Summer has unofficially arrived and that means it’s time to share with you our top redhead summer beauty tips to help kick off this gorgeous season ahead.

It is known that redheads have a greater risk of developing melanoma than a non-redhead, so it is very important to always wear sunscreen and stay extra sun protected while enjoying the outdoors. We all want to keep our red hair looking fabulous and skin glowing while doing so. If you’re escaping from the cold climate on a vacation or waiting impatiently for warmer days, try these ‘redhead friendly’ beauty tips to prepare your skin and red hair for the summer:

Hair:

Shiseido Refreshing Sun Protection, SPF 16: Many redheads forget to apply sunscreen on their red hair and scalp, but it burns in the sun, too! This product is great because it is water-resistant, lightweight and prevents any sunburn from happening.

Sunless Tanner:

St. Tropez Self Tan Express Advanced Bronzing MousseWe always talk about different sunless tanners, but this is our top favorite. It will give every redhead that perfect glow while keeping your delicate skin safe from harmful rays. We apply this product a few hours before bed and wake up with bronzed ready-for-the-sun skin.

Makeup:

We always apply these two products (with SPF!) on our skin to stay protected all day long.

It Cosmetics CC+ EYE Color Corrector Full Coverage Cream

Superbalanced Silk Makeup Broad Spectrum SPF 15

Lips:

Elizabeth Arden Eight Hour® Cream Lip Protectant Stick Sheer Tint SPF 15: This lipstick lasts all day and includes SPF. What more could you want?

Eyes:

Recently, we have invested in UV-Blocking Silicone Hydrogel contact lenses. When we aren’t wearing our sunglasses, the contacts help our light colored eyes from being damaged from the sun.

Rock it like a Redhead!
