Tip 1: Natural sun protection from within
It is important to protect your skin not only from the outside, but also from the inside. We are mainly talking about protection against pigmentation, UVA / UVB radiation and pollution.
Especially now that we spend a lot more time outside in the summer. Antioxidants play a crucial role in this.
They provide protection against free radicals and harmful external influences, such as too much exposure to the sun’s rays and environmental factors.
Research has shown that UV radiation and air pollution produce free radicals on and in the skin.1
Free radicals “steal” electrons from healthy cells and turn them into free radicals as well. Antioxidants neutralize these free radicals and thus prevent damage to healthy cells.
A powerful Astaxanthin that can protect your skin from the inside against UV radiation, among other things, is our #08 Astaxanthin. It is therefore a valuable addition to your summer skincare.

Tip 2: be wise
Sunlight is an important part of a healthy life, but it’s important to also protect yourself from the power of the sun.
It is important to use the sun wisely and to protect yourself from overexposure to harmful UV rays. It is advisable not to bake unprotected for hours, between 11am and 4pm.
When you do go into the sun, it is important to regularly apply a layer of natural sun protection to the skin.
Tip 3: Choose natural sun protection for your skin
Just as we pay attention to the purity of our supplements,, it is also important to be aware of what we put on our skin.
Our skin is like a big sponge and absorbs everything we put on it. That is why it is important to choose natural, mineral sun care products. Did you know that your skin absorbs what you put on it within 20 seconds?
Highly recommended is the Colored Sunscreen Face SPF 30 from Dr. Hauschka.
This cream not only protects against sun power, but also provides a fresh complexion without white haze.
In addition, the After Sun Lotion from Dr. Hauschka an excellent choice to cool, refresh and nourish your skin after a hot summer day. This lotion also activates the restorative capacity of your skin.

Tip 4: Hydrate from within
In addition to applying the right products to your skin, hydration from the inside is very important. Especially during hot days, when you lose a lot of fluid through perspiration, it is essential to drink enough.
Water and green tea are excellent choices. You can also enrich your water by adding Himalayan salt (also called a sole – mega good to replenish your minerals), lemon, ginger, mint leaves and cucumber.
In addition, nutrition plays an important role in hydration. Eating foods with a high water content can help prevent dehydrated skin. Think: watermelon, cucumber, radishes, carrots, grapefruit, strawberries and pineapple hydrating fruits. Preferably choose unsprayed variants for optimal health benefits.
But green leafy vegetables such as lettuce and spinach, peppers, broccoli, turnip greens and eggs are also good choices because of the lutein content. Lutein in food provides protection against UV radiation.
Tip 5: Let the sun work for you
Although sunburn is not good for your skin, it is important to go into the sun unprotected every day, preferably early in the morning to catch the first rays of the sun. This ensures a good vitamin D level and this is how your skin builds up natural sun protection.
In addition to vitamin D production, sunlight also has other benefits. It regulates our bodily functions and sleep patterns, and gives us a cheerful and energetic feeling.
However, don’t forget to regularly apply a layer of sun protection during the day to protect your skin.
Conclusion: Natural sun protection for your skin
A radiant and hydrated summer skin requires the right care and protection. In addition to using natural sun protection for your skin, it is essential to also protect your skin from the inside out with the help of antioxidants such as Astaxanthin.
Don’t forget to use the sun wisely, avoiding the sun’s power during the hottest part of the day and regularly applying a new layer of sun protection. Choose natural care products that care for and protect your skin without harmful ingredients.
Hydrate yourself from the inside by drinking enough water and consuming foods with a high water content.
