Tips for choosing travel-size sunscreen.

It's no secret that sunscreen is effective in protecting your skin from the sun's harmful rays. The problem arises in deciding which sunscreen to choose when you need to travel light. 

Using sunscreen and taking other sun protection precautions, such as wearing a hat, wearing protective clothing and avoiding sunlight in the middle of the day when UV rays are most intense, can reduce the risk of early aging, wrinkles, age spots, and even skin cancer. Even if you're indoors, chances are there of some UV rays heading for your skin.

The Australian, Canadian and American Colleges of Dermatology recommend using sunscreen when outdoors and choosing an oil-free sunscreen that protects the skin from sun damage without clogging pores.

How do I select the best Travel-Size Sunscreen? 

The problem arises when you need to travel light. Carrying a large bottle of sunscreen isn't convenient or permitted as hand carry on and is going to get you held up at airport security every time. On the other hand, finding a perfectly-sized travel sunscreen can be difficult. The easiest way to do this is to purchase a KINeSYS Performance 1oz / 30ml travel-sized sunscreen that you can carry around everywhere, ensuring you always have some SPF within reach so you can reapply as necessary throughout the day.

  • Oil-free - You will get to renew your skin every time without clogging pores or adding extra shine/grease
  • Hypoallergenic – Our formula contains only high-quality, skin-friendly ingredients to provide highly-effective broad-spectrum UVA and UVB skin protection. It's safe for even the most sensitive skin types.
  • Light and fast-absorbing - Dry quickly to a matte finish, leaving your skin feeling silky and smooth.
  • Doesn't leave your skin feeling greasy.
  • Easy to apply.

Flying with Sunscreen - Tips and Regulations 

It's our aim to pack light and that means travelling carry-on only. Carrying a large bottle of sunscreen isn't convenient or allowed. It is absolutely essential that you adhere to the 3-1-1 liquids rule whenever you're planning to travel with carry-on luggage.

TSA regulations 
The TSA (Transportation Security Administration) has limitations on liquids in carry-on luggage. The 3-1-1 for carry-ons only allows individuals to bring a quart-sized, clear, zip-top bag of fluids including gels, creams, pastes etc. through the checkpoint. This is limited to 3.4 ounces/100 ml or less per item. Liquids in containers larger than 3.4 ounces can be transported only in checked luggage, even if the bottle or tube isn't completely full.

Considering that the restrictions on baggage for international flights are so strict, it's important to find the right balance between having all the necessities without paying for excess luggage on your next flight. The lack of planning and preparation by travelers slows down the line and leads to long and frustrating delays to get through security. Practicing 3-1-1 will ensure a fast and smooth checkpoint experience.

To help you fly through security checks, take advantage of our mini travel size KINeSYS Spray Sunscreen that allows you to minimize your luggage weight and space. It's also convenient and easy to stash in your bag, for on-the-go application, without worrying about accidental leaks or spills.
