Are you looking to keep your pout perfectly luscious during the summer? Summer rays can dry your lips faster than you realize. To keeps lips soft, smooth and hydrated during the summer, apply lip balm and be sure to stay hydrated.
Lipsticks that are glossy with little to no color are harmful to your lips because they reflect UV rays faster which can cause skin cancer. Here are some tips to insure your pout is perfectly pampered.
If your lips become dry and start to peel, use some sugar and olive oil to exfoliate your skin and remove the accumulated dead skin cells.
Look for a lip product that has a base of beeswax, petroleum jelly, or paraffin. These products will seal moisture and stay on your lips longer in comparison to thinner balms and glosses.
Ditch the lip gloss and switch to a matte lip product with an SPF.
If you need to stick with lip gloss, apply a colored lipstick to your lips first and then add some shine. A colored lipstick with an SPF product is your best bet.
Opt for a lip gloss product with a minimum of SPF 30.
