Protect yourself from the sun

I’ve been told to protect
my skin from the sun. Why?

Certain treatments increase your skin’s sensitivity to the sun. You are therefore more prone to suburns and burning sensations. Even mild sun exposure can lead to unsightly dark spots that persist over time.

To avoid the sun, I’ve started going out early in the morning with a hat and shawl just in case, and I wear sunscreen. I even try to be careful in the car. Without my lashes, my eyes are more sensitive, so I have to wear sunglasses all the time.

Our advice

Comprehensive prevention

  • Whenever possible, avoid exposing your skin, even to weak sunshine.
  • Make sure you always wear clothes that cover your skin, together with a hat and sunglasses.
  • Apply sunscreen with a high sun protection factor (SPF 50+) that is waterproof and perspiration-resistant, hypoallergenic and fragrance-free.
  • Reapply every 2 hours, or more often in case of water activities or perspiring.

Did you know?

  • UV rays cause sunburn and lead to premature damage of the different skin layers.
  • The effect of UV rays on certain molecules present in the skin can causa photosensitization.
  • Glass surfaces, such as your car windows, do not totally block UV rays.
