Amoy-araw isn't a myth—in fact no words can be more fitting to describe the scent wafting through the air when your kids come in from an afternoon of playing outdoors. Now that summer has officially kicked in, it's good to be prepared for these instances, or better yet, follow these tips in order to avoid amoy-araw altogether.
Bring a small towel and change of clothes everywhere they go
Even if it's just a trip to the playground, pack an extra shirt in case your child gets extra sweaty. Take a quick trip to the bathroom or a nearby faucet and help him freshen up with a splash of water on his face. An extra set of clothes in the car comes in handy during a long drive.
Have a basin with small toys inside the shower area or bathtub so your child will associate bathtime with a little playtime. In between activities, after resting, of course, have your child take a quick shower to freshen up.
Wash clothes regularly and dry them well
Soak sweaty clothes immediately to get the odor and sweat stains out. Don't leave them in the washing machine, and whenever possible, hang them outside to dry. Fold them and store inside your child's closet right away.
Schedule outdoor activities later in the afternoon
Avoid the sun between 10 a.m. and 4 p.m. when the sun's rays are strongest. (Limiting sun exposure also helps care for your child’s skin.) Instead, catch the morning sun when you take a walk around the village, and reserve playtime outdoors for after 4 p.m.
