All too often, men don’t think about taking care of their lips—indeed, they may go several days without even thinking about their lips. But our lips are just as much a part of our skin as anything else, and, as such, they’re exposed to the same suite of damaging agents: potentially harmful sun rays and desiccating air, most notably. Your lips can be sunburned without you particularly knowing about it, and everyone is familiar with the uncomfortable, even painful feeling of heavily chapped, cracked lips. In addition to the disagreeable physical sensation of burned or parched lips, there’s the visual angle, too: You want your lips looking full, fresh and moisturized, not wounded and angry.
Here you’ll find an assortment of lip-care products designed to treat and ward off these conditions. None will break the bank, but they’re all rich in high-quality ingredients formulated to soothe, protect, balm and refresh. Maybe you’re seeking nothing more than a solid, everyday lip balm with basic SPF protection and hydrating properties. You’ll find good options here. But maybe you suffer from particularly acute issues, such as chronically dry, unpleasantly chapped lips. Seek out a robust treatment to get you back on track.
