Why Zinc Oxide Lip Balm Should Always Be Kept Within Reach

Why Zinc Oxide Lip Balm Should Always Be Kept Within Reach

October 29, 2020

There are two types of people in the world: People who use SPF lip balm, and people who haven’t yet experienced sunburnt lips. If you’re a member of the second party, consider yourself lucky… but you never know when disaster might strike. 

The lips are a part of the body that a lot of people tend to forget about when it comes to sun damage. Of course, everyone worries about their skin - as they should! That’s why we’re such big proponents of eco-friendly sunscreen. But your lips are just as sensitive as the rest of your body when it comes to UV rays. 

Sunburnt lips are a lot like sunburnt skin, except on a smaller surface. They peel, they blister, and they sting like nothing else. This makes talking, eating, and even just breathing incredibly unpleasant. These negative effects can be pretty unpleasant for your significant other, too! 

Lots of sports require prolonged sun exposure. Think cycling, surfing, running, etc. Like we said before, you might not even think about your lips when it comes to the sun. You might feel completely covered as long as you have sunscreen everywhere else… but unfortunately, that’s not always the case. 

That’s where Zinc Oxide Lip Balm comes in. Protekt’s SPF 15 lip balm nourishes the lips and repels the sun’s damaging rays - all while using zinc oxide just like our other sunscreens do. Zinc Oxide Lip Balm is not only good for the sensitive skin of your lips, it’s also good for the environment. It doesn’t contain any harsh chemicals, and acts as a physical barrier between the sun and your lips. You can kiss that painful sunburn goodbye… literally!

Protekt Lip Balm is easy to take anywhere - it’s portable and compact. You might as well keep one in your purse, backpack, glove compartment, or any other means of travel that works for you. You won’t notice it’s there, but you’ll notice it’s gone the first time your lips get sunburnt, that’s for sure. 

You never know when you might need it. Imagine a college marching band musician practicing drills on a hot turf for nine hours a day. They’re being baked by the sun’s rays while learning their band’s new marching show - at first, without instruments. Everyone has layered on the sunscreen, but like most do, they’ve forgotten about their lips. When it comes time to get out their instrument, their lips are sunburnt and painful to the touch - let alone play their instrument. Making any sound is nearly impossible, and when they do, it’s excruciating. This makes for not only horrible pain, but a bad day of practice. 

If that musician had packed Zinc Oxide Lip Balm into their instrument case and applied it along with their sunscreen, they’d be well-prepared to play the music that goes along with the drill they learned while in the hot sun. 

Your lips are important. You can take care of them by applying Zinc Oxide Lip Balm every day - not just when it’s hot and sunny.
