Springtime brings brighter days and a need for protection against the sun. If you’re looking to avoid any potential skin damage, these products can come to the rescue:

1. NIVEA Smoothness Broad Spectrum SPF 15 Sunscreen Lip Care

What most people forget to pay attention to during warm weather are their lips. However, Nivea Smoothness Broad Spectrum SPF 15 Sunscreen Lip Care, available at Target for $3.49, is here to help. This formula, which includes broad-spectrum SPF 15 sunscreen, can prevent lips from getting sunburnt. This product is enriched with a variety of nourishing oils to keep lips feeling moisturized and soft.

Directions: Apply 15 minutes before sun exposure and reapply at least every two hours. 

2. Lush Unicorn Lip Scrub

Another great product for the lips is Lush Unicorn Lip Scrub, available at Lush for $12.95, which is perfect for getting rid of dead skin. The scrub leaves lips smooth and plump. With castor oil and organic virgin plum oil, this product is gentle on the lips and won’t irritate them.

Directions: Use a small amount to scrub your lips soft, then lick off the excess.

3. Neutrogena Clear Face Liquid- Lotion Sunblock SPF 55

Springtime is great, but sunburn sure isn’t. Sunburn is painful and leaves skin uneven. However, the Neutrogena Clear Face Liquid-Lotion Sunblock SPF 55, available at Ulta for $14.99, will help the face remain even and burn-free. 

This lotion is good for all skin types. It is ultra-light, oil-free, waterproof and sweatproof. It is perfect to use as a daily lotion and will leave skin with a matte finish.

Directions: Apply 15 minutes before sun exposure.

4. W12 Benefits Instant healthy hair treatment

The sun does not just damage skin and lips. It can also have detrimental effects on hair. W12 Benefits Instant Healthy Hair Treatment, available at Walgreens for $17.35, can prevent that. As a result of the 12 benefits this spray offers—sun protection being among them—one will see quick results. The product also seals color and smoothes frizz, repairs damage, prevents split ends and moisturizes and strengthens hair.

Directions: Mist over damp hair, and you’ll be good to go for the day.
