Beauty and the Boat

This quad stands up to the heat (from MJ Sailing)
Mirror, mirror on the wall, who is the fairest sailor of them all?

Whether you are living exclusively on the hook or are a slave to the marina facilities, it is likely that living aboard has had some sort of impact on your beauty routine. Before I moved aboard I would don a full face of makeup every day as I headed to the office. You can say that things changed once I moved aboard. Granted, I was no longer working, but a formal face just seemed unnecessary once I was out exploring tropical waters each day.

Just because one chooses a life aboard doesn't mean they have to give up beauty entirely. These lovely sailing ladies share what works for them, what stands up to the heat and how they keep a little bit of girliness in their lives after moving aboard.
