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

    • I will just stick with christopherbean company, the fact the main sales rep I talk to has celiac in the family means a lot, she said they use it all the time. I tested some of the iffiest flavored version grounds for gluten all negative. NOT had any issues drinking all kinds of coffee from their company in the past few months. FACT the flavored ones actually taste like what they say and just need a bit of sweetener is making me a coffee addict again lol. Clearing a pot a day so far and looking forward to each day wondering what flavor I should do >.> today was banana foster coffee, its 7 am and i already am on my third cup. If your still in doubt just buy their beans and grind your self.  I am grateful for the guy that started this thread as he ended up motivating me to start my campaign to find a gluten-free flavored coffee, where I ended up emailing several companies, I still saved 2 of the replies from companies saying DO NOT drink our coffee if you have celiac. Sorta funny how that brought up the issue and proved some points about gluten in the coffee industry.
    • Ch88 yes im  glad i had the blood test but it was found by accident so bit of a shock when i found out. God knows how long i had it but i always remember as a child suffering from stomach pain alot but back in the eighties it was unheard off!  But if you or any other membets can offer advice on what happens after the biopsy it would be much appreciated.
    • Most of the articles you presented were blogs.  They focused in one article pushed by the American Chemical Society.  The research looked at ground coffee in Brazil ONLY.   https://www.acs.org/content/acs/en/pressroom/newsreleases/2014/august/keeping-filler-ingredients-out-of-your-cup-of-coffee.html We know that Brazil is a very poor country.  Just look at what happened during the last Olympics.   For piece of mind, do not drink ground coffee brands from Brazil.  Instead, grind your own beans or purchase grounds from a reputable company.    
    • Okay, a positive on thyroid antibodies,  but what about the rest of the thyroid panel?  That tells more of the story.   Is  rest of the thyroid panel all in the normal ranges?  Is that why you were recommended to take a supplement instead of actual thyroid hormone replacement?  Many doctors try a tiny dose of thyroid hormone replacement.  Was this considered?   Symptoms besides gray hair?   You can either embrace the gray hair or color it.  My research and personal experience has never come across a method of reversing grey hair.  My SIL grayed  at 18.  She has been coloring her hair black for decades and her thyroid is normal.
