The Glossy Lipstick

What kind of lipstick do you use? Do you like it matte or glossy? While it's true that your favorite gloss may be the ultimate summer accessory, you may be taking a greater risk. Research shows that glosses and shimmery balms can actually boost the risk of cancer by allowing ultraviolet rays to penetrate more deeply.

"When light shines on dry or rough skin, it scatters. But if your skin is nice and smooth which you normally gets when applying a shiny gloss, the rays will be absorbed."

You can still use lip protection but experts suggest using lip balms with sunblock. So the next time you're buying lipstick, ditch the glossy one and opt for an SPF 15, chemical-free instead.
