5 tips for top summer skin care

The Maltese sun isn’t kind, so you’re going to have to make the effort.

We spend much more time outside in summer than we do in winter. The Maltese sun isn’t kind to anyone, which makes skincare an absolute must, especially when combining the heat to the pollution and dust in the air. Here are a few tips to keep your skin healthy and radiant.


We sweat a lot in summer, meaning we lose a lot of water. The sun also depletes moisture levels in our skin, so proper hydration is essential. Make sure to drink enough water during the day and use skin products with hyaluronic acid and aloe vera to keep your skin’s moisture levels in check.


Protect your skin from wrinkles, pigmentation, and horrible skin diseases by applying sunblock regularly throughout the day. I would recommend an SPF30 or higher, especially for your face. If you wear make up, purchase a special sunblock to apply beneath your foundation for a sleek look.

Face Mist

Face mists are a great way of keeping your skin hydrated while you’re on the go. Look for those with natural ingredients such as rosewater, cucumber, and chamomile as these ingredients help your skin feel fresh while looking radiant all at the same time.

Eat Skin-Friendly Foods

The food you eat can have a major effect on your skin. Include foods like berries, nuts, and leafy greens in your diet to increase your antioxidant intake. It’s also recommended to intake omega-3 fatty acids to aid skin hydration. You’ll find these in foods like fatty fish and flaxseed oil.

Exfoliate Regularly

Allow your skin to breathe by using a gentle exfoliator once or twice a week. This will remove all the dead cells and open up your pores, which allows your skin to regenerate. Make sure to choose products with gentle ingredients that match your skin’s needs.
