What type of lip gloss should I use?

Dr. Mehmet Oz, MD

Steer clear of any products that list petroleum jelly or mineral oil on the ingredient list. Choose glosses that look more like lipstick, and avoid any that advertise lip "plumping" capabilities. They contain products that irritate your lips to make them swell and look larger. Instead, select products with sunscreen to protect your lips from the carcinogenic effects of the sun (look for zinc oxide on the ingredient list), and glosses made from beeswax, which is completely non-toxic. If you are deeply attached to a petroleum-based gloss, save it for special occasions, and use a sunscreen under it to protect your lips.
