Vier Personen rennen ins Meer

The warm rays of sunshine invite us to spend time outdoors and enjoy nature. But for some people, sun exposure can have unpleasant consequences, such as sun allergies. If you are one of those who suffer from sun allergies, there are some vitamins and minerals that can help soothe your skin and prepare it for the upcoming sun exposure. In this article, we would like to explain which nutrients can help you with this.

Vitamin A/beta-carotene
Vitamin A plays an important role in the function of cell specialization. It also contributes to the maintenance of normal skin. Foods such as carrots, sweet potatoes, spinach and pumpkin contain natural vitamin A or its precursor, beta-carotene.

Vitamin D
Although vitamin D is often associated with sun exposure, it can also help your skin when sunbathing. A lack of vitamin D can affect the immune system and lead to an excessive reaction of the skin to sunlight. By maintaining adequate vitamin D levels, vitamin D contributes to normal immune system function and normal cell division. However, it is important that you have your vitamin D levels checked regularly and take supplements if necessary.

Vitamin E
Vitamin E is an effective antioxidant that helps to protect cells from oxidative stress. UV radiation can also cause oxidative stress. It also helps to moisturize the skin. Good sources of vitamin E are nuts, seeds, vegetable oils and avocados.

Vitamin C
Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant that contributes to normal collagen production for normal skin function. Collagen is an important protein for your skin. It also helps with sun-related effects on your skin and reduces the risk of premature ageing of your skin. Foods such as citrus fruits, berries, peppers and green leafy vegetables are rich in vitamin C.

Zinc is a mineral that is essential for the skin. Zinc thus helps to protect the cells from oxidative stress. Zinc also has a function in cell division and helps to maintain normal skin. Zinc-rich foods include seafood, lean meat, pulses and nuts.

Selenium is another important trace element that acts as a powerful antioxidant, helping to protect the skin from oxidative stress. Brazil nuts, fish, meat and wholemeal products are good sources of selenium.

Omega-3 fatty acids
Omega-3 fatty acids, which are mainly found in krill oil and fatty fish or linseed oil, have a variety of properties. They can help to ensure that your skin is ready for sunbathing.

In addition to a balanced diet, you can also consider taking high-quality supplements to ensure that you get sufficient amounts of important vitamins and minerals.
