Life hack: one trick to relieve mosquito bites

Summer – it’s the best time of year to head outside, enjoy the heat, relax near the water and make the most of the long sunny afternoons.

It’s also the time when mosquitos like to breed…

This means that you are probably going to be battling those itchy mosquito bites all summer if you’re heading outdoors.

Be safe!
