We love it – the sun! The winter clothes wander back to the farthest corners of our wardrobe and make way for shorts, skirts, colorful shirts and good mood. The outdoor pools fill up, the barbecue season is over! As beautiful as summer may be, sun rays and heat can become a spoiler for your skin and hair as well as your organism. We’ll show you how to get through the hot season beautifully and healthily with the help of antioxidants: antioxidants – the ultimate beauty helpers for your summer!
He’s finally here! SUMMER! But what does he do with your body?
The changeover to daylight saving time and the associated longer and brighter days make us happy! The produced happiness hormone serotonin creates a fabulous mood! But beware: UV rays produce cell-destroying, free radicals in the body. Free radicals are unstable molecules that lack an electron. To compensate for this, they attack our cells and can damage the eyes, hair and skin as well as the connective tissue. The acceleration of skin aging is then only one of the consequences! But they – the noble saviours in need – are antioxidants! Together, with sufficient sun protection, they can counteract the cell-destroying, free radicals.
Antioxidants – the ultimate beauty helpers for your summer!
They are our faithful helpers in need of defense against free radicals, because they can interrupt the chain reaction of free radicals and thus protect the cells from oxidative stress – not for nothing are they also called radical scavengers. Your body can only produce a part of antioxidants yourself. Therefore, they must be supplied in the form of vitamins, minerals, trace elements and phytonutrients.
Your TOP nutrient booster for the hot days!
We have summarized for you which vitamins, minerals, trace elements and phytonutrients protect your skin & hair as well as your organism from sun rays in the best possible way. A special plus for all those for which a sun allergy quickly becomes a summer miesmaker: Antioxidants such as vitamins C, E and selenias as well as vitamin A and vitamin D also prevent sun allergies! With these nutrients you are guaranteed to be a bet-ray with the sun.
VITAMIN A … IS THE booster par excellence for your eyesight! It is also important for your skin, as it increases cell regeneration and skin elasticity. Vitamin A prevents damage in the skin cells and helps your body to regenerate after sunbathing. As an all-rounder, it protects against dryness of hair, nails and eyes – this definitely can’t hurt in summer!
VITAMIN C … is known to be an important antioxidant and to intercept free radicals! But vitamin C can do so much more: it strengthens the connective tissue, improves the absorption of certain nutrients, detoxifies and keeps the blood vessels healthy – in short, it is indispensable for a nice and healthy summer!
VITAMIN E … works together with vitamin C against free radicals! Vitamin E not only protects your cell walls – it delays the aging of your skin! It is a natural sun protection, because it helps to maintain the natural protective barrier of the skin and is thus the anti-aging beauty vitamin of the beauty world!
SELEN … is a trace element that must be fed to the body via food. As an antioxidant, it ensures the youngness of the tissue and elasticity of the subcutaneous tissue, as well as healthy and beautiful hair. In addition, it is essential for your immune system and your good mood – a must-have for the summer!
ZINC … is indispensable for your summer! Zinc can help regenerate the skin after an extensive sunbathing. Zinc deficiency, on the other hand, leads to hair loss, dry skin, limits performance and weakens the immune system. An absolute summer plus: Zinc compensates for sweating!
ALOE VERA … is known for millennia for its beneficial effects and the flagship for health and beauty! You used to think that aloe vera can only be applied to the skin? Wrong! The juice of Aloe Vera contains seven essential amino acids, as well as the vitamins A+B+C+E! Thus the plant is THE all-round talent par excellence: wound healing, skin problems and sunburn – no problem for Aloe Vera! If you drink the Aloe Vera Gel, it can have a positive effect on your TOTAL body – not just on the applied areas of the skin.
RESVERATROL … is considered THE antioxidant par excellence! It should provide a NOCH greater antioxidant protection than vitamins C and E! If you regularly perform resveratrol on your body, nothing should stand in the way of protection against aggressive, free radicals! Resveratrol also has an anti-inflammatory effect and this can be preventative for your body in many ways in summer – your skin and hair will thank you!
Our tip at the end: Use the summer to counteract vitamin D deficiency! 20 minutes of sunlight per day is enough to stimulate vitamin D production! We recommend applying the sun protection only after about 10 minutes in the sun, because a high light protection factor from the beginning can prevent vitamin D formation – but by no means do without it!
