Department-store Quality Skincare?

6 posts in this topic

We just moved into our new house and my goodness but the lighting in the bathroom is much better here. I tried covering with makeup, but it just showed how bad my skin has gotten. Not blotchy or blemishy, but I've never really taken good care of it and it's starting to show.

I'm just wondering what everyone else here uses for skincare. I'm thinking about higher-quality skincare. Doesn't necessarily need to be from a department store. I've got a friend who sells Lame Advertisement, which I still haven't tried, but it's supposed to be gluten-free. I've also been seeing those Meaningful Beauty (Cindy Crawford) infomercials. Dermacia (Rachel Hunter) is intriguing too. But I haven't checked on the gluten-free status of them yet.

I've been thinking about getting a facial too. Does anyone know what line of skincare is gluten-free in places like that?

Thoughts?

Nancy

As far as the facial is concerned - I found a great place. It is called Salon Professional Academy. They are students but you can make sure that you get a student who is almost done with training. Some students are definitely better than others so when I find one I like I stick with them. You get a full facial for $21! They use Repechage products, all of which they have used on me are gluten-free. I have been using those products at home as well and I like them. They look at your skin under a magnifying glass and tell you which products you should use - you obviously don't have to get all of them. They have locations around the country and some in very rural places, so hopefully there is one close by.

I also like Origins. You would have to check on the gluten-free status of their stuff because I am only using their drink up moisturizing mask right now.

I use a glycerin bar from a health food store and some moisturizers from there, too. I like ones with DMAE, alpha lipoic acid, etc. (the Perricone recommendation -- anti-aging ;) ). I also use a mask with alpha hydroxy acids to smooth out my skin, but don't use them all the time.

I like this lady's attitude about beauty, but check the ingredients before you buy the products. http://informedbeauty.com/index.html

Estee Lauder will send you a list of their ingredients that contain gluten, then all you have to do is read the ingredients when you purchase a product. I use their Equalizer foundation. I sold Estee Lauder years ago, and found I like the products I'm using from the health food store, which are generally cheaper (though not cheap), just as well.

I highly recommend MyChelle products. I find them much better than department store products. Plus, they are all natural and free of harmful preservatives and toxins. I have horrible skin and this stuff works really well for me. You can get it at health food stores. They say all of their products are gluten-free. They sell a good sample kit for not too much $$ if you want to try it all out first.

L'uvalla Certified Organic has high end quality French skincare. Most of the products are Gluten Free. I think the only products that are not gluten-free are the age-defying cream and the eye cream. I use the hydrating milk cleanser, the eucalyptus toner, and the balancing cream. Check them out, they are the same quality as the department store brands, but organic. The website is www.luvalla.com.

    • Following a gallbladder surgery, I could not get my digestive system back to normal.  After several months of constant diarrhea, I went to see the gastro dr. and told her my problems. I also mentioned that I had a sister, brother and nephew with Celiacs.  She said, "I'm almost sure that's the problem".  I, like you, did not want to go back to eating gluten so I did the gene test but it was not positive.  I learned it is not always an exact test.  It came back with Crohns which so far I have no symptoms.  The Endoscopy  indicated Hpylori, CDiff, and one other bacteria.  After I took all the meds to clear my body of these bacterias, I was still having  some symptons of diarrhea and found that I thought I was clear of all gluten but I had a long way to go. Throwing away a wooden cutting board my dad had given me, lipstick, lipgloss, makeup, handcream, plastics in the kitchen, pans that had a scratch, any item in the pantry that had any of the items with starch that may have gluten and the list goes on and on.  I'm still reading labels but I definately can tell a difference as I have eliminated more items that I had no idea were harmful.  This website has been a life-saver for me.  Thank You so much for your wealth of information.   Linda Fortson    
    • Just wanted to pipe in that my hair started going gray at 19. Started coloring it immediately and decades later, still doing it. I had the guts to go completely without coloring in my late 40's. i was fully gray by then, I used a wig during the hair regrowth period. Then one day I started again. And I'm a bit hypo myself but I have no idea if that had anything to do with it. My mom didn't start going gray till she was 50 but my dad started when he got polio at age 20. He was fully gray in his 40's. there's this one beautiful black woman on a tv show in the morning I watch sometimes with the disabled woman I assist, who has partially gray hair, and it is gorgeous on her. It's a cooking show that has several chefs on it but I have no clue as to what anyone's name is cause the sound is always low and we are doing other stuff!
    • Thank you! That was the thread I already found and am reading my way through.
    • Thanks for replying! I actually got a blood test for everything and it all came back normal. However, I was slightly anaemic which my doctor said should go back to normal in a few months. I guess I'll go back and get another or speak to the doctor if I am unsure. When I first went gluten free I was still very hungry and my gluten free food also didn't fill me up. I got the same dizzy spells and had to have snacks with me! However, now on the 4th month its gone the complete other way. Anyway, thank you for your feedback and help.
