Can I Take Medications While Tanning ?
Certain drugs, foods, perfumes, and cosmetics may contain ingredients that could
make your skin super-sensitive when exposed to ultraviolet light, whether
tanning indoors or outdoors in the sun. It is usually best to remove cosmetics
and perfumes before tanning.
Before starting a new medication or changing a prescription, it is always best
to refer to the guidelines or consult with your physician or pharmacist
regarding potential effects of the medication when exposed to sunlight or
tanning lamps. Some medications may contain "photosensitizing" agents that,
when exposed to ultraviolet light, could cause a skin irritation or rash.
Tetracycline and Retin-A, drugs widely used for the treatment of acne and some
birth control pills are a few of the medications known to have the potential to
be photosensitive. While you may not necessarily experience a reaction from the
medication, it is always best to be aware that a reaction could exist.
