Frequently asked questions

What are the symptoms of sun allergy?

Sun allergies are very common, especially among young women and people with fair skin. The most common form of sun allergy is Polymorphus Light Eruption (often abbreviated to PLE). Typical symptoms include a bumpy and irritating rash and skin redness but you may also get blisters and pustules. Symptoms tend to develop a day or two after being in the sun and are normally on the underside of the arms and the chest − facial skin can be affected, but this is less common.

Other sun allergies include Acne Aestevalis (more commonly known as Mallorca acne). The symptoms of Acne Aestevalis closely resemble those of PLE. It typically affects women between 25 and 40 who experienced acne during puberty.

You can read about these allergies as well as how to care for allergy-prone skin in sun allergies: PLE and others.

How can I avoid getting sun-stressed skin in the first place?

Sun, in moderation, is good for our overall wellbeing, but unprotected and excessive exposure to the sun’s rays can have both short- and long-term consequences which include sunburn, photoaging (premature skin aging caused by the sun) and even skin cancer.

Limiting your and your child’s exposure, and always wearing adequate protection, are essential steps in caring for skin in the sun. Facial sun protection should also be considered part of your daily skincare routine, because it’s not just holiday sun that can damage skin.

Here are some of the golden rules of sun protection:

  • Choose a product that has been specially formulated for your sun allergy-prone skin and that offers the level of protection that you need
  • Apply generously before sun exposure and reapply frequently− especially after swimming, perspiring or toweling − to maintain the original protection
  • Be careful not to miss any areas that will be exposed
  • Remember that reducing the quantity you use will significantly lower the level of protection
  • Don`t stay in the sun for too long, even when using a sunscreen product −  remember that skin damage can occur well before sunburn is visible
  • Over-exposure to the sun is a serious health threat
  • Keep babies and young children out of direct sunlight


You can find out more about how to care for skin in the sun in the effect of sun on skin: prevention and protection and the effect of sun on children’s skin. If you are in any doubt about how your skin is likely to react to the sun, or what level of protection you should be using, ask a dermatologist for advice.

Does skin that’s prone to sun allergies need special sun protection?

Like sensitive skin, allergy-prone skin has a weakened protective barrier making it more vulnerable to external irritants. One of those external irritants is the sun. Certain chemicals − such as perfumes − can also trigger a reaction in sensitive, allergy-prone skin. Eucerin Sun Creme-Gel Sun Allergy Protect SPF 50 gives skin prone to sun allergies the high level of protection it needs. It also contains antioxidants that soothe skin and strengthen skin´s own protection system against UVA-induced free radicals, helping to prevent the formation of sun allergies.

Eucerin Sun Superior sun protection tailored to skin conditions

Eucerin Sun products offer comprehensive protection against sun-induced skin damage.

The innovative Advanced Spectral Technology combines broad-band and photostable UVA/UVB filters¹ for reliable UV protection with antioxidant Licochalcone A for high-energy visible (HEVIS) light defence. Glycyrrhetinic Acid provides additional DNA protection.²

The superior sun protection range includes products that are tailored to individual skin needs and contain active ingredients for specific skin conditions:

 - If your skin is oily and/or blemish-prone, the formula containing sebum-regulating Oil Control Technology with lipid-absorbing pigments leaves an immediate dry touch finish and has a long-lasting anti-shine effect.

- If your primary skin concern is premature ageing, the Photoageing products with short- and long-chain Hyaluronic Acid will visibly reduce the signs of skin ageing.

- If your skin is prone to sun allergies, the Sun Protection and After Sun formulas with Alpha-Glucosylrutin will help to prevent sun-induced allergies such as PLE.

The range also includes Eucerin Kids Sun products (which have been specially formulated to soothe and protect your child’s sensitive and delicate skin) as well as both adult and children’s products that are suitable for atopic skin. 

Eucerin Sun products are available in a range of medium, high and very high SPFs. All are clinically and dermatologically proven to be both highly effective and well tolerated by sensitive skin.

1  Meeting the highest standards for UVA and UVB protection as defined by Cosmetics Europe.  The levels of UVA protection are higher than the EU requirement. 
2  Eucerin Sun Lotion Extra Light Sensitive Protect, Eucerin Sun Spray Sensitive Protect, Eucerin Sun Spray Transparent Sensitive Protect and Eucerin Sun Spray Transparent Dry Touch do not contain Glycyrrhetinic Acid.
