12 lip products with sun protection

Many people forget that the lips are arguably one of the most crucial areas to protect from the sun.

Because the skin around this area is so thin and is lacking in melanin, it has very little protection from ageing and damaging UV rays.

That’s why BD has put together this carefully selected list of lip products that will help keep your lips both plump and protected this summer.
