MEET THE TEAM
“In the lead up to my wedding 2 years ago I was stressed - working 12 hour days in my psychotherapy practice, moving house and planning a wedding began to take its toll and I developed cystic acne all over my face. I had always suffered from breakouts but at 33 this was the worst my skin had ever been. I tried everything - facials, skincare, laser, antibiotics and eventually Roaccutane which did clear up my acne but also elevated my anxiety. Out of pure desperation I began researching what is it about stress that causes skin issues? As a therapist I knew I wasn’t dealing with the root cause of my acne and as soon as I stopped taking the pills that my acne would come right back. All of the research papers pointed to cortisol - the stress hormone. This led me to discover adaptogens, probiotics and linoleic acid rich oils. Within 6 weeks I had sorted my skin out and I just knew I had to share this with others suffering from skin problems. Disciple was born".
