The only constant in life is change, and that goes double for our skin. Whether we’re dealing with teenage breakouts or the first appearance of wrinkles, we’re all looking for a way to care for our skin and love what we see in the mirror. The past four decades living in my skin have been quite the journey. The most important thing I’ve learned? The process of healing and loving your skin starts from within.
It all began in my mid-twenties when I developed severe cystic acne as a result of having endometriosis and ovarian cysts. The work of trying to heal my skin led me to a career as a holistic esthetician, where I discovered a passion for helping others through their skin journeys.
I learned that our skin is not only affected by what we put on our bodies, but also by what is going on with our health, diet, genetics and environment. Treating hundreds of beautiful faces and hearing countless skin stories taught me more than any book, class or license did. I took all of those lessons to heart, and as I applied my knowledge to my own life, my skin slowly started to heal. (Learn more about the steps I took to heal my acne here!)
