Photosensitivity

This term is often used to describe the skin’s tolerance to UV rays. All skin is photosensitive but some skins can react badly when exposed to direct sunlight, presenting in many forms from dermatitis to severe burning.

Certain diseases, illnesses, medication and products can increase skin’s photosensitivity so it is important to always wear an SPF and avoid the sun’s rays for prolonged periods of time.
