The end is nigh! The end of Summer that is. Officially, Summer ends on Wednesday, 22 September – that’s less than a month away! We hope you’ve managed to soak up some sunny rays, even if we haven’t been able to jet off to exotic locations like we usually would have. We’ve certainly managed to safely top up our tans while using mywipe suncream sachets!
Now, summer may be nearly over, but that doesn’t mean we’re safe from those harmful UV rays. It is easy to think you should only remain vigilant during the warmer months due to the intense heat, but this couldn’t be further from the case. Sun protection is vital throughout the year. In the right conditions, UV rays can be just as damaging in the Winter!
Of course, Summer is the most dangerous time for UVB rays, the main cause of sunburn, but it’s better to be safe than sorry. In fact, should you be at higher altitudes or around water, snow or ice, you could be more at risk than you realise. Snow reflects 80% of the UV light, so you actually get hit by it twice. Once from above and once from below! Hopefully it won’t be snowing any time soon, but it’s worth keeping in mind.
With that said, how can we stay safe in the coming months? It just wouldn’t be practical to carry bottles of suncream with you everywhere you go, so what’s the alternative?
We’re all going on a… Autumn holiday?
With the world starting to open back up, many of us will be looking abroad for a late holiday this year to get away from the British weather. So, if you’re zooming off for sunny shores, now would be a great time to stock up on suncream sachets! Our sachets are perfect for holidays in the sun. Mywipe individual suncream sachets provide SPF25 protection from both UVA and UVB rays. They dry really quickly too and won’t leave you slick and greasy like other suncreams.
They also adhere to airline restrictions, so you won’t need to worry about having them in your hand luggage as you head onto a plane. Unlike bottles, they will easily fit in your bag and won’t spill, leak, get messy or slippery. This also makes them perfect for days out! Whether you’re on a bike ride, waiting in those stuffy theme park queues or just chilling by the sea, mywipe suncream sachets are the ultimate travel solution for suncream.
Hang on though, you might be all sorted for sun protection, but what can you do about those mozzies? You might be buzzing to go on holiday, but they will be buzzing to see you. We reckon they will be hungry after a couple of years of waiting too! Luckily Guardpack have you covered with our insect repellent wipes.
Our insect repellent wipes are impregnated with the highly effective Citrepel 75®. This contains 75% PMD, which is a naturally-sourced active ingredient that is amazing at keeping away those bitey blighters. A lot of travellers still opt for DEET-based repellents, because it is the only one they have heard of, but Citrepel 75® offers better protection in a natural product. This makes it a fantastic DEET alternative insect repellent. What’s not to like? These individual insect repellent wipes are suitable for anyone over 6 months old and can last for up to 6 hours, so you and the kids can stay bite-free throughout the day.
Suncream sachets are safe for kids
Speaking of the kids, can you believe they are heading back to school already/at last? It seems like it’s been forever and also no time at all. How does that work? Anyway, with them going back to school, are you prepared? The kids are heading off and, in this climate, who knows when it’ll be sunny? It could be raining in the morning and scorching hot by the afternoon!
It’s best to be safe and ensure they are sun-ready any day of the week, especially for school trips, or you might have some red faces coming home from a day in the sun! We know it can be tough to decide which products to use on your young ’uns, but you can rest easy knowing that mywipe suncream sachets are specially designed to be safe and suitable for everyone, especially those with sensitive skin.
It can be easy to forget to give the kids suncream for the school day too. However, you don’t want to leave bottles of suncream in their bags either, the way they get tossed around! It’s inevitably going to leave a mess! Coming in packs of 20 or cases of 500, sachets of suncream are a very cost-effective way of keeping your kids safe in the sun. You can just tuck a few away in their bags, making sure they can stay safe for a few days, without fear of them leaking or getting sticky. They make enough of a mess already, without adding to the risk!
