Last 2015, Cavite was declared under red alert for Dengue. As a mom, I have to make sure our family is protected against this deadly disease and have shared with you, my dear readers, some tips on how I tried to dengue-proof our household. You can read the tips here.
When my pre-schooler was still a toddler, I would lather him with insect-repellent lotion but I eventually stopped this as I often forget to apply it to him (mommy brain in action hehe). But then I realized that applying insect-repellent lotion is one of the best way to shoo away the insects especially mosquitos. Because all those suggestions I gave are only effective if you are within the vicinity of a citronella plant or mosquito mat; or you just sprayed the house with insecticide sprays or citronella sprays. But when our kids are at school or in other places, only the mosquito patches work (and this works effectively in the portion of your clothes you attached it to, say the upper body). This is where insect-repellent lotion, like OFF! works perfectly well.
You see, when kids like my little Neo plays outside of the home, they are prone to insect bites, especially mosquitoes. Kids are so pleasant-smelling that insects love to bite them. Neo loves playing in our village playground where the area is full of grass and some tress, some of which are inhabited by insects. OFF! Insect Repellent lotion helps moms like me, feel at ease when we allow our children to play outside particularly playing in a grassy environment. It helps shoo away the insects causing diseases and itchiness that leads to scars. Shooing insects away is a way of shooing illness away.
Us, moms can’t be with our little kids 24/7. It’s nice to know products such as OFF! Insect Repellent Lotion can be our ally in keeping our kids healthy and happy while playing.
