Which gluten-free Moisturizers Do You Use On Your Face?

I'm just wondering which gluten-free moisturizers everyone uses on their face. The skin on my face is way too dry. I live in Northern Alberta where the temperature can get below -30!

I use Dove moisturiser with spf. I am in Colorado and it is really dry here as well. I would say it does a fair job, not great. But I know it is safe. I sometimes will put it on twice before putting on make-up.

Thanks... Dove is safe, good to know. I'll look for Dove moisturizer when I go shopping.

My skin has been flaking in these dry and cold temperatures. George's Special Dry Hand Cream is good at night especially for hands and feet. But it's a little too thick for the face.

Carrie,

Go to Essential Day Spa dot com ( In Van, I think)...they have everything under the sun, but I liked the Decleor line Climatique when I lived in Wyoming...meant for sub zero temps and all botanical based...

Most regular moisturizers seem to irritate my skin (it's pretty sensitive). I use straight Jojoba oil on my skin... it's non-comedegenic, and works really well for dry skin.

Though I don't need a skin moisturizer, I do know that coconut oil makes about the best moisturizer I've ever come across. You can put it to the test without buying a whole jar though. CoconutOil-Online offers a sample that would certainly last plenty long enough to see how well it does. It only takes a drop or two. Not only does it moisturize, but it actually nourishes the skin and aids in healing, etc. It's the finest grade I'm aware of (meant for cooking and baking), but I suppose for the skin you could use one of the cheaper brands after the sample is used up. Many people report healthier skin just having the oil in their diet.

I also use straight Jojoba at night....skin is much softer the next day. but, I am using a retinol cream also, so at times my face is like an alligator, adn I MUST use a strong sunscreen every day. I LOVE Neutrogena Ultra Sheer dry-touch sunblock, I had researched it before buying, and it turns out it is the same one my new dermatologist recommends also.

I bought a Dove product, not sure if it is meant for the face, but it seems to work! Thanks for your suggestions.

I have another question... What brand of lip gloss do you use because mine obviously doesn't work very well. I find that my lips are almost always peeling and/or dry. My lip gloss leaves chunks of gloss all over my lips and I think it's mixed in with peeling skin. I'm sure it looks wonderful.

Thanks Tiffany! I'll look for those products. Can you find them in pharmacies or do you have to go to elsewhere.

depends on the pharmacy, it seems. I thought I had to get them at whole foods until I moved to seattle, and found that the bartell's across the street carried them. :o

Badger Balm is another great product for lips

www.badgerbalm.com

I find coconut oil is great as a moisterizer (and lip balm) as well.

Hopefully I will find some of these lip balms. I'll see if I can find them at a health food store I know about the next time I'm in the city. Thanks for all your help.

a good tip with the lip moisturizer is to use it before you need it - use it consistently for best results kind of thing. :)

Hi Carrie,

My favorite is Badger Balm. It comes in either a pot or a stick. Flavored or unflavored.

I get mine at Wegman's grocery store, but have also seen it at Whole Foods.

I called them a while back, and was told that they don't use gluten at all in their facility. The woman said that they had had so many inquiries about this that they checked with the chemist, and verified this.

They also have a body butter that I love. :)

Try using balm every night before bed--also you can apply Vaseline to your lips, and rub gently with a toothbrush--to exfoliate the dry skin on your lips. Do this very gently. Don't do it if you are prone to cold sores.

I'm glad it comes in a stick and that the chemists have verified that it is gluten-free! I may try Vaseline.

Origins has a moisturing mask called Drink Up. I leave it on for about 15 minutes and it is usually almost all absorbed. I use that frequently when my skin gets dry and it really helps. I use dove sensitive night cream during the day and at night because it is thicker than normal lotions.

Karite lip balm is excellent. My son's teenaged friend came over and was using chapstick (alcohol!) and had horrible chapped lips. I gave him a karite lip balm and by the next day, he had no signs of chapped lips. I found his chapstick in my trash!

I may also try the Dove night cream. I really like the Dove product I bought last week.

Chapstick is what I'm using! Ah! Maybe that's why my lips are always dry! I will also look for Karite. Hopefully I'll find one of the mentioned lip balms.

      I'm afraid to say I don't really think it is normal Richie, but I do recognise the shakiness and nausea you speak of, as I've been there. (Pre-diagnosis), my shakiness was so bad, my muscles were very weak and couldn't walk without the aid of a walking stick, my ferritin levels were so very, very low and had to take iron tablet every day for months. My hair was falling out, I had really bad digestional issues, amongst other things. I think you should lay off the coffee and the barley drink and all gluten/wheat, because until you do, your body is not going to repair itself properly. Damage is done to the gut even if you don't have gastrointestinal issues, as not all coeliacs have symptoms, but the damage is still being done to the gut, which in turn can cause osteoporosis, other auto-immune diseases and also cancer.  If you ever get a test for coeliac disease, you need to be eating gluten/wheat for at least 6 weeks on a daily basis in order for it to set of the immune response in your body, which will cause a positive result. (Blood tests are less reliable than endoscopy with biopsies - bare this in mind).  You may decide of course not to have a test for coeliacs because of how ill it could make you feel by eating gluten etc. In which case, you need to avoid all gluten and wheat forever! (By the way another symptom of coeliac disease is dairy/lactose intolerance- which could be causing your nausea). Sorry to be blunt, but you need to know the dangers and there's no point in sugar coating it. What is your fasting blood test for?

    • Newbie Mom - How is my son feeling?
      I know there has been a lot of suggestions to go and talk to you doctor already - so I am on repeat - to get the best / accurate results - gluten should be eaten prior to the scope being done.    I hope that you can get/ or already have been able to get the appointment bumped up  - keep calling the doctors office and keep pressing them to move your appointment closer - I have appointments move up many times!

      Hello! I am new to this Celiac website... Is there anyone out there with Celiac AND extensive food allergies? My allergies include shellfish, dairy, eggs, cantaloupe, kiwi, mango, nuts, oranges, red dye, and more I can't think of. I went to the allergist about a year ago to see why I wasn't feeling well, and once everything was eliminated, I still didn't feel well. We did more testing to find out I had celiac as well as allergies to cattle as well as rye grass (I live on a farm basically). This was back in January 2016. I recently had my endoscopy with the gastroenterologist a week ago. I have no idea what to do or what to eat... So fish and potatoes for me!

      Week 4 of the gluten challenge- wheat cereal every morning, regular bread every day, and wheat tortillas for my lunch wraps. Right now, body aches that seem exercise related (weight lifting and running), even though I am doing the same intensity of weight lifting and running I've always done.  Just a few more weeks until my blood test. Counting down the days.
