Protect Your Pout This Summer With SPF Lip Products
There are some parts of the body that we never forget to apply sunscreen to (I'm looking at you, tops of feet!), but the lips are often overlooked, and they definitely need special protection. The most common form of skin cancer, basal cell carcinoma (BCC), tends to occur on the ears, nose, forehead, and lower lip, so it's worth reading up on why you need to protect your lips in the sun and then buying a lip product with SPF. The majority come in SPF 15, but there are also higher levels of protection, going all the way up to SPF 50. And you don't even have to go through a two-step process of applying protection and then colour if you prefer a one-slick approach, as there are plenty of lipsticks, lip glosses, balms, ointments, conditioners, and butters available, plus tinted and clear lip sunscreens, treatments, and protector sticks. Browse our picks, and protect your pout this Summer.
