Dryness is the most common cause of lip problem. Exposure from the sun rays dries the lips and can even trigger sunburn. A lip balm with sunscreen can help shield your lips from the heat of the sun. So if you find yourself always under the sun, or if you are heading out to the beach, keep a lip balm with sunscreen with you. See that the balm contains SPF 4 or higher.

      Your hub taught me that a medicated lip balm is available in the market. Luckily, I don't have the so-called lip problems, but such information is worth sharing with others.

      Just like most women out there, I'm also a big fan of lip balms. I use some flavored and glittered stuff from Victoria Secret and I often bring it wherever I go. Applying lip balms to me is a way to increase my self confidence. I'd compensate for the lips what I can't for beauty. Lol.

      Thanks for sharing this informative read. :)
