Lip balm with SPF

Keep your lips protected this summer

The lips often tend to get forgotten about when it comes to sun care. Make sure to keep them protected when you’re out and about enjoying the sun by using a lip balm with SPF.

When should you be wearing lip balm with SPF?

Lips need protecting too! Find out when we recommend that you use a lip balm with SPF as part of your lip care routine.

The importance of sun protection for lips

When it comes to preparing for a fun day at the beach when you’re on a sun holiday, most people take great care in applying a good sunscreen all over their body, but there’s usually one spot that tends to get forgotten – the lips! The skin on the lips is actually much thinner and more delicate than the rest of the face and is therefore much more vulnerable to damage by UVA/UVB rays.

Using a good Labello lip balm with SPF like Labello Hydro Care Lip Balm SPF 15 provides two kinds of protection. Firstly, it’ll stop the lips from experiencing painful sunburn and dryness. Secondly, it will help to keep lips looking young and healthy with no signs of premature aging.

It doesn’t matter how well you moisturise and care for your lips, if it’s very sunny and they’re exposed to dangerous UVA/UVB rays without protection, they’re not going to look as smooth and healthy as they could do.

Enjoy the summer knowing that your lips are protected

Summer is a wonderful time of year and there’s nothing better than enjoying the warm weather by basking in the sun. By wearing a lip balm with SPF, you can relax in the knowledge that your lips are protected so you can concentrate on enjoying yourself.

How to find the ideal lip balm with SPF

If you’ve got fair skin or are in a very hot climate, the higher the SPF the better. Try to choose a lip balm specifically designed for sun protection like Labello Sun Protect Lip Balm SPF 30. Not only does this have a high SPF, it also contains sunflower extract to keep the lips well hydrated.

If your lips tend to be dry and cracked or you’re exposed to wintry weather conditions, you may want something like Labello Med Repair Lip Balm SPF 15. This product intensively cares for and nourishes ultra-dry lips, as well as providing sun protection.

5 occasions it’s essential to use lip balm with SPF

Swimming

Dangerous UVA/UVB rays can reflect off the ocean or outdoor swimming pool as you swim, putting you at a higher risk of damage, so keep a lip balm with SPF like Labello Hydro Care Lip Balm SPF 15 in your swimming bag at all times.

Sunbathing

It’s no surprise that sunbathing is one of the most important times to remember to use a lip balm with SPF. Forgetting to apply protection may lead to dry lips that are thirsty for moisture and in the long run could cause premature aging and an increased risk of skin cancer.

Driving

Many people forget about SPF while driving on a sunny day. Although the glass will block most UVB rays, UVA rays can still pass through and cause damage. Labello Sun Protect Lip Balm SPF 30 will protect against both UVA and UVB.

A quick dig here and a cut-back there – when you’re busy tending to the garden, it can be all too easy to forget you’re outdoors in the blazing sunlight. Make sure to use a lip balm with SPF before heading outside on sunny days.

Winter holidays

Summer isn’t the only season you need to be thinking about keeping your lips protected. If you enjoy winter sports like skiing and snowboarding, your lips could be at risk however cold it may be, because the rays will reflect off the snow and hit you from two angles.
