I recently discovered I am not only gluten intolerant, but also dairy as well. The dairy seems to have played a huge role in my acne problem. I'm much clearer than I have ever been and I'd like to keep it that way. I'm looking for a drugstore primer that is free of gluten as to keep from swelling and maybe ultimately reduce inflammation. Any help would be much appreciated, I've tried to research and contact reps, but no one seems to have an answer.

Primer? Is that foundation? I use a mineral powder as my foundation. It is gluten-free. I think most are as they contain very few ingredients. I use Cerave face lotion (made in the US ) with sunscreen as my base. It is gluten free. A green concealer helps cover red areas. My daughter uses that to cover blemishes.

Do you have celiac disease? Then you just have to make sure gluten is not swallowed. I never worry about mascara cause it never gets into my mouth. But if you have an allergy to wheat, everything should be wheat free that touches your skin.

This is one of my biggest frustrations too. People seem to think that "some" gluten all over our faces can't possibly find its way into the mouth and thus the stomach. I totally stopped using mascara! We still have to wash it off. That gets it all over the hands, a wash cloth or cleaning pad and then it really can make its way into the mouth pretty easily. The same is true with shampoo. It just makes no sense to me to take any chances. There can be damage without any symptoms. And why does beauty have to also include risking the serious symptoms of low iron, vit D deficiency and cancer?

 

Anyway, I use Bare Minerals. They are mostly just ground up minerals. Where I live, the stores in the mall are staffed by people who actually understand.

I'm still trying to figure out how anyone can "easily get make up in their mouth" from a washcloth or cleaning pad?  :blink:   Shampoo I could see if you stand in the shower with your mouth open and let the shampoo run down your face when rinsing but make-up is totally different.

 

If you use good make-up, it is highly doubtful you will ever find an ingredient connected with gluten in it.  I have been doing this for 10 years and wear foundation, mascara and eye liner and have never become sick from make-up.  My antibodies always come back in the fantastic range and I am healed, which would not be possible if I were ingesting gluten filled make-up.  People can do what they want to feel comfortable but no one should fear wearing make-up, thinking it will gluten them.  Of course, topical allergies are a different animal but as far as Celiac is concerned, mascara will not gluten you and I am pretty confident that you will not risk cancer from using it.

I continued to use my Too Faced primer today, I will see if it has any effect over the next few days. I recently picked up makeup from a homemade company on Easy called InYourFaceMakeup. She offers samples and after playing around with it, I'm in love! I also figured out that the Organics Mascara from Physician's Formula doesn't give me any problems.

 

When I have gluten in my makeup, my eyes swell shut, my acne gets worse and my jawline swells. Very similar to when I ingest it minus the stomach problems, migraines, and fatigue.

You seem to be suggesting that you are NOT getting glutened from ingesting the make-up but rather having a skin reaction to the make-up.  Most likely you are reacting to an ingredient in the make-up that is not even connected to gluten.

 

Good Luck.

Hi Sunny.  You may experience reactions, and take further precautions that are not the same as someone with classic celiac disease.  Many like minded members discuss these issues in the Super Sensitive Forum where others may have experiences closer to your own and may take further precautions to protect themselves from gluten than is typically necessary for most celiacs.  

 

I don't think anyone is dis-crediting your experiences.  It may just not be typical for the majority of celiacs.  I think you will find that most members take precautions with shampoos and lip products as it can easily get into the mouth.  I don't think I've ever heard of an issue with taking mascara off and getting glutened from it but, or course, anything is possible.  Some members may agree completely with your opinions and some may completely disagree.  That is the nature of discussion.

I believe that most of the Physicians Formula products are gluten-free. The website is very good - check it out. Also - if you have a questions and email them they are usually good about answering.  Neutrogena is another company who offers a wide range of products and are usually very helpful when contacting them.  Some other companies to try are: Pacifica, Tarte, Gabrielle Cosmetics, 100 Percent Pure (the mascara is NOT gluten-free), Lorem ( they just sent me a coupon code for 40% off use the word President) and Ecco Bella, Red Apple Lipstick, and Juice Beauty. Good luck.
