The 5 Best Drugstore Moisturizers for Redheads

All under $16

It is well known that there is no association between the cost of a moisturizer and its ability to moisturize the skin. Approximately 80% of all facial moisturizers, eye creams, night creams, serums and anti-aging creams have similar ingredients. There is a fascination amongst women that the more they spend on a product, the better it will work.

We’re here to share 5 ‘redhead friendly’ approved drugstore moisturizing products thanks to Debra Jaliman MD, Professor & Author of Skin Rules. “Redheads, there are some great drugstore moisturizers available for sensitive skin, it’s just a matter of finding the right ones,” she shares.

Debra Jaliman MD breaks down why each product is great for a redhead, particularly if they have sensitive skin. Keep in mind, individuals with sensitive skin should avoid products containing fragrance, retinoids, and alpha/beta hydroxy acids. Practice using products with the fewest ingredients.
