Airplane Awareness


I like to travel as often as possible. This city can get a bit rainy, and for me travel is the spice of life. Lately though, I've found that carrying my must-have products has been a tad more difficult when it comes to air travel. You know the drill. When at the security checkpoint, you find yourself trying to cram your 2 0z and smaller bottles into a sandwich bag, hoping that they don't find your prized La Mer jar stashed inside the bottom of your purse. I once gave my sandwich bag to a girl who was crying hysterically in front of me because she had nowhere to store two brand new bottles of cologne that she had purchased in New York for her boyfriend's birthday--or at least that's the story she told me.

Here's how to avoid this near-death situation. Make sure that you are well aware of your favorite items--those ones you just can't part with--and how large they are. The current rule is 2 oz, yet I've been able to get through with a 4 ouncer that had been half "used" (as determined by the security personnel), and also some stray Kiehl's shampoo and conditioner that apparently the scanner had been too tired to notice. You can't count on luck though. If there's something that you absolutely can't be without, secure it well and stash it in your checked luggage. Everything else must fit in your sandwich bag, and they might as well be things that you love to use on the plane when you feel the moisture ripped away from under your feet.

Here are a few things I can't be without. Moisturizer. I'm mostly concerned about the kind for my face, because my skin starts to literally feel like it's falling off under the influence of all that recycled plane air. Philosophy's Hope in a Jar does just the trick, and they offer a size that is air-safe. Concealer and lip balm are also important to me, because I may or may not have been able to sleep (depending on who I'm seated by), and I will most likely need some under-eye concealer for those dark circles. I stash one tube of mascara, only to be used after I get off of my flight, so that I can instantly awaken and meet my family/friends looking wide-eyed. Another little secret I stash, is to bring along my Rehydrate powder mix, which can be mixed with some water right before landing. It helps to alleviate any dehydration and get my energy up and going for a long day that may be ahead.

Cosmetic companies are well aware of the situation at hand, and have created miniature versions of their popular products. Many airports are now also featuring stores like the Body Shop near the gates, where you can pick up items that you may think you need and have forgotten. I've found that this is a good way to pick up a bottle of anything that you would also want over 2 oz., even if just to know that you're breaking the rules Flying can be so heavenly if you pack the appropriate products, while still travelling light.
