I am a working wife and mom. I was diagnosed with Celiac Disease in November 2011 (I’m still making my way through this new world).
The diagnosis sent me on a search for gluten free and a lifestyle change. My search included not only food but lotions, soaps, shampoos and of course make up.
A lot of Celiac websites just addressed food and gluten, not these other items. I’ve always had an obsession with my lips not being soft and dry and I use a lot of lip balm. So I was really worried when I wasn’t finding information about gluten free lip balms (I’m not a big lipstick fan normally because most of it dried my lips out).
But I am fortunate because “Google” is my friend and it led me to Red Apple Lipstick. I’ve ordered 3 different lipsticks and the Rallye Balm.
My favorite color is Flirt With Me.
My makeup looks are more of a natural look so it works best for me (The old adage, less is more). So while I’m still trying to learn about my life (and it’s not just food) at least I know that my lips will be smooth and soft and have a great look to them.

Ambers story is one we hear a lot. A story of being newly diagnosed with Celiac disease and finding out that the majority of information available is directly related to gluten free food, but not so much with other lifestyle changes and/or words of encouragement.
As a newly diagnosed Celiac, what words of encouragement and advice would YOU offer Amber?
