Don’t Forget Your Lips!

Don’t Forget Your Lips this summer

I hope everyone is enjoying the start of 2017.  With summer in full swing, I thought I could provide a timely reminder to protect your lips from sun damage.

According to the Cancer Council, 80% of all new cancers diagnosed in Australia each year are skin cancers. There is no doubt our UV is intense, and lips are vulnerable to getting sunburnt just like the rest of your skin.  What can you do?

  • Wear a hat
  • Put on lip balm with a high SPF
  • Have a regular dental exam – my exams always include a cancer screen of your lips and inside your mouth
