Not to pat ourselves on the back or anything but our sunscreen game is pretty strong. We apply it daily and even got ourselves a cute floppy hat for when we’re sitting outside. Alas, there is one thing—or place, rather—that we’ve been neglecting altogether until now.

Uh-oh, where is it? Your lips. The skin around your lips is extremely delicate and has less natural protection against the elements.
