Severe sensitivity to sun, dark circles. Why?

I am extremely sensitive to sun. I do use sunscreen but my job is outdoorsy and its not enough just to put on the lotion, it seems. Please suggest. I also have dark circles under my eyes and though they reduce with good sleep and excercise, they never completely go away. What can i do? I take my iron and vitamin supplement (including vitamin E ) regularly.

Hello and Welcome to HCM,
Thanks for writing to us.
Sun exposure can aggravate pigmentation.Keeping the sunprotection is important to treat hyperpigmentation. Use sunscreen with SPF 50.
Effective oral and topical medications are now available for Hyperpigmentation around eye.
My advise to you would be to use topical Glyaha cream with good moisturizer.
Take vitamin C tablets daily.
Hope this helps you.
Wishing you good health...

welcome to healthcare magic forum
if your skin is sensitive and sun exposure is there,you need to use physical sunscreen containing zinc oxide .
apply it before 20 minutes of sunexposure
anti oxidant tab will more work than just iron and vitamin tab
drink plenty of water and take fruits and green vegs
i hope i answered your question
