Summertime Sun Exposure Can 'Burn' Acne Sufferers in More Ways than One
Date:6/30/2009

New convenience kit can help patients get the most out of treatment during the summer months and beyond

DOYLESTOWN, Pa., June 30 /PRNewswire/ -- For most people, the arrival of summer means more time outdoors, with trips to the beach, pool parties and other outdoor activities. What can be more enjoyable than soaking up the sun and having fun with friends? But for those who suffer from acne, the summertime can actually mean a worsening of symptoms and the need for extra care for their skin.

Many acne sufferers falsely believe that sun exposure can be beneficial for their condition. This misconception is not entirely based on myth -- minimal amounts of sun exposure may initially improve the appearance of acne. However, this exposure over time can actually make acne worse by increasing oil production, damaging follicular walls and clogging pores, resulting in exacerbations that may not surface for several weeks after sun exposure.

On top of this misconception, acne patients may also be at risk for increased sun sensitivity and skin damage if they are on an acne treatment -- many prescription and over-the-counter products recommend avoiding sun exposure because these products may make the skin considerably more vulnerable to the damaging effects of UV rays. So, what can acne patients do to help treat and protect themselves during the summer months and beyond?

Luckily, there is a new convenience kit available that can help acne sufferers get the most out of their treatment. With one prescription, the Avidoxy(TM) DK defence kit provides patients with the convenience of three products to help attack acne from the inside out. The kit includes Avidoxy (Doxycycline Tablets), which provides the active prescription ingredient trusted as adjunctive therapy for severe acne to eradicate bacteria and reduce inflammation, along with two additional non-prescription products free-of-charge:
