What's your favorite gluten free hand cream? I wash my hands 10-20 times during the day and need a good handcream, especially for the winter but even now in the summer, my hands are dry and rough. I prefer one that is not too oily once it is on.

I bought some after you suggested them ages ago. Nice! And even Wally World carries them.

I have a job that requires a lot of hand-washing (I'm a vet tech). I like Aquaphor for when my hands are really in a bad way, since it stays on even through repeated washings, but I personally prefer not to use petroleum-based products unless I really have to. The rest of the time, I use pure jojoba oil (the closest plant oil to human skin oils. Trader Joe's carries this) or pure shea butter (naturally anti-microbial. Organic Essence is a good brand). Both ae safe to use on lips as well as skin. You can also just use a dab of olive oil or coconut butter, too, in a pinch. If you get the pure oil/butter, you can be certain there are no gluten-containing additives, no potentially-irritating fragrances, and no fillers. Look for oils/butters preserved with rosemary extract rather than vitamin e/tocopherol/tocopherol acetate, as these anti-oxidants can be extracted from wheat germ oil.

Does your skin feel oily after using the jojoba oil or shea butter? How do you keep the palms of your hands from being to greasy? Do you just use this once or twice a day and not re-apply during the day?I appreciate everyone's help.

    • I had to elminate, carbs, and sugars also due to UC, but I haveen cooking for diabetics for years in my bakery. I do keto based breads, grain free baked goods, nut butters, etc. I have a few grain free low carb recipes in the cooking section like Keto low carb dinner rolls, flat bread, crackers, etc. My bakery also sales keto loaf breads that are a huge hit with my customers. Look at ketogenic/paleo diets. stews, meats, leafy greens creamy soups with nut milks etc. Crock pot and batch meals will be your new friend I imagine.
    • First, let me make this clear.  Your diet may have contributed to diabetes a bit, but the reality is you are either genetically predisposed or not.  That covers both Type 1 (TD1 — autoimmune) and Type 2 (TD2 — insulin resistance).   Has your doctor diagnosed you with TD1 or TD2?  TD1 is strongly linked to celiac disease.  It can be determined by measuring antibodies (e.g. GAD).  Like celiac disease, there are several antibody tests for TD1.  It can affect any age.   The body destroys beta cells that help produce insulin.  Insulin resistance (TD2)  is common as we age or eat a poor diet of simple carbohydrates (which is just about everyone in the US!) if you are predisposed.    It runs in families.  It can be treated by diet and if needed, medications and/or insulin.   I recall the same dismay.   I have TD2.  I have made dietary adjustments and have been able to ward off medications that could affect my gut.  You really can lose that sweet tooth!   Here is a link to Blood Sugar 101.  The author is NOT a doctor, but is good at investigating research.  It is a highly regarded website.  She sells a small book, but it contains exactly the same information.  I bought one for my Uncle who is not on the internet (imagine that!).  Learn about “eating to your meter”.  What affects one diabetic may not affect another in terms of elevating blood sugar.  Managing your blood sugar will help prevent all those diabetic complications.  Jenny’s Site also references some very well-respective books written my medical doctors who live with diabetes.  It is a good place to start.  Like this site, it helps me stick to my gluten-free and Lowere carb diet (you need to determine what works for you personally and I can not stress that enough). got to go......    
    •   Had to mention........this made me laugh out loud and how true it is! 
    • You do realize I am starting to drool all over my keyboard?    Your second sentence said it all.  It's been 12 years for me gluten-free so gluten free chewy is fine by me!
    • Bfree brand is in the US now and they are stocked at my local grocery store.  I have not seen the wraps yet but I am going to request that they stock them.  They have these dinner rolls that are actually a gluten-free sourdough roll and they are delicious!  Read the link and see what they use for sourdough starter......excellent! The rolls have chew to the crust and are soft and fluffy on the inside. I see they now make the brown, seeded rolls, which I like better than the white so the hunt is on!    Thanks for the advice.....I really miss burritos. One of the few times I have trouble with the Celiac thing is when I am in London and I can smell all that delicious street food being prepared.  It's downright torture.  As for the panettone.........they are really good.  I have never become ill from anything I have bought from Italy....they really know their gluten free stuff! https://us.bfreefoods.com/product/soft-white-rolls/
