Protecting your skin from the sun’s harmful UV rays is crucial, especially when spending long hours outdoors on a cruise. Pack a broad-spectrum sunscreen with an SPF of 30 or higher and reapply throughout the day, particularly after swimming or sweating.

Lip Balm with SPF

Remember to protect your lips from sunburn as well. A lip balm with SPF will help keep your lips hydrated while shielding them from the sun’s damaging rays.

Keep your skin hydrated and nourished with a lightweight, oil-free moisturizer that won’t clog your pores. Opt for a moisturizer with ingredients like hyaluronic acid or aloe vera to help soothe and replenish your skin after a day in the sun.

Incorporating these skincare products into your cruise packing list ensures your skin stays healthy, hydrated, and protected throughout your vacation. Remember to tailor your skincare routine to your skin type and needs to enjoy a glowing complexion both onboard and onshore.
