Summer is made for fun in the sun and relaxation. While enjoying yourself in the warm tropical light is great, it does take its toll. We’ve reminded you multiple times about how important a good skincare regimen is, but we rarely ever mention one of the most (arguably) delightful features of your face: your lips. All that heat can damage your pretty pucker, no matter how much water you consume and how hydrated you try to keep yourself. Keeping your lips from chapping might need a little more than a sip of your favorite cocktail. Here are a few great lip balms you can find in the Philippines.
For lips that are feeling as dry as the Sahara, it’s pretty perfect to get them back up to snuff with Fancy Handy’s Lip Balm Stick Cactus Desert. Of course a plant that keeps itself hydrated in the driest of climates will be able to keep your lips nice and soft even on the driest days too. The Desert Cactus Extract will keep your lips moisturized under any condition and will require minimal reapplication throughout the day.
If you want something sweet while making sure your lips are smooth and soft, one of our favorites is Burt’s Bees Coconut and Pear Lip Balm! It’s such a fun way to keep your lips hydrated while really getting into the summer vibes. The coconut and pear combination is such a great fruity summer favorite that it’s impossible to not fall in love with this nourishing balm as it satiates the thirst of your lips.
For our lovely humans that spend their whole day under the sun, we know you’re protecting yourself with sunblock, but you may have neglected your precious lips. Hurraw’s Sun Lip Balm SPF15 keeps your lips from chapping and helps keep it safe from sun damage. Is there much more a beach bunny can ask for? Hurraw makes sure that they keep the bees safe, as well as the ocean reefs. The formula is soy free, shea free, and palm free. Flavored with tangerine and hints of vanilla, combined with the scent of chamomile, this balm offers a calming experience. It’s packed full of amazing cold pressed oils to moisturize and protect.
Just in case you ever forget to protect your lips, you’re going to need something to make sure they recover from the abuse. Fancy Handy’s Monoi Lip Balm After Sun Care is there to remedy your forgetfulness and whip your lips back into shape. The soothing aloe vera will help ease windburn and sunburn and offer some sweet relief as it hydrates and moisturizes. Just don’t forget about applying SPF on your lips too often because while the Monoi Lip Balm After Sun Care is great, it’s always better to protect yourself from damage instead having to repair it.
If you want a refreshing hit of mint to your system, the Pili Ani Mint Lip Balm is a quick fix. Not only does it offer a revitalizing hit of coolness to the lips, but with the Elemi and Pili Oils that have been infused in the formula, not only are you guaranteed moisturization, but protection as well, thanks to the oils’ natural antioxidants. An added bonus of this Mini Lip Balm adding a bit of color to your smackers makes it an easy choice if you want to be fuss-free throughout the day.
Grab yourself a lip balm to suit your needs for the summer… or any other time of the year, actually. Just make sure that your lips are always primed and moisturized no matter what activities you choose to get up to.
