Allergic to the sun? There are still ways to enjoy it!
For those with sun allergies or photosensitivity the sun quickly becomes an enemy. If you tend to avoid the outdoors, you may actual feel worse next time you step outside or if you have only recently started experiencing rashes after sun exposure, it could be linked to prescription medicines. While unfortunately photosensitivity requires you to be extra vigilant outdoors, especially in summer, there are extra steps you can take to protect your skin. Together with the following tips and implementing your own routine, you can enjoy the sun regularly. Take note of your symptoms The amount of sun required for a reaction varies greatly so it’s important to establish how long your reactions take to form and how much time you were outside before they appeared. Don’t forget, some symptoms may not appear until a couple of days after sun exposure. Avoid the midday sun While this is a general sun safe rule that should be followed regardless of allergies, for those with photosensitivity this is particularly important. Be skincare aware Photosensitivity can be triggered by what you put on your skin. Creams, fragrances and even sunscreen can be the culprit. If you have a sun allergy don’t just use any sunscreen. Choose a lotion that protects against both of the sun’s UVA and UVB rays and don’t forget to protect your lips with lip balm that contains SPF. Cover up It’s important to remember that many light fabrics don’t provide enough protection against the sun’s rays. However, fashionable skin-protective clothing does exist! Aquacozzie’s Jay long sleeve rashie provides UV50+ protection for ultimate piece of mind. While photosensitivity can feel debilitating, if you take care and listen to your body you are well on your way to enjoying your time outdoors.
