Our Favorite SPF Lip Balms That Protect *And* Soothe Dry, Chapped Lips
We’ve said it before and we’ll say it again: No matter the season or the weather, sunscreen is an absolute must. While you take the time to slather your face in SPF, can you say the same for your lips? Oftentimes we forget that our pouts are one of the most sensitive areas of skin on the body — not to mention one of the first places to show signs of premature aging. As much as you love your go-to nourishing lip balm, if it doesn’t have added sun protection, it’s time to upgrade your daytime formula. Ahead you’ll find our favorite creamy balms that range from invisible to berry-licious.
Take your lip care on a tropical getaway with this rich butter balm.
