Lip or face sunscreen?

Just had stitches removed from my bottom lip to just under my lip (smack in the middle). I was told to put sunscreen to protect from the sun. Do I use face sunscreen protector or lip sunscreen protector on the part that is just off my lip?

Sunscreen for face/lip after suture removal

After suture removal from your lower lip area, I would recommend facial sunscreen for the the part below your lip on the skin and a lip balm with sunscreen in it on the lip portion.
