Summer is nearly over and a new school year is just around the corner—so, let's get real.

Switching from a summer routine to a school schedule can actually get quite stressful for everyone in the household. More than just the kids physically and mentally preparing themselves, us moms ought to be prepared too.

As this new season unfolds, many parents worry less about protecting their family from insect bites. But in fact, mosquitoes are still active during this time, and can be more than just a nuisance. They can spread the viruses or bacteria that cause illnesses such as dengue or even Zika. Always remember to protect yourself and your family.

Here are a few tips:

Have your kids wear light-colored clothing, as mosquitoes are less likely to land on them. Making them wear shoes and socks are also recommended.

Apply OFF! Lotion before stepping out. Spread on to clothing and exposed skin as well.

When using OFF! it is important to read and take note of the product directions.

It also helps if you prevent mosquitoes from entering your home by ensuring door and window screens are intact. You should also ensure that your garden or yard is free from containers which can hold stagnant water, which can become mosquito breeding grounds.

These precautionary measures aren't all that difficult. OFF! Lotion is one easy solution to our mosquito woes. It's simple, safe and practical for the whole family.

Personally, I use OFF! lotion because it is and always has been effective, no matter how many mosquitoes there are. I practically become invisible to them! #truestory

So for my kids, I didn’t look any further. OFF! For Kids is my constant solution. I also love the subtle, fruity scent to keep them fresh during the day. With that in mind, a bottle of OFF! Lotion should always be accessible—one in your bedroom, another in your kid’s school bag, and in the living room.

Mosquito repelling should be a constant practice in every household so that whenever your kids head out to school, (even without you having to remind them) you will have nothing to worry about.

Aren't you glad that OFF! has got the solution to all our repelling needs?

Aside from OFF! Lotion for Kids, as well as OFF! Overtime, there are two other variants, OFF! Soft & Scented and OFF! Clean Feel- which are all equally perfect for the family.

If we all make a conscious effort to keep our family free from these deadly viruses, we will all truly live happier and worry-free lives. --Mikaela Lagdameo Martinez, mom of 3
