I understand your skin challenges because I’ve been there, too.

Around 19, I developed cystic acne.

As you can imagine, it’s devastating.

My face hurt. There was so much inflammation it gave me headaches.

But it hurt my confidence even more. I’d look in the mirror and think, “Who IS that?” I’d left the house feeling good, but by afternoon, I’d have a huge, volcanic zit on my face – sometimes several.

I went to all the doctors and dermatologists. I tried all the things. Well, most of the things (I wasn’t into taking harsh medications like Accutane, though I did try some antibiotics and topicals). But what really bothered me was no one could explain to my why I was breaking out.

And that’s what led me to school. I wasn’t getting answers or solutions, so I decided to find them myself.

I did get results for myself and clients using traditional methods. But what I’ve learned recently has taken those results to a whole new level.

And as for my own skin? I used to think I naturally had pink, blotchy skin. Nope! I was listening to the “experts” and over-exfoliating. My skin is now way more even and all I use for makeup is tinted sunscreen. And a little eye makeup for fun.

I’m not the only judge. I get constant compliments on my skin. Jaws drop when someone learns my age.

People are shocked when they find out I struggled with acne, too. You’d never know.

So perfect timing, finding me at this moment — when I’m better equipped than ever to help you achieve the beautiful, glowing, compliment-worthy skin you’ve been dreaming about.
