Donna’s favorite sunscreen (even when the sun doesn’t shine in Dayton) is Keys Solar Rx. It is not only an effective SPF, but a great moisturizer as well. She loves it!

Joanna beats the angry sting of a bad sunburn with Veriditas Botanicals Lavender Oil. When applied directly, lavender reduces redness and relieves the pain almost instantly. For more sensitive skin, dilute a few drops in a spray bottle with water or try Veriditas Lavender Hydrosol spray.

Kathy absolutely loves her ICU Sunglasses! She describes them as affordable, comfortable, fashionable, and recyclable. Whether she chooses her big “fun and fabulous” pair or her smaller “simple and serious” ones, she knows her eyes are going to be 100% protected from the sun’s harmful UVA/UVB rays. She also loves them because ICU is certified “carbon neutral” and uses recyclable and sustainable materials.

Joy keeps her bottle of Amrita Bugs BeGone handy when relaxing on the deck. This effective deet-free insect repellent contains the essential oil citriodora (oil of lemon eucalyptus), which is registered and approved by the Environmental Protection Agency.

Kevin lathers up with The Soap Works Carbolic Soap before going hiking and kayaking to keep the bugs away. There are many anecdotal stories from consumers about how effective it is in preventing mosquito bites. It is a naturally scented, antibacterial, and mildly antiseptic soap.
