Face & Lip Sunscreen FAQ

1. How can I protect my lips from the sun?

One of the best ways to protect your lips from the sun is with a mineral lip sunscreen. UV Skinz® has a paraben, gluten, fragrance, and cruelty-free tinted sunscreen lip balm offering SPF 30 UV and UVB protection. It is also made with shea, avocado, and olive butter for added hydration.

2. Do you need to protect your lips from the sun?

Yes! Sunburned lips can feel dry, rough, or scaly, and sun-damaged lips can increase the risk of developing skin cancer. It’s a good idea to wear sunscreen lip balm anytime you are outside, even in cold weather.

3. What SPF do you need for lips?

We recommend wearing a lip sunscreen with an SPF of at least 15. Since the lips don’t have the same capacity as the rest of the skin to produce melanin, the more SPF you can provide, the better.

4. What is the best lip protectant?

An SPF lip sunscreen balm is the best lip protectant from the sun. Lip sunscreen with zinc oxide or titanium dioxide, otherwise known as mineral lip sunscreen, effectively blocks the sun’s UV rays from absorbing into the skin and burning your lips. If you don’t have a sunscreen lip balm handy, opt-in for a mineral sunscreen.
