Protecting yourself against UV radiation from the sun is more and more important when more research shows how it actually causes some 80% of signs of ageing. One way to do that is using substances from the nature. This was the way we got to Astaxanthin that is a red substance that can help with this.
And surprisingly, it can be produced naturally in the freshwater micro algae Haematococcus pluvialis. Which sounds fantastic! Especially as there’s some proof it can help against cancer due to its antioxidant properties. It can also help to smooth wrinkles, make age spots smaller, and help maintain skin moisture and even give a helping hand in men’s fertility. It’s also the reason why shrimp’s red.
So we were positively surprised when we found it’s the ingredient that does the job of protecting your lips from the sun in Youth Lab’s Lip Balm. How cool is that? And yes, it’s naturally in this month’s Out’n’Proud pack.
Additionally, it offers instant nourishment and moisture to dehydrated and chapped lips. Its ingredients are selected to act synergistically in order to relieve and rejuvenate the lips, while naturally protecting against UV radiation and extreme environmental conditions. Plus, it’s colourless, so you can use it without looking like you’ve applied lipstick.
