Hello world! As you probably noticed, I have been making a few changes here and there. In addition to a new layout, I'm also happy to announce that A Healthful Gluten-Free Life will now have a gluten-free beauty section. From gluten-free cosmetics to skincare to hair care... You name it! It's important for those with Celiac Disease and gluten intolerance to be aware of the hazards that can be caused by gluten in beauty products. I will go into more detail further on, so be sure to check back frequently! Believe it or not, there are many gluten-free companies that offer beauty products, and one of them is DeVine! Below is a guest post from Michelle Bucaro (Brand Manager DeVine Lip Shimmers):
We created DeVine with a health conscious consumer in mind, and we believe that living a gluten-free lifestyle doesn't mean giving up the thrill of a great lip shimmer.
DeVine Lip Shimmers are completely natural, gluten free, and made with all the finest ingredients. We have taken the benefits of wine and placed them into 5 different varieties of lip shimmers: Rosé, Merlot, Champagne, Bordeaux, and Vanilla Spritzer. Each luscious tube adds health, beauty, and incredible moisture to your lips. They provide a beautifully tinted shimmer that lasts longer than a standard lip balm.
Initially our main focus was on the ingredients. I asked myself the following questions: What supplements contain the best benefits for beauty and health? Which of these are easily absorbed into your body and provide instant results? What would I feel safe enough to use several times a day? We found the answer in Grapeseed Oil, Resveratrol and Red Wine Polyphenols.
Grape Seed Oil is easily absorbed into your lips and has the ability to lock in moisture on contact. Known to be slightly astringent, Grapeseed Oil easily penetrates the skin due to its thin consistency and is a wonderful carrier of other nutrients. There is nothing like the soft, silky feeling of Grapeseed Oil to truly nourish the lips. Resveratrol is a polyphenolic compound with anti-oxidant properties that is found in the skin of red wine grapes. Resveratrol’s anti-oxidant power helps your lips to fight against the cellular damage that leads to aging. Red Wine Polyphenols together with Resveratrol fights against free radicals with potent long term anti-aging benefits to naturally further your youthful look!
DeVine Lip Shimmers have naturally combined these ingredients to create what I believe to be a fabulous product that is healthy and good for you and your lips. More than just a great product, it’s also a great value! DeVine Lip Shimmers are available at www.devineshimmers.com and other various online retailers. We hope you will take a look - your lips will thank you!
