High maintenance beauty routines are not in the forefront aboard ship.
I relax and use less make up
and have given up blow drying my hair.
With a little help from Bumble and Bumble my holiday hair looks just fine.
Skin and sunshine are not the best of friends...over exposure is not advisable.
I recently learned that a very dear friend has had surgery to remove a malignant melanoma.
It's scary stuff and a wake up call for all of us.
She is doing fine but now limits her time in the sun wears a hat and uses sunscreen everyday.
My skincare routine on board is the same as at home.
I use travel sizes of the Avene products and bring the Olay battery powered facial brush.
Everything is conveniently stored in my roll up cosmetic bag and hangs in the head for easy access.
Eminence Mineral Sunscreen
a bit of lipgloss
and I am ready.
Eating fresh fruit and vegetables gives me a sense of health
that balance out the "naughty salty snacks" that I have been eating.
My current read
is set in Australia
I've just started this novel
and feel transported to another place and another time...
I'll check in with you periodically as we move from marina to marina in the sunny Gulf Islands of BC.
