SPF Lip Products For Summer


It’s become a natural habit to slather sunscreen on your face and body during hot summer days, but we often forget that lips need protection too from the sun too. Using lip products with a high SPF is extremely important and reduces the risk of getting skin cancer. In fact, using a lip gloss without any SPF is actually worse for your lips, as the gloss can act as a magnifying glass for the sun’s rays. Consider layering a lip product with a high SPF underneath or skip the gloss all together and opt for a matte lip product with SPF. Here are 5 lip products, lipsticks and balms that are perfect for days in the sun.

Yves Saint Laurent Rouge Volupte with SPF 15: This creamy formula enriched with SPF 15 also comes in the most gorgeous shades for summer.
