How to guard against insect bites

(NC) – The beautiful summer weather is an open invitation for families to explore the great outdoors on adventures like camping, hiking, biking, picnicking, canoeing, fishing or even horseback riding. Unfortunately, it’s also an open invitation for pesky mosquitoes and deer ticks to leave their irritating mark on these fun-filled family outdoor activities in the form of painful, stinging bites.

There’s ample reason to take every possible measure to avoid these bites even without taking into account their terrible, stinging itchiness.

Fortunately, it’s never been easier to enjoy an outdoor family adventure and still have dependable protection from mosquitoes and deer ticks. Avon, the creators of the iconic Skin So Soft product line, also offers Skin So Soft Bug Guard Plus Icaridin Insect Repellent Spray II. Convenient and easy to apply, it’s available in a pump or aerosol format.

Skin So Soft Bug Guard Plus Icaridin Insect Repellent Spray II provides strong and dependable repellency against mosquitoes for up to five hours and deer ticks for up to seven hours. Avon’s repellent spray uses Icaridin as its repelling agent, which is an effective alternative ingredient to DEET.

Some consumers don’t like DEET repellents because they have a greasy feel and an odour, while, Avon’s insect repellent has a pleasant scent, is non-greasy, has a light feel when applied and also contains soothing ingredients like vitamin E and aloe.

Icaridin has been used worldwide since 1998, and is one of the best selling active ingredients contained in insect repellent products in Europe. The Skin So Soft Bug Guard Plus Icaridin Insect Repellent Spray II is ideal protection when you want to enjoy outdoor activities like walks, evening barbeques, sunset gazes and campfires without the nuisance and concern of mosquitoes and deer ticks.
