6 ‘Redhead Friendly’ Approved Sunscreens for 2021

For most redheads, we would agree the sun is our frenemy. On the one hand, we love feeling the warm weather on our skin but are dreading having to lather up in sunscreen for the next six months. Plus, there’s the trouble of finding a sunscreen that will work for our unique redhead skin. With so many sunscreen options out there, here are five ‘redhead friendly’ sunscreens to help you protect your skin from the sun’s harsh UV rays.

1. CeraVe’s AM Facial Moisturizing Lotion with Sunscreen

Growing up with chronic acne skin, my dermatologist recommended this facial moisturize to me, and I never looked back. This drugstore find not only protects the skin from the sun’s rays, but it is an excellent moisturizer to introduce into your everyday routine. This 30 SPF lotion doesn’t clog pores and restores skin’s natural barrier to keep redhead skin moisturized and protected against the sun all day long. Even if I forget the sunscreen at home, I am confident in knowing that my face is protected with CeraVe.


2. Neutrogena Ultra-Sheer Dry-Touch Sunscreen SPF 55

The summer of my sophomore year of high school, I was put on Accutane for my uncontrollable breakouts. It was also the summer Neutrogena Sunscreen became my new best friend. With already having sensitive skin plus the added sensitivity from the Accutane, being outdoors that summer required at least one layer of Neutrogena Ultra-Sheer Sunscreen every day. It never left me brunt, and its non-comedogenic and light-weight formula helped keep my skin clean and never left a greasy feeling. Plus, it’s water-resistant, so I was always protected the minute I entered the water.

3. COOLA Organic Sunscreen & Lip Balm Sun Protection Kit 

COOLA’s travel kit is perfect for any redhead’s trip to the beach. Complete with a sunscreen spray, face sunscreen, liplux sun balm, and an after-sun lotion, your sensitive skin will not have to worry about the sun. This sunscreen is made with Beeswax, Coconut oil, and Shea Butter to restore dry skin and soften skin upon application. You will also feel great too using this sunscreen as it is reef-friendly, cruelty-free, and non-GMO.


4.Clinique Board Spectrum SPF 50 Mineral Sunscreen Fluid for Face 

As a redhead, I swear by Clinique products. They are made with safe ingredients and tested by dermatologists and have never left my skin feeling irritated. Clinique’s Board Spectrum sunscreen offers protection and moisturizes sensitive, dry, oily, and combination skin. Free of parabens and fragrances, this facial sunscreen lacks ingredients known to irritate the skin, especially the skin of a redhead. Designed to wear alone or under makeup, Clinque’s Board Spectrum Face Sunscreen can become apart of your daily skin routine or your go-to face sunscreen.  

5. SunBum Original Sunscreen Spray 50 SPF

Dedicated to making products that are friendly to the environment, animals, and those we care about, Sunbum products are vegan, cruelty-free, gluten-free, sulfate-free, and paraben-free. Made with Vitamin E to help prevent the skin from aging prematurely, it is easy to use and quick to dry. Plus, if you’re looking to go even a step further, SunBum has your gorgeous red hair covered with their Scalp and Hair Mist that keeps your scalp safe from the sun. 

6. BU SPF 50 Fragrance Free Sunscreen Spray Full Size

Found in the H2BAR shop, this gentle, non-irritating SPF 50 Fragrance-Free spray provides high sunburn protection (98% UVB). When you apply it, it goes on smooth and easy. No parabens, preservatives, nanoparticles, nuts, nut oil, gluten, dairy, egg, soy, sulphites or colorants have been added.
