Hey! 👋 I’m Corie.

I struggled with moderate acne as a tween, teen and young adult. All the way into my early 30’s!
I suffered from acne for about 20 years of my life. Way too long, if you ask me.
It was often both physically and emotionally painful at times.
I thought, “surely at some point the breakouts will stop, right??”
“Isn’t acne a teenager’s issue? Like angst and poor decision making skills??”

Acne in adult women is a HUGE problem affecting so many.

If you are struggling with breakouts and inflamed skin, you’re not alone.
Though I know having acne as an adult can feel so isolating.
It seems like you’re the only one struggling because most people your age seem to have blemish-free skin!
Dermatologists prescribed me topical creams and such, but these were always so harsh on my sensitive skin.
I tried so many different things to try to help, yet I still struggled to obtain the clear skin I knew I deserved.
Lotions, potions, vitamins, food eliminations and weird homemade masks with honey and egg whites that would drip all over the place.
Even eating a “clean” diet and drinking a gallon of water a day wasn’t enough.

The gut-skin connection

It wasn’t until I learned about the gut-skin connection as a nutritional therapy practitioner, did I finally start making headway on my own skin.
So often, acne in adults is blamed on hormones.
I get it- it’s easy to blame so much on our fickle hormones.
And it’s true- if hormones are out of balance, the skin can pay a price.
However, what so many people don’t realize is just how much our gut health impacts the health of our skin.
Interestingly enough, you can’t truly balance your hormones without balancing your gut first.
Through my extensive nutrition education, I now know that gut health is the foundation of health.
You gotta get your gut right FIRST when trying to heal. Especially when we’re talking about the skin.
I dove headfirst into supporting my own gut health and started to see huge improvements in my acne.
Even though I had ZERO digestive symptoms, lab tests showed that my gut needed some serious support.
And it was all manifesting on my skin.

Skin healing is an inside job

The key to getting rid of adult acne FOR GOOD is to address what’s going on inside.
Acne on our skin is a warning sign from our bodies that something deeper is going on.
That’s why I’m here.
My mission is to help you get to the root cause of your adult acne so that you can have clearer skin for life.
I know you’re sick of doing everything in the book to get rid of your acne and yet you still wake up with new inflamed spots.
I know you’re tired of shelling out hard-earned dollars on topicals and treatments that don’t make the difference that you want.
You deserve better.
You deserve a holistic approach that will clear your skin AND improve your overall health.
What are you waiting for?
