If you’re a parent, you feel it in their restlessness at bedtime, their dreamy state after school when they come home sweaty, tired, and dirty from an amazing day. If you’re a teacher, you feel it in the classroom – little kids with wiggles all over, daydreaming about vacation, and yes, that sweaty, dirty, rosy cheeked smile after recess. Summer is nearly upon us, and I know many of us are looking forward to the best summer ever in 2017.
We plan to do some traveling, of course, but also I hope to spend a ridiculous amount of time outside in our backyard. We have a large deck, a huge trampoline, and an even more huge love of hosting parties with friends.
While recent weather phenomenon in central and eastern Canada has already made us aware of the need to have an emergency preparedness kit at hand, have you given any thought to what you’ll need to have on hand for all your summer adventures? Parents know that having essential items handy when traveling or simply hosting friends in the back yard is a win! Think of items like sunscreen, bug spray, and extra jackets for your friends and family when they visit.
This summer I’ve partnered with Gold Bond to help remind Canadian parents about treatment after the day of summer fun. When you or your kids encounter pain and itching associated with insect bites, minor skin irritations, scrapes, minor burns, minor cuts, sunburns and dry skin (that’s a long list!) Gold Bond Medicated Anti-Itch Cream can make all the difference between an evening of whining and tears and a comfortable, sleeping child (and husband, as the case may be!)
For all-over itching, Gold Bond Anti-Itch Lotion provides temporary relief from pain and itching associated with all the ailments listed above too, but gives you wider coverage. Also good to know, Gold Bond Medicated Anti-Itch Cream and Anti-Itch Lotion is dermatologist tested, steroid-free and fragrance-free!
Known as the quick fix for almost every itch, Gold Bond Medicated Anti-Itch Cream (MSRP $6.50) and Lotion (MSRP $9.99) both offer fast, temporary anti-itch and pain relief, allowing you and the family to continue all the summer fun! Look for Gold Bond products at mass and drug retailers nationwide!
