Why you should NEVER wear lip gloss in the sun

A dermatologist has issued a warning about the importance of protecting lips with SPF, explaining how neglecting to wear appropriate products can lead to severe burns, and even skin cancer.

New York-based skin expert Dr. Whitney Bowe revealed to DailyMail.com ‘most people don’t realize that your lips can become sunburned’ just like your skin, while explaining that UV damage to your pout can lead to skin cancer, which is ‘aggressive and prone to spreading’.

But despite the danger of going without a lip SPF, Dr. Bowe said that many people still aren’t aware of the risks, noting: ‘It is very important to protect your lips from sun damage [but] lips are often neglected when it comes to sun protection.’
