Sunlight can be great, warming our skin and giving us long, hot days, but we need to be careful of its harmful UV rays.
To protect our skin, we need to be prepared at all times. Whether it’s a day on the beach, or just a short trip to the convenience store or getting the mail from the mail box, any part of our skin exposed to the sunlight needs protecting. So we are eternally grateful to the scientists who created sunscreen!
We remember to put sunscreen on our back, legs, face, you name it, but it is important to keep lips protected from sun damage too. Our lips are made up of a very thin layer of skin, even wiping off your lipstick could cause them to become irritated. UV rays can do a lot more damage than that, so a lip balm is important, but a lip balm with SPF is even more important.
That’s why Collection Ultra Nourishing Lip Balm contains SPF 25, helping lips stay, smooth, hydrated AND protected against harmful UV rays.
But don’t think Ultra Nourishing Lip Balm is just for summer — it’s important to apply every day, even if it’s cloudy, UV rays can get through a cloudy sky.
And don’t think one swipe of lip balm a day is enough to keep you protected, the American Academy of Dermatology (AAD) advise applying before you go outside, then re-applying at least every two hours.
Even more importantly, research indicates women who have excessive sun exposure and only apply lip protection once a day or less, have twice the risk of developing the lip cancer than women who apply lip protection more often.
With our Ultra Nourishing Lip Balm, you can easily apply your SPF before slicking on your lipstick or quickly onto bare lips before you go outside. Made with sunflower oil, rosemary extract and SPF 25, it’s the go to balm, to show your lips some love!
