So it’s officially summer! More outdoor activities means more exposure to sun’s harmful UVA and UVB rays. Be a skincare ninja! Drink water, moisturize, load up on sunscreen. And please, don’t forget your precious puckers. Flaky and sunburned? double ouch! Here are some tips to keep your lips in tip top condition all through summer.

{1} Protect and hydrate. Apply lip balm with SPF 15 or more to keep your lips moisturized and shielded from the sun. Keep lip balm in your makeup bag because reapplication is important for continuous sun protection. I love tinted lip balms like Fresh Sugar Lip Treatment Sunscreen SPF 15 Sugar Berry because duh, it has color!

{2} Treat sunburned and dry lips. Despite our so-called vigilance, Murphy’s law prevails. Case in point, hubs. So what’s a beauty-blogging wife gotta do? Play superhero. Murad Soothing Skin and Lip Care (review here)  is a healing salve, lip savior so to speak because it did help poor hub’s lips stay doubly hydrated.

{3} Prevent flakiness. Be one step ahead. While there’s a plethora of lip scrubs in the market, making your own isn’t that technical. Mix two drops olive oil with pinch of sugar and rub onto lips for one minute. Rinse and apply lip balm thereafter.

what’s your lip care like for the summer?

    I've gotta constantly use Bite Beauty Agave Lip mask or my lips are on the dry side.

    I love the Fresh Sugar balms. I love the EOS balms, too – their unique shape means I can always find it in the bottom of my purse, lol

    Yay, it's summertime! I didn't used to care for my lips much, but these days I'm diligently moisturizing and exfoliating 🙂 Love those Fresh lip balms, they're fabulous!

    Great tips, and I love the products that you selected! My biggest lip care routine for the summer is making sure to wear a lip balm with an SPF either alone or with any of my lipsticks or lip glosses!

    I am terrible at remembering lip scrubbing. Now that my hormones are back in check, my lips aren't as dry.

    I need a good lip balm and also lipstick with SPF. There are zillions out there, but I just don't happen to own any!

    I always carry a chapstick with SPF and a bottle of water to keep myself hydrated. If I drink too much coffee my lips get dry and I know I need more water! Great picks I love my LOccitane lip balms !

    It is so important to take care of your lips all year long, but especially summer. Great tips.

    I really want to try that Fresh Sugar balm because I've heard so many great things about it! 🙂

    I'm so bad when it comes to lip care. I use the Jack Black Intense Therapy Lip Balm, which has SPF in it, and it is super good at moisturizing my lips. I don't exfoliate my lips as much as I should, though.

    See I always forget about SPF in my lip products. Thankfully so many brands out there are already adding SPF into lip balms and lipsticks so I'm covered on that end.

    I don't think there is ANYTHING worse than sunburnt lips. My god!

  13. June 23, 2015 / 12:03 am

    Been there done that with the sunburned hubby! lol My summer go-to is the Supergoop lip balm!

  14. June 23, 2015 / 12:06 am

    I totally wear SPF on my lips year round Nothing is worse than burned lips!

  15. June 23, 2015 / 1:48 am

    I also live for Fresh Sugar balms, they rock!

  16. June 23, 2015 / 2:13 am

    I'm trying to remember an SPF balm during the day.

  17. June 23, 2015 / 11:32 am

    I don't love the price (or how easily they can melt), but I am a major fan of the Fresh Sugar balms.

  18. June 23, 2015 / 2:20 pm

    I am always diligent about wearing lip balm with SPF when I am going to be out in the sun for long periods because sun burned lips are the WORST!

  19. June 23, 2015 / 11:50 pm

    I'm in love with Berry- all of those balms are the best!

  20. June 24, 2015 / 2:33 am

    Great tips! My lips suffer if I am not diligent in taking care of them

  21. June 24, 2015 / 4:03 am

    Yes, SPF is definitely so important for lip products too. Back in the day when I did a lot of surfing I didn't know that and my lips would be burnt.

  22. June 24, 2015 / 7:53 pm

    Fabulous tips! 🙂 Happy summer!

  23. June 24, 2015 / 10:03 pm

    I use that DIY scrub for my body, but I'll have to start trying it on my lips 🙂
