Air travel can be quite the process---between the amount of space on the plane (or lack thereof) and trying to get to your gate on time, you also have to worry about whether or not your beauty staples will even make it on board. More often than not, that massive jar of La Mer or your favorite Bumble and Bumble conditioner gets confiscated by airport security, but no longer! Soon enough, you won't have to toss your liquid-based beauty products while waiting for the TSA to scan your bag, thanks to a new set of regulations set to take effect in the near future.
TSA Administrator John Pistole said that airport security measures would be easing up on the 3-ounce liquid restriction, in an interview with the Chicago Tribune, which means your full-sized bottles of Rahua Body Lotion and Carven L'Eau de Toilette can stay safe and sound in your carry-on. Naturally, we're elated—depending on the product, there are times when those travel-sized versions just don't cut it, and if you're brave enough to pack the item in your checked baggage, you run the risk of having it leak all over your designer duds.
There's no word yet on when exactly the regulations will take effect, but jet-setters who are currently part of TSA's Pre-Check program will be the first to take advantage of the new rules, with a general rollout to the rest of us likely to happen afterwards. We'll be eagerly awaiting more info as news develops, but for now, we're just satisfied that we no longer have to sacrifice the liquids, gels, or aerosols stashed in our makeup bags to the airport's higher powers.
