When it comes to sunscreen and sun protection, a lot of people don’t think about their lips. For many, they may either rub their sunscreen all across their face or, and probably more commonly, rub it on their face and skip their lips.

Wearing SPF on your lips is important because it can protect you from skin cancer and various signs of aging. However, your lips are probably not the first thing you’re thinking about when you think of skin cancer prevention!
