As redheads, we have notoriously sensitive skin, making it all the more important to be mindful of how we nurture and protect it. Most often, ‘skincare‘ is associated with facial beauty; bringing to mind thoughts of moisturizers, serums, and treatment masks. The skin is our largest organ and covers the entire body –– with one of the most overlooked and under-treated areas being our hands. Although we use them for so many things on a daily basis, we very rarely give them the attention they deserve. So, show your hands the love they need with these well-rounded ‘redhead friendly’ list of products.
