Before I post our Malta photos, I have a fun little tip for you that I learned from a Maltese man. Yup, a man:)
Remember this photo? Well, the first day after we arrived I totally misjudged the sun. It’s tricky there because the coolish sea air down-plays the strength of the heat. I forgot to re-apply my sunscreen after a few swims and well, I got a bit burned on my legs and on my shoulders. On the way back to the hotel a local men stopped me and casually said not to use any calming oils, instead just rub in lots of plain baby powder into my wet red skin after a shower. He promised that by the morning it will totally calm down and turn brownish. He continued on saying that his wife swears by it and uses it on herself and their kids all the time. As you probably guessed already, he was right. The next morning my skin looked sun kissed without redness or pain.
Ha, who knew that baby powder can be so nifty:) What are your summer sun tricks? xo
P.S: And this one.
