Shielding lotions retain 40-50 percent of your natural moisture in the skin and it lasts for hours, making it a great option in light of these new airline regulations. People can use this dry skin treatment to stay moisturized for hours even though they are exposed to the dehydrating atmosphere in the airplane cabin.

While we heave a sigh of relief that authorities thwarted another terrorist attack, the recent ban on liquids during air travel by Homeland Security and the Transportation Security Administration will take its toll on travelers. The dehydrating effect of plane flight is well documented and spending hours in an arid airplane cabin can cause severe dry skin conditions. In-flight air is drier than any of the world's deserts. Relative humidity is 20-25 percent in the Sahara or Arabian deserts, while optimum comfort is around 50 percent humidity. In-flight cabin humidity gradually falls on long-distance, high-altitude flights and in many cases approaches 1 percent.
Most travelers fight this effect with lots of water and frequent applications of moisturizing lotion. Since lotions are banned in your carry on luggage, this is no longer an option. One recent article offering suggestions for travelers cites the unappealing option of using heavier, greasier creams and lotions. However, GLOVES IN A BOTTLE, a shielding lotion with a light formula, provides a more comfortable dry skin treatment option that will last throughout those long flights without the need for frequent applications or the greasy aftermath of using thicker creams or oils.
GLOVES IN A BOTTLE bonds with the outer layer of your skin locking in your natural oils and moisture – the reason why dermatologists recommend the product as an effective dry skin treatment. “Heavier creams will get in the way of normal travel activities such as opening suitcases or bottles, filling in forms or reading a book,” said Dr. Brian Zogg, a dermatologist with a successful practice in Minnesota. “Shielding lotions retain 40-50 percent of your natural moisture in the skin and it lasts for hours, making it a great option in light of these new airline regulations. People can use this dry skin treatment to stay moisturized for hours even though they are exposed to the dehydrating atmosphere in the airplane cabin.”
The Transportation Security Administration recently revised the security alert to permit some prescription medications, as well as a few other exceptions; however travelers should be well prepared to fly without their usual lotions in their carry on luggage. Apply a shielding lotion with increased moisture-retention properties that can last the duration of the flight and pack any liquids, lotions and gels in checked luggage.
