Ringworm is a concern for those who camp or hike regularly. Ringworm can be found on any part of the body, but for those who regularly enjoy the woods, mountains, and lakes, ringworm is a common problem. Anyone can get ringworm. Just like other skin conditions like athletes foot and the MRSA superbug, ringworm is contagious. Ringworm thrives best on skin that is moist, hot, and hidden from the light. This is the reason why ringworm shows up on campers and hikers who enjoy the woods or mountains. During the summer when it is warm, the woods maintain moisture, but not all areas of the woods are as sunny as the beach. The trees provide shade for most of those areas, so fungi like ringworm thrive there.

This is why we recommend Stiefel Zeasorb AF Lotion/Powder Outdoor and Adventure Skin Care. It is a powerful medicated powder to get rid of ringworm and prevent it from spreading. In addition, this powder is good for those who have had ringworm in the past and are currently planning an outdoor adventure. The powder will prevent ringworm, giving you the security you need to enjoy your outdoor adventure. Tip: Do not share towels or other personal hygiene items. If you are going to the beach or lake, carry your wet items in a wet case or plastic bag until they are washed. Bring your own beach towel and hair comb.


Jack Black Sun Guard Spray Sunscreen, SPF 25. We like this sun guard spray because it contains natural citronella, lemongrass and spearmint. These are natural ingredients that bugs do not like. This special blend from Jack Black is odorless and absorbs into the skin immediately, unlike many other brands. We feel secure using Jack Black Sun Guard Spray with its high sun protection factor, and it works as a bug repellant. All of this in only one bottle. It’s a deal.


Pedinol Fungoid Tincture is for the bravest and strongest of scouts. This is an oral treatment for the prevention of fungi and other bacteria that develop on the skin. The best part about this treatment is that it is not damaging to the liver like other oral anti-fungal treatments. We recommend Pendinol Fungoid Tincture for prevention and maintenance of clean healthy skin. It is one of best products available for those who are regular adventurist such as professional athletes, those who work outdoors, and those brave ole scouts discovering and helping the world we live in.

Sun Tanning and Sunless Tanners

Skin Care Products for A Total Body Tan

A little color goes a long way. Today’s skin care products for tanning offer more choices and more benefits for your skin than yesteryear. Some tanners allow you to enjoy the sun with minimal sun protection, while other tanning products allow you to enjoy a fake bake without the damaging effects of the sun. Some of the benefits from tanning products include anti-aging benefits, vitamins, moisture, and other natural ingredients to calm the senses and provide overall well-being. Many choices are available depending on your desired look, your lifestyle, and other needs. Whether you want it fake or you want to bake, will give you complete coverage of the healthiest sunless tanners and sun tanning products available for what you want and what you need.

One of the biggest considerations before buying a tanning product is the tanner’s shelf life. Most self-tanners have a shelf life of approximately six months.
