Your lips are more susceptible to sun damage than any other part of your body and lip gloss magnifies UV rays, making lips even more likely to burn.
Always wear a lip balm with SPF 30, daily. And if you find new freckles on the lips, get them checked out immediately.

Regular exfoliation will help boost blood circulation, remove dead skin and aids cell renewal so lips will look plumper, healthier and brighter. You can buy lip exfoliators from brands, such as Clarins (Extra-Firming Lip and Contour Gentle Exfoliator, £17.36, Boots).
For a home remedy, use a very soft bristled toothbrush dipped in a lip balm like Vaseline and gently exfoliate using small light circular movements with the toothbrush on the lips. Or take a wet soft cloth and rub it gently over your lips in circular movements. It’s important to moisturise and hydrate your lips morning and night – honey and olive oil are great for lip nourishment.
