Protecting Your Lips from Sun Damage: Why Lip Products with SPF Is Essential - AN Skin & Beauty

Protecting Your Lips from Sun Damage: Why Lip Products with SPF Is Essential

Despite their susceptibility to sun damage, lips are often neglected when it comes to sun protection. The skin on our lips is much thinner and lacks the same level of melanin as the rest of our skin, making it more prone to sunburn and premature aging. Prolonged sun exposure can lead to dryness, chapping, and even the development of fine lines and wrinkles on the lips. By incorporating lip products with SPF into your daily routine, you can shield your lips from UV damage and maintain their softness and suppleness. Just like sunscreen for your face and body, lip products with SPF offer crucial protection against the sun's harmful UV rays. Lip glosses with SPF create a barrier between your lips and the sun, helping to prevent sunburn, chapping, and long-term damage. 

What kind of SPF is best for your lips?

We’re so glad you asked! Not all lip products are created equal, and neither is SPF. Opt for mineral-based, broad-spectrum, medical-grade, and hydrating SPF. This standard is absolutely essential, but it's unfortunately incredibly difficult to find over the counter. Luckily for you, we have not one but two options that meet this quality standard and more. 

The HA Plumping SPF Gloss

Get instantly plump, voluminous, and healthy-looking lips with our HA Plumping SPF Gloss. HA stands for Hyaluronic Acid, which boosts hydration, reduces dryness, and naturally plumps lips. Peptides and ceramides restore your lips, revealing a brighter, softer, healthier look! Here are some highlights: 

  • Lip treatment with UVA/UVB broad spectrum SPF 30
  • Multi-functional, pigment-free lip treatment protects lips while helping restore hydration and youthful volume
  • Enhancers and Peptides to create voluminous lips.
  • Two molecular forms of HA ensure continuous and optimal hydration:
    • Fractionated HA: easily penetrates skin to moisturize deeply
    • HA with High-molecular weight: retains water on the lip’s surface to form a protective barrier and keep moisture locked in
