Poly coating with "skin" on top

I have a can of Min-Wax Poly Coating that I used last year for my hardwood floors. I just opened it to use in a different room and it has a coat of "skin" on the top. Other than that is looks ok. Is it still good to use for my floors?? Appreciate the help.

Poly coating with "skin" on top

It should be fine. Oil based products often skin after they get enough air space in the can and are left unused for a while.
