In the summer, most of us prefer a minimum of makeup. Tint your eyes, lighten your eyebrows, and give your skin a well-deserved rest from foundation and powder. The priority now is for other products – sunscreen, thermal water, mosquito spray (you want to laugh or not, but we are preparing a separate selection) and, of course, lip balms with SPF. We dedicate this material to the latter.
Dermatocosmetologist Viktoria Britko explains that lip protection should be given no less attention than face protection: “The thing is that they have practically no melanin, so they are especially vulnerable.” If you ignore the protection, the lips will become dry and micro cracks will appear. Be sure to apply special balms and lipsticks before going out in the sun. Look at the composition – look among the ingredients for vitamins A, E, F, herbal extracts and aloe juice.
It is best not to use regular sunscreens – they are not designed to care for the more delicate skin of the lips. In addition, many creams contain ingredients that should not be eaten. Please note that the SPF protection level was at least 15.
