Want to decrease your chances of getting bitten? Stick to light-colored clothing and avoid overexertion. (Dark hues, excessive breathing, and sweat are bug magnets).

It’s an unfortunate fact of life: Mosquito season is also barbecue season. Fortunately, we’ve discovered this citrusy salve. The powerful, yet natural formula keeps blood-sucking pests at bay without irritating your skin. Even better, it also helps relieve itchiness from previous bites.

How it Works

The workhorse of this potent lotion is IR3535, developed by Merck in the 1970s and recognized as one of the most powerful repellents for its long-term effectiveness against mosquitoes and ticks. Natural repellents, including lemon grass, citronella, and lavender provide backup support.

How to Use

Rub into exposed skin, particularly your ankles, neck, shoulders, and arms. Reapply as necessary.
