Gluten Free Skincare

Just like a longer daily commute or a snow-shoveling backache, dry skin is an unpleasant, but inevitable, outcome of harsh winter weather. Finding the right products to battle these arid conditions is never easy, and, for some with gluten sensitivities, this process can be even more difficult. Even though people disagree on the effect topical products have for those with gluten allergies or intolerances, some people do experience physiological symptoms. Keep in mind, just like ingesting gluten, symptoms vary for each individual; so ultimately, you know and must decide what works best for your body. In the meantime, here are some helpful tips for anybody looking to make their makeup bag or bathroom cabinet gluten-free friendly.

Lipstick and Lip Gloss

It is pretty difficult to not ingest lipstick or lip gloss, so regardless of whether you have sensitivities to topical gluten or not, it best to be safe and choose gluten free lip products.

Don’t be afraid to ask

If you have any questions, don’t be scared to contact the company to find out the answers. Additionally, once you find a trustworthy brand that uses gluten free ingredients, stick with them! Some of these gluten free friendly companies include:

    Just discovered the MyChelle (for mature skin) line at my local Whole Foods Market. I am certainly impressed with the quality as I had to give up Lancome and Shiseido. Although I did buy some face cream of Burt’s Bees and Juicy Beauty…Burt’s has a rather disctinct "fragrance" and Juicy Beauty has a rather waxy feeling after application. Maybe I am just too "picky". Thank goodness for MyChelle.
