Sun Protection And Your Lips
July 15, 2014
While a good number of us are ensuring we are applying a good amount of sunscreen to our skin, we tend to forget about the lips. With a recent study at the University of Texas showing only 30% of us ensure our lips have protection!
Our lips are naturally thin and vulnerable, with a lower level of melanin (pigment) than the rest of our skin. As melanin is a form of protection, when the lips are exposed to the sun their protection is naturally low, making them easier to burn, crack and peel.
Another reason the lips are prone to sun damage is that they are constantly exposed, even when you're wearing sunglasses, hats etc. the lips are constantly at the sun's mercy!
Make sure to apply and reapply your lip protection, ensuring you use a zinc based product. Zinc provides great protection against UVA and UVB rays. Reapplication is the key, the quicker your skin burns the more often you need to reapply!
