5 Best Lip Treatments For Summer
Posted On: - 2013-07-11 13:14:47
While summer vacations are in full swing and people are spending time outdoors, many are noticing dry, chapped lips.
Although this is a “seasonal” happening, dry lips can be uncomfortable, painful, and for some, unsightly.
Skin Care Heaven, an e-commerce store and skin research center based in Carlsbad, picked the five top lip treatments for the summer months.
"The warmer weather can really dehydrate our lips; and, if outdoor sports are your thing, direct sunlight on your lips can aggravate the dryness issues," said the Skin Care Heaven spokesperson. She added, "With regular use, our top picks will hydrate, soothe sensitive lips, prevent future dryness, and some even offer SPF ingredients."
Jane Iredale Lip Drink: This hydration product bursts with green tea extract, vitamin E, and vitamin C antioxidants. While the flavor tastes of lemon and orange blends, the antioxidants work hard to keep lips soft and smooth. A broad spectrum SPF 15 of edible zinc oxide offers a solar defense.
Mum + Bub Soothing Ointment: Great for minor cuts, rashes, windburn, and chafed skin, this gentle ointment helps heal chapped, dry lips, too. Its ingredients include a fermented Australian pawpaw fruit and vanilla.
Kinerase Ultimate Volume Lip Conditioner: Offering a SPF 15, this conditioner hydrates, adds lip fullness and offers anti-aging properties because of collagen promotion. It’s a top pick for more youthful looking lips.
Dermalogica Clean Start Smart Mouth Lip Shine: The hydrating mix in this product includes vitamin E, cocoa butter, avocado, rice bran, and shea butter. It adds moisture, shine, and softness to lips.
Dermalogica Climate Control Lip Treatment: Also from Dermalogica, this product uses an Anti-Ozonate formulation to heal lips damaged caused by the climate temperatures, including the harsh summer and winter months. Its shea and vitamin E ingredients help ward off future dryness.
“Our skin care rule of thumb is to use SPF lip products during the day when you are outdoors, and during your nighttime skin care routine, to apply a hydrating product without SPF properties,” said the spokesperson. “The right, quality lip treatment can keep your lips looking youthful and beautiful no matter how hot the summer months become.”
