In this week’s episode, CLEARSTEM Skincare founders Danielle Gronich (The Acne Guru) and Kayleigh Christina walk us through everything we need to know about healing our skin from acne, accelerated aging and skin flare-ups of all kinds. From gut dysfunction, to the foods we eat, to the products we use on a daily basis, we learn how each one of these can impact the type of acne you have and your skin’s overall appearance. Instead of relying on conventional approaches that get you little to no results, this episode will teach you how sexy healing truly is and exactly how to finally achieve the clear skin you have always wanted through functional medicine and non-toxic skin care.

Danielle Gronich is the formulator and CEO of CLEARSTEM, a nontoxic anti-aging and anti-acne skincare line, and the founder of The San Diego Acne Clinic. Danielle’s 10-year acne struggle was the impotence to her current reputation as The Acne Guru™. After three failed rounds of Accutane and multiple laser treatments, Danielle took a leap of faith and decided to leave the corporate world. She dove into clinical research and went back to school to find the answers to her acne for herself, earning her license as a clinical esthetician and acne specialist. She learned that acne has multiple triggers that operate in tandem and that thoroughly evaluating each case in a holistic way – both internal and external – is the only way to help truly manage skin.

Kayleigh Christina is the Co-Founder and COO of CLEARSTEM, a nontoxic anti-aging and anti-acne skincare line. 

As a Certified Holistic Nutritionist, published author, podcaster, and investor of wellness-based brands, Kayleigh has a deep passion for making a positive impact in other people’s lives. Her journey into the skincare world began when she developed numerous health issues - a breast tumor and severe cystic acne in her mid-twenties - and tried in vain to find a cure. After countless doctors, dermatologists, and specialists, no one could figure out what was going on. That’s when she took matters into her own hands and discovered San Diego Acne Clinic, where she met co-founder Danielle Gronich. Not only did her acne clear up, but through their sessions, the duo discovered their mutual passion for helping other acne sufferers achieve clear skin through internal and external methods without sacrificing their health. That’s when CLEARSTEM Skincare was born.
