Protect your skin from the sun without chemical UV filters
Some cancer treatments can cause photosensitivity. Photosensitivity is 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, and how to take care of your skin, but we've selected some products that can help protect your skin from the sun naturally, without chemical UV filters.
