TSA-Approved Beauty Products

by Сашка

Passing through airport security can be a nightmare—especially if you accidentally packed a full-size bottle of liquid, gel, or aerosol in your carry-on bag. To ensure passenger safety, the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) enforces strict regulations on which beauty products you can and can’t bring onboard. Their packing protocol is easy to follow if you remember these carry-on guidelines:

  1. You’re allowed to pack individual 3.4 ounce (or 100 mL) containers of liquids, gels, and aerosols.
  2. All toiletries must be placed in one clear quart-size, zip-top bag—one per passenger.
  3. You must declare medically necessary liquids, such as breast milk, baby formula, and insulin to a security officer prior to boarding. You are allowed to bring more than 3.4 ounces, but it must be in a reasonable quantity.
  4. While technically allowed on the plane, never apply nail polish during your flight! It’s inconsiderate and dangerous to other passengers.
  5. If you’re not sure about a product, don’t pack it. Better to leave it at home than have it confiscated.

If you’re still unsure on what to pack, try these five airplane-ready products and stay stress-free in the security line!
