You are wearing the hottest sunglasses, the skin is radiant and glowing, the outfit is complimenting to your figure, and the much needed and deserving manicure & pedicure is fresh. You hop in the car driving 80 down the freeway, with the anticipation of meeting your Boo for lunch. You arrive, step out the car to meet your Boo and greet him with a kiss...Once you move in for the kiss, your Boo stops and yells, "DANG BABY, WHY YO LIPS LOOK LIKE THAT?!" HUH?
Your Boo is alarmed by the lesions (blisters) on your lips, which is squamous cell carcinoma, the second most common skin cancer in the U.S.; due to the fact that you failed to apply sunscreen.
When it comes to applying sunscreen to your skin, the lips should not be overlooked. Chronic sunlight, exposed to your skin and lips unprotected is a major environmental risk factor. Squamous cell carcinoma cancer, can be treated by excision and Mohn surgery;however, the skin cancer is preventable by applying a lip balm with SPF 15.
So, Queens, when you are applying the latest lip line from Chanel, L'Oreal, MAC, Bobbi Brown, Cover Girl and Maybelline, don't forget the 2 dollas and forty-nine cents SPF 15 sunscreen lip balm.
