So this past week, I have had a countless amount of bug bites from filming in the great outdoors and it eventually led for me to write this post. The struggle is so real when you can count the massive red bites all of you and sometimes, can’t even decipher if it’s a bug bite or pimple. Moral of the story: I am here to help you with that! This is all a part of summer, so if you feel like bugs see you too as an All-You-Can-Eat Buffet, then this post is for you!
Prevent them from happening!
I don’t mean stay inside all day (although that always does the trick too!), but I do mean by carrying around bug spray. Especially if you end up in wooded areas, it’s always a decent idea to keep bug repellent spray and suntan lotion around.
But, you already got bit…
It happens! My go-to techniques for bug bites include,
- Aloe Ice Cubes (a cool way to save the day!)
- Hand Sanitizer (takes away the itch!)
- Warmed Metal Spoon (again, takes away the itch!)
Girls: got one on your face?
I assure you that it’s not the end of the world! Just don’t treat it like a pimple if it’s not! Oh, and there’s concealer to save the day and lesson the load. 🙂
I hope that this helps you out this summer!
