Do you want clear, glowing skin that’s totally blemish free?
Those painful deep spots, those pustular cysts, those red bumps and those white heads that just keep popping up…those do not have to be your future.
You can have beautiful clear skin that stays clear long term. No more finally clearing it up, only to be bombarded with a fresh wave of spots the minute you stop actively treating your skin.
You can have the skin you desperately want. The skin that you don’t have to think twice about before you step outside. The skin that doesn’t have to be covered up in makeup. The skin that is clear, smooth and makes you feel so darn confident and amazing every single day.
What causes acne?
The cause of acne isn’t just a topical skin issue, it’s also found within you.
That’s why you could treat your acne topically until the cows come home, but until you address what’s driving it from within, you’ll never get rid of it for good.
So what is the root cause of acne? Well I’m glad you asked.
Ultimately acne occurs because of two processes happening in the skin: increased skin oil (sebum) production and increased skin cell proliferation (your skin cells replicate way faster than you want them too). This combo forms a plug, and a little house party happens in your pores. What’s the end result of a house party? A sticky, grotty mess = pus = acne.
To clear your acne for good, you need to address all the things that cause your skin to make so much extra oil, cause your skin cells to replicate like it’s their dying wish and cause your skin pores to throw that party when they become plugged.
Those things include:
- Hormonal imbalances (I’m looking at you testosterone)
- Blood sugar imbalances (aka. your blood sugar spikes high)
- Impaired liver detox pathways
- Nutritional deficiencies
- Gut: leaky gut & an overgrowth of particular ‘bad’ gut bacteria
- Your skin microbiome and skin cell structure (they’re leaking oil for a reason)
- Certain foods
- Sluggish emunctories (aka. your lymphatic system which is the garbage disposal unit of your body, your gut, liver and kidneys)
All these things can cause acne in various ways and cause different types of acne.
The lucky part is – these are all easily fixed and once they’re balanced, you can say goodbye to your acne for good.
How can you heal your acne?
To clear your skin for good, you need to clear it from the inside out.
No more bandaiding it, but really figuring out your root cause and addressing that so you can finally break the acne-forming cycle and get that luscious clear skin.
FIGURE OUT IF YOUR ACNE IS:
Hormonal – it gets worse before your period or during your period and often appears along your jawline.
Inflammatory-driven – it can be red, painful and can be filled with whiteheads all over your face, chest and back.
Toxin driven – often deep, very pustular or cystic acne that hangs around like a bad smell.
Blood sugar driven – often oily and is persistently there, but gets worse with certain foods and during high stress.
Skin cell impaired – can have really oily or really dry skin but still gets a bunch of acne and notice it gets worse after sweating or after you’ve used super drying and stripping skin care products.
You may have one or a combination of different types of acne, but once you address the root causes driving your acne to bloom to life, that acne will be gone for life.
If you need a helping hand, I’m always right here to help you figure it all out in a joyful, simple and stress-free way so you can finally get that clear, confident skin you really deserve. And get it for life.
