Don’t go for medicated balms. If you want to keep your lips kissable. The tingle can be intoxicating, but these formulas won’t protect your pout they’ll only make it drier. Look for lip balms or glosses with ingredients like cocoa butter and beeswax instead, both of which coat your lips with a layer that helps protect and nourish.
Do wear SPF on your lips during the day. While you might have a major obsession with gloss, the shinier and more reflective your pucker is, the more UV rays it will attract! The negative effects on lips may not be immediately visible, but a dark brown lesion can develop after repeated sun exposure if you must! Slather the gloss after a layer of balm with SPF 15.
