Men need to care for their lips to protect them from sunburn, skin cancers, and excessive dryness and chapping, which can leave them prone to infections. The best way to care for lips is to use a lip balm that contains a sunscreen with a sun protection factor (SPF) of 15 or higher, and emollients to keep lips moist and supple and less prone to infection. If you have a problem with your lips that persists, see your dermatologist.
