Aveeno 1% Hydrocortisone Anti-Itch Creme

I do not normally feature products like this, which I would classify as ‘first aid’ products.  Instead I usually try to stick to strickly beauty related products.  However, last week I got more bug bites than I got all summer.  I managed to get 20 mosquito bites, and countless gnat bites in a few hour span.

That being said, on the way home from my bug bite filled trip, I stopped at the drug store and picked up just about anything that promised to help with my bug bites.  In addition to this I also picked up an itch relief spray and some childrens Benadryl in an attempt to curb the horrible itch.

I would rate this product 6/10

Dealing with Bacne

Bacne (N.)

1. Back-acne, Acne on ones Back

Urban Dictionary

Let’s be honest, we have all had some sort of bacne at some point in our life.  For me it is something I have had to struggle with for a long time.  While I was fortunate to have minimal acne on my face all through high school I refused to wear tank tops due to the condition of my back.

That being said I have found several steps that can help reduce the likely hood of bacne.  While these tips may be obvious to some, they took me a long time to pick up on without being told, and I figured my lessons learned might help someone else.
