Contraceptive, painkillers and other remedies that may cause allergies to the sun.

During the period of active sun, many face photosensitization or, in other words, increased skin sensitivity to sunlight. After a rest, redness, rash and itching may appear on the body and face. This is the so-called allergy to the sun, the symptoms of which sometimes appear immediately, and sometimes – in a few hours or on the second or third day after sunburn. Such a reaction of the body usually occurs in people with weak immunity. But there are other reasons for photosensitivity.Antibiotics
Taking a number of antibiotics can increase skin sensitivity to UV radiation. Staying in the active sun during their use can lead to photoallergic and phototoxic reactions, manifested in the form of burns, itching, rash, redness and persistent pigmentation.

Painkillers
While taking painkillers it is also desirable to limit exposure to the open sun, since in this case phototoxic reactions are possible, such as serious burns and persistent redness. But if the burns have already formed, the use of painkillers will help reduce pain and cope with the inflammatory process.

Retinoids
Currently, derivatives of vitamin A are part of many medical products used to combat acne, and retinol is used in the production of most anti-aging care products. However, during rest in places with increased insolation, retinoids are quite dangerous and even after short-term sun exposure can cause severe forms of sunburn or prolonged allergic dermatitis.

Perfumery
During the rest, especially while on the beach, you should not use perfumed products. Many of them contain natural oils and extracts of various plants, greatly enhancing the skin’s sensitivity to UV radiation and leading to the formation of persistent pigmentation, which is difficult to get rid of.

Oral contraceptives
Modern hormonal contraceptives contain the minimum amount of sex hormones. Despite this, they can significantly increase the sensitivity of melanocytes to the sun. Under the influence of active solar radiation, the cells synthesizing the pigment can be activated, thereby causing persistent pigmentation. Moreover, in this case, the risk of malignant degeneration of moles increases greatly. Therefore, while taking contraceptives tan is not recommended.

UV filters
Some UV filters can cause photodermatitis. People with sensitive skin and especially children up to three years old are recommended to use protective equipment containing physical filters such as titanium dioxide or zinc oxide. They can also be found under the name of mineral filters, they are safe and effectively reflect the sun’s rays. But it has a high density and may be noticeable on the skin. After bathing, reapply sunscreen.

What treatments will help protect the skin during the active sun period
Cosmetology procedures such as biorevitalization and mesotherapy will help to prepare for rest, as well as restore the skin after photodamage to the maximum. Hyaluronic acid will fill the skin with moisture, prevent its dehydration due to exposure to the sun and salt water, strengthen its immunity and have a pronounced anti-inflammatory effect. And the additional components that make up the injection preparation (peptides, vitamins, antioxidants) will help to avoid pigmentation or quickly eliminate it in case of occurrence. Preparation for vacation is better to start in advance. It is enough to conduct 1-2 procedures of biorevitalization not less than 2 weeks before the planned rest to prevent the negative impact of climatic factors. And do not forget to use SPF filters with the maximum degree of protection from the sun! But you can restore and moisturize the skin without delay, but immediately in the coming days after returning home. Thus, the negative effects of the sun will be neutralized as quickly as possible.
