Warm weather is finally here and summer is just around the corner. As you stock up on swimsuits, floppy hats, and sunscreen, don't forget about your lips. I'm not just talking about cute glosses and tints — I'm talking about shielding your lips from the sun! Shop these 13 lipsticks with SPF so you can protect your pout all summer long.
Every summer, I manage to burn my lips at least once, resulting in swollen lips that are extra painful. Your lips are very sensitive to sunlight, no matter what your skin tone is. That's because the skin on your lips are extra thin, so they can easily chap or burn in the sun. If you want to keep them healthy, smooth, and help them age with grace, you'll want to use sunscreen on your lips — just like the rest of your body. Wearing sunscreen on your lips is a good habit to start now, if you already haven't, and keep up throughout the year — not just summertime!
But wearing sunscreen on your lips doesn't have to mean boring, plain lip balm and no color. Thankfully, both department store and drugstore brands have beautiful, creamy and diverse lip formulas that include SPF. I'm not just talking about glosses and sheer formulas, either — there are plenty of highly pigmented lipsticks that will also soothe and protect.
Below are my favorite lipsticks that will shield and color your pout all summer long.
