Gluten Free Skin Care

You've heard me talk about Lovely Lady skin, hair, and body care products in the past. They're one of my favorite companies, and I've used most of their products myself (as well as given them as gifts). I like them because they're all natural, organic, and gluten-free (the owner, Cheryl Caspi, developed the line because she herself has Celiac). They are also free of all sorts of terrible chemicals that are good to avoid (parabens, sulfates, phthalates, petroleum, artificial preservatives, dyes, and synthetic fragrances!). Now that's what I want to put on my skin! You can read more about the company and their philosophy here. And the premium quality ingredients in their formulas -- like pure, undiluted essential oils -- really perform! If you are fighting aging skin (unfortunately, that realistically means anyone age 30+), you'll love the results you get from the Lovely Lady products. I especially like their Everlasting Skin Toner and Everlasting-Argan Immortelle Facial Nutrient (which can also be used as a lip balm, cuticle salve, and eye cream). Both smell heavenly and are full of benefit-loaded ingredients that target sensitivity, dryness, and aging keep it looking beautiful. Skin gets extra-stressed as the humid days of... Read more →

As you know, I've been trying to get the word out about the growing number of gluten free skin care lines. I just wanted to share a quick post today about one I've personally tried -- a wonderful skin care line that's free of gluten...and that I'm currently using (the company has a line of high-quality gluten free vitamin supplements, too, so read on). In the past 15+ years, I really started scrutinizing the skin care products I used. Good products can be expensive, and I wanted to make sure I was getting the most for my money. Just as I've always been very vigilant reading labels to find out what is in the foods I buy, I've also become more interested in what ingredients are in the personal care products I use. I've become aware of some of the harmful chemicals allowed in skin care, hair care, and cosmetics in this country -- ingredients that are not even allowed in Europe and other parts of the world. That's why I was excited to try Arbonne's skin care products. I'd heard a lot about them over the years from neighbors and friends. But it wasn't until recently that I decided... Read more →

About nine months ago, I first had the opportunity to try many of Lovely Lady Products line of gluten free skin and hair care products. I'll admit I have a weak spot for high-quality, natural skin care products, so I was hooked. These plant-based products smell heavenly, and I was impressed with the results I noticed in my skin's appearance and texture. Now Lovely Lady is offering a 10% savings on all their products to friends of GlutenFreeTravelSite and the Gluten Free Travel Blog, so you can try some of these incredible products for yourself (more on that in a minute...). What makes Lovely Lady so unique and effective? It starts with what they DON'T use in their products... The company was founded by Cheryl Caspi, a former model diagnosed with Celiac Disease. So naturally, the products don't contain any gluten. Cheryl believes that the purity of what we put on our bodies is as important as what we put in our bodies, so all ingredients are organic. None of the formulations contain any GMOs, dyes, synthetic perfumes or fragrances, colors, phthalates, parabens, sulfates, petroleum, artificial preservatives, propylene glycol, or sodium laureth sulfate. Another thing you won't find in Lovely... Read more →

Have you ever heard of Lovely Lady skin care and hair care products? Neither had I -- until recently -- when the company sent me some products samples to try. I have to say...I was intrigued. As with many innovations, this was a product line born out of necessity. The Founder of the company suffered for many years from skin and hair problems that were later attributed to Celiac Disease, so she was determined to develop a line of effective gluten free products. In addition to being gluten free, Lovely Lady hair care and skin care products contain NO water. What's so great about that, you wonder? I, too, found myself thinking...isn't water good for our skin? Well, yes and no. The problem is, many products on the market today are diluted with too much water (sometimes up to 70% of the formula). Not only are you not getting less of the beneficial ingredients, but you're paying for a "weaker" and less effective product! What's more, when a product contains water, a preservative needs to be added to prevent mold. The core ingredients in Lovely Lady skin and hair care products are natural, plant-based ingredients you may have heard about... Read more →
