NAV­I­GAT­ING ON­BOARD TRAVEL LIM­ITS

Fashion Magazine - - A Commercial Profile -

New reg­u­la­tions were in­tro­duced last year for any­one trav­el­ling through an EU air­port, which spec­ify that liq­uids, banned en­tirely for one brief pe­riod, are now al­lowed but only in con­tain­ers of 100mls or less.

Gels, pastes, lo­tions and cos­met­ics all fall un­der this head­ing too, and must be in sim­i­larly small con­tain­ers to pass muster.

Sharp items never had a chance in hand lug­gage, and the old stan­dards still ap­ply. Nail scis­sors, metal nail files and, hor­ror of hor­rors, tweez­ers, will all be con­fis­cated so get rid of stray hairs and hang nails be­fore

Once your hand lug­gage has been ex­am­ined and given the all-clear, you are at lib­erty to re­plen­ish your makeup and al­co­hol sup­ply from within the con­fines of the air­port’s se­cure area.

And with all th­ese reg­u­la­tions, you even have a le­git­i­mate ex­cuse to stock up on new beauty prod­ucts.
