Blemishes And Breakouts

Recommended Posts

Hi to All,

Please let me know where to turn to concerning finding a product that is gluten free for cover-up facial blemishes/breakouts, that would be hypoallergenic and sensitive-free, as I have very sensitive skin, and need to take extra precautions in whatever I try to use.

This has been an on-going problem of late and it is not getting any better. I am post-menopause and I am not sure this is hormonal or maybe deficiencies in my body from the vitamin/minerals aspect.

Does anyone here have this problem (that might be connected to some deficiencies)? I have tried some different brands of vitamins, but I even have a intolerances of these on a daily basis. So any kind of help from you all would be great with something to atleast cover these areas up as this is an embrassing condition and my self-esteem is not the best anyway. I have tried the oral meds to help clear this up but again I cannot take these as well.

Thanks to all of you and your inputs forth-coming,

Susie

Go to the Gluten Free Foods, Products.....forum and look for the thread on Everyday Minerals. I haven't tried it yet but I put my order in last week. You can get a free sample pack and from what I've read, you can do that more than once. I have been having more trouble than usual with acne lately, and I believe it is being caused by sugar.....including fruit and rice. It is difficult to pinpoint it to a food intolerance because it takes a few days for new breakouts to occur, so at this point I can't be absolutely certain. Time will tell, I guess.

Hi Susie,

I'm post-menopausal, too. Since my hysterectomy, my skin has finally stopped breaking out as it used to do due to hormonal fluctuations. I get an occasional spot now only when I eat Lay's Stax chips. (not often--it's one of the only processed foods I eat)

I use the Everyday Minerals and love it. It doesn't contain bismuth--which is a common ingredient in mineral makeups and can cause breakouts and itchy skin.

It's great because you can get sample packs (not limited to one) to help you choose the right shades for you.

I use Dakota Free bar soap to wash my face (and in the shower)--it works as well or better than anything else I've tried.

Have you had your thyroid checked recently? Acne can be a sign of hypo.

Hi,

Yes, I have recently had it checked ( I have Graves disease and was treated with the RAI, a few years ago ), and nothing has been the same since then, as I am unable to tolerate the hormone replacement very well, which is maybe some of my problem with the breakouts and reactions. Do you have a thyroid problem as well?

Thank you for your input, which is quite right with the thought with the thyroid and problems with the skin. Wish the doctors would have put that together with my dx and how late it was in coming.

Best to you,

Susie

Hi Patti,

Thanks for your thoughts and support. You know it is pretty hard to take some days with these breakouts and our age factor, thought that was well behind me.

I do thank you all for the suggestions with the Everyday Minerals, I want to try this product, but I have not been able to get a hold of anyone by phone the last two days I have tried, and I have left a message to please call me, with no avail. I will try tomorrow again, did you reach them and order by phone? I will also look into the Dakota Free bar soap, thanks.

Best to you Patti,

Susie

Hi Lisa,

Thank you so much for this great sounding product(s). I have been trying to reach them, by phone, but have not had any success. Is this the best way to reach them? Did you order on line? I was hoping to actually speak to someone, to get more of an idea of what they are all about. I agree with your thoughts about the food relationship, this could be something to think about more, but I don't do alot of sugar, and try to eat whole foods every day, but that doesn't mean I don't have intolerances that could trigger these breakouts. I do though seem to notice the sun as a big factor and my reations with the time of exposure and breakouts. Ugh! and Ouch!

Thanks again for the Everyday Minerals,

Best to you,

Susie

I ordered on line. Check out their web site and then see if you have any questions that weren't answered there. I don't do a lot of sugar either, no desserts at all, but I know I get it in things like store-bought spaghetti sauce. Before going gluten free, caffeine definitely made me break out and probably still would.

Susie,

I always ordered on-line. I did find them impossible to reach by phone--I tried calling them to ask a question and no one ever got back to me. I will say that I never had a problem ordering from them on-line, the orders were processed right away and sent right out.

The reason I called was to ask if they offered a gift certificate, which I see they now do on the new site.

Take care :)

I recommend Everyday Minerals as well. :D

Also, I don't know if this will help anybody, but my skin pretty much completely cleared up when I moved from the US to Europe. :huh: I break out right away though (cystic acne that leaves scars) whenever my mom sends me a box with some gluten-free goodies from home.

So...I dunno. I thought I ate a whole foods diet back home but here I really eat a whole foods diet, because I can't read the labels on the packaged food LOL, and it's definitely helped my skin in dramatic ways (knock on wood lol). If I'm ever able to pinpoint an exact ingredient I'll let everybody know.

Oh, and my acne is related to hormonal issues as well, but I think it all also relates to food. :)

Good luck and let us know how you like the EM if you try it. :)

Hi Susie, yes I do have thyroid problems. I have Hashimoto's and before I was diagnosed my TSH was 3.8 and I was breaking out horribly. It took 5 years to find a Dr who understood that I had thyroid problems and make the connection. grrr... My skin completely cleared within a few days of starting Armour and I only break out now when I get exposed to gluten and even then it's nothing like it used to be before I started Armour.
