Read me! Wheat-eaters who mock or give patronizing lectures to people like me are so weird. Insulting us is old news. Find something better to do with your time.
I had to use the on-camera audio because the audio from my mic was corrupted BUT VERONICA IS NOT BEING A PERFECTIONIST TODAY. #babysteps

Turns out I actually know the head of R&D at Drunk Elephant, and we’re chatting about this.
Q: What happens to me if I’m exposed to wheat?
A: For minimal contact (skin) exposure, I usually get a rash on my stomach and the body part exposed. If I eat it in any minute quantity, I experience intense flu-like symptoms within seconds, then develop a rash over my entire body for a few days. It’s not pretty. Now you can see why I’m so anxious about it.
Food ingredients in skin care products are a problem already. I spoke about this in the past, cases where proteins from food ingredients were absorbed through the skin and caused anaphylaxis upon later ingestion.

And to anyone saying “this is a personal problem”… Well, yeah. It’s my channel.

Hi, I’m Veronica! I haven’t made a new info box template yet, so I’ll just say here that I’ve been an esthetician for 15 freakin’ years now. That’s a long time!
