Do you love sun-kissed skin just as much as we do?

Tanned skin looks healthy and glowing. But it's probably no surprise to you that overexposure to the sun can lead to skin damage and accelerated aging, right?

Besides the well-known sun protection, such as sunscreen, head covering and sun umbrellas, you should also pay attention to your intake of vitamins and minerals. The B vitamins and many other vitamins and minerals have the fascinating ability to protect your skin from the inside out. 

In this article, we'll introduce you to 5 of the best supplements for summer.

Let's dig in!

Sun is not only bad for your skin

In a reasonable dose, sunlight is very healthy. It supports the healing of the skin and contributes to general well-being. The reason for it is easy: Sun stimulates the happiness hormone serotonin!

With 15 to 20 minutes of sunlight a day, the body begins to produce vitamin D. To meet the daily vitamin D requirement, about a quarter of the body's surface (face, neck, décolleté, parts of arms and legs) needs to be exposed to sunlight. 80-90 % of the body's vitamin D needs are produced by the body itself thanks to the sun.

Vitamin D has important functions for the intestines, bones, teeth, muscles, the immune and hormone system.

The key, however, is to be careful and enjoy the sun in moderation. Sunscreen and a head covering should be a matter of course. In addition, extended sunbathing during peak hours between 10am and 3pm should be avoided to prevent skin cancer risks.

Our tip for choosing sun cream: Choose a mineral sun cream. Unlike conventional sun creams, these don´t contain chemical ingredients.

5 supplements for summer

Nutrients, minerals and vitamins are essential for good health. A deficiency can have a negative impact on the skin. 

We want to help you to cover yourself with all the vitamins that will help you enjoy the summer and the sun to the fullest. 

1. B vitamins

Many B vitamins show positive effects on the skin. No wonder, that vitamin B is so popular in skin care. It improves the skin's ability to regenerate and helps in the formation of ceramides. These ensure that our skin barrier functions perfectly. Thus, our skin is protected and remains well hydrated. Hydration of the skin is essential for beautiful, healthy skin. In addition, vitamin B reduces the visibility of pore size and can even reduce wrinkles. In summer, the antibiotic effect of vitamin B is especially interesting. Because it helps skin redness to subside more quickly and skin that tends to dryness in summer is perfectly moisturized.

You don't need to spend money on expensive skin creams! Supply your skin from the inside with important vitamins! Our vitamin B complex contains all 8 essential B vitamins: B1, B2, B3, B5, B6, Biotin, Folic Acid & B12. It effectively provides you with high-quality vitamins and thus can help maintain beautiful skin.

2. Vitamin E

Vitamin E is a powerful antioxidant and one of the best summer supplements for the skin.

It protects the skin from sun damage and absorbs the sun's harmful UV light when it reaches the skin.

Normally, the body produces vitamin E through sebum, an oily substance that is released through the pores of the skin. In the right balance, sebum helps nourish the skin and prevents dryness. Vitamin E also helps treat skin inflammation. Especially in summer, it can also help you recover from a mild sunburn faster and with fewer symptoms.

Many cosmetic companies have already discovered the superpower of vitamin E. You can find vitamin E in many face and skin creams. However, it is much more effective to take vitamin E orally instead of putting it on the skin.

3. Collagen

Collagen has become known primarily as a beauty protein. It gives the skin more structure and elasticity and also has positive effects on hair and nails. It is the most important structural protein of our skin and connective tissue.

But collagen can do so much more!

Read our article about the importance of collagen and learn why it is so essential for your body!

In summer, collagen can help you repair damaged skin cells and sunburn can even heal faster.

If you love outdoor activities just as much as we do, then you should pay close attention now: Unfortunately, it's not uncommon to sprain an ankle while hiking in the mountains or walking on the beach. Collagen supplements can be a great helper here. Soothing joint inflammation, they're the perfect companion for your summer plans. Check out our BEAUTY+ COLLAGEN & HYALURONIC ACID supplement and be perfectly prepared for summer!

4. Vitamin C

You thought vitamin C was only good for your immune system and protected you from flu and colds? That's correct, but maybe you didn't know that vitamin C is also the best friend of collagen. Without enough vitamin C, it is very difficult for the body to use collagen properly. In addition, vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant and is found in high concentrations in the epidermis (outer layer of skin) and dermis (inner layer of skin).

Our VITAMIN C COMPLEX provides you with a 100% natural high dose of vitamin C. The combination of collagen and vitamin C is a great anti-aging treatment.

Taking vitamin C orally can increase the effectiveness of sunscreens applied to the skin to protect against the sun's harmful UV rays. This is because it helps the healing process of wounds and it can also help to heal damaged skin and improve dry skin.

5. Vitamin A

Vitamin A plays an important role in building the structure of the skin. The top layer of the skin is formed by horny cells. Vitamin A promotes the formation of these cells and supports the regeneration process of the skin. It has a skin-improving effect and can even help to make the skin smoother. 

Like vitamin E, vitamin A is a fat-soluble compound and one of the most important vitamins for summer health.

In addition to its healthy effect on the skin, it also has a positive impact on the eyes. In fact, vitamin A forms the entire basis of vision.

Even a slight deficiency can already cause vision problems, including difficulty seeing at night and difficulty reading.

Taking vitamin A in the summer months can prevent vision damage from the sun and also help you see more clearly.

Don´t forget to drink enough water

In addition to the traditional sun protection sufficient vitamins, minerals and nutrients, water is also one of the most important components in the summer. In the sun, you can get dehydrated very quickly, which can have a direct negative impact on the external appearance and skin. Drink at least 2 litres of water in summer! If you do sports, drink even more!

Sun protection from the inside

Of course, the absorption of all essential vitamins, nutrients and minerals is possible through food. However, a hectic daily routine or too many fun summer activities can throw a wrench in the works of even the healthiest eater.

Dietary supplements are easy to take and provide you with all the vitamins you need for glowing, healthy skin in no time! Best of all, supplements are super easy to integrate into your daily life. Make taking them part of your healthy daily routine!

Take care of yourself and your skin & enjoy the sun!
