In Topic: Cosmetics! Help!

19 February 2015 - 07:42 PM

I've used the MAC pre and prime. I use it on my eyes and it comes in a small little round tube. It's small but lasts forever. I can't remember if it had vit e but it seems safe for me to use. No issues with it.

In Topic: Glutened By My Lipstick

19 February 2015 - 07:38 PM

Vit E most definitely can contain gluten (when sourced from wheat). I am allergic to wheat and recently used a lipstick with Vit E. I was sick for 2 weeks. I had made no other changes to my routine or meals. If you feel sick, avoid it. It is not worth being sick over and don't listen to others who tell you it's safe. Everyone is different and can handle things at a different level. If your food hasn't changed then it must be lipstick. I have to be extra careful because ingesting will cause stomach problems for me. If it's on my skin I will break out in hives and other issues but not have stomach pains bad as if ingested.

I can read labels but Vit E is always an issue. A lot of people have contacted the companies to ask and you can find these company replies on the internet :)

Btw don't use Revlon lipsticks :)

In Topic: Curry Powder

I use the Ayam curry powder :) It is an Asian brand so it would be in the Asian section. It's not labelled gluten free but I read the ingredients and have been eating it for 2 years now :) Ayam does gluten free products too!

In Topic: Fixing My Vitamin D Levels

17 February 2015 - 04:21 AM

My Vit D levels were super low a few years back too. I took a pill everyday for 2 weeks and when tested it barely moved up! I was advised to take 2 pills a day and it improved but not much.

I have tried liquid vitamins recently as they are easier to absorb :) Especially for our weaker tummies. I take lots of multivitamins now and then (women's multivitamins) and found i feel so much healthier when im taking them (and not glutened). Give them a go :) Vit D takes time, just stay focused on it :)

I think this just means you're very careful. I have dreams where sometimes someone will offer me a donut or i will eat something my mother made for the family like i use to. And once i bite into it, i start screaming at myself, saying this has wheat and i know it so why did i eat it! lol and i would be spitting it out. And it's silly because when i'm awake i know i will definitely not make that kind of mistake in real life. I am very careful and i think it's good we are since it's our health we are risking!
