Lip lightening can be done naturally with the right combination of ingredients, but the key is in protection against further UV damage. ILLUMINATE lip lightening lip balm is successful because it offers both! Lemon and turmeric are a powerful combination for lightening hyperpigmentation or dark spots on lips, which often appear due to sun damage or smoking. Zinc oxide SPF 30 is present in ILLUMINATE to help prevent UV damage and dark spots from reappearing. Safe for all skin types and tones.
