Don’t Scratch Off Your Summer Adventures

Summer and adventures go together like ice cream goes with cake. We are already planning our summer bucket list and all the fun things we can do together as a family. One of our top items is camping. We recently purchased a “new” camper and plan to take it as soon as school is over for a few days at a local campsite. Other items on our summer bucket list include boating on the Ottawa River with our cousins, trips to the beach, family bike rides and maybe even a few horseback rides! There is nothing holding us back from our summer adventures.

Well, almost nothing. With so much fun waiting to be experienced, we want to make sure we are comfortable. The dreaded “summer itch” is pretty much a given. I’m talking about bug bites, sunburns, allergies and whatever other skin issues that may arise for whatever reason. The good thing is that I have products in my arsenal to help. Gold Bond has been around since 1908 and for a good reason: it really works to relieve that pesky summer itch. I know everyone says don’t forget the sunscreen, but I’m also telling you to also pick up some Gold Bond Anti-Itch Lotion or Gold Bond Medicated Anti-Itch Cream. If summers past are any indicator, you’re going to need it to stay comfortable!

I have super sensitive skin that seems to flare up more in the summer. When I get a bug bite, I cannot stop itching it. I need help. Thankfully, I have Gold Bond to relieve this annoying itch so I can concentrate on having fun with my family and not on how terrible my skin feels. The stuff really works!

Try Gold Bond Medicated Anti-Itch Cream for temporary relief from pain and itching from bug bites, minor skin irritations like scrapes, cuts and burns, sunburn and dry skin. It contains a unique blend of aloe and Vitamin E to soothe skin and medicinal anti-itch ingredients (Menthol 1% and Pramoxine Hydrochloride 1%) to calm that annoying itching sensation.

Another great one to pick up is Gold Bond Anti-Itch Lotion to soothe all over itchy skin. It’s made with a blend of aloe, Vitamin E and Vitamin B5 to provide much-needed moisture to your dry summer skin. To tackle the itching and protect your skin, it has Dimethicone 5%, Menthol 0.5% and Pramoxine Hydrochloride 1%).

Both products are must-haves for your first aid kits and medicine cabinets! We are all “itching” for adventure, but don’t want the itching to happen in the literal sense! Feeling awful because of dry, itchy skin can easily ruin someone’s day. No one wants to feel horrible when so much fun is waiting for them. Being comfortable in your skin is important and I’m glad that Gold Bond is there to save the day.

When we go away this summer on our camping trips, we’ll be packing all the essentials like swimsuits and bug spray, but also Gold Bond to slay the pesky summer itch.
