Don’t Forget Your Lips This Summer

11 July 2019 By collins

I hope everyone is looking forward to the warmer months! With the Spring / Summer seasons just around the corner, I thought I could provide a timely reminder to protect your lips from sun damage.

According to the Cancer Council, 80% of all new cancers diagnosed in Australia each year are skin cancers. There is no doubt our UV is intense, and lips are vulnerable to getting sunburnt just like the rest of your skin.  What can you do?

  • Wear a hat
  • Put on lip balm with a high SPF
  • Have a regular dental exam – my exams always include a cancer screen of your lips and inside your mouth

Get in touch with Collins Precision Dental for an examination today.
