Dear Beauty Brains,
Does lip gloss cause skin cancer on lips - also if it is worn over an SPF 15 (or higher) lip balm would that reduce the SPF protection ?
After a couple of nasty episodes of sunburnt lips when I was about 10-11 years old I'm vigilant in protecting them from the harsh Aussie sun all year round. I usually wear a SPF15 (or higher) lip balm and then lipstick, however sometimes I do wear a lip gloss over a SPF lip balm.
The sunburnt lips were very painful and I don't wish to go through that again, not to mention skin cancer.
Here are some links:
Here they say that SPF lip balm underneath is OK even though there is gloss and shine on lips.
