How many times have you stood in front of your mirror and cursed, yelled, or cried out at your acne?
You know what I’m talking about…
The frustration you feel when you wake up only to find a new whitehead has decided make a home on your cheek. The despair you feel when you step out of the shower, and are about to get ready for your hot date in an hour, but discover a subterranean mountain has taken root on your chin. That feeling of embarrassment when you step into your sexy, strappy black dress, only to see the constellation of zits across your back.
But you’ve tried it all right?
Creams. Peels. The Pill. Antibiotics. Popping. Makeup. Unicorn tears.
Enough is enough.
When did it become ok to spend all your energy and half your paycheque on treatments, cosmetics and medications to conceal your skin?
You deserve better. You deserve a flawless complexion that let’s you step into the world with confidence and radiance. Skin that is beautiful, effortless and acne-free, and doesn’t require you being on medications that make you feel like a crazy person. Young, dewy skin that has your girlfriends begging you for your dermatologist’s phone number.
Think that sounds too good to be true? It’s not.

Fed up with adult acne? So was I!
I felt like while I got older, my skin was stuck in its teens. The acne I had experienced as a teenager plagued, me all throughout my twenties, only getting worse as I got older.
The excuses and apologies I would make for the zits on my chest and back when wearing a tank top.
The awkward moments when I’d catch people looking at my pimples and not in my eyes.
That horribly embarrassing moment with the clerk at the grocery store suggested I wear a scarf to cover the acne on my neck. (She thought it was a hickey!)
I was so frustrated. Frustrated at my body because it seemed confused that I wasn’t 16 anymore. Jealous of my friends who seemed to have flawless skin totally effortlessly. And mad at my doctor because it seemed the only solutions I was offered were antibiotics and the birth control pill.
What I was doing clearly wasn’t working. Something needed to shift.
That shift happened when I had a divine download sitting in class at nutrition school. I was learning about the connections between nutrition and imbalances in the body when the light went on.
I’d been treating my acne like it was the problem.
But my acne wasn’t the issue, it was a symptom of a deeper imbalance.
I started taking the principles and information I was learning at school and applying them to myself. I improved and refined my diet, researched and implemented a supplement protocol, and removed environmental factors that were irritating my skin. I worked on my mindset and my lifestyle, and within a matter of days I was starting to see results.
My acne started healing. And instead of one pimple drying up and a new one popping up in its place, the skin remained clear and the inflammation went away.
Experiencing these results, and so quickly, was inspiring! Or if you appreciate a good pun – Skinspiring!
