Be cautious with combination products (such as those containing both sunscreen and insect repellent). Sunscreen should be applied generously, while an excessive application of insect repellant isn't necessarily a good idea.
When in a situation where you need to apply both sunscreen and insect repellant, skip the two-in-one option. Instead, use a separate sunscreen (applied liberally) followed by a light application of insect repellent as a mosquito barrier.
