5. How do healthy lips affect my oral care?
Taking care of your mouth quite literally starts at your lips! If your lips are sunburned, tender or swollen, doing your regular brushing and flossing is not going to be fun. Worse than that, lip cancer would have a major impact on your oral health. Protecting your lips in the sun is an easy way to ensure that your mouth stays happy and healthy.
To recap, use an SPF lip balm regularly to protect your lips from sunburn, harmful cancer-causing radiation, and maybe even prevent some of those sun-exposure lip wrinkles. Drink lots of water to stay hydrated in the heat and treat any sunburns immediately. Now that you're armed with answers about keeping your lips healthy and protected, you can help friends and family do the same!
