With the arrival of warmer weather, outdoor activities are most likely going to ramp up leading into summer. Think beach outings, camping trips, park picnics, and backyard BBQs. Without sounding like the fun police, prolonged exposure to the elements can take a toll on our skin and unfortunately, pesky insect bites come with the territory. 

According to a recent study commissioned by Lucas’ Papaw Remedies, almost half of Australians (48 per cent) have dealt with chapped or dry lips, while 44 per cent have experienced dry, cracked, or irritated skin. Additionally, 35 per cent have suffered from insect bites or stings, and a concerning 53 per cent have encountered minor burns.
