At an exclusive picnic-themed party for media and tastemakers, OFF! introduced:
  • OFF! Clip-On provides mosquito protection without applying anything else to the skin. Clip it to your purse, belt, beach bag or lawn chair, and relax. No spray, no mess.
  • OFF! Mosquito Lamp works for up to six hours and protects an area up to 10 x 10.

Keep the mosquitoes away from your next backyard barbecue.

OFF! also offered a few tips on how to stay bug-free this summer:
  • Peak mosquito hours are from dusk to dawn!
  • Sweat attracts mosquitoes, and believe it or not, so does breathing. So make sure to stay protected when participating in sports or other outdoor activities.
  • To avoid bug bites, avoid fruity and floral fragrances.  That means, skip scented soaps, lotions, perfumes and hair products if heading outside.
  • Spray yourself as well as your clothing to help keep mosquitoes at bay.

To help you #GetBackOutThere, OFF! has an Instagram contest through August 18, 2015. Just share a photo for a chance to win $10,000 towards an epic backyard makeover.
  • Step 1: Take a picture of your favorite outdoor activity.
  • Step 2: Follow @OffOutdoors on Instagram and tag: #GetBackOutThere #OFFSweeps
  • Winners will be randomly selected after the close of the contest on August 18.

One regretful ensemble: Lime green and white checkered pants with a matching lime green
