The higher the SPF the better, and this is true for all types of sun protection including your face and the rest of your body. Try to choose a lip balm specifically designed for lip sun protection like NIVEA Sun Protect Caring Lip Balm SPF 30. Not only does this have a high SPF, it also contains 100% Organic Jojoba Oil which cares for and hydrates your lips to keep them feeling and looking healthy.
If your lips tend to be dry and cracked or you're exposed to wintry weather conditions, you may want a lip balm like NIVEA Soothe & Protect Caring Lip Balm SPF 15. This product intensively cares for and nourishes ultra-dry lips with 100% Organic Jojoba Oil and Vitamin E, as well as providing effective lip sun protection.
Ingredients to keep your eye out for in lip balm with SPF:
Jojoba oil has many benefits. It's a natural anti-inflammatory so expertly helps to soothe dry, itchy or sensitive areas of your lips, often caused by not using lip balm with SPF. It contains natural antioxidants which help to prevent damage to the skin as well as being naturally intensely moisturising, just what you need in your lip balm with SPF.
Having a lip balm with SPF that also contains Vitamin E provides you with several benefits too. Vitamin E absorbs UVB light which is responsible for skin damage and skin ageing. Not only this, but Vitamin E promotes cell turnover & regeneration which helps bring new cells to the surface faster to help replenish dry or chapped lips.
Shea butter is extra hydrating, moisturising and contains antioxidants. But the benefits don't stop there. Much like Vitamin E, Shea Butter has natural healing properties which help to repair damaged lip cells. You're guaranteed to have cared for and hydrated lips with a lip balm with SPF that also contains Shea Butter.
