Using proper redhead-approved sun protection is crucial in the summer months. Due to a lack of melanin, redheads burn more quickly and more severely than those with other skin tones. Lack of sun protection can lead to sun damage on the skin, premature aging, and painful sunburns. 

One easy way to protect your skin this summer is to use sunscreen mists. Mists are great for layering on top of other ‘Redhead Friendly’ sunscreens for more protection or touching up SPF throughout the day.

Here are a few of our favorite ‘redhead approved’ sunscreen mists for redheads to try summer:
