BODYGUARD® should be applied every 7 hours to maintain protection.
To get the maximum benefits we recommend spraying over exposed areas of skin and then using your hands to spread the product all over. Just like applying sunscreen the patches you miss will still be vulnerable to mosquito bites, so using your hand to ensure even coverage, will help provide maximum protection.
BODYGUARD should not be sprayed directly onto your face, instead spray onto your hands and then pat onto your face taking care to avoid the eye area.
Don't forget to rub BODYGUARD onto your ears and your neck... both hot spots that mosquitos love!
TOP TIP! Know the types of mosquitoes found in your destination... some mosquitoes like Anopheles (transmits malaria) bite especially at night however the Aedes or tiger mosquito (transmits dengue fever, chickungunya or yellow fever) bites mostly during the day (morning or early evening).
Knowing when mosquitoes are most active in your area allows you to be prepared!

Numerous clinical studies have shown that the alcohol we use is absolutely non-irritating to healthy skin and the data supports the absence of phototoxic potential. Alcohol poses no risk in the sun. On the other hand, it can dehydrate the upper layers of the epidermis. This is why we have enriched the BODYGUARD® formula with a moisturising agent.
