Not Just Lip Service: Your Lips Need Spf Too February 20, 2010

If there is a “theme” or “mantra” to this blog I believe it would be – always use your sunscreen!  As I have mentioned before in my posts no matter what time of year it is or what type of weather it is you still need to use sunscreen daily, and you need to reapply your sunscreen. 

One part of your body that is ALWAYS exposed to the sun’s rays, 365 days a year, are your lips, but I think many of us forget that even our lips need sun protection.  Get into the habit of using lipsticks, glosses, or chapsticks that contain spf 15 or higher.

I thought I would highlight some lip products that have that needed spf 15:

FYI  – The above products are just suggestions for use, not endorsements.  I have only tried the Blistex products myself. 

If you have a favorite lip product with spf please feel free to comment below.
