Bye Bye Nasty Bugs
After numerous attempts to keep the bugs away while on holiday I finally found the one product that really does repel those darn bugs. They absolutely love my blood and every summer I end up with big red bites all over my body the minute I step off the airplane. Recommended by my local McSharry’s Pharmacy there is no way I will ever leave home without Jungle Formula, it’s on my top list of holiday must haves. Jungle Formula Medium provides up to 6 hour protection from mosquitoes, midges and biting insects (insect repellent factor 3). I religiously use this in the morning and evening while on holidays and its made my holiday so much more pleasant.
Protecting The Family
There is nothing more important than a good sun lotion, especially with 3 kids, holidaying in a sunny climate in the middle of July. With temperatures reaching 35 degrees it is vital to have the whole family protected from these harmful rays. La Roche-Posay factor 50+ is my go to sun lotion. It is suitable for very sensitive skin, paraben-free and very water-resistant. I have tried so many other sun creams over the years but this works all the time and gives me piece of mind especially with my fair skin, red-head children. It’s also so easy to apply and a little goes a long way.
When The Sun Goes Down
It can be so easy forgotten, but it’s just as important to take care of your skin after a day in the sun. At this stage applying after-sun lotion to the face and body is part of the course in our family. If the skin has been exposed to the sun all day or feels dried out then apply La Roche-Posay Soothing Gel. It’s perfect for both the face and body. I also find that by using an after-sun cream it prolongs your tan which is always a plus in my book.
