Eye On You

Gluten-free make up?

Is that really necessary?

I mean seriously… you’re not going to EAT your make-up – right?

But hold on a minute.  Your SKIN is your largest organ… 

and it absorbs what you put onto it… into your skin and then into your blood stream…

So it may not be ingested to cause damage to your intestine specifically… but what if it’s causing problems in another system of your body?

That’s why there is so much commotion about parabens being in hair products, and face products… that you put into your skin and on your mouth, because those parabens are showing up in cancer cells.

So yes.  Gluten-free make-up, to me, IS necessary.  Paraben-free is also increasingly important.

Not just for people who have the dermatitis herpetiformis (the itchy rash-type of celiac disease)…

If you’re gluten sensitive – then it’s probably not worth the risk of what it’s doing that you can’t see.

Personally I always had problems with soap, deodorant, and make-up.  My mom said I had, “special skin”…

If by “special” she meant super FAIR, and prone to reactions…. then yes.  I am pretty special.

It’s with FULL confidence that I tell you how much I love the new shadows from Red Apple Lipstick brand.  Known for their gluten-free line of lip products, they’ve now produced a fantastic line of eye shadows.  They work well wet or dry, and are a great quality shadow that stayed on BEYOND all day for me.  I was quite impressed!!  Love the colors I got too!

“Let us draw near with a true heart in full assurance of faith, with our hearts sprinkled clean from an evil conscience and our bodies washed with pure water.”

Hebrews 10:22
