Gluten Free Your Year with Coral – May Challenge
Welcome to month FIVE of the Gluten Free Your Year challenge! I’m so glad you’re here! You can find an overview of the challenge HERE
This month’s theme is “Gluten Free Your Bathroom.” Did you know your makeup, shampoo, lotion, and cleaning products can all have gluten in them? It’s true!
This month’s challenge is all about identifying gluten in these types of products, learning how gluten in these products can impact, finding gluten free product swaps, and creating a gluten free space in your bathroom. Part spring cleaning, part gluten challenge, together we are going to overhaul those bathroom cupboards and drawers and make our space gluten free!
You can also listen to my Gluten Free You & Me Podcast on this topic here:
Do all of my beauty products really need to be gluten free?You have some that say an absolute yes– your skin is your largest organ and it absorbs everything you put on it and some say no– that it doesn’t matter as long as it is not ingested orally. Well what do we do with that split of opinions??? Well, just like with anything I speak about… you get to do YOU! There are three of us in our family who have Celiac disease and each of us react and respond different- we get to adapt just like you do! You get to decide how this answer looks to you.
- Determine what is working now for you and what is safe.
- Find brands that you feel comfortable with.
- Be loyal to those brands.
1. Determine what is working now for you and is safe
2. Find brands that you feel comfortable with
**I love to follow my good friend Karalynne on IG as she shares the better and best brands out there. She even has incredible products that I personally have all of them because I am obsessed. Her body scrub, deoderant, serum etc… You can find her on Instagram @just.ingredients or visit her website: https://justingredientswithkaralynne.com
We also have a page devoted to skin and makeup products on our Gluten Free Guide that you can buy here for $6.99
3. Be loyal to those brands.
I have now become a very loyal customer to several brands.why, because when I find some thing that is safe and it works- well heck yes I am going to be obsessed and loyal! This actually saves you money- hear me out… if you are not persuaded at every store to buy the latest trends of products you will save a lot of money. It will help with impulse shopping. It will help with using better cleaner products with ingredients that you feel good about and this is not just with gluten free but with living a healthier life.
I am so excited for you to go through your bathroom and see how you can improve the products that are underneath your cabinet. Our goal is to live the best gluten free life we can- and remember that is not all just about being and using 100% gluten free products- its about being aware of your overall health and mental health!
