Pop Sugar published an article today called "Please Stop Asking For Organic and Gluten-Free Makeup." The link is below. The author claims that people with Celiac do not need gluten-free makeup unless, in her words, "you intend to drink your foundation." What do you think of articles like this?

The fact that many people would unconsciously touch their face through out the day is a concern. Also some with DH, hyper senstive, or allergic would have skin reactions. Gluten in a foundation, or any kind of makeup/shampoo would be a nightmare in the amount of daily CC you would have,

I say piece of mind is priceless.  Why worry?  My foundation (a mineral) is gluten free as is my lipstick,  sunscreen and hand lotion.   I honestly know that I would have to injest a lot of lipstick ? in order to get a gluten reaction (per GlutenFreeWatchDog, Trish Thompson).  But I would rather not worry.  I am willing to PAY extra for it.   If a product line does not offer gluten free items, then  I will not buy it.  They lose my business.   Too bad, those companies are losing market share as there are so many people on the gluten free craze bandwagon (lucky for us who seriously have issues with gluten!)

So, I am going to plug Red Apple lipstick and Gabriel Lipsticks.  They are certified gluten free.  Piece of mind.  But if you can read the small print in the drugstore without special magnifying glasses (like I need), then buy the other lipstick.  I used to buy some Maybelline (I think), but now I can not read the label and pride prohibits me from pulling out a large magnifying glass in the store (and dang...I am old and save my phone data for my teenage kid so I will not check the website or call while in the store).  And yes, I pick up the house line without bothering to screen the call and I am still alive!

Let me add that this is a "want-be-journalist" who is trying to make a living.  (Kudos for her!).  You will note that she is selling you a few products.  Is it because she genuinely thinks they are the best products on the earth or she's getting compensated?  

Want to improve your dry skin?  Get off the low fat craze and eat some good healthy fats and live in a humid climate (that is my non-medical opinion).  Maybe take fewer showers......?

Hey, I am not knocking the author, Nicole.  My neighbor, a stay-at-home mom, makes a comfortable living submitting articles for online publishing.  She is not an expert in anything per sa y,  but it allows her to work between toddlers napping while she hangs in her PJ's.   She also gets a lot of free products to try.
