Summer is synonymous with frosty fruit juices, picturesque popsicles and an excuse to stock up on some rad sunnies. But amidst trying to stay cool for the summer, it's easy to fall short on safe sun practices for your skin. To be specific, we’re talking SPF. Think about it. There’s really no point sipping on that icy mojito with your girls if your skin (especially your lips) look...well atrocious. So, this summer, we want to throw light on the importance of protecting your lips from the toasty rays. Presenting five summer balms boasting SPF for 360-degree lip protection.
Here’s what’s great about the Neutrogena Norwegian Formula Lip Moisturizer SPF 15.
This fantastic chap stick leaves no room for any chalky evidence after application, qualifying this formula as the perfect on-to-go balm to drop into your daily handbag. This moisture-enriched stick soothes and conditions your lips, keeping them plump and healthy. Plus, the SPF15 formula has a semi-glossy finish sans the stickiness that feels sufficiently hydrating.
Enriched with rich Vitamin E and a broad spectrum SPF15, the Palmer's Cocoa Butter Formula Lip Balm SPF 15 - Dark Chocolate & Cherry
helps protect chapped, cracked or wind-burned lips. Striking the perfect balance between softening lips and shielding them, this butter balm is a great all-rounder to add to your daily kit. Plus, it’s powered with dark chocolate and berry. Need we say more? Okay one word. Yummers!
Let’s talk about a beauty blessing some of us back here at work literally consider our holy grail. The Sebamed Lip Defense With SPF 30.
Save space in your handbag for lipsticks and keep this balm at home. Why you may ask? Because you only need to apply it ONCE for 24- hour protection (super convenient, right?). Marry this step to your morning skincare routine and you’re good to go. You see why we’re obsessed?
We’ve been talking protection for you lips. How about lightening for a refreshing change? If you have super pigmented lips and also fancy a cup of coffee, the Prowomen Lip Lightener SPF 15
is your man. It
brightens yours lips while leaving a pleasant undertone of coffee right after application. This crowd pleaser is born with lip-nourishing credentials with a strong SPF protection to lighten nicotine and tobacco stained lips.
Kiehl’s find it hard to keep this SPF 30 lip treatment in stock. We find it hard from trying not to finish it all in a matter of weeks. For those who’ve not heard of this product, we’re secretly judging you. But it’s never too late to introduce the Kiehl's Butterstick Lip Treatment SPF 30 - Rose.
This supremely hydrating and plumping balm is a nourishing blend of organic coconut oil and lemon butter with an SPF30 to protect, project and pout. Now, that literally covers everything under the sun.
