Given: $\overrightarrow a\times\overrightarrow b+\overrightarrow b\times\overrightarrow c+\overrightarrow c\times\overrightarrow a$ and $\overrightarrow a+\overrightarrow b+\overrightarrow c$ are $\perp$.
$\Rightarrow\:(\overrightarrow a\times\overrightarrow b+\overrightarrow b\times\overrightarrow c+\overrightarrow c\times\overrightarrow a).(\overrightarrow a+\overrightarrow b+\overrightarrow c)=0$
$\Rightarrow\:3[\overrightarrow a\:\overrightarrow b\:\overrightarrow c]=0$
$\Rightarrow\:\overrightarrow a,\:\overrightarrow b\:\overrightarrow c$ are coplanar.
