When slapping on the sunscreen how often do you think about your lips? I think we’re all pretty well versed with the daily facial SPF routine (or at least I hope we are!) but lots of us probably don’t consider what the sun is doing to our lips. Keeping them hydrated and protected is so important if you want luscious, soft lips all year round. If like me your lips are prone to drying out and sometimes even flaking if they get too dry then try a dab of SPF lip balm, leave it in your beach bag and you won’t regret it!
