Step 1: What You Need
-an itchy mosquito bite ( the bite in these picture are from the back of my knee..i know they look dirty but i swear they are clean :)
-toner/astringent - for mine i will be using one i use on my face with salicylic acid, Ive also heard witch hazel works well
Step 2: How to Apply
-take the cotton ball and apply astringent to it until damp
-wipe cotton ball over the bite area
the astringent should be cleaning out the mosquito saliva, which is actually the cause the swelled, itchy bite mark.
Step 3: Ta-da
The itching should have stopped immediately after application and the sweeling should go away within 5 minutes. Now back to the great outdoors :)
