Save Your Lips Aptos – These four SPF-Lip balms tested by Drs. Drew. “Lip skin cancer is particularly dangerous because it can spread internally more readily than from other areas of the body,” Dr. Prystowsky cautions.
It’s 2015, which means we’re well aware of the inherent dangers of sun exposure and we try our best to be mindful about SPF every day—not just on beach days! Give this vulnerable area extra TLC with an SPF-formulated balm.
Here are a 4 recommendations for your anti-lip aging arsenal and links on where to find them. I purchased all four on Amazon.
1.Eucerin Aquaphor is a drugstore classic for a reason, and their ultra-moisturizing Repair + Protect version is packed with SPF 30.
2. For max effectiveness, wear a high-SPF balm underneath your lip color as a base such as Shiseido Sun Protection Lip Treatment 36 SPF
TINTED LIP BALM WITH SPF
3. Fresh’s Tinted Lip Sugar line with SPF 15
4. Maybelline Baby Lips with SPF 20
My favorite is the Shiseido due to the SPF 36 offering the highest sun protection and it leaves a thick layer on your lips so you know it’s protecting against the California sun! Dr. Jason Drew says his favorite is the Aquaphor because of its easy application and doesn’t have a tint or stickiness like the rest.
