Visible radiation (HEV)
Penetrates much deeper into the skin than both UVA and UVB radiation. It induces oxidative stress, weakens the epidermal barrier, exacerbates hyper pigmentation and damages the extracellular matrix.

Frequently Asked Questions about sunscreen for vitiligo
Many people use sunscreen to protect their skin. We have listed the most frequently asked questions about the use of sunscreen for vitiligo below, if you have any other questions please feel free to contact us at firstname.lastname@example.org
It is quite a difficult question, you can answer it with Yes and No. First if you sunbathe your “normal” skin will get a tan. Your vitiligo spots remain white. Therefore it might look like the vitiligo has gone worse. But it hasn’t, it just became more visible by the difference in colour.
If you sunburn extremely, it might cause damage to your skin. Damaged skin is more vulnerable to vitiligo, so in some cases sun could make vitiligo worse. However if you are careful not to cause sunburn, there is no reason to avoid the sun.
Yes, sunlight can be good for vitiligo. Moderate exposure to sunlight (or UVB light therapy) can bring the pigment back into the white spots.
There is no evidence that lack of vitamin D can cause vitiligo. The relationship between vitamin D and vitiligo should be investigated more thoroughly to know the exact effect of vitamin D on vitiligo.
It is best to use a high protection sunscreen to ensure that your white spots are not sunburned. A very good protection is the Coverderm sunscreen that protects for all 4 different types of sun rays. It is also waterproof and lasts for the entire day.
The good news is: Yes you can!
You should always be careful not to burn while sunbathing.
- Expose your vitiligo spots to the sun for up to 30 minutes (start with 5 minutes and extend this up to 30 minutes daily)
- Use a high protection sunscreen such as Coverderm sunscreen after the 30 minutes.
- Do not expose your skin to the sun in the middle of the day when the UV index is highest.
If you suffer from vitiligo, any skin damage might expand the vitiligo. So therefore it is important not to have your skin sunburned.
Yes, it is possible to tan with vitiligo. However, the ‘normal’ skin will always tan faster, so in the beginning you will notice an increase in the difference in colour between the tanned skin and the vitiligo spots.
