Bug off: Keep your summer insect free with new products

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).

Bug Guard Plus IR3535® Expedition SPF 30 ($14-$16) – Available as an Aerosol Spray and Pump Spray, this Vitamin E-enriched formula protects against sun damage while warding off evildoers.

Bug Guard Plus Picaridin ($14-$16) – Ideal for protection during dusk/dawn, which is when bugs are most active, this formula provides long-lasting protection against deer ticks that can transmit Lyme disease and mosquitoes that may carry West Nile virus.
