Summer Lips

Summer not only dries out your hair and skin but can seriously damage your lips too. An antioxidant-packed lip balm, gloss or lipstick can help repair the harm and prevent dryness, discoloration, and wrinkles. You see, stress (whether from the sun, pollution, or too much partying) creates free radicals—if you’ve seen a peeled apple turn brown, you’ve seen free radicals at work. The good news is that antioxidants neutralize free radicals and help prevent any damage before it starts. Antioxidants are naturally found in your body (and in food you eat), but because they’re constantly preventing free radicals while you’re out in the sun, you need to replenish them. And unlike sunscreen or moisturizer, antioxidants work from within your body to protect your cells. So the more antioxidants you get, the more they can work to replenish and guard cells, protecting you from the sun and healing what damage has already been done.

3  Bite Beauty Luminous Crème Lipstick

These richly-colored lipsticks contain resveratrol antioxidants (which are found in red wine). In fact, each lipstick contains the equivalent of five glasses of wine! All natural ingredients such as organic shea butter, vitamins A and E and food grade colors also ensure that when you get that inevitable smudge of lipstick on your teeth, it’s actually good for you!
