Default sun exposure

Hi,
My daughter has a lower lip H and has had 5 lasers treatments. I was wondering about her being out in the sun this summer. Do I need to do anything else besides sunscreen and a hat to protect the H from sun exposure? Is there any sunscreen that is best?
Or should she not go in the sun, even with a hat and protection? Any feedback will be helpful. Thank you. Jennifer

Avoid sun as much as possible. Yes, use sunscreen high SPF.
