Sun damage can cause your skin to age faster, pigmentation issues like sun spots and, most importantly, skin cancer—the most common form of cancer. No matter which sunscreen you choose, the most important thing is that you use it properly.
It made me a sunscreen believer.
UPDATE: Less than a week after the Transportation Security Administration updated the guidelines on its website declaring sunscreen as a medically approved item and therefore will allow full-size products in carry-on bags, it appears they have taken it back. As of April 13, the website now states sunscreen should be less than 3.4-ounces when placed in carry-on bags.
When traveling and vacations resume, there’s now one less thing to worry about when you’re boarding a flight to your next sunny locale — or really just anywhere you intend to spend time outside. According to a recent announcement from the Travel Security Administration (TSA), airplane passengers can now travel with full-sized bottles of sunscreen in their carry-on bags. This small but significant change is thanks to the Department of Dermatology at Brown University, which challenged the TSA on the 3.4-ounce liquid limit because sunscreen is a necessary protectant against skin cancer, thus should be policed under the same regulations as carry-ons such as inhalers, contact solution, and medications. As of April 7, sunscreens and SPF products are considered by the TSA to be “medically-necessary liquids,” which means they’re permitted in larger quantities in carry-ons as long as you declare them to security officers at the TSA checkpoint for inspection. Provided you do that, you’re free to bring a full-sized bottle of sunscreen without concerns of confiscation. This new amendment comes ahead of National Skin Cancer Awareness Month in May. Currently, skin cancer is the most common form of cancer in the United States. According to the National Foundation For Cancer Research, 9,500 people are diagnosed with skin cancer in the United States every day. However, the organization also says that it is one of the most preventable and treatable forms of cancer. Given skin cancer’s strong correlation to exposure to ultraviolet (UV) rays, the National Foundation for Cancer Research advises that everyone use at least an SPF 15 or higher for regular use and 30 or above for outdoor activities. Re-applying sunscreen regularly — not just once a day — is essential to ensuring it’s an effective protectant against the sun, which makes being able to pack plenty of sunscreen all the more important.
