Tips To Protect Your Lips From Sun Damage.
How To Keep Your Luscious Pout
It is important to keep lips soft, smooth, hydrated and healthy to protect them from sun damage. Applying lip balm with SPF 15 and continually drinking water can help protect your lips against UV rays. However, do not just apply an SPF lip balm on sunny days. It is important to protect your lips every day, even if its cloudy. UV rays penetrate through cloudy skies!
Also, if you're outside make sure to apply and reapply at least once every two hours.
Products For Healthy-Looking Lips
For sun protection, opt for a lip balm that has an indicated SPF 15 or higher to keep your lips smooth with long-lasting moisturization.
Lipsticks that are shiny or contain high gloss with little-to-no color are harmful to your lips because they can direct UV rays to the area.
Lip gloss, like high-shine lipsticks, acts as a reflector for the sun's ray and those without an SPF can increase your chances of developing sun damage.
Tip 1: If your lips become dry and start to peel, use some sugar and olive oil to exfoliate your skin and remove the accumulated dead skin cells.
Tip 2: Look for a lip product that has a base of beeswax, petroleum jelly, or paraffin. These products will seal moisture and stay on your lips longer in comparison to thinner balms and glosses.
Tip 3: Ditch the lip gloss and switch to a matte lip product with an SPF.
Tip 4: If you need to stick with lip gloss, apply a colored lipstick to your lips first and then add some shine. A colored lipstick with an SPF product is your best bet.
Tip 5: Opt for a lip gloss product with a minimum of SPF 30.
