Protect Your Lips From the Summer Sun

Summer is not the season for heavy makeup and dark colors. For this reason, many people are tempted to forego lipstick during the warmer months. Although we can empathize with the sentiment, those UV rays (along with the salty wind, if you’re near the beach) mean some SPF treatment is in order. Here are some Makeover Essentials favorites:

• Bite Beauty Everyday Agave Lip Collection: For $18, this product effectively exfoliates and polishes lips. It’s an enzymatic brown-sugar scrub, a vanilla and agave balm, and an overnight mask for extra moisturization.

• Peach Slices Aqua Jelly Lip Mask: This mask costs a mere $4. It’s infused with Vitamin C, coconut, shea butter, and honey – perfect for rehydrating dry lips as well as the skin around them.

• Goldie’s Healing Salve: At $10, this herbalist-made salve is full of eucalyptus, comfrey root, lavender, and almond. It’s the perfect product for chafed and cracked lips. No one from Makeover Essentials leaves the house without this blend on hand.

• Context Lip Repair SPF 30: There are plenty of helpful ingredients in this product, which is also just $10. Sunflower, extra virgin olive oil, hemp seed, Vitamin E oil, and rosemary extract (for cell renewal) are just a few. It contains Vitamins A, B, and D as well.
