Does Lip Gloss Damage Your Oral Health?
While using lip gloss may seem like a harmless way to spruce up your smile, have you ever considered its impact on your oral health?

While the data is still not concrete, there is some evidence that wearing lip gloss on a regular basis can contribute to skin cancer. This could be because the gloss actually intensifies the effects of the sun’s UV rays, much like tanning oil, but the increased effect is most likely minimal.

If you are going to be outdoors for an extended period of time (even if it’s cloudy out), consider a lip balm with SPF to protect your lips from UV rays and the elements, and save lip gloss for more special occasions.
