It is so interesting to experiment with lip makeup, but we often forget about caring for this area. Their delicate and sensitive skin is the first to suffer from aggressive environmental factors and requires additional attention. The question becomes even more relevant in the summer, when the lips begin to suffer from harmful ultraviolet radiation.
BeautyHack explains how to care for your delicate area and shares a selection of the best SPF balms to protect your lips from the sun
In summer, the skin of the lips is especially vulnerable, because it does not have the stratum corneum and pigment cells for protection - under the scorching rays, it quickly becomes thinner, dries and flakes. Add to these factors a strong wind, and the picture becomes even sadder.
Many people mistakenly believe that conventional sunscreens are suitable for protecting lips in the summer, and they are greatly mistaken in this - the texture of body products is not intended to care for such a delicate area. In addition, SPF products often contain ingredients that should not be swallowed.
To keep your lips soft and delicate, complement your summer makeup bag with a special SPF lip balm and apply it every time you go out (see a selection of lip pencils to replace lipstick here).
When choosing a hygienic lipstick or balm, pay attention to the composition. It is good if their formula is enriched with moisturizing ingredients, for example, beeswax - it contains vitamin A and promotes the healing of wounds and cracks, and also has antibacterial and antiseptic properties. Natural ingredients and oils will additionally nourish and moisturize the skin. Wheat germ oil eliminates dryness and accelerates skin regeneration, coconut oil itself effectively protects from the sun. And, of course, hygienic lipstick or lip balm in the summer must have an SPF filter of at least 15 units in its composition.
Today, cosmetic brands offer a wide range of lip care products in the summer:
Stick to lips Bariesun SPF30, Uriage
