If you'd like to win one of two cool products, read on. Whether you're packing for a hot or cold weather vacation, it's likely you'll be including ointments, gels, salves or lotions that will help you deal with rashes, bites, burns or just chapped, dry skin. And finding a company that manufactures environmentally friendly products is a real plus. That's why I have long recommended products by All Terrain, a New Hampshire-based company that's focused on natural ingredients and children's health. (They support organizations that are concentrating on reducing childhood obesity by promoting an active lifestyle.)
I recommend two of All Terrain's products --Aloe Gel
and Herbal Armor Spray -- on the laminated list that's included with Doc-in-a-Bag, my unique travel first-aid kit organizer. (I've blogged about this first-aid-kit organizer here and here.) And, with the holidays fast approaching, I'm holding a savvy travel giveaway, thanks to All Terrain that's providing these two products, each to one lucky winner.
Amazon. It's safe for children, it won't irritate your skin nor will it damage your clothing, and it's water and sweat resistant. Because it's 100% effective over a two-hour period, I simply reapplied it every two hours to remain mosquito free. The giveaway is the 4 oz. size that retails for $8.99.
To enter the contest, simply leave a comment on this post as to how you try to stay healthy while traveling during the holidays. Make sure to include a way for me to contact you (whether your email, Twitter or Facebook account) in case you're one of the winners. All comments must be submitted by 11:59 pm on
December 23, 2013. I will randomly choose two winners who will each randomly receive one of the two products above. You must be a U.S. resident to be eligible to receive the
prize. Good luck everyone.

I bring antibacterial wipes and I wipe down just about everything on my airline seat and tray, including the buttons for the light and the call button
We find peace in digestion by munching Bean-o tabs before tasting unfamiliar food.
I have been taking Vitamin D for several years and have managed to avoid getting sick.
Hi Brette, Smart move. I typically bring alcohol swabs with me. And, since I drink soda out of a can sometimes, I've used the swab along the lip of the can, too, when traveling in places with poor hygiene.
Hi Vera, Bean-o is a great product. Good idea to bring that along.
Hi Alexandra, I too take vitamin D, 2000 IU a day. More and more studies are finding out how important it is.
I make sure to get enough sleep. And try not to overeat.
What I do is keep a couple of chap sticks in purse and pocket, also fisherman's friend lozenges, as well as drinking mt teas with fresh grated ginger.
I always get great ideas from your site for when I travel. Some of these things that are good to keep in the car, too, for everyday use. Thanks so much.
Hi Jennifer, Two great pieces of advice that I follow as well. Overeating on the plane is a particular no-no. And I always try to get enough rest when flying as well.
Hi Michael-Ann, Carrying around lip balm is a great idea. Once I lost mine in northern Iceland and was stuck with chapped lips for a week. (There's wasn't any place to buy it where I was hiking.) Those lozenges are great for a cough/sore throat. And I've found that mint tea with ginger really settles an upset stomach.
Hi merr, Thanks so much for your kind comments. Good luck with the giveaway. Yes, either of these two products are great to just carry in the car for when you'll be driving to a hiking trail or the beach.
These are all great ideas. I also recommend getting a flu shot.
Hi Heather, This is the first year I got a flu shot. Every year I got the flu. Got sick of it.
I'm trying to exercise regularly through the holidays.
Hi Ruth, Exercising, especially when traveling, is so important. I always bring a jump rope with me when I travel. It's very easy to pack.
