Lips have very little protection from UV damage. Lip skin is uniquely delicate and needs your help to stay healthy over the course of your life.
Why is it so important to protect your lips from the sun?
- Because lip skin cancer is aggressive. The lower lip is especially at risk because it gets significant UV exposure. The use of tobacco products puts lips at even greater risk of lip cancer.
- Sun damage causes lips to loose the pink rosy color of youth. Atrophy causes lip wrinkles.
- Actinic cheilitis (lip sun damage) can lead to fragile lips prone to splitting, peeling and even infection
What are the best lip sunscreens?
- Mineral zinc oxide provides the best broad spectrum protection in my dermatologist’s opinion. It’s what I wear.
- Lip sunscreens made with hypoallergenic bases are important. That’s because lip allergic rashes act like chronic chapped lips leading you to an addiction to the very lip balm that’s causing the problem.
- Non-toxic lip sunscreen products are important too because you basically eat your lip sunscreen.
