Protect your pout from the sun!

Protect your pout from the sun!

While we’re all pretty good these days at remembering the rub that sunscreen on our faces, pull it down to our neck and chest and applying it on our body, many of us tend to neglect our lips when it comes to sun protection… shocker!

The skin on our lips is thinner and more delicate than the rest of our body, yet somehow we still forget to protect it!

Some other places you might be forgetting about when applying SPF include…

  • Your ears
  • Your hands
  • Your feet
  • Your scalp

SPF Lip Balms are a must have for your hand bag this summer… just throw one in there and keep your pout protected from those harmful UVA and UVB rays.

SPF lip balms often contain other moisturising ingredients too, addressing chapping and dryness as well as sun protection.

So, if you love a little colour or prefer something simple with no frills, here’s a great range of lip balms that have earned a spot in our bags and pockets this summer.
