Why Squalane Oil Will Do Wonders For Your Redhead Skin
APRIL 22, 2021
I recently discovered the benefits of squalane oil when a skincare brand, ClarityRx, sent us over their Nourish Your Skin 100% Squalane Moisturizing Face Oil. After trying it on my redhead skin for several days, I noticed my complexion was brighter, a small dry patch near my mouth was gone and my skin felt super hydrated.
So, what exactly is squalane oil and why should you be applying it on your redhead skin too? We asked a few experts to weigh in on this anti-aging oil.
What is squalane oil?
US board-certified dermatologist, Dr. Anna H. Chacon, MD FAAD shared with us the important attributes of this oil. “Squalane oil is a common lipid produced by human cells and is a component of sebum. Though we produce it naturally, its production is drastically decreased after we reach our 30s, which contributes to the dryness we commonly observe with aging. It can be found in animal and plant sources and helps to protect the surface of the skin from peroxidation due to UV light.”
