Following a gluten-free diet has become slightly easier over the years: companies are more conscientious of labeling and ingredients. When it comes to skin care, though, knowing which products are gluten-free can be a mystery. For the majority of those with celiac disease or gluten-intolerances, gluten is only a problem if it’s ingested. Considering a woman consumes 4-7 pounds of lipstick throughout their lifetime (ever notice how often you lick your lips?!), choosing gluten-free skin care is a safer choice.
Incredibly, some of our favorite skin care items happen to be gluten-free as well!
