10 Redhead-Friendly Oil-Free Moisturizers 

Get the hydration without the oils!

Now that we’re in the swing of summer, it’s time to start thinking about summer redhead skincare, specifically a ‘redhead friendly’ moisturizer. The summer heat can leave your skin feel parched and damaged. That’s why it’s so important to have a good summer moisturizer that leaves your skin feeling lightweight and nourished.

During the summer months, it’s especially important to stay away from oily products. The natural oils of your face, combined with summer sweat, will leave your skin a slippery mess if your skincare has oil in it too. 

Looking for a new oil-free moisturizer? Check out these ten ‘Redhead-Friendly’ approved options:

For the nighttime
