Cowboys & Avon — Get the Horses without Worrying about the Bugs
For all those people who go outside, we have some tips below on how to protect yourself from mosquitoes.
Lots of people are upset about the Zika Virus and Avon’s Bug Guard will help protect you and your family from mosquitoes that carry the Zika Virus. As of 5/2/17 in Alabama, we have had 55 cases of Zika (travel related) found. No Zika mosquitoes yet, though. BugGuard also protects you from other diseases that mosquitoes carry in Alabama like malaria and West Nile Virus. Ticks, no see ems, and biting flies are no more with the use of Avon’s Bug Guard.
What is really neat, though, is the fact that the Green bottles and the lotion also contain sun screen. Two items within one product.
While cowgirls think about their skin and take care of it, most cowboys don’t. They just get more grizzled looking as they get older.
As a woman who wants to keep her man with her as long as possible, it just irritates me that men don’t care about their skin. Skin cancer is one of the most preventable of all of the cancers. Yet, if a cancer does develop and it is the aggressive melanoma type — it can spread to other parts of the body and kill before you even get a chance to address the initial skin cancer issue.
One thing I found that got my guy first interested in taking care of his skin, was
when I finally talked him into trying Avon’s Bug Guard.
Bill found that it worked and stopped the mosquitoes from biting him last summer. The lotion doesn’t smell weird and girly. Bajing! He loves the way his skin feels and looks. Now we are talking about a cowboy and a former truck driver – can’t get more macho than that.
Right now because of the season, Avon Bug Guard is back on the shelves. AND it is currently on sale for $4.99 and up.
Zika Virus — Important for Everyone Who is Outside
Right now everyone is talking about the Zika virus. The CDC has two PDFs that are helpful to look to for information about protecting your family. In one of these PDFs they even specifically list Avon’s products as one of the products you can buy for insect protection.
The first PDF talks about traveling in areas with the Zika virus but has good information about being outside. The second PDF lists Avon products and generally talks about protecting oneself from mosquitoes in general.
The CDC’s #1 recommendation to protect yourself from the Zika virus? Don’t get bit by a mosquito.
HOW do you do that? Well, first is to use a mosquito repellent. Second, is to wear long sleeve shirts and long pants when you are outside. Third, treat your clothing and shoes with Permethrin (do NOT put this on your skin and check out the instructions as I don’t know if that includes children’s clothing). And fourth, mosquito proof your home — air-conditioning, screens on the window without holes.
