Let's face it, sunlight makes us feel better. We long for the sunshine when we've dealt with cloudy, rainy days. We easily associate sun exposure with skin cancer, but did you know the sun's rays can also cause lip cancer?
People who have jobs working outside are more prone to developing lip cancer and should use UV protection. The next time you are shopping for sunscreen, head on over to the chapstick area and choose one with good UV protection. Don't forget to choose the proper sunscreen levels for your small ones as well.
We want you to enjoy the summer months, but we also want you to be safe doing so. Small precautions such as UV chapstick can save you from weeks of painful therapy treatments.
So go ahead and get excited to be outside, just make sure you are protected! Afterall, we want you to enjoy many more summers in the future as well!
