Extreme weather conditions such as winter and summer can make your lips vulnerable resulting in dryness, cracked and chapped lips. One of the simplest ways to prevent this is by applying lip balm all year round to keep them nourished and hydrated. The skin on your lips is more sensitive compared to the rest of your body therefore a layer of protection is necessary to prevent damage. Here are four reasons you need a lip balm this summer...

Prevents chapped lips

During extreme weather conditions the thin protective layer gets easily peeled off leading to dry and chapped lips. Look for a lip balm which is infused with moisturising and nourishing ingredients such as vitamin E and other natural oils.

Lips that lack moisture and appear chapped make you look older than your age. Applying a lip balm everyday will make your lips appear soft and supple and knock years off your face, making you look younger.

Offers SPF protection

Look for a lip balm that also offers sun protection, this prevents sun damage and pigmentation on the lips. The Lakme Lip Love Chapstick contains SPF 15 to protect lips from harmful UV rays as well as gives your lips a beautiful subtle tint.
