My Story

Soon after turning 20 years old I began to experience painful hormonal acne, skin inflammation and itchy dry patches around my eyes. Eventually a dermatologist diagnosed me with seborrheic dermatitis and confirmed my adult hormonal acne was concerning enough to treat. For over a year I used topical prescriptions, such as steroids and antibiotics. Although current acne would clear up, I would still receive new breakouts every month around the time of my menstrual cycle. Not only that, but the steroid cream made my eyebrows noticeably shed and flare ups would reoccur if I stopped using it. Anxious and overwhelmed, I knew I had to do dive deeper into why this was happening. This is where the real story begins.

With time and effort I was finally able to make the connection between internal and external skin health. I implemented a new lifestyle that included clean eating, optimal skincare ingredients and holistic wellness. Although it took some time to adjust, after a few months my skin’s appearance had dramatically improved. Most importantly, I enhanced my entire quality of life.

Fast forward to today and I am an experienced Licensed Esthetician and Certified Health Coach. Accepting my skin and optimizing my health has inspired me to help others who are facing similar problems.
