Why Your Lips Need SPF Too

As we all adapt our skincare routine to the dryer and colder days of winter or for trips to cold destinations, it’s crucial not to overlook the well-being of our lips. They deserve the same care and attention we give to the rest of our skin… which means they need SPF protection as well. Let’s take a look at exactly why SPF is so essential for your lips.

The sun doesn’t take a holiday!

The sun’s harmful UV rays can cause damage to your skin (and lips!) all year long, even on cloudy days. Your lips can be particularly vulnerable to damage as the skin on our lips is thinner, has less oil glands (helping to keep them moisturised) and has less melanin, which works to naturally protect against UV rays. 

Cancer Prevention

Prolonged and repeated exposure to the sun’s UV rays can increase the risk of developing skin cancer on the lips. If you spend long amounts of time in the sun, your lips are especially susceptible to developing actinic cheilitis, a precancerous condition otherwise known as “sailor’s lip.” If left untreated, it can progress to  squamous cell carcinoma (SCC), a common type of skin cancer. Applying an SPF 50+ Lip Balm helps provide a barrier against these harmful rays and reduces your risk of developing skin cancer.

Winter Rescue – Remedy!

Winter brings with it harsh conditions—cold temperatures, low humidity, and dry air. These elements can wreak havoc on your lips, leaving them dry, cracked, and chapped. But here’s where our SPF-packed lip balms come to the rescue! Not only do they provide sun protection but they also deliver deep hydration and nourishment to your lips. So pucker up and choose your favorite flavor!

Dry vs. Dehydrated Skin

Dry and dehydrated skin are two common skin concerns that many people face. While they may seem similar, there are some differences between the two that may just help you find the right product you’re looking for.

Dry Skin

Dry skin is a skin type that can often feel tight and flaky. It is characterised by a lack of oil production needed to retain moisture and help build a protective barrier against environmental stressors. Dry skin typically requires a heavier moisturiser to help restore the skin’s natural oils.

Dehydrated Skin

Dehydrated skin, on the other hand, is a skin condition that can affect any skin type. It occurs when the skin lacks water, causing it to feel tight and look dull. Dehydrated skin can be caused by a variety of factors, including environmental factors such as sun exposure, air conditioning, and wind, as well as lifestyle factors such as alcohol consumption and not drinking enough water.

If you’re suffering from either of these conditions, ultra-hydrating ingredients such as Wild Rosella Extract will leave your skin looking smoother and more radiant.

The Wild Rosella Body Milk from We Are Feel Good Inc. is full of ingredients that will do your skin wonders. 

For those with dehydrated skin, the high water content found in Wild Rosella Extract, Niacinamide (Vitamin B3) and Aloe Vera will help to improve the skin barrier function by restoring its natural moisture balance, thus helping to reduce further water loss. The antioxidants found in these ingredients will also help to protect the skin from environmental damage, preventing further dehydration.

And for those with dry skin, the added skin loving goodies (Coconut Oil, Macadamia Oil, Shea Butter and Vitamin E) will help restore the skin’s natural oil production.

The non-greasy formula that is perfect for every day, all over body use, will leave your skin hydrated and nourished while you seek your adventures. And if you love the Wild Rosella Body Milk but want some added SPF protection then check out the Wild Rosella Sunscreen Lotion SPF50+.

Kakadu Plum: The Power of Vitamin C

The Vitamin C content in Kakadu Plum Extract is a powerful ingredient that can help you to maintain a healthy and radiant complexion. Here’s why you should add it to your skincare routine.

Antioxidant Properties

Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant that helps to protect your skin from harmful free radicals. These free radicals can damage your skin cells and cause signs of aging, such as fine lines and wrinkles. Along with the broad spectrum UV protection from Kakadu Plum SPF50+ Sunscreen Lotion you can reduce the accumulative damage of the sun to your skin.

Brightening Effects

Vitamin C can help to brighten your complexion by reducing the appearance of dark spots and uneven skin tone. It works by blocking the production of melanin, which is the pigment that causes discolouration in your skin. If you are looking to achieve a brighter, more radiant complexion, Vitamin C is a must-have in your skincare routine.

Boosts Collagen Production

Collagen is a protein that gives your skin its elasticity and firmness. As you age, your body produces less collagen, leading to fine lines, wrinkles, and sagging skin. Vitamin C-rich products, like Good Night Skin Restoring Cream, can help boost collagen production and keep your skin looking youthful and firm.

Improves Hydration

Vitamin C can help to improve the hydration levels in your skin. During the winter or long periods of time in air conditioning, the dry air can strip your skin of its natural oils, leading to dry, flaky skin. By using a body moisturiser, like Kakadu Plum Body Milk, you can help lock in moisture and keep your skin hydrated and healthy all day long.
