It's Summer (Woo Hoo!) and your free time is likely filled with days spent outside with family and friends. Whether you're at the beach, barbecue or simply spending the day weeding your garden, it's crucial to protect your skin from the power of the sun.
You probably load up with sunblock on your face, neck and back, but it's common to forget the little things, like your lips. If you've already made the mistake of neglecting the SPF there and are now dealing with painful, sunburned lips, read on to hear our simple and effective '5 Amazing After Sun Lip Tips'.
Replenishing the moisture the sun zapped from your lips is extremely important. Here are a a few at home remedies to give them a drink including almond oil, beeswax, vitamin E, olive oil and honey. Using clean, organic products is a must. Many of the conventional products we reach for have toxic chemicals including parabens, dyes and synthetic fragrances.
Try using a product like 'Moroccan Magic: Organic Argan & Essential Oil Lip Balm' - Coconut Almond'! Coconut oil is an excellent moisturizer, soothing and totally natural.
2. Cool Compress
Simple, effective and FREE. Soak a facecloth in cold water and gently apply several times a day to help soothe the soreness and assist in the healing process.
3. Aloe Vera
Aloe vera has so many benefits including anti-inflammatory and soothing properties. Luckily for you and your sunburned lips, it's easy to find at almost any drugstore. Make sure to read the ingredients to be sure it doesn't contain any harsh chemicals.
4. Drink Water
Water doesn't just hydrate your body, it hydrates your skin and lips too. Give those lips a drink!
5. Avoid Sun
You might have seen this one coming, but until your lips are fully healed, you'll want to avoid the sun entirely. This is a great time to pull out that fabulous floppy hat you never wear or your favorite baseball cap when heading outside to give your kissers a much needed break.
Hopefully this experience will remind you to never again forget to protect those fabulous lips of yours!
Moroccan Magic is launching an SPF 30 'Sun & Sport' Lip Balm later in the year so you never have to worry about sunburned lips again.
Stay cool out there!
