Should men use lip balm?

Dr. Mehmet Oz, MD

Everyone should use a lip balm with a sun protection factor (SPF) of at least 15. Look for broad-spectrum coverage, meaning the lip balm protects against both UVA and UVB rays. Apply the lip balm about 30 minutes before you go outside in the sun. Take your lip balm with you and reapply it every two hours or more often if you are swimming. Talk to your dermatologist for more information.
