The Transportation Security Administration allows passengers to bring liquids and gels in trial-sized containers holding up to three ounces. This is permitted on flights as long as they are in a quart-sized clear plastic bag and available for inspection at security checkpoints. This is good news for dry skin sufferers, who usually carry skin care products like moisturizers to soothe their sensitive skin in the particularly irritating stale, low humidity air on planes. The air on planes is heavily laden with residues from pesticides or cleaning products and the cabins are full of fumes from hydraulic fluid spills. This toxic environment has made many people ill, as is witnessed by the thousands of complaints and even legal suits from flight attendants and passengers, and is very irritating to the skin.
Skin care tips:
A shielding lotion remedies the problem by bonding with the outer layer of the skin to form a protective barrier that locks in the skin’s natural moisture and prevents contact with and absorption through the skin of the harmful air-borne chemicals on planes, and those that may be in the fabric of the seats.
