Dress to Not Impress

Mosquitoes are attracted to dark colors and the eau of your skin.

So invest in a travel wardrobe comprised of light-colored clothes that cover most of your body—creating fewer places for those buggers to land.

To stay cool and dry in hot and humid climates, where mosquitoes thrive most, buy clothes with wick moisture protection and UPF sun protection via brands like Columbia.

Your new travel wardrobe will keep you cool and comfy no matter where you travel—from the city to the jungle.

If journeying to places with a higher risk of mosquito-borne infection, bring along a:

  • workout headband to cover your ears;
  • handkerchief or scarf to cover your neck; and
  • lightweight pair of glove liners for your hands.
