Sun Safety

Some cancer treatment can make your skin more sensitive to the sun

Some cancer treatments can cause photosensitivity which is a heightened skin sensitivity or an unusual reaction when your skin is exposed to UV radiation from sunlight. Photosensitivity reduces your natural defences and elevates your risk for damage from the sun’s harmful rays. Everyone’s response to sunlight after treatment is different, but even if you normally tolerate sunlight well, you may be at risk now.

Your healthcare team should advise which treatments may cause UV sensitivity, but it's important to protect your skin from the sun, whether you are going through cancer treatment or not, so we've selected some natural sun care products, without chemical UV filters.
