App-solutely Fabulous: 3 Apps to Support Your Health and Beauty

3 Apps to Support Your Health and Beauty -- Kathie Madonna Swift

What we put in our bodies is just as important as what we put on them. Toxins, allergens and irritants, be they subtle or severe, come in many forms, so it’s often best to steer clear. These three apps are great for those who are looking to avoid gluten, sugar and chemicals – any of which can be the root cause of health-eroding diseases, allergies and sensitivities:

CeliacTravel.com’s Gluten Free Restaurant Cards

Traveling overseas this summer? This app enables those who are managing celiac disease or gluten intolerance to dine out safely and easily in the US and overseas. The app is available in 54 languages and features more than 40 card images to help diner and server communicate clearly.

Sugar Cube

So what does the 26 grams of sugar in a can of Coke really look like? Sugar Cube shows you with images that illustrate and translate an abstract number of sugar grams into the easily visualized, everyday unit of a sugar cube. Perfect for those who love sugar just a little too much and need a little graphic inspiration to help them taper off.

EWG Skin Deep Cosmetic Database

Cosmetics are a chemical quagmire, but truth be told, we all use them. This brilliant app from the Environmental Working Group is a fantastic tool to help you select the cleanest skin and cosmetics products possible. While you may not be able to eliminate all chemicals from your life, this app enables you to shop the aisles armed with the wisdom you need to make informed choices.
