Redhead Skin – What is a redhead skin ?

Redhead skin is not very large in the world population. Indeed, there is much more red hair in the European continent than elsewhere in the world. The cause of redhead skin and red hair is the lack of mutation of the two genes that are responsible for hair color. As these two genes are responsible for the brown-black and red-yellow color and they are nonexistent on the redhead skin, this is the reason why the redheads are very pale and have red hair.

On redhead skin we notice pretty freckles that are also called ephelids. These freckles are the result of the distribution of pigmentation made by the melanocyte that produces the melanosome. If the melanosome is well distributed it allows the skin to tan evenly. But this is not the case for the redhead skin. Which means that as soon as a redhead skin exposed to the sun, as the melanosome is not well distributed, it forms freckles.

So some parts of the redhead skin becomes darker thanks to the melansosme and the rest of the skin remains pale. It is this peculiarity that makes the redhead skin fragile. Redhead skin is not protected against UVB rays, which makes the risk of skin cancer much more likely. Indeed, a redhead skin that is exposed to the sun without protection can quickly cause melanoma. This skin cancer can appear anywhere on the body from head to toe and even in the scalp.
