The effect of sun on acne

The effect of sun on acne
The truth is that UV radiation helps in the production of melanin, which helps to improve the appearance of the skin and cover skin imperfections. The skin initially becomes drier and less red, thus reducing the appearance of oiliness, shine and inflammation that are a common problem of oily and acne-prone skin.However, prolonged exposure to the sun, without proper protection, leads to the opposite effect. The skin can create hyperkeratosis, as a result of which the pores of the skin become blocked. This in turn, leads to more sebum production to balance the dryness caused by sun exposure, while the bacterium responsible for P.Acnes overgrows.
The solution for acne prone skin
Those with oily skin and acne should use special sunscreens with light compositions, which do not burden the skin and are non-caesogenic.


Mesopen is an alternative form of mesotherapy. It helps the penetration of active substances, creating portals of entry into the skin barrier with the creation of controlled micronulls, thanks to its specially designed head (pen with 12 tiny titanium pins), without obvious skin injury. Through this mechanism of action, the penetration capacity of the active substances increases.
