These 3 Drugs Are DESTROYING Your Skin

Dear Reader,

It can happen so fast it’ll make your head spin.

You head out to the garden to pull a couple of weeds… or take the dog for a 10-minute walk around the block.

And the next thing you know, you’re covered in the worst… most painful… sunburn of your life.

But don’t blame the sun… blame that bottle of Big Pharma pills in your medicine cabinet.

Because three of the most popular types of drugs around come with a frightening side effect most folks have never been warned about.

And they could put you on the fast track to serious skin damage… and even cancer.

If no doctor has ever talked to you about drug-induced photosensitivity, trust me, you’re not alone.

It’s one of those nasty side effects that the drug companies – and the mainstream medical establishment – don’t like to discuss much.

Certain types of drugs can make your skin so sensitive to the sun that you’ll look like you spent a week camping on Mercury or Venus.

And it’s not only a threat in the summer months.

Any amount of UV exposure can trigger a reaction that can leave you with serious sunburn, sun poisoning, or even the type of skin damage that can lead to cancer!

Reactions can happen within minutes, hours, or even days… sometimes even 72 hours after exposure!

So why aren’t more people warned? Well, it all comes down to dollars… and LOTS of them.

The drugs most likely to cause photosensitivity are some of the best sellers around – including antidepressants, mood stabilizers, and antibiotics.

We’re talking about BILLIONS of dollars in sales here – and Big Pharma isn’t going to upset that apple cart, even if they have to scald your skin in the process.

How do you avoid this horrific threat?

Always make sure you read the warnings on any drugs you’re taking – especially if you’re prescribed anything in the three categories I mentioned.

The drug companies like to bury their warnings in the fine print, betting you’ll never read it.

And take extra precautions to keep yourself safe from the sun. Wear protective clothing or invest in a quality sunscreen.

Just avoid sunscreens that contain oxybenzone and retinyl palmitate, which can both promote skin cancer.
