Last year I began using a skincare regimen of Anacya(for acne) and Finacea(for rapid skin cell regrowth to help with acne.) Both are gel Rx from my dermatologist. They've done wonders for my skin, and I consistently have very clear skin if I use both in conjuncture.
I found out that Finacea has azelaic acid as one of its primary ingredient, and it is not recommended for people with celiac disease because of this. I got this from a Finacea website:
"Dermatologists strongly prohibit people who have celiac disease or gluten sensitivity to not use or to avoid azelaic acid because it is a bonded dicarboxylic acid, comprising the proteins that are naturally found in wheat, barley and rye."
Has anyone else had any experience with following a paleo lifestyle, yet still using wheat as a topical? I'm really not sure if it would be THAT bad for you, since it's not going into the GI tract, stomach, etc.
