7 Lip Products That Will Protect Your Pout From Harmful Sun Rays


tony moly

Ah, summer. A time for tanning and bright lipstick. Incidentally, these two things go together splendidly. I mean, have you ever tried to wear the same fuchsia lipstick you wrote off in January in July, only to realize it looks bitchin’ over your tan skin? It totally makes a difference.

With that being said, there are some dangers that come with all the sunlight. Despite its bronzing powers, sun can wreak havoc on the quality of your skin – and while you’re probably diligent about slicking ¬†sunscreen on your face before you step out (you do do this, right?), there’s a solid chance you’re not protecting your lips from the harming effects of the sun. You should be though; excessive sunlight can absolutely damage your pucker.

I’m not saying you need to give up your brightest lippie this year – just consider adding one of these protective products to your repertoire.
