"Smooth Sailing: Essential Tips for Prepping Your Skin for a Day ( or Weekend) on the Boat"

I love summer. Nearly my entire life, I have lived within a five-minute drive of our massive Lake Huron. A trip to the lake for me and my family is much shorter than for those who travel a greater distance to spend the day at the lake.
My family and I love taking a walk along the river walk that runs through downtown Port Huron. We enjoy watching the boats on the Black River as they make their way to and from the lake.

You can tell who is prepared for their day on the lake and who isn't. Those who are prepared will wear sunglasses, a brimmed hat, and a lightweight shirt or shaw to get protection from the sun.

Those who are not prepared will be stripped down to their swimsuits, with their tanning oil glistening in the sun. Those are the ones who, four hours later, make their way back up the river with skin as red as a boiled lobster; I always wince to think about how much pain they will end up in later if they aren't already feeling it.

When planning to spend the day at the beach or on a boat, you should pack for the day and be sure to prepare your skin for exposure to the sun, wind, sand, and water.

1. Minimalize your makeup usage. Go as bare as you dare. Let's face it; you will be sweating through your makeup anyway. Why slather on foundation and layers of makeup to sweat it off?

2. Be sure to moisturize thoroughly. Getting a great base coat of your favorite moisturizer (like our Tea Tree Face Cream) helps ready your skin for sunscreen. 

3. Coat yourself with sunscreen. After moisturizing, apply sunscreen to shield your skin from those harmful UV rays. Then reapply your sunscreen once you get to the beach or as soon as you get comfortable on the boat. Continue to reapply your sunscreen throughout the day. 

4. Hydrate. Drink water before you leave for the day. Your skin will thank you, especially if you plan to have a few drinks. 

 5. Rinse offCitrus Splash Beach Bar after swiming. You want to rinse off whenever you dip in a pool or a body of water. You never truly know what you are swimming in, and you want to avoid leaving chemicals, salt, or unhealthy organic material on your skin or hair. 

Try our Beach Bars. Our Citrus Splash Shampoo Bar will clean your body, as well as clean and detangle your hair. Our Citrus Splash Conditioner Bar will keep your hair and skin hydrated and moisturized. 

Bay Rum 3 in 1 shampoo body wash and conditioner

For those planning overnight trips on the boat, we have our shampoo and conditioner bars that are perfect for small spaces. Our Bay Rum Scented 3 in 1 bar is a shampoo, body wash, and conditioner all in one small bar.

Pair these shampoo and conditioner bars with our travel tins for easy storage, and toss them in your beach or overnight bag. 

You will get between 50 and 70 uses, so you are saving not space (which is valuable on a boat) but money too! 

 Keep enjoying your summer!

How to Moisturize Various Skin Types

Our skin is something that we have to live in regardless of how it feels. There are times when it feels dry and other times when it feels oily, and it can even feel porous at times. This can be confusing when trying to buy the best moisturizer for combination skin. When walking into a local drugstore or pharmacy, it can be overwhelming when you are trying to look for the right product. Your skin changes over the years: teenage years often bring acne breakouts and oily skins, and sun tanning season can dry out our skin and leave it flakey and hard.

Providing hope for your skin with a good skin care routine

As you get older, your skin has a bit of everything, including wrinkles, and you wake up not knowing what your skin will look like that day. However, there is hope, and when you want to buy the best moisturizer for combination skin, there are a few basic things to consider. One of the first things to consider is the base of your routine: are you wanting to use a cream or a lotion? A cream is a good middle of the road base to use. A lotion can be highly effective, but you may want to ensure that it does not block your pores so you can prevent acne and dry skin.best moisturizer for combination skin

Don’t hide your skin—help it!

When you wake up and your skin feels dry and peeling, it can make you feel like hiding, or at least like wearing extra clothes so no one can see your skin. There are many reasons for dry skin, including everything from age to not using the best moisturizer cream for your combination skin over the years. Dry skin needs more than just the water you use to wash your hands; your skin needs to trap the hydration in. This will plump out the skin and help with the rejuvenation process.

The skin around your eyes needs special care

I felt old the other day when my kids were bugging me about having raccoon eyes. I looked in the mirror and was horrified with what I saw. There, looking back at me, was an old face with dry skin, sunken eyes, and dark rings. My kids were right: I had raccoon eyes. I needed to buy the best moisturizer for combination skin that would help with the skin around my eyes. Vitamin C infused moisturizing products are essential for helping with the sunken circles and the age spots. Vitamin C has been proven to help with anti-wrinkling and with undoing the damage that has already been done to your skin from the sun.

Buying the best moisturizer cream for combination skin does not have to be confusing. Once you find the right product and the right routine, you can have your skin giving off a healthy glow and looking younger.
