Skip the Hand Cream Before the Flight

Or the same thing might happen to you as happened to a doctor friend of mine.

Seems there’s a new test they do on your hands at the airport to check for explosives. She was detained because she tested positive. How could that have happened? Turns out that the glycerin in hand cream causes the same response as explosives…and she had unwittingly applied cream to her hands on the way to the airport.

Speaking of hand creams, we have a terrific one that instantly smoothes skin (thanks to dimethicone) and even stays on after washing. And it doesn’t even feel greasy.

Check out MGMD Intensive Hand Cream.

Just don’t apply it when going through airport security!
