The upcoming Chinese New Year festivities are around the corner, and it’s a time that brings together family and friends to ring in good luck and fortune for the coming year. Leading up to this festive season, if you are travelling out of state to celebrate, or simply taking the opportunity to travel over the long weekend with your family, it is bound to be a busy period preparing for the journey.

If travelling with young children, this can increase the anxiety of parents that want to be prepared for the unexpected, and ensure basic travel necessities are packed. To provide travelling families with ease of mind during this period, 3M Malaysia has compiled a list of supplies that should be part of your travel kit so that you and your family can enjoy the holiday and ring in the lunar New Year with luck and prosperity.

Prepare your first aid kit

Whether they’re out of routine, jet-lagged, or eating less healthily, kids always seem to get ill on holiday. Have a first aid kit that includes a thermometer, antiseptic wipes and medicines suited for young children and adults. For kids with allergies, do ensure to make a visit to your pediatrician to obtain the required medications in case of emergencies.

Also, minor cuts or scrapes aren’t fun, but they don’t need to ruin the day! Keep a box or two of Nexcare™ Clear Waterproof Bandages on hand to provide 360° sealing of the wound to protect against water, dirt and germs. For young children, try the Nexcare™ Tattoo Waterproof Bandages design that they are sure to love!

Giving mummies peace of mind

There’s nothing more distressing when your baby is uncomfortable due to a nappy rash, sensitive skin or a skin allergy. Diaper changing can be tiresome as some nappy rash creams on the market can be heavy and sticky – which makes your baby even more uncomfortable, especially when it requires multiple applications. 

To give mother’s everywhere peace of mind during long trips, and to make diaper changing fun again, why not try the 3M™ Cavilon™ Durable Barrier Cream?  It’s Paraben free, pH-balanced, hypoallergenic and protects baby skin for long lasting comfort and healing in preventing nappy rash. It is cost-effective as all you need is a pea-size amount to cover the entire affected area. It also resists wash-off and requires fewer applications than typical moisture barriers, saving time and effort.  

Bring on the snacks

As adults know all too well, eating gives you something to do. Pack some healthy snacks for the children to keep them occupied. Healthy snacks such as sliced veggies or fruits, filtered water or juices and milk biscuits can help keep hunger pangs away in between meals –  and avoids bringing out the hangry side of children.

When you can’t hold it in any longer!

Ever been in a situation where you needed a toilet but were either stuck in a massive traffic gridlock or just missed the rest stop area? The 3M™ Portable Toilet may prove to best thing for emergency relief when there’s no toilets nearby, especially with young children in the car.

The disposable toilet system is compact in size, with revolutionary technology to absorb liquid waste and turns it into an odourless, spill-proof bag that is non-toxic and safe for disposal.

Stay minty fresh on the road

Perhaps you just pulled an all-nighter driving, or stopped for a nasi lemak break just before arriving at your destination. Either way, the 3M™ Clinpro™ Tooth Crème can be used in place of your usual toothpaste. With no rinsing involved, simply put it on your toothbrush and brush away! Remember not to swallow any of crème and you are good to go!

In conjunction with Chinese New Year celebrations, 3M Malaysia will be running attractive promotions and discounts from 1st February to 21st February 2018 on Lazada! Buy one Cavilon™ Durable Barrier Cream 92 grams and get one FREE Cavilon™ Durable Barrier Cream 28 grams. Also, consumers can enjoy discounts up to 28% on Clinpro™ Tooth Crème and 50% discount off the 3M™ Portable Toilet three piece packs.

Also, enjoy a 20% discount on Nexcare products featured above from 1st February to 21st February 2018 at www.guardian.com.my

Note: Do not use 3M™ Cavilon™ Durable Barrier Cream on infected skin as this is used for prevention of damage to intact skin at risk of breakdown. If the skin is already open or damaged, protection of such skin may be better accomplished with 3M™ Cavilon No Sting Barrier Film. Cavilon No Sting Barrier Film is uniquely formulated to be alcohol-free so that it does not sting on broken or irritated skin, at the same time forms a waterproof film barrier when applied to the skin.
