Seafarers will be used to the no-fuss life, however some of you will be new to sailing holidays.

Glam crew members – fear not! You can experience the freedom of chartering a boat without looking shipwrecked!


By following these tips, you’ll ensure that ‘holiday glow’ features in your holiday posts!


Pack It Up: Streamline your beauty products by opting for travel-sized containers to save space. Leave the heavy creams and styling products at home, its time to embrace’ less is more’!


Pre-Charter Prep: Book a pamper session and get in the holiday mindset early. Treat your toes to a shellac pedicure, they’ll soon be gracing white sandy beaches and turquoise waters. Brow and lash tinting is a game-changer for those with fair hair.


Au Natural: A tinted moisturizer, waterproof mascara, and a hint of lip tint can go a long way in achieving a fresh and effortless look. Combat the effects of wind with a hydrating lip balm, many versions come with SPF50 to keep your lips protected.


Sun Smart: Being the sunny state means our UV Rating is high. Apply your sunscreen first thing and top up every time you swim. Choose reef-friendly options with fewer harmful ingredients to preserve the vibrant marine life.


Mane Attraction: Keep your locks in check by tying them back in loose braids or a chic bun when sailing. Hats and visors will keep your vision free to soaking up the stunning views. Heatless curls are great for those special ‘dress-up’ occasions!


Evening Rituals: Most charterers prefer to shower in the evening after a day of salty activities. This is the perfect time to rehydrate and deep cleanse. Shower products with a nature-based exfoliant will remove sunscreen layers and sand before sleep. A good quality night cream will be your skin’s savior alongside an overnight lip treatment. Wake up moisturized and ready for another day of adventures!
