In this episode:

  • What could be causing acne triggers

  • Ingredients to avoid in your skincare routine

  • Effects of stress & hormones on skin health

  • Understanding what to look for in products & why

Danielle and Kayleigh met when Kayleigh, a successful holistic nutritionist and health & wellness blogger, was dealing with Celiac reactions resulting in severe cystic acne and inflammation. She was working to heal internally but was looking for ways to treat her skin externally as well.

This led her to Danielle, the owner of the San Diego Acne Clinic. After working with Danielle and realizing that our skin absorbs 60% of what is placed on it (including harmful chemicals, cheap fillers and toxic acne triggering ingredients!), Kayleigh realized the true value of skincare and all the ingredients behind it.

After Danielle mentioned that she was beginning to develop her own skincare brand, Kayleigh immediately jumped on board. With her strong nutritional background, obsession for high-quality ingredients and passion for non-toxic, natural skin treatments, it was the perfect match.

I am SO excited for today’s episode because it’s a bit different of a topic, but I know it will provide such incredible value!

Clearstem founders Danielle & Kayleigh join us to chat all things skin health, acne triggers, stress & hormones, and share their very unique story of how they got to where they are today as owners of an incredibly successful skincare company.

They are huge advocates of helping consumers understand how the products we use & environmental issues can affect our skin and really just helping consumers feel knowledgeable to feel empowered to take action & make educated choices.

I’ve gotten a ton of DMs on instagram & questions about skin, so I am pumped to bring this episode to you today & I can’t wait to hear what you think!
