It’s Redhead Appreciation Day! How nice! How times have changed – so much nicer than automatically getting accused of witchcraft and burned at the stake!
If you know a real redhead, it’s good to know the real story.
The very gene variance that results in red hair also results in lower immune function and higher inflammatory response.
This means that redheads are more susceptible to illness and sensitivities.
I sympathize. My redhead sensitivities and higher inflammatory response played out in very painful adult acne.
It wasn’t just hard to look at. It burned, itched, throbbed and ached.
I’m so glad that is past me now. In part due to diet changes, in part due to some vitamin and mineral supplements, in part due to skincare product changes. (If you ever want to know what helped me, to see if it can help you or a loved one, just ask me.)
One thing’s for sure, my Therapie Silk & Bamboo Pillowcase doesn’t just help my ginger curls look shiny and smooth, it really was soothing to press my hot, sensitive, upset face against when I slept.
I am fiercely loyal to my Pillowcase to this day, for that very reason!
Happy Redhead Appreciation Day!
