Spring and Summer: The Go To Kit

First aid kit.

Ah, Spring! And here comes Summer! Gone are the heavy coats and the long pants. It’s time for sunshine and the great outdoors.

Better make sure you have some aloe vera cream in your first aid kit for everything life in the sun can bring.

What Spring and Summer Can Bring

In the warmer months, we wear lighter and fewer clothes, exposing our skin more.

We spend much more time outside and engage in more vigorous activities. Children and adults alike are thus more prone to skin damage.

A few things we can expect at this time of year are:

  • Sunburn
  • Dry skin
  • Insect stings and bites
  • Cuts and scrapes
  • Gardening incidents
  • Rashes and allergic reactions
  • Chafing

Like the Boy Scouts have always said, be prepared.

Aloe Vera: Nature’s Multipurpose Plant

While our activity around nature can cause some minor ailments, nature also provides a balm to soothe them. Corium 21 is a cooling cream loaded with the helpful properties of aloe vera.

Use it on your sunburn and moisturize the damage. Take away the nasty sting or itch caused by mosquitoes, bees, wasps, ants, poison ivy and blackberry thorns.

Let its properties fight off toxic particles that can get into cuts and scrapes you may receive while gardening. Ease the chafing and discomfort of sweat rash. Moisturize those dry lips.

You may have antibiotic agents and creams in your first aid kit but there isn’t one as versatile and as natural as aloe vera.

Bumps and Bruises

As we resume full intensity in our hiking, running, cycling, boating and sports, we inevitably experience some falls, bumps, bruises, even sprains.

The bruises and scabs that form are unsightly, painful and can seem to take forever to disappear. Speed the process along with your Corium 21. Get back to your summer best faster and be ready sooner to face Summer again.

Of course, deep wounds and more serious injuries should always receive a thorough checking over from a medical professional.

Aloe Vera is for Everyone

The helpful plant gentle enough for the skin of every age, even children.

It’s aloe vera. It comes from a plant and has been revered as a gentle and effective botanical agent for thousands of years.

Put some Corium 21 in your go-to bag and get out there and enjoy the outdoors with confidence.
