Protect Your Pout

“I use SPF lip balm, but it wears off so quickly. I’m worried I’ll get skin cancer on the unseen borders of my lips, and then my vigilance will have been for nothing. “

Melanie, Real Simple contributing editor in Springfield, New Jersey

The derm says: “Apply your normal sunscreen to your lips too, and carry an SPF lip balm for frequent reapplication. There are even tinted lip stains with SPF now.”
