There’s plenty of SPF talk here at In The Groove. But we’ve neglected one important part of our faces: our mouths! Lip balms loaded up with SPF are a key part of a protective routine during long days at the beach, on the golf course, or even just running errands.
The skin on your lips is actually thinner and more delicate than the rest of your face, which makes it extra important. A lip balm with SPF will protect your pucker from sunburn and dryness, as well as premature aging.
If you’re looking to really treat yourself, splurge on the Chantecaille Lip Tint . A neutral shade infused with rose and honey, it’ll keep your lips nourished no matter how long you’re outside. Another all natural splurge is Fresh’s Lip Treatment with SPF 15. The sulfate-free treatment is loaded up with natural oils like grapeseed and black currant for hydration. Plus, there’s a variety of colors that’ll give you a light wash of color.
Lip balms are one of those wonderful things where there’s no need to splurge to get the best quality. Don’t overthink it. Drugstore favorites like Carmex give you protection and hydration all for the price of $2.79. If you’re looking for something tinted, Sun Bum has you covered. Their sheer tinted balm is full of olive oil, aloe vera, and shea butter. And of course, SPF 15.
