There's no doubt that great lipsticks and glosses make lips look fuller, fresher, softer and younger. That touch of colour enlivens your entire complexion, too. Yet, there may be a hidden drawback. Instead of protecting lips, there's now concern that some hydrating glosses and shiny lip balms actually magnify the action of UV rays, increasing their penetration into the skin and raising the risk of lip cancer. I recommend using lipsticks and glosses which have sun protection in their formula. I love Susan Posnick Mineral Lipsticks which hydrate and condition lips, provide natural broad-spectrum UV protection - and look absolutely sensational.
