Missing Your Lip Balm & Lipstick?

During the age of the CoronaVirus19 those of us who like lip balm and lipstick have found it rather annoying to leave it on our masks.

It may seem that this issue is really connected to our ‘vanity’, so I thought I would check why we like lip balm, and whether there is a reason to wear it more than to support our vanity.  It turns out that I was in for a surprise. One reason to wear lip balm is to protect your lips from the sun (it is important to wear one that has SPF protection of 15 or better).  Keep in mind that in addition, lipstick  is not equal to lip balm.  In fact, you should put lip balm underneath your lipstick as a protective base.
