Gluten Free Acne Products?

11 posts in this topic

*Sigh* I've developed some semi-serious acne again, and my skin hasn't been this bad since going gluten-free. Currently, I use Clearsil Daily Face wash and Neutrogena's Rapid Clear acne gel, which are both gluten-free. Obviously, neither one are doing that much to help. Anyone use an acne wash/cream/medication that works well and is gluten-free?

Thanks for any help!

Clearasil Total Control and Clearasil vanishing cream work really well for me. Their daily face wash makes me break out.

Burts Bees has a blemish stick that also has worked well in the past for me

Thanks for your help! I looked on Clearasil's website and found the vanishing cream, but I can't find the Total Control products, only the original blue products and the new Ultra products. Are the Total Control products a face wash?

My daughter has used Proactiv - which is available online - all of their products are gluten free and work really well.

If you wind up going to the dermatologist for it, both Differin and Clindamycin gels are gluten-free.

So Proactive is gluten-free? I contacted them about it (about 3-4 months ago), and they said they couldn't guarantee it (but it may have been a CYA statement).

Thanks for all the tips, and thanks for the pointer on the Total Control. I hate having acne, and if it doesn't get better, I will head to the dermatologist, so thanks, Donna, for the heads up on the prescription gels. Stupid acne! I was basically blemish free as a teenager, and now that I'm heading into my late twenties, it's acne city, and now I have these awful scars, too. Arghh!!!

    • 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. 
    • Be sure to read "cyclinglady" post and link to an article from the University of Chicago Celiac Center....vitamin deficiency's prior to diagnoses....so helpful. 
    • Hi All - I was recently diagnosed with Hashimotos. My doctor said TPO AB 76 is above range. I initially went to the doctor because since graduating college 3 years ago I have gotten a significant number of gray hairs (25% of my hair I would say) and I just turned 25 and am an African American woman. She put me on OMP Thyrotain. Has anyone used this? She has also advised me to go gluten free. Has anyone seen any reversal in the grey hair? I don't consider myself a shallow person but at such a young age, without any family history of this, it's really impacting me negatively. Any advice or experiences would be so helpful.
    • You shave stumbled onto the biggest secret out there..........the gluten-free diet isn't as horrible as many would have you believe, including the medical profession. There is plenty of good food to eat and the biggest drawback is we have to prepare it ourselves the vast majority of times.  That's the worst part.    And like yourself, I have friends who have much more serious health issues and they do not have the control over theirs as we do over ours. There may be times when you will be faced with temptations you will have to turn away from but you will move on and survive.  Congratulations on having such a positive attitude!
