We are getting more and more aware of how incredibly important it is to wear sun protection even when we aren’t at the beach, to prevent sunburn, photoaging and skin cancer.
The skin on our lips is very thin and extremely sensitive which makes them more prone to damage not just from the sun, but from very cold conditions, extreme heat and also wind. They are almost always exposed to these elements. Just like the rest of our bodies, our lips benefit from sun having protection as well. Sun exposure destroys collagen, a protein that is abundant in the lips and over time this will eventually make the lips thinner and create fine lines and wrinkles. Using a sun protection lip balm will protect your skin and collagen.
Unfortunately, lipstick and lip gloss do not shield your lips from the sun. You need to have a lip care product that contains and SPF.
