Somebody forgot to light the citronella candle? The first rule when it comes to itchy, burning mosquito bites is don’t scratch. Second, soothe irritation with something cold, like a bag of ice. Even better, roll on Sampar’s Prodigal Pen, which calms and heals bites with a blend of eight essential oils. Next time, beat the bugs with a preemptive layer of Maya Solar Bio Degradable Insect Repellent.
Sunburn, Baby, Sunburn
Even the most vigilant sunscreen appliers miss a spot sometimes. Treat torched skin with an after-sun ointment like COOLA Environmental Repair Plus® Radical Recovery™ After-Sun Lotion, which alleviates pain with healing agave. Once your burn starts to peel, gently remove dead skin with Whish’s Exfoliating Body Wash. Follow with a ultra-hydrating moisturizer containing aloe like Caldrea’s Body Lotion.
Whether you’re traipsing around town in flip flops or going sockless in your sneaks, chances are you’re going to have a run in with less-than-fresh smelling feet. Since hitting the shower for a proper scrub isn’t always in your schedule, clean them up quickly with Jasmine Seven’s portable Feet Wipes, infused with aloe and refreshing peppermint.
During the sweltering months, we carry (MALIN+GOETZ)’s eucalyptus deodorant in our bag at all times. But what to do about the ever-awkward “boob sweat”?

If a sweaty back or knees are your issue, borrow from the boys with a dusting of this all-over body powder.
Even though we’re well versed in shaving, pesky red bumps and ingrown hairs happen. To prevent nicks and razor burn, apply a protective ointment like MiN New York Solution2 Post Shave Treatment Rollerball pre or post-shave. And keep legs stubble-free longer with Whish’s Inhibiting Gel.
