Arrow BulletSunscreen and Insect Repellents

Apply sunscreen 20-30 minutes BEFORE outdoor activities and THEN apply insect repellent AFTER the 20-30 minute period.

Be aware: If a combination of sunscreen and DEET products are used, they should be used as an insect repellent ONLY and NOT as a sunscreen. Insect repellents and sunscreens are applied in opposite ways – insect repellents should be applied sparingly while sunscreens should be applied liberally for best protection.
