Redheads have heard others tell them, “You should avoid the sun at all costs!” It’s true, redheads should keep their skin safe, but they do not need to hibernate all summer long! Knowing how to keep your skin protected is key because it will keep your porcelain skin toned and young. Many redheads use sunless tanners to get a healthy, natural glow because the color looks gorgeous with happy freckles popping out!
But, what about good ol’ fashioned tanning in the sun? Can redheads get a tan? Most would argue and say no, but I believe any redhead can get glowing skin with these following steps:
It is definitely not easy to get color if you’re a redhead. My advice is that you need to have patience and consistently use the right regimen when out in the sun. Remember these following rules:
Try to constantly alternate between sun and shade.
Avoid the blazing mid-day sun.
Use “redhead friendly” sunscreen and reapply every two hours.
2. Wash It Off
After your time in the sun is over, you’ll need to wash off all of the sunscreens. More importantly, you need to give your body a good scrub to get rid of the dead skin cells. Try a product like TapaReef Sunscreen Remover Wipes. Featured in the May H2BAR Box!
Finally, after your evening shower, give your fragile freckled skin a decent cool down with Vaseline Total Moisture Aloe Fresh. This after-sun lotion feels light, smells amazing and penetrates deeply into the skin.
If you keep up this routine of protection, hydration and cooling off, you’ll notice a healthy glow to your skin in no time.
Enjoy your skin and Rock it like a Redhead!
