Are your lips shielded from the sun? Although many people are aware of the risks of UV damage to the skin, 70% of beachgoers use no lip protection according to a recent study by the Skin Cancer Foundation. Furthermore, the actual SPF provided by lip block is nearly always lower than the number on the label because the balm isn’t applied thickly or frequently enough.
The current state of lip cancer in the United States is rife with good news and bad news. While the lip cancer survival and cure rate is high, this form of cancer (along with skin cancer as a whole) is increasing dramatically. Often overlooked, a lack of sun protection, regular tobacco and alcohol consumption are factors in the development of lip cancer.
