For lots of redheads, we have to learn about skincare and makeup through trial and error. This leads to many redheads using products that aren’t right for their skin and may cause skin irritation. If you’re ready to make some changes to your redhead skincare routine, use these tips to make it more ‘Redhead Friendly’.
1. Opt for a creamy face wash
Creamy cleansers are soft and gentle on sensitive skin and will keep your face hydrated when washing. Some of our favorites include Earth Science A-D-E Creamy Fruit Oil Face Cleanser and PCA Skin Creamy Cleanser.
2. Add in Vitamin C
Vitamin C is a great way to keep your skin looking radiant and healthy. You can add Vitamin C into your routine in a number of ways including a Vitamin C serum, a Vitamin C cleanser like the Murad Environmental Shield Essential Cleanser or even a Vitamin C moisturizer.
3. Get a silk pillowcase
Not only are silk pillowcases great for keeping your skin clear and pores clog-free, but they will also help to keep your red hair from frizzing and tangling!
4. Try using niacinamide
For overall improved skin health in a ‘Redhead-Friendly’ way, try using Niacinamide which has numerous benefits for your skin.
5. Use sensitive skin-friendly retinol
Retinol is a great way to keep skin looking youthful and elastic, but it can be harsh on sensitive skin. Try a sensitive skin-friendly product like the PCA Skin Retinol Treatment for Sensitive Skin or even a plant-based retinol alternative.
6. Always use SPF
As a redhead, one of the most important things you can do for your skin is to apply SPF every single day. Sunburn and sun damage can occur year-round and redheads are already at an increased risk of skin cancer.
