We just moved into our new house and my goodness but the lighting in the bathroom is much better here. I tried covering with makeup, but it just showed how bad my skin has gotten. Not blotchy or blemishy, but I've never really taken good care of it and it's starting to show.

I'm just wondering what everyone else here uses for skincare. I'm thinking about higher-quality skincare. Doesn't necessarily need to be from a department store. I've got a friend who sells Lame Advertisement, which I still haven't tried, but it's supposed to be gluten-free. I've also been seeing those Meaningful Beauty (Cindy Crawford) infomercials. Dermacia (Rachel Hunter) is intriguing too. But I haven't checked on the gluten-free status of them yet.

I've been thinking about getting a facial too. Does anyone know what line of skincare is gluten-free in places like that?

As far as the facial is concerned - I found a great place. It is called Salon Professional Academy. They are students but you can make sure that you get a student who is almost done with training. Some students are definitely better than others so when I find one I like I stick with them. You get a full facial for $21! They use Repechage products, all of which they have used on me are gluten-free. I have been using those products at home as well and I like them. They look at your skin under a magnifying glass and tell you which products you should use - you obviously don't have to get all of them. They have locations around the country and some in very rural places, so hopefully there is one close by.

I also like Origins. You would have to check on the gluten-free status of their stuff because I am only using their drink up moisturizing mask right now.

I use a glycerin bar from a health food store and some moisturizers from there, too. I like ones with DMAE, alpha lipoic acid, etc. (the Perricone recommendation -- anti-aging ;) ). I also use a mask with alpha hydroxy acids to smooth out my skin, but don't use them all the time.

I like this lady's attitude about beauty, but check the ingredients before you buy the products. http://informedbeauty.com/index.html

Estee Lauder will send you a list of their ingredients that contain gluten, then all you have to do is read the ingredients when you purchase a product. I use their Equalizer foundation. I sold Estee Lauder years ago, and found I like the products I'm using from the health food store, which are generally cheaper (though not cheap), just as well.

I highly recommend MyChelle products. I find them much better than department store products. Plus, they are all natural and free of harmful preservatives and toxins. I have horrible skin and this stuff works really well for me. You can get it at health food stores. They say all of their products are gluten-free. They sell a good sample kit for not too much $$ if you want to try it all out first.

L'uvalla Certified Organic has high end quality French skincare. Most of the products are Gluten Free. I think the only products that are not gluten-free are the age-defying cream and the eye cream. I use the hydrating milk cleanser, the eucalyptus toner, and the balancing cream. Check them out, they are the same quality as the department store brands, but organic. The website is www.luvalla.com.
