Since most redheads suffer from sensitive skin, many intensive acne and skin treatments can be a no-go. One of the more gentle treatments many people like to use is pore strips. They are a more gentle form of extraction and can help to clear clogged pores. Here are 5 of our favorite redhead-friendly/sensitive skin-friendly pore strips:
The absolute best option for sensitive skin is these hydrocolloid nose patches. They work a little differently than traditional pore strips, which usually harden and then pull the gunk out as you remove the pad. These nose patches work like pimple patches slowly extracting the ick from your pores gently with hydrocolloid.
Another hydrocolloid option is these strips from Peace Out. They are vegan, cruelty-free, gluten-free, made with clean ingredients, and meant for all skin types, including sensitive skin. One thing to watch for is they do have some retinol in them, so it’s best to use them sparingly or skip this brand if you’re highly sensitive to retinol.
Vegan, cruelty-free, oil-free, and marketed towards sensitive skin, the Lift Off pore strips are a must-try. They actually contain Aloe Vera Extract to help calm the skin and reduce any redness from removal.
Biore is probably the most well-known brand of pore strips and they are best sellers for a reason. These traditional pore strips do extract as you remove the strip helping you rid pores of build-up, dirt, oils, and blackheads.
Rock it like a Redhead!
