Time to switch your beauty routine

With the changing of the clocks there is one more thing that needs to be changed.  Your beauty routine is no longer going to work as well in the coming months.  It is time to add extra moisture to your face, nails, body and hair.  The down side of this is that it is not always easy to find Gluten free products.  Now is the time of year to deep clean or replace all makeup brushes, throw out old mascaras, go through and get rid of expired makeup and alter the way you take care of yourself.

Winter brings around cold and dry conditions that can suck the moisture out of you both inside and out.  The easiest thing to winterize is your diet.   Start including more oils and water in what you eat and drink.  You need to consume just a little more on the oils and at least one more glass of water a day.  The hard thing to do is find products to help winterize the outside.  I have a few suggestions for you of gluten free products that might help you get started.  

Face moisturizers:
  • Burt's Bees Radiance Day Cream: A lightweight moisturizer that is very nourishing.  This is great for people with dry skin and perfect for winter.
  • Burt's Bees Naturally Ageless Day Cream: This contains the same ingredients as the radiance but it also contains much more since it is an anti-age cream.  The whole line of the naturally ageless is gluten free.
  • Burt's Bees Moisturizing Day Crème: This is a normal everyday gluten free moisturizer that works well with everything.  Please note if you have a nut allergy this cream is not for you.
  • Dakota Free Baby Your Skin Balm: Started with Babies in mind, it is now used by many age groups it is a rich multipurpose cream that is best used as a night cream.  This cream contains no gluten, latex, fragrance and is lauded as vegetarian.
  • Keys Luminos Facial Moisturizing Therapy: This is a strongly hydrating moisturizer that has a good concentration of anti-aging ingredients.  This is gluten free, chemical free and also compleatly vegan.
  • Keys Solar Rx Broad Spectrum Sunblock: A sunscreen as well as a facial moisturizer.  This contains most of the same ingredients as the luminos but includes the sun protection.
  • Neutrogena's Healthy Defense Daily Moisturizer SPF 30: This extremely hypoallergenic cream is great for those with oily skin.
