Adding SPF Lipcare to my routine
We all know how important it is to add SPF to our skincare routine but even then I still haven't really added it to my lip care (Yes i know what no SPF) well before i damage any more of my lips, i have finally added some good protection to my lip are routine. I will share which drugstore lip product I choose and use.
Here are a few of my recommendations which will help protect the surface of your lips during your day to day lives.
Most Carmex lip balms have SPF in their range.
