Ever wonder why you might burn even if you wear sunscreen? You could be photosensitive! Photosensitivity is a condition that causes your skin to be more sensitive to sunlight, meaning it will have more intense reactions when exposed to UV rays. It can be caused by medication, certain beauty products, as a symptom of illness, and can even be inherited.
Don’t know if you’re photosensitive? Talk to your doctor if you notice your skin is having difficulty avoiding a burn, even with protective lotion and moderated UV exposure.
Remember, sunburn is your skin’s way of letting you know that something isn’t going right in the tanning process. Better to be safe than sorry!
