Summer is built for play. Lots & lots of play. From mountain biking to fishing, hiking & a plethora of other activities ~ also lots of time spent whipping up burgers & bites on the grill. I’ve teamed up with the folks at Johnson & Johnson to bring you some helpful summer & back to school inspiration. We want y’all to get out there & play ~ encourage you to get inspired whether that involves trying something new or just devoting more time to your favorite activities. Around here we have first aid kits everywhere, in my Jeep, backpacks, kitchen & medicine cabinets. You never know when you’ll need some extra care… Our kits include the following: BAND-AID® Brand Adhesive Bandages, NEOSPORIN®, Johnson & Johnson RED CROSS® Brand First Aid products, BENADRYL® Topicals and BENGAY® We live a super active lifestyle & they have protection to help protect us. Having these items at the ready is a must! It’s inevitable that there will be skinned knees, raspberries from brambles & some little stumbles here & there. In the summer I grill a whole lot. What that means is I sometimes might cause a few little accidents. Maybe a small burn or nick from a sharp knife from time to time. The mosquitos can also buzz in & cause some serious itchy skin. Speaking of grilling…..Here are a few grilled favorites you gotta try! Grilled Thai Spice Chicken Sliders with Sriracha Mayo…. Roasted Corn with Harissa Butter ~ wrap it in foil & cook on the grill! Hot dogs are always great in steamy months…try these Summer Dogs for kicks…. With first aid right near by I feel way more comfortable knowing I can dress a wound instantly & move on with my summer fun. These products can be very helpful to keep my family & I playing hard all summer long. We all need to know about proper wound care in times of boo boo’s & ouchies. I’m totally in love with these designer Issac Mizrahi Band-Aids…. Also, these Our Veteran Heroes bandages are fabulous! Love the camo & patriotic pop… So how do we practice proper first aid care? Well, first of all we know that minor cuts and scrapes can become contaminated with dirt and germs, which might cause infection and delay healing. That’s no fun. We practice BAND-AID® Brand’s easy-to-follow 3-step process to promote better healing.
- First we CLEAN: flush & clean the affected area with mild soap and water.
- Second we COVER: using NEOSPORIN® First Aid Antibiotic (this can also increase healing time)
- Third we PROTECT: Covering the affected area with a BAND-AID® Brand Adhesive Bandage. Keep it covered until the wound is completely healed. This protects the wound from water, dirt, and germs that can cause infection, thereby helping to promote fast healing.
