How To Tell if Your Lips Are Sunburned

Sunburned lips can really hurt. They feel dry, tender, and sometimes swollen. Here's how you can tell if your lips got too much sun. 

First, they might look redder than usual. Or, if you have darker skin, they could appear more purple or brown. Another sign is your lips feeling extra dry or tight. They might even crack a bit when you smile.

Peeling is another clue. A day or two after getting too much sun, your lips might start to flake or peel. It's like your skin's way of trying to heal. Some people also feel a tingling or burning sensation. That's a sign your lips are definitely sunburned.

It's important to take sunburned lips seriously. They're not just uncomfortable. They can lead to bigger problems like cold sores or long-term damage. Plus, it's a sign your skin got more UV rays than it can handle. This can happen to anyone, no matter their skin type.

If your lips are sunburned, don't worry. There are simple ways to know how to care for sunburned lips. Keep them moisturized, stay hydrated, and give them a break from the sun. Remember, protecting your lips is just as important as taking care of the rest of your skin. 

How To Care for Sunburned Lips

Sunburned lips can feel better in just a few days. Usually, they heal in about a week. How quickly depends on how bad the burn is and how you care for them. Here are some of the steps you can take to care for your sunburned lips. 

Immediate Relief

When you realize your lips have been sunburned, act quickly. Cool water or a cold compress can soothe the burn. Just dab gently on your lips for a few minutes. This reduces the heat and eases the pain. Make sure the water is not too cold. You want to calm the burn, not shock your sensitive skin.

Keep Them Moisturized

Dryness can make the discomfort worse. Use a gentle, hydrating lip balm or aloe vera. Both provide moisture and help heal the burn. Apply as often as needed. Avoid flavored or scented balms. They can irritate your sunburned lips.

Stay Hydrated

How to care for sunburned lips? The simplest answer is to drink plenty of water. It helps your skin heal from the inside. When your body is well-hydrated, it can repair the sun damage more efficiently. Try to drink at least eight glasses of water a day.

Protect From Further Damage

Keep your lips covered when you're outside. Use a scarf or a hat with a wide brim. This helps protect your lips from more UV rays. Staying in the shade is also a good idea. Avoid direct sunlight, especially during the peak hours between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m.

Choose the Right Lip Balm

Finally, a good lip balm is crucial for healing and protecting your lips. Look for one that's vegan and offers SPF protection. Vegan lip balms are made without animal products. They often contain natural ingredients that are gentle and effective for healing sunburned lips. 

A balm with SPF can protect your lips from further sun damage. Applying this kind of lip balm regularly can make a big difference in how quickly your lips heal and how well they're protected in the future.

Why Trilipiderm Stands Out

Our ingredient philosophy caters especially to sensitive skin. All our products, including this lip balm, are safe for all skin types, free from harsh chemicals, and never tested on animals. We're backed by dermatologists and pharmacists, so you know you're choosing a brand trusted by professionals.

From its origins in Jackson Hole, Wyoming, Trilipiderm understands the battle against dryness like no other. Our hydration solutions draw inspiration from the resilience of local vegetation, using botanicals that support healthy skin function. This commitment to natural, effective ingredients, combined with our eco-friendly practices, makes our SPF lip balm a guilt-free necessity for both men and women.

Applying it twice daily or as needed can offer immediate relief and long-term health benefits for your lips. And with its petroleum-free formula, your skin breathes and retains moisture more effectively.

In a nutshell, the Lipid-E Lips Broad Spectrum SPF Lip Balm by Trilipiderm isn't just a product; it's a holistic solution to make sure you know how to care for your sunburned lips. It protects, hydrates, and respects both your skin and the planet. Ready to experience the difference for yourself?
