Skin Care Products Become a Hazard for the Transportation Security Administration

Share Article

Skin Care News Magazine clarifies what skincare items "fly" and what won't when traveling by air.

Skin care products have never before been seen as a problem or a threat to anyone. Unfortunately, in a post 9/11 world that is no longer true. The Transportation Security Administration (TSA) has put together a new set of rules banning skincare products and regular skin care items from carry-on luggage, as told in the latest article from Skin Care News Magazine: "No Fly Zone: What New Airline Security Guidelines Mean For Skincare Products".

Just the thought of flying without being able to use must-have skincare items has caused a ruckus within the general public, but due to the latest developments in terrorism, skin care products apparently aren't safe onboard airlines. To put things into perspective as to how popular skincare items are to men and women in general, the article gives this simple statistic from a 2004 survey:

According to's 2004 survey, more than a quarter of all women and one of every 100 men use at least 15 skincare products daily. And that's while on the ground…imagine the number of essential skin care products needed on an airplane.

For those who may not travel often enough to know which skincare items to take or what skin care products to not take, the article breaks it down verbatim:

Here are the new rules taken from the TSA's web site: "NO LIQUIDS OR GELS OF ANY KIND WILL BE PERMITTED IN CARRY-ON BAGGAGE. THESE ITEMS MUST BE IN CHECKED BAGGAGE. This includes all beverages, shampoo, suntan lotion, creams, tooth paste, hair gel and other items of similar consistency."

Skin care expert Tony Danzante's article "No Fly Zone: What New Airline Security Guidelines Mean For Skincare Products" may seem like a simple article that anyone could find information on but when it comes to the particular area of skincare, Danzante says it isn't that simple. "These lists of what skincare products and what skin care items can be taken on a plane and what should be left at home are always changing. Don't be surprised if there's a mini series of such articles to help readers avoid a rude awakening when they realize their favorite skin care product can't go with them on the plane." covers all skincare and beauty topics from head to toe.
