Skin care

Caring for skin at sea is often an afterthought but taking care is essential

Being out at sea can mean a lot of exposure to the sun's ultraviolet light and damage to your skin. Not only that, but day-to-day work means you can come into contact with chemicals frequently and need to protect yourself from potential effects of their contact with your skin.

Our resources include three posters to promote skin care on board.
