Help! I was using Hawaian Tropic Island Glow, but found out it has some questionable ingredients due to the fact that I got real itchy afterwards...and felt pretty bad the last two days. Can anyone guide me to a good one? I cannot get a lot of sun, but I dont want to look pasty white. Thank you!

I use the neutrogena self tanner and bronzer. I found that if I used it more than once a day I was getting itchy. But I think it was causing dry skin. After about an hour I would use moisturezer on my legs and I didn't have that itchy problem. As far as the ingredients go. I don't understand the chemical names to know if it has wheat or not.

as far as I know if you have DH the only way that you get a reaction is by ingesting gluten. If you come in contact with it you dont get a reaction. The only way to get a reaction is to have somthing non-gluten pass through you small intestine.

As far as self tanners they can be pretty harsh. You might have sensitive skin. It is a big mis conception about the lotion thing. You are obviously going to get a reaction to somthing if you skin is irritated prior to application. example: if you have a cut or scrap or somthing of the sort. Lotions that are high in purfume content tend to irritate my skin.

If you find that it is making your skin is getting a rash from this you might want to try a brand that is know to be used for sensitive skin. Like jergens or somthing like that.

I have one that seems to work very well I believe that it is the jergens but I will double check when I get home for you. I have sensitive skin and have to watch my lotions because they dry my skin out alot and it makes me itchy.

I will let you know.

Good luck

Does anyone know if it is absolutely safe for people with celiac to tan in a tanning bed if you use the stand up bed and not touch the acrylic? I miss my tan so much and I don't like using self tanners at all and I've been talking to the tanning salon about tanning in the stand up bed there and we feel that it probably would cause any problems but there's still that small percentage that it could still make me sick.

Thanks,

Sarah

    • What did you drink and where did you drink it?   NOTE if you drink something at a bar using their glasses your asking for trouble BEER IS EVERYWHERE in most bars and a CC hell.   If it was at home and a non grain based liqour then I would be really concerned that it might just be alcohol. I personally can not really drink much of anything any more. I love rum, and I cook with it sometimes in sautes. I also have rum extract/butter rum extract/and rum emulsion I use in shakes, homemade keto pudding/ mixed into dishes. and even add some to drink to give it a rum flavor lol.
    • I can only think of two things, 1 something you put on your potato was contaminated like the butter container could have crumbs in it or something like that as mentioned before, and you could be having a reaction to dairy or what ever was put in it.......IF it was just plain potato and you reacted with bloating and cramping you might have a carb issues, tad rare and most associated with additional auto immune diseases but could be in which case a diet of fats and protein would be your answer much like it is for me now days. What all have you eaten in the privous 8 hours including beverages, condiments, spices and foods?
    • They are gluten-free.  Did you use butter that might have gluten crumbs on it?  For me , it takes more than 2 hours to feel the effect of gluten- maybe something you ate before?  Maybe  stomach virus?
    • Has anyone had an reaction to potatoes? Just made couple bake potatoes 2hrs ago and now I feel awful...just wondering thought potatoes were gluten free🤷🏾‍♂️
    • I recently covered some pizzas when adding some grain free options to the gluten alternative list....I actually found a company that makes gluten-free hot pockets also sorta made me laugh. There are some unique ones out there now days even found one that made low carb crust out of chicken breast and cheese. https://www.celiac.com/gluten-free/topic/117090-gluten-free-food-alternatives-list/
