Yes, your lips need sunscreen too. We’ve rounded up the best lip balms with SPF that will keep your pout supple and protected all summer long

You’re probably well aware of how important maintaining a facial skincare routine is, but how are you taking care of the lips? An area that often gets overlooked for protection from damaging UV rays, lip care can feel like of effort on summer days—but the right product can make all the difference, nourishing your pout, make them feel good, and crucially, preventing discolouration and the formation of fine lines.

Living in the Covid times has put our lips in the shade, but we think it’s still a good idea to invest in some quality lip treatments to ensure they look their best when the masks come off at those social-distanced beach trips and poolside parties.

Ahead, we’ve compiled a list of the best lip balms with SPF to add to your beauty routine. From Supergoop!’s lightweight moisturiser to Clé de Peau Beauté’s luxe treatment, these SPF-packed lip balms will keep your lips safe and pretty during summer and beyond.
