Don’t Skip Your Lips this Summer: The Importance of Sunscreen Lip Balms

Sunscreen Lip Balms

When you’re down at the beach enjoying the brilliant sun this summer, you’ll most likely apply sunscreen to your arms, legs, back, and face—that is a no-brainer! But did you know that during this process you’re overlooking one of the most sensitive areas of skin on your entire body? There’s one place most people forget to apply sun protection: the lips! A recent study found that 63 percent of sunscreen users don’t protect their lips—an incredibly common spot for skin cancer. Those are staggering numbers! Don’t forget to protect your kisser with Rock Mountain Sunscreen’s sunscreen lip balm this summer.

Don’t just apply any product to your lips: You’ll want to choose something long lasting and SPF-fortified—like Rocky Mountain Sunscreen’s sunscreen lip balm! Dermatologists believe that regular lip balms—especially shiny balms—focus UV rays onto your lips. It’s like wearing a bulls-eye directly on your face. Keeping your kisser hydrated is important, too, but did you know that if you’re using plane, boring lip balms, UV rays can penetrate your lips deeper? It’s true. Although you may want to look pretty this summer, sunscreen lip balm is the guaranteed way to protect yourself and get the most out of your activities. You don’t want to return home with burnt, hurting lips, do you?

We all know what the most popular summer activities are: eating delectable foods, drinking refreshing beverages, and swimming in cool, blue water. Although these activities are filled with joy, they do cause lip balm to be removed. Be responsible this summer, and don’t forget to reapply sunscreen lip balm several times a day or after your favorite warm-weather pastime. You definitely won’t regret it!

Don’t forget to try out flavored sunscreen lip balm: Flavors include kiwi and vanilla mint. Try something new this summer—just don’t eat it!
