5 Moisturizing And Protective Lip Products For The Summer

Keep your lips hydrated and protected from the harsh summer heat with these products that feature nourishing ingredients and sun protection. 

Dry and chapped lips are a common occurrence during the summer months, and they can be a pain to deal with—quite literally. Now more than ever, it’s important to protect your lips just as much as you would other parts of your body. Therefore, products that lock in moisture and keep the skin hydrated are a must, as are those with Sun Protector Factor (SPF). Thankfully lip products have come a long way over the years, as there are plenty of options in the market that offer effective hydration, sun protection, and oftentimes both at once.

Here are five particular products that offer all this and more to keep your lips looking and feeling good all summer long: 

Dior Addict Lip Glow 

Dior’s Addict Lip Glow is the brand’s first line of lip balms made from 97 percent natural-origin ingredients. With a smooth and sensorial texture, the balm provides a six-hour glow that keeps the lips looking plump.

It’s an all-in-one product that also locks in moisture for 24 hours thanks to cherry oil and Shea butter formula, so dryness is never a problem throughout the day. It comes in a chic couture case and a variety of shades that provide a subtle tint for everyday use as a lip balm or lip primer. 

La Mer The Lip Balm

It’s no surprise that La Mer has come up with a moisturizing lip balm with the same effectiveness as their renowned creams thanks to the brand’s signature Miracle Broth.™ The formulation renews cells with a mixture of sea kelp, vitamins, minerals, and other nutrients, bringing it back to its healthiest state. 

Known simply as “The Lip Balm,” the velvety-soft product offers intensive hydration that keeps lips smooth and supple. It also strengthens their natural moisture barrier to nourish and restore the lips in the long term. It’s great on its own or as a companion to lipstick with its transparent finish, and an ideal choice for the summer with a refreshing hint of mint. 

Laneige Lip Glowy Balm 

Laneige is a go-to name when it comes to lip care, as its viral Lip Sleeping Mask took the world by storm. Its Lip Glowy Balm delivers the same amazing care in a vast array of tints and fun flavors, including Gummy Bear, Sweet Candy, Peach, Vanilla, Mango, and Blueberry.

Lightweight yet moisture-rich, the balm contains key ingredients like Shea butter and Murmuru seed butter to soften and hydrate all day long without feeling sticky. The balm also comes in a vibrant, compact tube with a built-in applicator for easy, on-the-go moisture that fits into most pockets. 

EltaMD UV Lip Balm Broad-Spectrum SPF 36

Now we move onto the lip balms that not only maintain lip moisture, but also protect against the sun’s harmful UV (Ultraviolet radiation) rays. Though sunblock is a must, it’s not all-encompassing; the lips require their own special SPF product to stay hydrated and healthy, preventing problems like sunburns, chapped skin, and skin cancer. Enter EltaMD’s UV Lip Balm with Broad-Spectrum SPF 36. The mineral-based balm provides long lasting UVA (Ultraviolet A) & UVB (Ultraviolet B) protection while moisturizing chapped or sun-exposed lips.

Ingredients like Vitamin E, and Vitamin C reduce free radicals and prevent signs of aging. Meanwhile, the natural mineral compound Zinc Oxide reflects and scatters harmful UVA and UVB rays, while Hydromanil® and Olive Oil provide immediate and long-lasting moisturization. The balm is also water-resistant for 80 minutes, making it a great option for beach trips or swimming pool dips. 

Supergoop! PLAY Lip Balm SPF 30

Supergoop’s PLAY Lip Balm is also a great option for the outdoors thanks to its SPF 30. The balm keeps lips hydrated with Shea butter while protecting them against both UVA and UVB.

Cruelty-free and vegan, the balm comes in two subtle and fresh flavors: acai and mint. It leaves a smooth and non-sticky finish that not only feels light, but also stays on for hours.
