Three SPF Balms That Prevent The Ever Painful Summer Lip Burn
May 18, 2009
As my 30th birthday gets closer every day, I’ve gotten better about wearing sunscreen. But it seems I always forget to slather SPF cream on some body part while I’m on vacation, and after my most recent getaway, I discovered how much sunburned lips could hurt.
To make sure I never repeat that mistake, I’m making sure all my lip balms contain some SPF protection. Here are three new favorites:
The classic blend of vitamins and oils has additional
sunscreen to protect the delicate skin on your lips from UVA and UVB
rays. Plus it’s incredibly moisturizing.
This is the best of all worlds— a clear, smooth gloss that protects your lips without ever getting sticky. Perfection.
3. Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment SPF 15 ($22.50)
Reparative oils and waxes mix with real sugar for maximum sun protection and a sweet lip treat.
