Sunburned Lips

Like the skin on your body, the lips can also develop sunburn. Additionally, because lips don't have much melanin to protect them, they are more susceptible to sunburn and damage from UV rays. Sunburn on the lips can make the lips swell and become extra sensitive and dry. If the burn is severe, it can even blister and get infected. Beauty experts and dermatologists say that if you have a lip sunburn, it's crucial to stay away from sun exposure to prevent additional damage. You should also avoid salty or spicy foods because they can further irritate and dry out the area. To prevent sun damage to your lip area, apply and reapply a lip balm with SPF throughout the day, wear a wide-brimmed hat outdoors, and avoid peak sun hours when UV rays are at their strongest.
