Using Both Sunscreen And Insect Repellent

Proper use of sunscreen and insect repellent are often vitally important when travelling abroad. Many people select their destinations to enjoy the sun and climate. Using an SPF sunscreen of 30 or more, applying it at least 30 minutes before sun exposure will ensure you get the most protection from your sunscreen. Insect protection is also very important as part of a strategy to avoid diseases in developing countries carried by mosquitoes such as Malaria, Dengue and Zika. Always apply a sunscreen on first, wait about 15 minutes and THEN apply the insect repellent. If not, the insect repellent may reduce the sunscreen’s efficacy.
