Shiny lip balms and glosses could boost the risk of skin cancer, a dermatologist has warned.

Christine White of Baylor University Medical Center at Dallas says the glossiness of such lip coatings may attract ultraviolet sun rays, increasing the chance for getting skin cancer, HealthDay reports.

Funny this report was done in TX--when I think of shiny lip gloss I always think Texas!

I have one now two sores on my lower lip. At first I thought it was a burn from eating hot lasagna. I'm scheduling a dermatologist appointment today.

I never used shiny lip gloss and I have had most of my lower lip develop sun-damaged skin. Not to the point of an actual cancer but damaged. I use 5-Fluoruocil (sp?) cream every other year on my face to catch sun-damaged skin before it becomes cancerous. MY lower lip always explodes with the burning of the bad spots.

Charles, I have found the the area between the nostrils and upper lip and the lower lip is the worst. Either it is more sensitive or I didn't get enough sunscreen on it - or I sweated/wiped it off too much,
