Tiny whiteheads on the skin = product acne (from cloggy cosmetics).
Red, inflamed, and/or painful breakouts = sign of hormone imbalance.
The product acne is an easy fix. Just go 100% non-comedogenic on your skincare products. Here's a Clearing Product Acne cheat sheet to get you there.
Hormonal acne on the other hand is a result of high testosterone and/or DHT (dihydrotestosterone) hormone levels in the body. And the good news is, there is so much we can do to balance these hormones naturally.
From a holistic perspective, we want to identify what root causes are creating this imbalance. That can come from one or more of the following:
- food triggers
- excessive alcohol consumption
- chronic sleep/stress issues
- certain medications (i.e. birth control, steroids)
- underlying chronic issues (PCOS, cortisol imbalance, etc).
There is always an internal root cause driving hormonal acne. And this means that conventional treatments are often not able to deliver long-term results in clearing chronic acne issues.
If you've been feeling frustrated by creams, topicals and pills that don't seem to make any difference (other than nasty side effects), I'm here to deliver hope. You have the ability to balance your acne hormones naturally in a simple, effective way. I know because I did it and I help others do it everyday.
You see, I myself spent over a decade with persistent, daily acne. I worked with three dermatologists, none of whom were able to solve the issue. I felt hopeless and my consistent breakouts were taking a huge toll on my mental health and self esteem.
Having acne ate away at my life. But then, after two years of my own deep healing work, I successfully found a way out that has kept me permanently acne-free for over 14 years. And wanted to help others so they didn't have to suffer like I did.
As a holistic acne specialist, I have spent the past 12 years helping over 1,600 clients balance their acne hormones in a natural, authentic, and long lasting way. It is my joy to bring people back to their natural clear skin state of being, and see their faces and lives light up with a new sense of freedom and possibility.
If you have hormonal acne, I want you to know that your case is not hopeless. Your skin is trying to communicate to you that something needs balance and healing. When we can decipher that message and make permanent change, long lasting clear skin results are the outcome.
I deeply desire to help every single human with acne that wants to break free get there, once and for all in an authentic, natural, and long lasting way. Here's how to get started:
- Realize that acne is your body trying to communicate with you. Acne is trying to call in your attention to where your body needs healing. Start by shifting into a place where you feel ready to fully listen to and change what is needed for your body to be healthy with you.
- Find the root cause of your acne. This is your way out. Understanding what is causing your hormonal imbalance and making the right changes for your body is the key to getting acne-free. I've laid out a roadmap above of the common places acne hormonal imbalance comes from. You can start to work on these yourself, but if you're not seeing movement in your skin after several months, I highly encourage you to get support. Working with a specialist to identify these is key and testing is not always needed in order to do so.
- Get help from an established acne specialist. I'll be honest - I struggled to find the right practitioner to help me with my skin. Because of that, it took me two years of daily elimination dieting to finally get free from my acne. It was a miracle that I even got there. Most people with chronic acne issues are never able to truly clear their skin because working to heal alone without proper guidance is incredibly hard and can take a very long time - if it happens at all. If you've been continuously struggling to get clear on your own, it's time to look at working with an established, credible acne specialist.
Since 2009, I have honed in on a proven holistic method with a 95%+ success rate clearing acne in just 3 months. This often is not just about getting clients clear skin. Freeing people from the burden of living with acne also frees them to fall in love with their life again.
The initial 90 min. new client session is a deep dive into identifying the root causes of your acne and a holistic plan to reverse it. I do this by examining details of your intake form, looking at active symptoms in your skin and body, and analyzing your skincare and/or makeup products. All of this allows me to give you detailed answers as to what’s happening with your body + skin and create a clear skin plan customized to you.

As always, it is my pleasure to be of service to you in your journey towards healing. May you have hope, may you feel possibility, and may you never feel like you have to do this alone.
