La Roche-Posay SPF Lip Balm Review
La Roche-Posay's arsenal has a separate sunscreen line, which includes a convenient stick balm that you can safely trust to protect your lips from UV radiation. Anthelios XL has a high degree of protection - SPF 50+.
The formula based on a combination of sunscreens called Mexoplex becomes literally a shield behind which the skin is completely safe. This complex protects against UV rays of different spectrum - UVA and UVB. The texture of this colorless balm is not "high humidity" , so it can be applied not only on the lips, but also on other areas of the skin that need special protection, such as moles, scars, tattoo areas and other vulnerable areas.
La Roche-Posay have ensured that skin protection in the open sun is provided for about 6 hours. The formula, by the way, is also resistant to water: in a humid environment, it does not lose ground up to 40 minutes.
How to use sunscreen lip balm?
It is best to apply sunscreen lip balm half an hour before going out into the open sun so that the product has time to be absorbed into the skin: this will provide more reliable protection. Remember that double application will not increase the SPF - the effect of the filters will remain at the same level, regardless of how much the product is used.
Renew the coverage according to the sensations: if you feel that the balm is "eaten" , that there is a feeling of dryness and tightness, reapply the product.
Don't forget that SPF balm is still not pure sunscreen. The presence of filters in the composition of such cosmetics does not mean at all that after applying the product you can not limit your exposure to the sun. Even the highest degree of protection 50+, the manufacturers themselves warn, is not one hundred percent insurance against unpleasant consequences for the skin. It is important to track the time spent in the sun and go into the shade without waiting for signs of discomfort when the skin begins to redden and “burn”.
