Those of us with seasons experience “amnesia” when it comes to summer. While shovelling the driveway or scraping off the car, we reminisce about the good parts of summer: blue skies, day trips, and sun dresses, dismissing the yucky bits, like sweating in hot cars, sunscreen, and bug bites. Kind of like how moms wistfully recall the beautiful aspects of childbirth, relegating the not-so-pleasant parts to the distant recesses of our brains.
Whether at the cottage, celebrating the 4th of July long weekend, or enjoying a cookout in the backyard, it proves hard enough to remember to apply (and re-apply!) sunscreen and bug spray, let alone remembering for our children! And good luck getting kids to mind your rules while at camp – just the thought of ‘spreading this, then applying that’ can turn them off the idea altogether, putting them at risk of sunburn or bug-transmitted viruses.
Avon’s latest Skin-So-Soft suite of products truly impresses. In one easy step, a single product effectively repels mosquitoes, deer ticks, black flies, and more, while providing sun protection. And because Avon Skin-So-Soft Bug Guard products don’t contain DEET, don’t give off an offensive scent!
My kids loved being able to swim all day, jumping off the dock seemingly invisible to black flies and mosquitoes, while protected from the burning rays of the sun! I loved that these products don’t clog pores, didn’t leave my skin feeling greasy, and moisturized my skin with vitamin E and aloe.
This cool product line also includes a “disappearing color” lotion (so kids will know where they applied it), a spray without SPF for night time use, and an anti-itch spray. Check out the whole line online at avon.com or speak to your local Avon representative.
