I have some problems with finding a make up that won't cause a rash on my face. What brands have worked well for you?

thanks

When I use makeup, I use Mary Kay. I do not use foundation, and I am very selective about what cleanser I use, as they use nuts, which I am allergic to. My Mary Kay dealer gave me a book listing all of the products and th ingredients, so I am able to make informed choices.

Some products in Clinque are gluten-free, but you might also want to try Almay. Clinque is allergy tested and I ran into the problem of Wheat being added to an ingredient in one of my favorite colors of lipstick when I went to go buy more the last time. Almay is supposed to be allergy free, I've started using their foundation with some of my other Clinque products.

Sorry, my brain isn't entirely working tonight, but I have a question I should have added when I pinned my last comment. I break out in a horrible rash from sun screen. I was just wondering if this could have something to do with having celiac disease or if my skin is just nutty and doesn't like sun screen or the sun. Does any one else have this problem?? Thanks. (And in case anyone is wondering, I use extra virgin olive oil, which works great for sun burns, and Zinc Oxide, aka Destin.)

It could be. I get rashes sometimes from gluten products.

I use Coppertone almost everyday.

I recently started using bare essentials mineral makeup. The commercials are totally cheesy, I know, but I got some as a gift for my birthday and I love it. They claim it has natural sunscreen in it, but I generally avoid the sun so I haven't put that to the test. I had DH on my face before going gluten-free and I've never had a reaction to this makeup.

I make my own lye soap and use it for everything including washing my hair. It doesn't dry out skin and hair the way commercial products do. The crap you buy in the store is detergent, not real soap. After switching to homemade soap, I don't need lotion for skin or conditioner for hair.

I use Bare Minerals and have had no problems. I have given up using anything for color on my lips though, everything with color makes them break out.

That sounds cool! Can you tell us how? :D

I have huge problems with chemical sunscreens on my face, I just can't use them, I break out in a huge red rash every single time, regardless of the brand, I can however use them on my body its above my shoulders that is really sensitive.

The only kind i can use on my face are physical blocks, zinc oxide and titanium oxide.. there are a few companies that make them with no chemical blocks... the only bad thing about physical blocks is the give your face a white sheen. Not quite like straight zinc oxide but slightly.

The one I'm using right now I love, I think I got it at Sephora... its DDF brand their Organic Sunblock spf 30. It doesn't make you too white, it works and I don't get the rash at all. Might be worth a try.

Benefit lipsticks are all gluten free (this is the company response to me a few weeks ago). Bare Escentuals--all gluten-free (I have some of their lipsticks now, very nice). MAC is not all gluten-free. I have ingredients for all their products and have been checking the past fews months, as I have a lot of their makeup. MAC lip conditioner has wheat germ oil in it, and one of their kinds of lipsticks also has a wheat product in it. I can look at my notes and let you know. I believe the majority of Stila lipsticks are gluten-free too, can't tell you exact types yet though. I am still waiting to hear from Clinique. Thanks!

:D

Not alot of Clinique is. The email response I got from them was not impressing. It was for a few brands including clinique. I had lipstick by them and called them and I could not get a simple yes or no...it was all well they might be gluten free. They sent me on a wild goose chase and gave me # after #..I was not impressed.

Love Bare Escentuals!

I use Lancome which is gluten free, but I still read the ingredients each time I buy anything new as you never know when they might change their formula. It is pricey though! I researched Estee Lauder and they give you a huge list with all these ingredients that can harbour gluten. They say to read their ingredients and compare it to the list. They own Bobbie Brown, MAC and Clinique and gave me the same list and answer for them. The list is good to have when you buy anything but takes forever to read and compare.

As for sunscreen, I use Banana Boat with no problems.

Hi all,

Just wondering, do you think foundation/base make-up with gluten in it could give you headaches? I get headaches every day and don't know why. I get a lot of pressure around my eyes and forehead. I could be dreaming this, but it seems worse ater I put make up on.

I don't know if my Clinique foundation is gluten free or not, I'm waiting to hear from them. Also, does anyone know anything about Gucci make up? I sure hope it's gluten free because it was wickedly expensive!!!

As far as I know, headaches are not an "official" symptom of celiac disease. But I do believe that gluten contributes to getting headaches because since going gluten-free mine have almost totally gone away. I used to get really bad ones a couple times a week. So, if the gluten in your makeup is getting into your system, I would think that it could affect this. I know that even though you don't eat your makeup it does constantly get on your hands and then into your mouth through food, etc. I don't know if the brands you asked about are gluten-free though.

    • Learn more about testing for celiac disease here: http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/screening/ You do have to be on a gluten diet for ANY of the celiac tests (blood and biopsy) to work.  While the endoscopy (with biopsies) can reveal villi damage, many other things besides celiac disease can cause villi damage too: http://www.cureceliacdisease.org/faq/what-else-can-cause-damage-to-the-small-intestine-other-than-celiac-disease/ So, both the blood test and endoscopy are usually ordered.  There are some exceptions, but those are not common.  
    • Exactly what are your allergy symptoms?  Were they IgG or IgE?  Allergy testing as a whole is not super accurate -- especially the IgG.  Were you on any H1 or H2 antihistamines for the last five days  when you were tested?   As far as celiac testing, four days without consuming gluten probably would not impact testing.  
    • I've been seeing my dr for a few weeks now about my stomach issues. We've ruled out the gallbladder and h-pylori and today I had the celiac blood tests done. From the reading I've done the past two days, it seems to me that it's highly likely that I have it. I've had digestive issues for years, but they've gotten progressively worse over the past 6 months or so. Pain and nausea when eating, bloat, eternal constipation, dh rash, at it's worse, tight cramp-like pain in a fist under my sternum, radiating through my back and around my right side keeping me up at night. Also heartburn/reflux and trouble swallowing, etc. 

      Anyway, about 2 months ago, I needed a change. I didn't go to the dr immediately because it seemed pointless. (I've mentioned stomach ache when eating to drs before and been blown off.) So, I started the Whole30 elimination diet (takes out soy, grains, dairy, peanuts, and leaves you basically eating meat & veggies). Figured it would show me what I needed to take out of my diet and hopefully feel better. It worked- I felt great! And it seems that grains and gluten are my biggest offenders. But, now I've been off gluten prior to celiac testing. It's been 7 weeks. After 4 weeks I tested steal cut oats, that I later found out were probably glutened. And then nothing until yesterday. Yesterday I had 2 pieces of bread and a muffin and today I had two pieces of bread and then the blood test. Is this going to be enough to show up on the tests? My dr said that it would probably show up, since I had some yesterday and today and was currently having symptoms. But, google seems to say that I should be glutened for 2 wks straight before testing. Has anyone tested positive after just a little gluten? If it's negative should I insist on doing it again after weeks back on gluten? I feel awful, but do want clear answers. Obviously, gluten's not going to be a part of my life any more either way. 
    • So just to clarify  had not consumed any gluten for about 4 days before testing. I was assured by my allergist that it wouldn't affect the test. But what was alarming was that she retested my food allergies (my most recent reaction was two weeks ago) and every food allergy I have came back negative. I don't understand how that is possible. These food allergies developed when I was 20 and I am almost 24 now.
    • Thanks! You too! I have learned from this experience to take charge of my own health. It's nice at least that we can try the gluten-free treatment without a firm diagnosis or a doctor confirming the disease. I've also felt some of the gluten withdrawal symptoms, and my stomach pain ebbs and flows, but I'm determined to stick with the gluten-free diet to see what a difference it makes. Gemini, thank you! This was really validating and useful for me to hear. I've felt so confused through this process and just want some answers. If the biopsy results do come back negative, I'm going to follow your advice and do the gluten-free diet with repeat blood testing after a while. If they come back positive, well, then I'll have my answer. I'm supposed to get them back next week.
