Dr. Aukerman provided a list of ingredients that could indicate wheat or gluten:

cyclodetextrin

barley extract

fermented grain extract

oat (avena sativa)

anything with wheat in the name

He recommends: Smashbox, Sephora, Avon, Neotrogena, Afterglow Cosmetics, Bare Minerals and Naturally Dah-Ling

Many of you ask me about different brands or suggestions. My only and best advice in this area is to contact the manufacturer directly and ask about their products. If you are totally gluten free and still having problems, it might be a reaction from hidden gluten somewhere else in your life!

Pretty Little Celiac Beauty – ACURE Organics Review

img_33402

It’s official! I’m completely addicted to ACURE Organics products. I just keep telling myself I only need one product at a time.

After I read an article in July about products containing gluten, I’ve been more conscious about what I’m putting in and ON my body. I stumbled upon this shampoo and conditioner at Earth Fare and decided to give it a try. I am a self admitted shampoo snob so spending $10/bottle wasn’t much for me but I realize it can be a little steep. Totally Worth It!

My hair feels just as good as it did using $20/bottle Pureology shampoo and conditioner. I know it’s gluten free and I trust it’s not making me sick. Score!

Here is what their website says about the shampoo and conditioner:

For Normal to Dry/Damaged/Curly Hair

Provides lasting moisture to even the most dry and damaged hair leaving it soft, manageable and ready to rock. Organic Argan Oil + Argan Stem Cells, CoQ10, and Organic Sea Buckthorn Oil–high in Omega 7, make up our patent-pending Triple Moisture System. Pumpkin Seed Oil –high in Omega 3 and 6 fatty acids, adds shine. Hair repair with serious flair. Safe for color treated hair.

Next Up! I found a coupon at Earth Fare for their lotions – so I figured – why not?

Another favorite of mine! The ACURE lavender & echinacea stem cell calming body lotion!

Non-greasy. Great smelling. Soaks in the skin perfectly and it’s gluten free. You can’t beat it!

I don’t know about you- but when I have gluten or aren’t eating properly,  my skin gets SO dry. Especially from the Hashimoto’s Hypothyroid problems, sometimes I feel like a snake shedding my skin. For those of you suffering from Celiac Dermatitis, this might be a great product line for you to help calm your skin.

Here is what ACURE says about this product on their website:

It’s been a long day. Luckily this calming lotion is here to help you decompress. Super moisturization plus the calming effects of lavender and lotus flower you say? If we hadn’t made it, we’d be thanking the people that did. With nourishing Omega 3 fatty acids from organic pumpkin seed and argan oil!

ACURE Day Cream

My new addiction. I usually use Neutrogena face lotion with SPF 15 on a daily basis but it really can make my skin feel oily. I typically suffer from dry skin, so it is odd going to something that makes my face oily. The ACURE day cream goes on so smooth, non greasy and makes my face feel like a baby’s bottom. I love it.

The only thing I wish with this product is that it had sunscreen to protect my face from the UV rays of the sun. Because my skin is so fair and freckled, I really try to make sure I’m wearing sunscreen to protect it, especially as I’m getting older.

ACURE’s website says this about the day cream:

Face the day with Gotu Kola Stem Cells, shown to firm and help your skin fight environmental damage and free radicals, and 1% Chlorella Growth Factor, shown to support collagen and elastin fibers. This powerhouse combo helps fight off the signs of aging with a one-two punch. Easily Absorbed Moisture + Cell Renewal = Great Day!
