Sunscreen is a must for everyone, especially redheads. Sunscreen will not only protect your gorgeous skin from painful sunburns, but it will prevent aging, sun spots, and potentially, skin cancer.
In fact, did you know redheads are more prone to having melanoma even if they don’t get a sunburn? It’s true. So, we must take extra precautions to stay safe and make sure to get checked regularly by a dermatologist.
We’ve tested and deemed 16 sunscreen brands ‘redhead friendly‘ for 2017:
1. For the face
Alba Botanica Very Emollient Sunscreen Facial SPF 30: Our co-founder, Stephanie, took this with her while on her honeymoon to Mexico and didn’t sunburn once. It contains a special formula designed for facial use. Plus, it’s hypoallergenic, biodegradable, gluten-free and won’t clog pores.
2. For those with sensitive skin
Blue Lizard Australian Sunscreen, Sensitive SPF 30+: We have been fans of this sunscreen for years, so it’s no wonder it’s at the top of our list and included in the H2BAR Box a few times. This sunscreen was made for sensitive skin. It’s chemical-free, fragrance-free and paraben-free!
3. For those wanting a lightweight sunscreen
Kiehl’s Super Fluid UV Defense SPF 50+: Looking for an ultra-lightweight sunscreen loaded with antioxidant vitamin E? Then, this sunscreen was made for you.
4. For everyday use
Aveeno Protect + Hydrate Lotion Sunscreen With Broad Spectrum SPF 30: Contains ACTIVE NATURALS Colloidal Oatmeal to deliver superior broad spectrum UVA/UVB sun protection while hydrating skin to keep it soft, smooth and feeling healthier than before you went in the sun.
5. An extra delicate sunscreen
TriDerma Light & Delicate Sunscreen: It offers maximum UVA/UVB protection with essential antioxidants. Helps protect skin against unwanted signs of aging due to harmful sun exposure. You can also use as a daily moisturizer for face and body to keep skin looking healthy. This product was included in the April H2BAR Beauty Subscription Box.
6. Perfect while at the beach
Sun Bum Sunscreen Lotion SPF 30: We first tried this product in 2012 and fell in love. It’s a super moisturizing sunscreen that’s enriched with Vitamin E, an antioxidant that helps to neutralize free radicals, which are the main cause of premature skin aging.
7. For those looking to combat signs of aging
Murad Invisiblur Perfecting Shield Broad Spectrum SPF 30: The invisible skin-perfecting shield replaces your treatment, primer and SPF to immediately blur and correct while combating signs of aging. Mushroom peptides treat lines and wrinkles by helping aid regulation of collagen and elastin while a soft-focus complex smoothes and blurs imperfections for improved tone and texture.
8. For the spray lovers out there
COOLA Body SPF 15 Unscented Sunscreen Spray: Spritz your sunscreen on the go with this clear, continuous spray that’s infused with anti-aging antioxidants. We recommend spraying the sunscreen onto your hands and then rubbing it in. Do not spray anywhere near an open flame.
9. For the on-the-go redheads
MDSolarSciences Mineral Sunscreen Stick Broad Spectrum SPF 40: A convenient, portable way to get your UVA/UVB protection while you’re on the go. The lightweight formula is naturally derived from safer mineral UV protection that reduces the risk of photo-aging and skin cancer. It also contains a boost of antioxidants to keep you healthy.
10. If you’re looking for a soothing sunscreen
