WHAT IT IS: With fast-food chains such as Domino’s Pizza of­fer­ing gluten-free op­tions, it’s no won­der the same con­cept is trending at beauty coun­ters. While ex­perts may at­test to the safety of cos­met­ics con­tain­ing gluten, Amer­ica’s in­de­pen­dent Gluten Free So­ci­ety ad­vises in­di­vid­u­als di­ag­nosed with gluten-re­lated dis­eases to avoid in­gre­di­ents such as hy­drolised wheat pro­tein, avena sativa (oats), and triticum aes­tivum (wheat), par­tic­u­larly with lip prod­ucts, es­pe­cially for those who have se­vere al­ler­gies.

PRO TIP: Amer­i­can der­ma­tol­o­gist Dr. Gary Gold­faden ex­plains that gluten-based in­gre­di­ents in top­i­cal prod­ucts con­sist of the gliadin and glutenin pro­teins, which can lead to in­flam­ma­tion, acne, pso­ri­a­sis, puffy eyes, or rashes. Some prod­ucts may even con­tain ex­ter­nal traces of gluten, so it is al­ways best to do a patch test be­fore go­ing all out.

Stay­ing beau­ti­ful with a con­scious mind is a trend on the rise
