How Can Sunlight Damage Your Lips?
While exposure to sunlight can be a good thing, in excess, it can damage the delicate skin of your lips. Because lips do not have melanin, the substance that colors and protects you from sun damage, they are more susceptible to burning, chapping, peeling, and other serious issues. Unfortunately, most people fail to adequately protect their lips when out in the sun. In a recent survey conducted by the University of Texas, only 37-percent of beachgoers said they regularly used lip protection. Since overexposure can lead to a reduction in collagen which increases the appearance of lines and wrinkles, this can have a major impact on the outward appearance of your skin. In addition, the sun’s UV rays are thought to be the cause of up to 90 percent of all cases of non-melanoma skin cancer, making lip protection a priority for those who want to avoid a cancer diagnosis.
How Can Elta MD Lip Balm Help?
Elta MD lip balm is a proprietary blend of ingredients that includes 5-percent Hydromanil for deep moisturizing, as well as transparent Zinc Oxide for sun protection. This means that Elta MD lip balm not only prevents damage but also restores your lips to their natural, supple state. Elta MD Lip Balm is also water-resistant for up to 80 minutes, allowing users to swim, bathe, and explore the outdoors without constant reapplication.
