Mimsy Try looking for SKin So Soft.

JacquelineHaden I've checked the Avon sight and nowhere can I find " Ever so soft" could it be another name? I like Avon but don't know the best products they have.

Mimsy Duluth Trading dot com has wonderful practical, sun protecting clothing for women. Reasonably priced SPF 30 to 50 shirts and sun hats that actually provide shade as well. (also their rip stop nylon shorts are fantastic. They wear like iron and dry very quickly)

sailingdog Just be aware that the mens shirts provide almost NO UV protection, especially when wet.

If you look at your drugstore they have several products that are no rinse soaps. I discovered this when taking care of a bed ridden relative. But found it helpful on some offshore trips where it was too rough for a proper shower!

CalebD Just noticed this interesting thread.
Ya gotta love old SD getting the first reply to this thread with his pompous (but informative) "read the link in my signature" post.

On topic.
Obviously the regimen you use with your skin and exposure issues has a lot to do with your skin type.
I am a fair skinned male (northern European mix) and I find that wearing some protective clothing, a hat, using sunblock AND having a Bimini over the cockpit for sun protection are all good things.
They sell SPF rated tops and bottoms called Sun Grubbies which claim to block a lot of rays without all the 'greasing up' you might otherwise do each day. They are body fitting and you can swim while wearing them over a bathing suit.
I happen to like the WinterSilk silk long leg/sleeved under garments for use on a boat. In warm weather the top can be worn as a light sun blocking garment. The silk is a great fabric for wicking away moisture from your skin so you don't feel so clammy, even in warm weather. In cold weather they are warm, thin and comfortable underneath as many other layers as you need for cooler weather.
Showering on a boat will be different then showering on land. Keeping your skin clean and washed requires a shower nearly every day and makes you feel better. Since sailboats have limited storage tanks for water showering must be done in a limited fashion: wet yourself with water and turn off the shower, apply soap and/or shampoo and lather, turn shower back on and rinse while feeling better and more human.

Good luck on your cruise and tell us more about it.

alwheeler98 I primarily use sunscreen for babies (I've used both Copppertone and store brand). It's a high SPF, and is made for delicate skin.

I burn and am not great about remembering to add sunscreen throughout the day.

And I wear a hat.

singer Thanks for all the messages. Am taking it all on board. Think the total sunblock will work perfectly for me. Have very fair skin and burn very easily and a tan seems to take forever

Lostmt I would recommend Total Block SPF 60 or 65. Walgreen sells it or you can find it online. With any type of skin problems you need the maximum protection you can find.

If I remember right the 60 has a color tint to look like makeup. Being a male I don't need the makeup. I do need the maximum protection as I have Lupus and don't have plans on stop sailing anytime in the future.

eryka Hi Singer - I'm a big fan of Shaklee skin care, they have an SPF 15 moisturizer for daytime wear thats pricey but nice. I've never looked for tinted - I think I've got the genetic advantage here - my skin tans easily and isn't too fussy about products. If I'm going to be out all day I use any waterproof SPF 8-15 (don't laugh, I'm currently using a tube of "sport" from Target, then a good wash (soap & water, or Shaklee cleanser) at night and light moisturizer.
