Product Spotlight: Patching Up for the Outdoors!

For today’s product spotlight, we’re looking at not one, not two, but three ways of patching up problems for kids! As the weather heats up, those little ones are heading back outside. Of course, they won’t be alone... The mosquitos will be there too! And let’s not forget our friend the boiling sun! Here are three safety products that will help with patching up problems all season long.

BuzzPatch Mosquito Repellent Patches: Patching Up To Avoid Pests

Let’s face it, mosquitos are one of the biggest pains of the warmer months. Therefore, we’ll start with the BuzzPatch Mosquito Repellent Patches. BuzzPatch, the first-ever mosquito repellent sticker, is designed for patching up the problem of those pesky little bloodsuckers. They’re great for children (and really anyone) seeking a hassle-free, all-natural solution to combat annoying insects. Each pack contains 24 patches for your convenience.

To use them, simply stick one of these fun, colorful patches onto clothes or near exposed skin. The product’s all-natural citronella oil helps to keep bugs at bay for 12 hours. Check them out in our store.

Knowing More About the Mosquito is Half the Battle!

Mosquitoes are not only annoying, but they can also transmit diseases such as West Nile virus, Zika virus, and Dengue fever. 

Beyond the BuzzPatch, here are some other ways to protect your children from mosquito bites:

  • Encourage them to wear long-sleeved shirts and long pants when playing outdoors. This is especially important during dawn and dusk. This is usually when mosquitoes are most active.
  • Eliminate standing water around your home where mosquitoes breed. This doesn’t just mean the pool. Don’t forget other places like birdbaths, puddles, flower pots, and clogged gutters.

MagicPatch Itch Relief Patches

Of course, let’s say it’s too late and the bugs have been biting. That’s where the MagicPatch Itch Relief patch comes in! These products also feature an all-natural, non-spray, non-chemical solution. It’s an easy to use relief from itches and bites for you and your family. Each pack of MagicPatch includes 27 stickers. 

When it comes to patching up for itch relief, place one directly on a bug bite. The product’s Grid-Relief Technology micro-lifts the skin. Without using any chemicals, this drains the lymphatic system of the biochemicals that are causing the itch. To learn more, check out MagicPatch’s store link.

SunnyPatch UV-Detecting Patch

Finally, let’s talk about the sun and its potentially skin-damaging UV rays. While essential for Vitamin D production, too much sun can leave painful burns or worse, increased risk of skin cancer. To tackle this issue, take a look at our last product focus: the SunnyPatch UV-Detecting Patch.

SunnyPatch is a pack of 24 innovative UV-detecting stickers. They work using a special UV-sensitive ink. The sticker changes color to purple when it's time to reapply sunscreen! They are also completely waterproof and resistant to sunscreen, so they’re perfect for a day at the beach or pool! 

Additional Sun Safety Tips

Besides the patching up with SunnyPatch, basic sun safety is also key. Here are some extra tips: 

  • Dress younger children in lightweight clothing that covers as much skin as possible. For especially little ones, this can even include a wide-brimmed hat and UV-blocking sunglasses.
  • Apply sunscreen with a SPF of 30 or higher to all exposed skin, even on cloudy days.
  • Seek shade whenever possible, especially during peak sunlight hours.

Education and Patches Work Best Together

In the end, education is always the most powerful safety tool. Teaching children about mosquito and sun safety gives them the power to make informed decisions. This will encourage them to take responsibility for their well-being. Encourage them to remind their friends and siblings about safety measures too. Beyond that patching up with BuzzPatch, MagicPatch and SunnyPatch are a great way to add extra layers of defense!
