Tip 1: Hydrate yourself for glowy skin
Water is essential for healthy skin, which is why we emphasize the importance of adequate water intake.
We prefer filtered water and herbal teas. This not only helps with hydration, but also supports the natural detoxification process of the liver (our bodily filter).
By paying close attention or avoiding alcohol, drugs, pesticides and medication, you can reduce the load on the liver and thus prevent the accumulation of waste products in the lymphatic veins
By paying close attention or avoiding alcohol, drugs, pesticides and medication, you can reduce the load on the liver and thus prevent the accumulation of waste products in the lymphatic vessels.
In addition, we recommend the use of a mineral drink called ‘Sole’, which consists of a mixture of Celtic salt and water.
How do you make it?
- Fill a glass (jam) jar for 1/3rd with Celtic salt and 2/3rd with water.
- Shake the mixture well, if a thin salt layer appears on the bottom this will
say that the water is saturated with salt.
- You can use the sole by adding 1 to 2 teaspoons of the saline solution daily to a
add glass of water for a good mineral balance.
- Also works well against headaches and fatigue and has a detoxifying effect.
Extra: Alternate your water with coconut water, herbal tea or water with mint/lime, ginger and/or cucumber for good hydration!
Extra tip: use filtered water so that all chemicals are filtered out of your water. Store in a dark place. Now on to the nutrition tips for the summer.
Tip 2: Protect your skin from the inside
Nutrition can play a powerful role in protecting your skin from the sun’s harmful rays. Fruits such as strawberries, kiwis and blackberries are packed with vitamin C and other plant-based nutrients that are important as natural sun protection. By regularly eating these fruits, you reduce the risk of sunburn and keep your skin healthy.
Tip 3: Eat foods rich in antioxidants
Antioxidants are essential for protecting your skin from free radical damage caused by sun exposure.
Foods such as: watermelon, green smoothies, mangoes, peppers and fresh salads are rich in antioxidants and can help you reduce sun damage. In addition, avoid rancid fats, such as sunflower oil and margarine, and choose healthy fats such as ghee, coconut oil, avocado and raw nuts instead.

Tip 4: Light meals
During the summer months it is important to take your digestion into account. The warm weather can slow down your digestion.
Therefore, choose lighter meals that are easy to digest. Think of fresh salads with seasonal vegetables, grilled fish or lean poultry, and whole grains such as quinoa or buckwheat. These foods contain important nutrients and fiber that give you energy and support your digestive system.
One of our favorite summer recipes: Green power zucchini noodles.
Tip 5: Eat along the seasons
It is essential to listen to your body and enjoy the abundant supply of fresh, seasonal foods.
Summer offers an array of delicious fruits and vegetables that are not only nutritious, but can also nourish and protect your skin. Think juicy watermelons, sweet berries, crunchy cucumbers and refreshing mint. Take advantage of these healthy and natural options to supplement your diet and keep your skin radiant throughout the summer months.
Extra tip: Protect your skin against UVA/UVB radiation
The last tip does not fall under nutrition tips for the summer, but should not be missed.
Because protecting your skin from the inside out during the summer is very important. As you have read, antioxidants play an important role there. Especially when protecting against harmful influences such as UV radiation and pollution.
