How to Use Sunscreen with Bug Spray

Do you put on sunscreen or insect repellent first?

Embracing the outdoors this Summer? Don't forget your dynamic duo: sunscreen and bug spray!

But here's a little secret: the order you put them on matters more than you might think.  

First things first, start with your sunscreen. As usual, apply your sunscreen generously to all exposed skin about 15 minutes before heading outside. This allows it to fully absorb and create a protective barrier against harmful UV rays. 

Once your sunscreen is on and settled, it's time to tackle those pesky bugs.

Next, grab your bug spray and apply it to any remaining exposed skin. Be sure to follow the instructions on the label and avoid spraying directly on your face—opt for a hands-on application instead.  

Why the order matters

By applying sunscreen before bug spray, you ensure that both products can do their job effectively. Sunscreen shields your skin from sun damage, while bug spray keeps those unwanted critters at bay.  

With your KINeSYS Sunscreen, remember to reapply every 80 minutes if you are swimming or sweating or every two hours and reapply you bug spray as per the instructions on their label. 

So, next time you're prepping for outdoor fun, remember sunscreen first, bug spray second, and all that is left is for you to enjoy your day.
