How much do we have bugs? Let us count the ways. Living in South Florida has some low points, many of which include creepy crawly, or flying pests. Give yourself a break from the buzzing buggers with a host of new products from the always reliable Avon Skin So Soft Bug Guard formulas. This is the IT go-to choice for a bug-free, good-time outside. Why we like them: they’re tough on insects, but easy on you, and your nose. All are DEET-free and carry the Good Housekeeping Seal of Approval. Choose from among these great products – and keep them handy at Swim Week (we know the models will have already spritzed if they’re smart).
