Santa Says: Lip Balms, Sunscreens Make Ideal Stocking Stuffers

If you’re in need of some stocking-stuffer ideas, consider lip balms and sunscreens for your loved ones.
Lawrence A. Mark, M.D., Ph.D., assistant professor of dermatology at the Indiana University School of Medicine and a researcher with the Indiana University Melvin and Bren Simon Cancer Center, said these make ideal gifts because people often forget to protect their skin and lips during the winter when the sun’s rays aren’t as direct.
“You can’t see the sun’s ultraviolet rays, you can’t feel them, but some of them can harm you,” Dr. Mark said.
