SPF Lip Gloss from Colorescience Shines and Protects

Spring is upon us, as well as the sun! Even though some days may be spotty here in Santa Barbara, fog does not completely block out harmful UVB rays!

 

colorescience_lipshineWe hope that after all of our education about sun damage and your skin, that your face is adequately covered with a physical sunblock (some of our favorites include Colorescience Sunforgettable Mineral Make-Up and TiZo SPF 40) and maybe even a hat, but let’s not forget our lips! Think your lips are protected because you’ve coated them with your favorite lip balm or gloss – think again!

 

Did you know, according to an article in the Washington Post, that “certain lip balms and glosses can actually increase your chances of developing skin cancer”?! Applying something clear and shiny to your lips, such as a gloss, actually increases light penetration and ups your chances of developing cancer. The article suggests that women who are planning to be outdoors for more than 20 minutes at a time should use a lip sunblock that is SPF 30 or more, ideally, and avoid shiny lipstick unless they have a layer of sun protection underneath. colorescience_lipshine

 

With that said, at Evolutions Medical Spa Santa Barbara, we have a solution for you! Colorescience now has an SPF 35 lip gloss – LIP SHINE SPF 35. This lip gloss is chemical-free, dye free and provides a physical sun block (it is 5% zinc oxide) in four elegant sheer colors.

 

Keep your lips luscious – and cancer-free! Colorescience Lip Shine SPF 35 in four shades, along with many other Colorescience products, are available at Evolutions. Book a complimentary Colorescience mineral make-up consultation by calling 805.687.0212.
