People finally seem to be catching on to the fact that our lips are just as susceptible to sun damage as the rest of our faces. That's why it's so important to incorporate a lip balm with sunscreen into your morning routine (even better: Keep one on your person at all times). The best SPF lip balms will contain an SPF of 30 or higher, in accordance with the American Academy of Dermatology's guidelines, as well as hydrating ingredients to prevent dryness and cracking. And balms don't have to be all business, because in recent years, they've gotten jazzy updates in the forms of yummy scents and lip gloss-like finishes.
Ahead, you'll find five of the best lip balms with sunscreen to choose from, including basic, under-$5 balms and all-natural formulas that smell (or dare we say taste?) as good as they feel. Just remember to reapply your balm of choice frequently if you're out in the sun (the Skin Cancer Foundation says every two hours, but I'd say whenever you feel it wearing off).
