The Clear Skin Plan


Discover the diet and lifestyle factors that contribute to acne so you can upgrade your habits to achieve clear, radiant skin from within.

This science-backed and doctor-approved guide is based on cutting-edge research on the gut-brain-skin axis and the impact of nutrition on skin.

You’ll learn which diet and lifestyle changes could have the biggest impact for YOU, and how to make over 100 delicious anti-inflammatory recipes designed to support clearer skin from within. Bonus – they also support a better mood, better digestion, and a healthier you.

If you’ve tried just about everything to clear your skin, and nothing has worked, it’s time to try this.**


Many skincare products cause skin to get worse before it gets better. Dietary and lifestyle recommendations help skin improve, without getting worse.

No waiting 6+ months for results

Once you upgrade your diet and lifestyle, you can expect to see small improvements within as little as 3-7 days, and more significant improvement within 90 days.***

No risk of harsh side effects

Clear skin should not come at the expense of your future health. Acne products that come with the risk of yeast infections, gut imbalances, birth defects, or mood alterations? No, thank you.

The Clear Skin Plan Philosophy



Acne is your wake-up call to look at what's going on inside and re-evaluate your diet and lifestyle choices. Acne is often a sign of internal inflammation and imbalance.

Acne is not a sign of bad luck or bad skin. It’s a sign of internal inflammation and imbalance within

There is a growing body of scientific evidence that suggests an undeniable link between diet and lifestyle choices and acne.


Nutrient Deficiencies

Those with acne are more likely to be deficient in certain key nutrients.

1, 23

Chronic Inflammation

Acne is an inflammatory condition incited by systemic inflammation.


Hormone Imbalance

Hormone and blood sugar imbalances increase sebum production and acne.

6, 7, 8, 9

Gut Imbalance

Gut microbiota influence systemic and skin inflammation. Gut dysbiosis and dysregulation of the gut-brain-skin axis are key contributors to acne

10, 11, 12, 30, 31

Mental Stress

Mental stress impairs the gut and skin barrier, increases inflammation, and is linked to breakouts.

13, 14, 15, 16

Harsh Skincare

Harsh products and overwashing or scrubbing can disrupt the skin barrier and skin microbiome which may cause more inflammation.

17, 18, 19


Glowing skin starts within

Achieving clear skin requires a holistic, multi-pronged approach. Ditching one or two food groups is often not enough. But, nourishing your body and calming your mind, is.


Replenish Nutrients

A nutrient-rich diet supports clearer skin.

20, 21, 22, 23

Reduce Inflammation

An anti-inflammatory diet and lifestyle combat acne from within.

24, 25

Rebalance Hormones

A low glycemic diet that keeps blood sugar and hormones stable helps to reduce the severity and frequency of breakouts.

26, 27, 28, 29

Repair Digestion

A balanced gut microbiome, strong gut barrier, and healthy digestive system aid in reducing systemic and skin inflammation.

30, 31, 32

Restore Peace

Stressful emotional states influence systemic and skin inflammation. Stress reduction and a calm mind are essential for calm skin.

32, 33, 34

Replace Harsh Skincare

Diet and lifestyle do the heavy-lifting when it comes to improving your skin. A pared down skin routine with gentle ingredients allows your skin to do what it does best: repair itself.

Doctor Approved

Frequently Asked Questions

What does the Clear Skin Plan entail?

The plan helps you assess your diet and lifestyle habits to figure out which of them may be triggering breakouts.

Primarily you’ll be making changes to your diet. You’ll be adding in nutrient-dense, low glycemic, anti-inflammatory foods while minimizing or avoiding pro-inflammatory, pro-acne foods such as dairy and sugar.

You’ll also learn about the lifestyle triggers of acne, such as stress, lack of sleep, and lack of movement, and how to improve your habits in those areas.

Finally, since your diet and lifestyle do the heavy lifting when it comes to improving your skin, the guide recommends gentle, natural skincare products to address breakouts and scarring. (Sold separately).

How long will it take to see results?

Participants typically begin to see small changes within 3-7 days of following the protocol, in the form of a reduction of redness, inflammation, and bumps. Full or substantial clearance can take between 4-12 weeks, with some requiring a little longer.

I've eliminated dairy/sugar/[insert food here] but still break out. Will this work for me?

Often people are skeptical that diet can have a significant impact on their skin, especially if they tried an elimination or two, and their skin didn’t clear up. While dairy is a common, well-established acne trigger, there are many possible acne-genic foods as well as underlying root causes of acne, such as gut imbalance, hormone imbalance, blood sugar imbalance, stress, chronic inflammation, and nutrient deficiencies.

So, simply removing a food or two or three, is often not enough to eradicate acne. Additionally, we each have our own unique history, genetics, and biochemistry – which means there is not one clear skin diet that works for everyone.

That’s why The Clear Skin Plan offers a customizable, whole-body approach to acne. When it comes to diet, we help you figure out the eliminations and the additions YOU need to clear your skin, and pair it with a protocol to address any imbalances of the gut, body, and even mind. The result is a targeted protocol to help you clear your skin, for good.

I already eat healthy. Will this work for me?

Most likely, yes. Everyone’s definition of healthy is slightly different. And, because we each have our own history, genetics, and biochemistry, the healthiest diet for each of us is actually different, too.

The Clear Skin Plan helps you find the diet, skincare, and habits that work best for your unique body.

Can I still use my skincare while on this plan?

It seems like the current trend in skincare is the harsher, the better. But, acne prone-skin is already red, irritated, and angry – so why exacerbate it with harsh products that disrupt the skin barrier and induce more peeling, flaking, and redness?

Diet and lifestyle will do the heavy lifting for clearing acne, so harsh topicals are not recommended. Instead, we’ll recommend a minimal amount of simple, natural, highly effective skincare products to treat current outbreaks and scarring while improving the texture of the skin and seeing an esthetician once a month. 

I mostly eat out / don't like to cook. Can I still do this plan?

Yes, we’re all for convenience, so we provide you with guidelines for eating and ordering out. Although, we have to tell you – our recipes are so simple and delicious, we bet you’ll be tempted to spend more time in the kitchen! Note that the best, quickest results will come from choosing high-quality, nourishing ingredients, which you have more control over at home. 


Is this plan suitable for a vegan / vegetarian?

Absolutely. No matter what your dietary preference – vegan, vegetarian, pescetarian, or omnivore – you can do The Clear Skin Plan, as we have options for all.

The plan is naturally mostly plant-based, plus there are specific guidelines and 4 weeks of meal plans outlined for those following a vegan or vegetarian diet.

For non-veg, there are guidelines and 4-weeks of meal plans for you, too.

If diet and lifestyle changes are the best way to clear up acne, why doesn't my dermatologist know about this?

Since the 1970s, dermatologists have been taught that there is no link between diet and skin. However, in recent decades there is a growing, undeniable, body of evidence to suggest that diet and lifestyle are contributing to the rising acne rates.

As of 2019, the American Academy of Dermatology, which sets the Dermatology curriculum, finally acknowledged the potential role of dairy and sugar in acne but stopped short of suggesting derms should make dietary recommendations to their patients or even acknowledge the very many other potential diet and lifestyle triggers.

That’s why in practice, your derm will probably never ask what you eat or make a dietary recommendations. Instead, they rely on prescribing pharmaceuticals.
