I am not a fan of the sun. I have mentioned it in the past on my blog. It’s not that I don’t like sun (I do!) it’s just that the sun doesn’t like me. I get sunburned just thinking about the sun, let alone going out in it.
I never leave the house without sunscreen, especially on my face. My face and the area below my neck will burn before any place else on my body.
One place most people neglect to protect against the sun’s damaging rays is your life. Your lips can get sunburned too, and let me tell you from personal experience it’s VERY painful. Not only does it hurt A LOT it’s also gross when the skin starts to peel and your lips are covered in dried up skin. It’s not the most attracitve sight.
It’s important when you go out in the sun, whether it’s in the summer sun or the blistering cold winter, to protect your lips. One tasty option is Carmex Lip Balms. Carmex has several different varieities with an SPF 15. Their newest flavor is Ultra Smooth Pomegranate.
Pomegranate is quickly becoming a popular flavor, from lip balms to beverages. Not only are pomegrantes sweet and tangy, they may provide some health benefits too (there is research being done on thier health benfits).
Pomegranates are also a very interesting looking fruit.
I’ve had the opportunity to try our Carmex’s new Pomegranate balm. It has delicious scent and a subtle taste. It also feels SO GOOD on your lips. The creamy formula makes your lips feel so soft and moituized. Best of all the SPF helps to protect your lips from the sun. It’s a win-win situation all around.
The Carmex lip balms go on clear so you can use them under your other lip products. Even men and boys can use Carmex products (my son fights my daughter over the different flavors).
Carmex lip balms are available at many retail locations across the country. Look for the new Ultra Smooth Pomegranate too. You won’t be disappointed.
Carmex would like to give one lucky reader a cute yellow beach bag will with six SPF 15 lip balms including the new Pomegranate flavor. Thanks Carmex!
