Celebrate “Great Outdoors Month”….Safely!

As summer approaches, enjoying America’s beauty is an essential part of relaxing! Whether it’s going hiking or just enjoying the backyard BBQ with friends, the outdoors is truly a part of the American culture!

Before you go outside, what do you need? Sunscreen? Bug Spray? Both! Keeping yourself protected against the sun and insects is essential! Unfortunately, most sunscreens and bug sprays contain harmful chemicals and ingredients that seep into the skin and then into the blood stream. DEET is a prime example of a harmful ingredient. Although it’s approved by the EPA, it is NOT safe! Long term exposure can cause memory loss, migraines, fatigue, muscle & joint pain, and shortness of breathe.  Having a bug repellant that is safe for the human body is very important since we use it frequently when outdoors.

Although sun burns can be a burden, they are actually more dangerous than people realize. Besides skin damage and skin aging, skin cancer like Melanoma is becoming an epidemic in the United States. Using a high SPF is very important- you will still become tan- but will have extra protection! For example, If it takes 20 minutes for your unprotected skin to start turning red, using an SPF 15 sunscreen theoretically prevents reddening 15 times longer — about five hours.

So what’s the point of all of this? Keep yourself safe whether it’s from the sun or from insects! We have waited all winter for warm weather, now let’s be able to enjoy it! Gifts of Nature has Bug Off Spray, Bug Bite Roll On, Bronzing Moisturizer, Allergy Relief Spray, and Decongesting Chest Salve! All Natural & Effective!
