Lips need extra TLC as the skin in this area is thinner and produces less melanin to counteract wrinkle-inducing UV damage. Keep your pout protected with these SPF-loaded lip balms.

This colourless lip balm with SPF 15 hydrates as it protects. Its refreshing strawberry-mint flavour sweetens the deal.

At SPF 50 PA++++, this offers one of the highest levels of sun protection among the lip balms. It is enriched with nourishing ingredients like argan oil and shea butter to soothe chapped lips.
