You can have your lip color and sun protection too with these best lip products with SPF.
Who doesn’t love going out and (safely) enjoying the nice weather? You can show off your toes in sandals and wear that sundress you’ve had in your closet for months. We all know to regularly apply sunscreen when we’re out on a sunny day, but what you may not realize is that our lips need to be protected, too.
If you think you can’t get a sunburn on your lips, think again. The skin on our lips is more delicate than our faces. Chapped lips are nothing compared to a burned pout. A sunburn on your lips is not fun and you can’t cover it up with metallic lipstick. Trust us.
Protecting your lips from the sun doesn’t mean you have to give up your favorite lip colors. There’s a variety of lipsticks, glosses and balms that offer you color and an interesting finish with added sun protection. Below, we give you 12 lip products with SPF that will keep your kisser protected all year long.
