Also, many of my patients spend good money having the Food Allergy Testing done and if they come back positive for Gluten Sensitivity or Gluten Intolerance, then makeup and skincare becomes a HUGE issue for them. Most people do not think about skin care when they here the words "gluten."
If you test positive for gluten you must wear makeup and use skincare that is gluten free. This is especially critical in the eye area with the use of mascara, eyeliners and eye shadows full of gluten. If gluten is a problem for you and you test positive for reacting to it then it will also will be a problem for your skin, eyelashes, elasticity and collagen.
Chemicals on the skin get absorbed directly into the blood stream without the filtering of the liver cleansing it out. If cancer isn't bad enough we now know that cosmetic chemicals are linked to allergies and neurological disorders.
As a society we must re-evaluate our shampoos, conditioners, body wash, toothpaste, makeup, moisturizers, nail polish, eyelash glues, hair color, sunscreen and a host of other products applied to the skin.
