Stay moisturized & exfoliated
When our skin is dry it can look ashier and even paler. Keep your skin moisturized to keep it looking healthy. Exfoliating can also bring out your natural glow because it increases blood flow.
Avoid white cast SPF
SPF that leaves a white cast will have your skin looking even whiter than it already is. Instead, use SPF that goes on without color, or opt for something with a little glow in it.

Try a texture or pattern
Instead of plain white, opt for a fun texture or white and color patterned swimsuit. It’s also a good idea to stick with pure white colors and skip anything cream, beige, or off-white so it has more contrast to your skin.

Your red hair and fair skin are unique and beautiful. The more confidence you have in yourself, the more confidence others will see in you so wear white and rock it like a redhead.
