a breakout.
Brandi Glanville openly talked about her painful experience regarding her skin condition Psoriasis during an interview with People.
"I don't like talking about my Psoriasis too much because it can cause a breakout. I try to keep my mind busy. It is 100 percent stress-induced, the former model shared.

Glanville has been dealing with the condition since she was younger, but it has never bothered her. However, when she returned to the reality show in 2020, the drama caused a flare-up.
The reality star initially left the Bravo series back in 2016 and revealed when she was shooting last year, the condition spread to her face for the first time, saying:
"Usually, it was on my body or arms or my scalp, and I could hide it, but you can't do that when it's in the middle of your face."

Being back on the show while going back and forth with fellow star Denise Richards, their hostility contributed to her stress level, adding she had forgotten how draining it could be to be on the show.
More so when the pandemic hit, Glanville's condition worsened. She shared that she thought the world was ending, so the situation took its toll on her.
THAT SOCIAL MEDIA POST
On November 13, the 48-year-old shared a picture of herself on her Instagram, which displayed a raw and real look at her struggle with Psoriasis.
Glanville captioned her post, saying she was sharing something scary, noting the condition was taking over her face and that she was depressed about it. She added that she was glad she could hide it by wearing a mask.
In March this year, the California native appeared on Australia's "The Morning Show where her face looked noticeably different, which led to the speculation that she had plastic surgery.
But she shut down the rumors on Twitter by sharing a photo of her badly burned and scabbed face, with patches of redness and blisters.
Glanville explained that she experienced 2nd-degree burns in December, which occurred after accidentally burning herself with a Psoriasis light, and that she was still recovering from the burns.
She emphasized that she did not want to address the issue but that since the Daily Mail had stated otherwise, she had to set the record straight and defend herself by reluctantly sharing her painful experience.
