Unlock Your Summer Glow: Your Guide to Radiant Summer Skin
As the sun graces us with its Vitamin D and warmth, it's time to revamp your skincare routine to protect and nourish your skin during repeated sun exposure and high temps. At Ardent Market, we believe in the power of natural and intentional skincare. In this comprehensive guide, we'll share tips, tricks, and product recommendations to help you achieve a healthy, glowing complexion all summer long, and even into the dryer autumn months.
Shield Your Skin with Sun Protection
Sunscreen is your best friend during summer! Opt for a broad-spectrum sunscreen with at least SPF 30 to safeguard your skin against harmful UVA and UVB rays. Apply it generously to all exposed areas of your body, including your face, neck, and hands. Reapply every two hours, especially if you're swimming or sweating. Consider using a natural, mineral-based sunscreen for added eco-friendliness.
Sweat, excess oil, and environmental pollutants can wreak havoc on your skin during summer. Cleanse your face twice a day with a gentle cleanser that removes impurities and cuts through sunscreen/makeup without stripping away essential moisture. Look for products that contain natural ingredients like charcoal, aloe vera, green tea, or chamomile to cleanse and hydrate your skin.

Banish Excess Oil & Soothe
Combat excess sebum production and keep shine at bay with a natural toner. Look for toners that contain witch hazel, tea tree oil, or rose water to control oiliness and minimize the appearance of pores. Spritz on throughout the day to refresh and rebalance your skin.

Hydration is Key
Hydration is crucial for maintaining healthy skin in the scorching summer heat. Use a lightweight, water-based moisturizer that replenishes moisture without feeling heavy or greasy. Add a couple drops of essence or face oil to create a powerhouse of nutrients and lock in moisture. Look for hydrating ingredients such as hyaluronic acid, ceramides, or fatty alcohols to keep your skin plump and supple.

Nourish from Within
