Skin So Soft for Dogs?

I’ve recently had several people requesting Skin So Soft bath oil, but not too take a bath.prod_1189486_xl

Skin Do Soft Original

Can you believe Avon first introduced Skin So Soft in the early 1960’s.  Avon’s Skin So Soft is a bath oil, but as with many other products, people have found it useful for other applications.

Ever since it hit the market many decades ago, Avon’s Skin So Soft bath oil has maintained a reputation for repelling ticks, fleas and other insects without the use of harsh chemicals.  

Several years ago, Field and Stream magazine recommended mixing 1.5 ounces with a gallon of water and spraying it onto your dog just before heading out. A flea and tick shampoo is made using 1 cup of Skin So Soft and 1/2 cup liquid detergent in 3 gallons of water.

One friend received a similar recipe from her vet recently to treat her dog.  Even though Skin So Soft is a bath oil, people continue to use it for pets. 

One study showed that Sponging dogs with Skin So Soft Original bath oil resulted in a 40 percent drop in flea infestation, for a limited time.

Avon Bug Guard

Since its introduction of the Original Skin So Soft bath oil, Avon has expanded the Skin So Soft line to include new scents, new formulas, body wash, shower gels, and lotions to name a few.  Recently Bug Guard has been added to the line up.

What would be your ULTIMATE Girls Night In?

For me it would be something that i haven’t done since my daughter grew up.

A Saturday night Mani and Pedi party 👐👣 with my granddaughters, of course their moms Tessica, Amber, and Molly could come along.

We would have pizza 🍕for supper, then start a Disney princess 👑 movie marathon.

We would use Avon footworks to pamper our hands and feet, and choose fun Avon colors 💅to paint our nails.

We would then use a quick dry top coat so we could quickly have Grandma’s favorite movie snack (chocolate chips and popcorn), 🍫

Before we get ready for and a slumber party on the living room floor we would pamper our hands and feet with a special treat of moisture cream.

When my daughter was young, this was how we didn’ many Saturday nights.  It was our special, mom and me time.  It’s funny how some of these special times, those that are just about spending time together, and some of my fondest memories.  It seems in today’s busy world, we often forget that these slow down moments are the ones that get treasured the most.

Take a moment this weekend, to do just that.  Stop and enjoy the little moments, the quiet times, that are just about being together.

What is Lyme Disease

What is Lyme Disease?

Monica Nuxoll, May 2018

Lyme Disease is usually caused by the Borrelia burgdorferi bacteria. In the United States it is transmitted to humans through the bite of an infected blacklegged, tick also known as a deer tick. 

The bacteria is transmitted through the saliva of an infected tick. With more than 200,000 cases each year in the United States, you have a greater chance of getting bit by a tick if you live near heavily grassy or wooded areas or spend time Outdoors where ticks are prevalent.

Note if a tick bites you you may notice a small, red lump at the site, this is normal reaction to the bite and does not necessarily indicate an infection the infected tick has to attach and feed for at least 36 hours to spread the bacteria.

dermnet_rf_photo_of_tick_bite

The first sign of Lyme disease is a rash it can appear anywhere from 3 days up to a month after a tick bite the average amount of time before a rash appears is around one week.

 

Besides a rash, early signs of Lyme disease include chills and high fever.  Fatigue is another symptom. If you feel excessively tired with no apparent reason, it may be a symptom of Lyme disease.

If left untreated Lyme disease infections can lead to arthritis, shortness of breath, and irregular heartbeat.

Reducing exposure to ticks is the best defense against Lyme disease, Rocky Mountain spotted fever, and other tick-borne infections.

You and your family can take several steps to prevent and control Lyme disease. Well it is a good idea to take preventive measures against ticks year-round, be extra vigilant in warm months from April through September.

Tips to prevent and control exposure to ticks include, avoiding direct contact with ticks, avoiding wooded and Brushy areas with high grass and leaf litter, walk in the center of trails, and use a tick repellent on skin and clothing.

For best results without the use of DEET use a repellent that contains the picardian or IR3535 on exposed skin for protection that last several hours. Always follow product instructions. Parents should apply this tick repellent to their children, avoiding hands, eyes and mouth.
