My rosacea healing journey

I first started seeing signs of rosacea in my early 30s.

Back then, holistic medicine wasn’t as accessible as it is today, so my first call was to a dermatologist’s office.

5 minutes into the consult I was told: “you have rosacea, it’s incurable, nothing you can do. But take this prescription, it might help.”

Intuitively, I knew there had to be a better way.

I threw the prescription in the garbage on my way out the door and decided that, if this doc wasn’t gonna help, someone else would. But who?

Since I couldn’t find anyone that could propose a real solution, I hid my rosacea under a thin layer of Jane Iredale Pure-Pressed Powder and continued to ignore the messages my skin was trying to tell me.

My rosacea healing journey

I first started seeing signs of rosacea in my early 30s.

Back then, holistic medicine wasn’t as accessible as it is today, so my first call was to a dermatologist’s office.

5 minutes into the consult I was told: “you have rosacea, it’s incurable, nothing you can do. But take this prescription, it might help.”

Intuitively, I knew there had to be a better way.

I threw the prescription in the garbage on my way out the door and decided that, if this doc wasn’t gonna help, someone else would. But who?

Since I couldn’t find anyone that could propose a real solution, I hid my rosacea under a thin layer of Jane Iredale Pure-Pressed Powder and continued to ignore the messages my skin was trying to tell me.

But then, in my late 30s, my skin started to get worse.

Clearly, the stress of owning 2 retail stores, driving back and forth to the city several times a week (in traffic, with 2 Schnoodles in the car), and drinking a little too much organic red wine, started to take its toll.

The inflammation on my cheeks was becoming harder to ignore, and the persistent rosacea “bumps” were starting to drive me nuts.

I also noticed unusual breakouts (different from the rosacea “bumps”) which, I would later learn, were due to Demodex mites.

No longer able to ignore the issue, I looked at my skin in the mirror and asked: “What are you trying to tell me?” Clearly, she wanted my attention!

So I decided to pay attention and take action by working with any holistic practitioners I could find.

Ayurveda? Check. Naturopathy? Check. Energy Medicine? Check. Holistic Nutrition? Check.

In my journey of getting to the root causes of rosacea, I had the privilege of working and learning from incredible holistic practitioners.

But I quickly realized that rosacea wasn’t their expertise and that they could only take me so far…

So I decided to study Functional Nutrition, Herbal Medicine, and Wholistic Biology (which gets to the emotional root cause of dis-ease) and become that expert myself.

Now I get to work with womxn who are ready to commit to walking the holistic path on their rosacea healing journey.

Healing rosacea is absolutely possible.

No matter where you are on your rosacea healing journey, no matter how bad your skin is, I’m here to remind you that anything is possible, including the full and complete healing of your skin.

You might need to optimize your digestion, heal your gut, detoxify your body of harmful chemicals or pathogens, or pinpoint the emotional root cause of rosacea.

But with the right strategy, support, and road map, you too will get to your goal of clear glowing skin.

Never give up,

PS: In case you’re wondering where I’m at on my rosacea healing journey… At the time of writing this, I’m 70% there, not fully healed, but much closer to my goal of clear, rosacea-free skin. (Sometimes I wonder if I’m the hard “case” to crack so that I can help others who also can’t seem to crack the rosacea code.)

I share this in all honesty, there’s no point in pretending that this isn’t a journey for me as well. My hope in sharing my story with you, as well as the resources, programs & services on this website, is to save you time, money, and hopefully headaches + heartaches.

 

But then in my late 30s, my skin started to get worse.

Clearly, the stress of owning 2 retail stores, driving back and forth to the city several times a week (in traffic, with 2 whiny Schnoodles in the car), and drinking a little too much organic red wine, started to take its toll.

The inflammation on my cheeks was becoming harder to ignore, and the persistent rosacea breakouts were starting to drive me nuts.

My skin became sensitive to most skincare products, sometimes leaving me with a HUGE reaction after their use. I also noticed unusual breakouts (different from the rosacea “bumps”) which, I would learn later, were due to Demodex mites.

No longer able to ignore the issue, I looked at my skin in the mirror and asked: “What are you trying to tell me?”

I started to explore any holistic modalities that called to my heart.

Radiantly Clear Botanical Skincare System for Rosacea

I created my own line of botanical skincare because I couldn’t find anything on the market that met my standards for clean beauty AND addressed the needs of sensitive, rosacea-prone skin.

The Radiantly Clear Rosacea / Demodex Botanical Skincare System contains 5 products, each formulated with pure plant botanicals that support the healing of inflamed rosacea-prone skin while making the skin’s microbiome (the terrain) unfavorable to Demodex mites.
