The following are full reviews & feedback (collected via a short survey) Naturally Clear Skin Bootcamp / Naturally Clear Skin Academy Participants on the incredible results they’ve seen in their skin and lives by participating in the program!
“I’ve had so many compliments on my skin. People are amazed at my transformation!”
I’d been in a horrible situation where I avoided mirrors and cameras for years, not wanting anyone to see what I looked like.
So when I heard about your Academy program, I didn’t really hesitate too much… I knew that I needed a change in my life and I also know that nothing I had tried worked long term. I just jumped in and got it started and haven’t looked back since.
I feel much happier, my skin has cleared up and I only get the occasional break out and I haven’t had cystic acne since starting the bootcamp four months ago.
I finally feel like I am living and it’s such a good feeling. I’m finally brave enough to go out and do things that I wanted to do that I was scared to do because I was self conscious about my acne.
I have had so many complements on my skin and my overall health. People who I haven’t seen in months (and sometimes before bootcamp!) are amazed at my transformation.

“This is a life changing experience which will help you in many areas of your health. Don’t hesitate – just do it.”
Before the Naturally Clear Skin Bootcamp & Academy, I felt lost as I had grown up with acne. I obsessed with food and looking in the mirror. My mood was dictated by how bad my skin was. It wasn’t good.
I had some hesitations to sign up because I’ve trawled the Internet for many years trying all sorts of “miracle” creams, lotions, potions and supplements. Anything which promised what I wanted. Of course none of them worked.
But here’s what I’ve experienced from joining:
- Tracy and the other people on the boot camp truly understood my pain.
- A proper healthy eating programme
- It made me look differently at my skin
- I was so obsessed with food before, that I was heading towards an eating disorder, but the Bootcamp changed that
- I use to suffer from itchy hives and they have stopped
- I use to get periods of my hair falling out in handfuls and that’s stopped
- My general levels of fatigue have improved drastically
- I’ve saved so much money by not buying endless amounts of creams and lotions
- My mood is soooo much happier and I actually look forward to evenings out now and have stopped looking for excuses for going as my skin was stopping me
- My skin is now clear!
I would recommend the Bootcamp / Academy to others in the same situation because there is an answer to all this crap! Doctors’ drugs are not the answer. This is a life changing experience which will help you in many areas of your health. Don’t hesitate – just do it.
Apart from the fantastic layout of all the components of the boot camp, my best bit about it was posting on the boot camp forum as Tracy answered you, so you weren’t just left to it to go it alone. Everyone on the boot camp forum are lovely and “real”. And we’re all there with the same goal and really “get it” and we all support each other which, let’s face it if you’ve never been there you won’t truly understand.

“I’m so happy to not be worrying about the giant red mountains on my chin anymore!”
I was pretty unhappy with the way my skin looked. As a teenager, I had oily skin, but never much acne. It wasn’t until I got married in my early 20s and started taking birth control pills that my skin suddenly went nuts. I stopped the pill about 5 years ago because it was ruining my health, but my skin never recovered.
I constantly had awful, cystic acne all over my face that couldn’t be covered with makeup (or makeup just highlighted the spots), and was so embarrassed by it. I am almost 30; it’s not normal to be dealing with acne at my age! I felt like everyone was staring at it all the time.
Add to that the fact that I often work in theatre, where like it or not, you’re directly judged for your looks at auditions, and you have a pretty insecure person.
I had a few hesitations to join the Bootcamp / Academy because I wondered if I was just going to hear the same info that I’d spent time researching already on my own. But I discovered that there was a lot more I could learn!
I had already started my “journey towards wellness” a few years ago when I started seeing a naturopath and completely revamped my diet and lifestyle, so I was off to a good start already and nothing was a major shock to my system.
But the program certainly reminded me to stick to the plan and how important it was to take care of myself, which is easy to forget when life gets busy!
I liked learning about some of the hows and whys of acne, and delving into reasons for skin touching compulsions. I also learned that not every person’s skin reacts well to the same things. I went through a lot of experimentation with some of the recommended methods, giving them plenty of time to evaluate their effect on my skin. But my acne seemed to just get worse! Many other Academy members have had great success with those, so I wondered what was wrong, and spent a lot of time on the forums gathering advice and reading others’ experiences.
Then I decided to try more of a modified Caveman regimen, cutting out the honey face washes and just using it as needed for a spot treatment. Voila. My skin has cleared up quite nicely, and the discoloration from the old acne is fading. I just needed to stop messing with it so much!
Thanks to pulling information from all the Academy materials, I now have a “clear skin regimen” that consists of healthy eating, hormone supporting supplements, and a nightly gentle natural face 🙂
I’m so happy to not be worrying about the giant red mountains on my chin anymore! There’s still some blotchy redness, but it is definitely on the way to healing now, and I’ll bet it will start looking better and better as time goes on.
*My third “after” picture does have a little bit of makeup…a light dusting of powder. But you can see that there’s not ugly bumps and irregularities anymore!
I’d definitely recommend the program! I love how it looks at the whole lifestyle, not just what goes on your face. It encourages people to start loving themselves, which means treating their body in a way where it will begin to heal itself and work the way it’s supposed to.
It also addresses the mental processes, which tends to be overlooked…and chronic acne can definitely hurt your self-worth, so this is wonderful. Programs like this need to get into the hands of young girls so they start valuing themselves and learning healthy habits before the chemical-laden product companies get ahold of them and start them down a path that doesn’t work, just harms you in the long run.
You did a great job with this program, Tracy! 🙂 The content is wonderful!

“I’m so much happier now! My skin is healing and it just glows now. I look so much better… but the real benefit is that I FEEL better”
Well, it sucked (my feelings about my skin, that is, prior to the Bootcamp / Academy). Ive always had body image issues, and my skin had just taken a drastic turn for the worse following a volunteer stint abroad. So naturally I fixated on that issue next – forgetting about whatever ‘imperfect’ aspect of my body that had me so captivated before. It was affecting my life, in a way I absolutely hated. My self confidence was just completely gone.
When I was considering buying the program, the price made me nervous, but I was so fed up with my skin I felt like I needed a step-by-step protocol to heal it, and my whole self (mind and body) would be worth it. I wasn’t really scared as far as the daunting changes you proposed – I was game to try it!
I’m so much happier now! My skin is healing, and it just glows now. I look so much better.. but the real benefit is that I FEEL better. I feel healthy, which is something I didn’t even know I was missing before. My mind is such a happier place now – its really strange!
The Academy helped to launch my on a whole holistic health journey, and I’ve dived right in to everything! I’ve become certified by the Primal Blueprint in the Paleo lifestyle, simply because I became to interested in this whole-body approach to health and happiness. The funny thing is, none of this would have happened if it hadn’t gotten so fed up with my skin in the first place, and decided to do something about it.
I would definitely recommend the Academy, but only if they were willing to make the commitment completely. You can’t half-ass this – you have to be fully devoted to your self and your health to really get the benefit. I’m not saying you have to go become a health Nazi… but you have to go into this with the mindset that this is a health change for life, not a quick cleanse or crash diet. Health is forever, and you have to honor yourself enough to go for it.

“People who hadn’t seen me for a few weeks said “wow your skin looks clear, what are you doing different?”
Before the Naturally Clear Skin Academy, I was searching for a job but highly self conscious there was acne all over my body. I wanted this gone so my new employer and workmates would respect me more. Kind of like a “it’s o.k. to have acne at school and university but not in the ‘adult world’ sort of mentality.
I was also feeling low in confidence and struggling to not pick at my skin. I was feeling like the odd one out and wanting my skin to look nice and clear like those around me.
I found out about your programme by searching for answers on the net. I knew this was for me because you look at the whole issue holistically. No harsh chemicals, or advertising any one product, or advising people to take Accutane. I love your approach of being kind to yourself and your body, acne or not, eating whole nutritious foods, basic natural products e.t.c.
This approach appealed to me because it was the only thing I was willing to try; I always believed the answer was not through strong medicine or chemicals but was not sure where else to turn for help. So when I saw your program I knew this was the answer I needed.
I started about a month before Christmas but what I found most difficult was leaving my skin alone. But I persevered and people who hadn’t seen me for a few weeks said “wow your skin looks clear, what are you doing different?”
Then I would tell them all about your wonderful program and the holistic approach you take and how it covers every aspect of acne you can think of- skin care routine, not picking it, natural supplements, food, loving yourself, including fun and laughter in life, letting go of stress, positive affirmations. I was just as pleased as those around me and could see a light of acne some day being in the past.
But then Christmas and new years holiday came and I let myself go and eat as I pleased. Took a while to get back into clear skin stuff again but I’m getting there. I found you provided so much information it was difficult to implement all in just 6 weeks. So I’ve been doing 1 thing at a time. First my food, then exercise, and now I’m working on fun and enjoyment and positive affirmations. It’s always a bit difficult to leave it alone but I’m getting better!
The only thing I’m doing you don’t recommend is taking a Retinyl Palmitate supplement which appears to be helping. Other than that I love all your suggestions!
It might take me a year to implement/try everything and clear my skin completely but I’m on the right path for sure. My mood and energy have also improved which I love, and I’m getting addicted to eating vegetables!
Already I have recommended this program to others and anyone who asks what I’m doing. Thank-you for your holistic approach, I’m in full support of it. And thank-you for helping me to not only clear my skin but also feel more involved in life and happy 🙂

“Thanks to the Academy, I recently stopped being so annoyingly strict about my diet and guess what… my skin has cleared up like crazy!”
I was very desperate for clear skin. I remember the night that I found the Love Vitamin. It was one of those nights where I stayed up super late searching acne cures and clear skin stuff for hours.
Before the Academy I felt so fed up with my skin, I was tired of always obsessing over it. I felt like it was the only thing I talked about. Clear skin researching was my hobby, yet I wasn’t getting clear!
I actually had no hesitations on joining! I asked for it for Christmas because I felt like it was the one to cure me and it seemed very reasonably priced. I liked that program had a lot of content and covered different topics!
One of the biggest things that I have learned is to STOP stressing over what I eat. I recently stopped being so annoyingly strict about my diet and guess what… my skin has cleared up like crazy. I know it is because I’m not stressing so much!
I really like what I’ve learned about natural alternatives for face wash and toner and moisturizing. I have learned to not freak out over one or two pimples. I have gained a lot of knowledge about the hormone side of acne (I always thought my acne was digestive related, but I know it is hormonal).
I would definitely recommend this program to anyone suffering from acne because this program is SO practical and doable! I remember buying a book called Acne No More by Mike Walden and it was just way too extreme for me.
I would also recommend the program to people because your questions can get answers and it is so helpful to see how other people have dealt with things. I also like how you can take the program at whatever speed you like.
I loved not ever feeling alone in the process. I love that I get to talk to the creator of the program and get real feedback! Thank you Tracy and your team for creating this because you have given me a new confidence. Even though I am not 100% clear just yet I am really making good progress!

“I can safely say this was the best thing I’ve ever tried and I am finally seeing the results I longed for!”
Before the Bootcamp / Academy, I had low self-esteem and was letting my acne take over my life. I was just desperate to clear my skin, but I didn’t want to go down the road of tablets to clear it, but did not know what else to try. I felt trapped – trying to improve my skin, but nothing seemed to work, or not for long at least and it was frustrating.
I had hesitations to join just because there are so many programs/acne-cures out there that don’t work and I had tried a few of them without lasting results, but I can safely say this was the best thing I’ve ever tried and I am finally seeing the results I longed for!
Omgosh, there are so many! The biggest benefit has been the connection between what we eat and acne. Since giving up dairy, gluten and sugar my skin has calmed and at the moment I have 1 tiny spot, which I’m not feeling bad about at all. 🙂 It’s also helped improve my health. I’m still on the candida cleanse at the moment, but I’m not too regimental about it.
Another benefit has been the skincare regime – I hadn’t realised that the face wash I was using was causing my skin aggravation. So now I use manuka honey and water – which has really helped keep my forehead clear and it’s keeping my chin smooth and clear too.
Having the forum has been so beneficial, because this way you can ask questions specific to you; get feedback from other people on the program – feeling less isolated; as well as asking yourself (Tracy) and Samantha any questions.
I’m feeling much better about myself – going on weekends away, meeting new people and trying new things, which I would have felt too shy and embarrassed to do.
Without hesitation I would recommend this program to others! The information provided is so valuable info and opens your eyes to misconceptions (i.e. supermarket brands that ‘tackle’ acne aren’t that helpful and the link between acne and food possibly causing damage to your gut). The program also encourages self-love, which is really important as well. Also, it’s a lovely group of people all over the world who you can relate to and who get it, which encourages you along the journey!
The written material was engaging and got to the point, it was full of valuable information and really helped me get started with the program. The forum is such a good feature, because you can ask any and how ever many questions you like, as well as feeling comfortable asking them amongst friendly and encouraging people, who are going through similar experiences and can share them with you.
I have post acne scars and hyper-pigmentation on my cheeks, which I’m going to heal with dermaroller treatment, but I have cleared the acne from my cheeks and I can’t believe it! Thank you so much for your kind words and encouragement and for creating The Love Vitamin, it has been so valuable and I’m getting there, which I couldn’t see before this program. Self-love is so important, which we sometimes forget.
I haven’t attached pictures, because I have the post acne scars and hyperpigmentation, which could mislead people in to thinking the program’s not really helped, but I can 100% say that it has!

“I am not as stressed out about my skin, and I don’t blame myself anymore”
Before your program, I felt desperate. I have tried “every” skin care line I could get my hands on, still I remained in a vicious breakout cycle.
I was very unhappy with my skin condition. I have always dealt with mild low self-esteem and confidence, which the acne only exacerbates these issues. I just feel as much care and concern I have for my complexion and the time and effort I put into my skin, I should have beautiful glowing skin. Very frustrating.
I did have hesitations when joining. I figured it would just be another one of those bad purchases in an attempt to have clear skin. The cost of the program almost kept me from doing it, but I decided to give it a try. Glad I did.
I confess, I have not followed the program to a tee. I joined at the beginning of a semester (I am a college student, studying nutrition) and just simply do not have the time to focus as much as I want to.
But, I like that I have indefinite access so that I can start when I am ready. I have implemented small changes in my diet which have helped tremendously, but I still have room for much improvement.
I changed the way I cleanse my face, by using the honey and oil. I can tell my breakouts are different and don’t last as long.
My mindshift has definitely changed. I am not as stressed out about my skin. I think having access to a relaxed approach and products that are within my budget as well as eating healthier has changed the way I process my cystic acne.
I don’t blame myself anymore. It is not my fault that I have acne. That is a huge step for me to be able to admit that. I have hormonal, possible genetic, acne issues. I am learning to control it through my diet, taking better care of myself and adding in supplements.
I would recommend this program because it is different from anything I have ever tried!

“I have been told by friends that my skin looks amazing!”
Before starting the Bootcamp, I felt really bad about my skin. I was thinking about going back on Accutane until I came across The Love Vitamin. I didn’t have peace about going back on Accutane again but I felt like I had no choice…So I was feeling very desperate.
Before coming across the Love Vitamin, I knew that I needed to do some work on the inside. So I was a little overwhelmed before starting the Bootcamp. I was feeling very low when first starting the program. I was anxious and didn’t have much self love when it came to my appearance.
I had a bit of hesitation to join because I thought I was already doing things the natural way…by putting medication on my skin..that’s what people did with acne. ha ha. What helped me choose to do the program was by the things my nutritionist said. What Tracy was saying lined up with things she was telling me. It was kinda right place right time. I just took the risk and went for it! And I have not had regrets!!
When I first signed up with the program I had mild (consistent) acne. I signed up to the program back in the fall and I now have clear skin for 95% of the time. I have been told by a few of my friends that my skin looks amazing.
I definitely feel I have taken care of a lot of the anxiety that I have about my skin and also other areas of my life. I feel a lot better about myself for sure. Just knowing that I’m not the only one that has acne and struggles with anxiety has helped me the most.
I feel like myself and I enjoy my life, anxiety free for most of the time. There has also been a weight lifted off from needing to be in control and allowing my body to control itself.
Absolutely I would recommend this program…I already have!! I would tell them about the program because this program is sooo freeing. Even though we are focusing on changing our skin in the program, for some reason focusing on my skin by putting medication on it causes more stress and anxiety.
In this program it is more about letting go and letting your body do the healing. I feel like you are able to give up control by partnering with your body to see what it really needs and whats its lacking.
I don’t believe we should be trying to “fix” our body. We just need to allow it to heal by itself and giving it what it needs. That is what I have learned and that is why people should join the program!!
Thank you Tracy for everything you do!! Thank you for sharing your journey with everyone and sharing your knowledge!! You have helped me so much in my journey 🙂

“I can now go to my boyfriend’s or to work without make up and not have anxiety about how I look. That’s life changing.”
Before the bootcamp / Academy my skin consumed me. I was frustrated that Accutane and all conventional treatments and products had failed. It stressed me, sweating stressed me, dating stressed me, going anywhere without makeup stressed me, seeing myself in the mirror stressed me.
I didn’t have many hesitations because I had done a fair bit of my own research and the things Tracy was saying seemed to make sense to me. It actually seemed very inexpensive for what she was offering.
I was slightly scared of switching to using oils on my skin but boy am I glad I did. I was also a bit concerned about whether I could make some of the lifestyle changes with my hectic scheduled but I have managed it all ok, it wasn’t that hard.
The results? I don’t have any pimples. I am still getting a few on my jawline just before my period, but this is nothing like what it used to be and it clears up pretty quickly.
My beauty routine is simpler. I don’t have to worry about buying expensive product or if I’ll run out. My skin feels soothed, not irritated and my scars are beginning to fade too.
I used to have a lot of anxiety dating. I would hate for a guy to see me without makeup. Guess what. Since doing the program I started dating a guy, I only wore makeup on our first two dates and then decided if he really liked me he would like me without make up.
He’s now my boyfriend and the sweetest guy ever :D…I’ve also been asked out by two other guys without wearing makeup too!
It’s also encouraged me to go to a naturopath and begin to deal with some of the other health issues which I have avoided dealing with for years.
Without a doubt it was worth it and I would recommend this program.
For all the money I have spent over the years, this has been the most effective. I feel in more control of my skin now, I don’t have to worry about the fact that if I break out I will have to wait to get into a doctors or dermatologists to fix it.
I also think this program is good because it also aims to deal with stress and emotional impacts of acne. That’s really important and something that’s often overlooked by the conventional approach. Having the forum which created a safe space to converse with other people who truly understand and are on the same journey was invaluable.
I still don’t feel like my skin is gorgeous, I still notice the flaws, but that’s getting better. I can go to my boyfriends or to work without make up and not have anxiety about how I look. That’s a huge improvement for me. Life changing.

“I would absolutely recommend this program to people! The resources are great and the forums are a great source of information and wonderful people!”
Before the Academy, I felt ok for the most part but definitely would have moments of sadness/depression due to the way I looked. I had been used to having much clearer skin as a younger adult and would get extremely frustrated about my acne flare-ups.
I indeed had hesitations before joining. Not that it is a huge amount of money, but I wasn’t sure whether to just do more of my own research or pay for this course. In the end I decided that I wanted the easier way by having meal plans etc. laid out for me rather than diving once again into the crazy world of Google! (I still do my own research, but I really appreciate having this as a base to start from)
To be completely honest, I haven’t done the whole Academy. I am actually going to be starting it right away as I now have more time to focus on doing the full things rather than half-assing it.
However, from the bit that I have been doing, I think I have really benefitted from your videos Tracy and your materials. It has also been nice to know that other people struggle through the same thing. My skin still goes through ups and downs right now since I haven’t done the full lifestyle change, but it actually has gotten a fair bit better and I think that maybe just relaxing and knowing that I have these resources and also trying to eat better, has made a huge difference.
This has lead me to believe that my acne is not only hormonal, but likely quite stress related. I feel a lot better about my skin and care a bit less about having break-outs.
I would absolutely recommend this program to people! I think the cost is reasonable, and I feel like even if you don’t have time to do the full Bootcamp / Academy, the resources are great to have and the forums are a great source of information and wonderful people!
I love the way you write Tracy. You are so real and so wonderfully refreshing! I also really like your videos because I find them to be inspiring for me to change my lifestyle.

“I WILL NEVER go back to using conventional treatments and that is pure freedom!!”
Before joining, I was in a better place with my skin ONLY because of adapting new lifestyle changes that I learned through your website and candida cleanse. At the time, I also felt better about myself because of the changes I had made which positively affected my skin. Thanks to you, Tracy.
I didn’t have any hesitations on joining… not for one second. Although, I did need to run the cost (which was a FABULOUS deal) by my husband because we don’t make large purchases without confronting one another. Other than that, I knew I wanted in!
While I unfortunately wasn’t able to follow through with the “live” series, I have really appreciated all your efforts, knowledge, and wisdom you have poured into the program. I feel it is truly priceless and I refer to the information all the time.
My goal is to participate in your next “live” session, but in the meantime I am using recipes and reading other participants questions and experiences. Having the program and community to connect with alone helps me feel “less tainted”. Its good to know that I can reach out and seek advice.
ABSOLUTELY I would recommend the program! I already have! Like I said, although I didn’t finish the bootcamp the first time around, I know from my personal experience all of the positive changes that have already taken place from participating in your candida cleanse and through reading tons of information on your blog.
I WILL NEVER go back to using conventional treatments and that is pure freedom!!
Plus, I loved how the modules are set up for easy and quick access. I LOVED all the recipes and pretty fonts you used for those. The whole program is really nicely done. I know that took a lot of work!

“The self criticizing is at an all time low!”
Before the Bootcamp / Academy, I was frustrated with my skin and that nothing had been working, no matter how much effort I put into it.
Though I considered myself a happy person, I was always self criticizing…especially about the way I looked. I constantly let stress take over my emotions and would just break down a few times a week or lash out at my husband or myself.
I found this program at the right time when I knew I didn’t want to try anything radical like Accutane…so I figured why not give it a shot! The only hesitation was the money, as we were trying to pay off debt at the time, but my husband told me to go for it if I thought it would help, and I really did so I just went for it and didn’t look back.
My skin still isn’t perfect, but I’ve learned to channel my stress into healthier things and not let it overcome me as much which has probably been the biggest help.
I feel better on the inside since I’ve been sticking to a healthier diet (which I was before as well, but I liked to treat myself too often). I’m trying to always look for the good in things now instead of letting the bad stuff overwhelm me and that is helping tremendously as well.
As for how I feel about myself? The self criticizing is at an all time low! Though I still lack some confidence, I’m not beating myself down anymore.
Absolutely I would recommend the program! There was a lot of valuable information and having the community of people who are struggling with the same thing I am was so helpful.
It can often seem like I’m the only one dealing with acne, but having a support system of people going through it as well let me know that I had people who understood.
I thought everything was great. And the meal plans were really fun because I’m always looking for new healthy recipes to try out!
Terri, 22, UK
“The support, encouragement and knowledge is the perfect combination for an acne free future”
Before I joined the Academy, I was getting really frustrated with my skin. I had been off birth control for about 9 months and my skin was going crazy! I even gave my self a full fringe to try and hide behind, the cystic acne on my forehead was so bad.
I was trying so hard to feel optimistic about life… I had already started to change my lifestyle to adapt a more natural approach but my spot creams were holding me back from going completely chemical free!
I didn’t have many hesitations to joining, I think I was the second person to sign up! As soon as I started reading all the stories from other women you have helped I knew that your approach was exactly what I needed. I was also suffering from extreme anxiety at the time which has also subsided thanks to the program. Self love is such an important thing!
My skin is still going through waves of clear and breaking out but a lot less break outs and not nearly as severe as before. Since I began the program I’ve only had 2 cystic spots and they are not that bad compared to before, I used to get a new one every couple of days!
I have a much healthier relationship with food now than before, I used to worry about everything I ate, how would it effect my skin etc. Sometimes I would nearly purposely punish myself by skipping meals in hopes this would help, of course in reality this just made things worse!
I’ve also quit picking my skin completely! I used to squeeze the life out of my face, trying to get every little thing out but now I just leave it be and it sorts itself in a few days. The support from the forums has been great for that. Hearing others success with different methods really encourages me to stick to a new habit.
I would definitely recommend the program to someone in the same situation as me! Having a group of people going through the same thing is such a bonus but also having the expertise of Tracy and Samantha to answer any questions I have is invaluable. Any time I feel myself panicking I know I can hit up the forums and find my answer there, if it’s not I can ask the question knowing I’ll have an answer by the end of the day!
The support, encouragement and knowledge is the perfect combination for an acne free future, combined with healthy, happy living!
I also thought the workout videos are so helpful, it can be hard to find such beneficial ones that don’t require hours of your time to complete and that you can actually enjoy doing! Thanks!

“The programme has, in my opinion, benefits far beyond that of treating skin alone – like improved mindset for your entire life”
I felt not all that great before joining the Bootcamp. I was somewhat dissatisfied with my skin but not happy with myself and life as to how I was doing at university.
The only hesitation I had about joining the programme was wondering whether it would be much different than the previous programmes from Tracy that I already own. (Luckily, I found out that it was different and very much worthwhile!)
My best part about it was the sense of companionship and better understanding of the internal & external symptoms, based on the assignments and stories & experiences of those on the forum.
Yes I would recommend it! The programme has, in my opinion, benefits far beyond that of treating skin alone (like improved mindset for your entire life) and is therefore very much recommended. I was also very satisfied about the quality of the videos.
Raye, 24, Holland
“All the info I read and videos I watched from the program have been easy to understand, and very informative!”
Before the Academy, I felt very concerned that my skin was breaking out in cysts rather than just regular acne on a weekly basis.
I was pretty unsatisfied (and still and not quite there yet) with my life in areas like school, social life, fitness, diet, and spirituality, and relationship with myself. I had already grown used to my acne and do not think about it much when talking to people (it doesn’t get in the way of any relationships, and my friends are great and it doesn’t bother them, most of them have had acne anyway), but I am tired of my skin getting consistently worse!
My quality of life wasn’t that great half a year ago because of constant anxiety and mild depression I developed while being sick and isolated and thinking too much during that time… I’ve been healing emotionally from those years, and it has been going really well!
I no longer have constant anxiety, and I found out my social anxiety was actually just a fear of being vulnerable, and opening up to people, which is an issue I’ve have for a long time! The bootcamp helped me to dig deeper into those issues as well. 🙂 I had been reading posts on Tracy’s website for awhile, and when I saw the info about the Bootcamp and Academy, it could not have come up at a better time, as I am trying to change my life in many areas (slowly), such as health and fitness, and having a more positive attitude, better relationship with God, getting to sleep before 12 a.m., and getting out more to see friends!
All the info I read and videos I watched from the program have been easy to understand, and very informative. I learned the main problem I have is consistency. I need to have a regular sleep schedule, facial care “routine”, workout routine, eating plan.
Changing bad habits slowly to good habits is what works for me, rather than just switching my old ways to new ones immediately. Oh and getting back on track if I mess up by not beating myself up over a mistake, like eating too many cookies, or getting to sleep to late, or not working out for a week. And patience is pretty important because I don’t handle abrupt change well, so making these changes to my lifestyle slowly means that my skin will clear up slowly, so having that awareness to be patient with that process has been helpful.
I also have almost stopped picking my skin after reading some of Tracy’s information, it is hard! And lastly I learned how stress can affect you skin, I was wondering for the longest time how come even though I eat very healthy, I exercise regularly, I get 9.5 hours of sleep every night, I still always have acne?.
Now I know that the stress I deal with daily (some of it is just part of being a teenager haha) is the second number on cause of my acne besides sleep. I need to calm down!! Stop worrying, it doesn’t do anyone any good ever!! Also I should say, I do still have acne currently, and blackheads, but I notice a huge difference when sugar (and form of cane sugar) is gone from my diet, and I get to sleep earlier and have good quality sleep, and I exercise, and make time for fun 🙂

“Before the Bootcamp, I couldn’t have imagined checking my rear view mirror on the way to work and feeling confident about the way I look!”
Before the Bootcamp, I was completely fed up! I was at at the end of my tolerance for my acne. My skin was the worst it had been in a long time, after 12 months of recurring cystic acne appearing on my face every morning I honestly didn’t know what I could do to make it go away.
I had been 6 months in a new job where my image played a big part and had gotten myself into a very unhealthy cycle of picking, over washing and covering up with makeup.
Initially yes I had some hesitations – I thought there would be no way that I could make changes to my skin routine because I felt trapped in a cycle and didn’t want to make it worse.
One morning I realized that I was so out of control that I had to just make the jump, buy the program and trust that it would help. Price was initially a factor but in the long run, I have cut out all cosmetic cleansers, wear much less makeup and could never put a price on the freedom that has come with taking this course.
Once I had the first module and e-book I took a few days just to read over everything carefully. I had read a lot about some of the tips and tricks on the Love Vitamin website before but now I was going to take it very seriously. I grabbed a notepad and listed out everything that I thought might be affecting me physically (digestion, hormones, what kind of vitamins I could look into etc) and mentally (paying attention to what I was telling myself in the mirror each morning and what it was doing to my self esteem.)
I made a huge realization that my acne was the result of purely internal issues and that while I pay good enough attention to my body to stay healthy, I needed to change the way I looked after my heart to stay happy.
I put a lot of pressure on the ‘6 weeks’ that this program was running and while I saw notable changes in the first 2 weeks of taking new vitamins and cutting things from my diet, I still had a lot of bad habits.
When the 6 weeks was fully over and I was still wrestling with my acne, I felt defeated and almost gave up. If it weren’t for all the internal work I was doing during that time to stay positive, be persistent and visualize my skin looking fully radiant and clear I wouldn’t have had the confidence to keep going on the path to clear skin.
You could say that this course was the start of a journey for me, one that I hope to keep going on for the rest of my life.
It’s now February and besides the occasional tiny pimple, I am no longer battling with acne! I have changed the way I wash my face, no longer have the desire to pick and only wear a little bit of makeup when I need it.
I couldn’t have imagined checking my rear view mirror on the way to work and feeling confident about the way I look!
I also plan to travel overseas again soon and – unlike last time – I will never feel like staying indoors and missing out on exploring new cities everyday because of my acne. Maybe I’ll even take a few selfies this time… 🙂

“My skin is much better! Having the group is emotionally very helpful, and I feel more hopeful”
Before the Academy, I was struggling with my skin, as I had been for years. Trying to resign myself to having adult acne. It felt like resignation instead of acceptance. All along I felt like my body was doing this because something wasn’t right.
I had a little hesitation to sign up… I’d tried so many things. I was hesitant to spend more money on trying to clear my skin.
However, my skin is much better! I’m learning lots. I feel like I have a group I can ask questions to which is emotionally very helpful. I feel more hopeful.
I would recommend it, because I think the program covers LOTS of aspects of dealing with acne. I think anyone could find at least something useful.

“Without a community that was suffering through this together, I think I would have given up. I kept going and now it’s SO much better!”
I felt miserable about my skin before joining the Academy! I have been through Accutane 5 times (FIVE TIMES) and had begun a more holistic approach to skin care (the accutane was always a miracle, but the results never lasted) through essential oils that had my skin erupted in large lesions and itchy red skin like I had never experienced in my life.
I honestly have a great life but so much time and effort were focused on my skin and yet I was embarrassed to be seen in public…and I’m in health care!
Of course I had hesitations on joining! Nothing had ever worked for me. Nothing. In over 28 years of horrible skin/breakouts there was no relief except that from taking Accutane and even then only while I was on the medication. There seemed to be no long term solution and I was limiting my activities based on my skin.
Tracy’s program honestly have me the courage to like myself, to accept my skin (no matter how awful) and give myself the freedom to try to daily say kind words to myself, and offered me a solution that allowed me to take time back in my day. I didn’t have to wash my face 2-3 times a day (and shouldn’t!).
Suddenly, I could accept facing friends and the public with acne (not like you didn’t see the acne before under my makeup, but now I had permission, encouragement, even, to go bare faced and allow my skin time to heal. I never imagined my skin could feel like skin again!)
Tracy held my hand through her honest posts, her acknowledgment of the frustration and emotions and provided me with increased strength to accomplish goals I thought were outside of my reach. She made no overnight promises but understood and supported me through this marathon.
I’m grateful for all the topics, the recipes, the suggestions and the hope. You honestly helped me personally with my faith in God. I believed that God would show me a way to see myself the way He sees me. I’ve always been a great encourager to others but obviously was terrible with my own self talk.
As a result, my faith and my relationships are better, but without a community that was suffering through this together, I think I would have given up. I itched SO bad and my skin was SO painfully broken out and I kept going and now it’s SO much better.
I wake up in the morning and don’t ever wash my face (huge time savings!) I now use a q-tip with a little mineral powder to cover a few spots and in less than 5 minutes I can be out the door.
I’m also excited about camping….something I’ve avoided my whole life because of my skin and my previous need for running water and layers of makeup to start my day.
However, the greatest blessing is being prepared to help my 8 year old daughter through her future teen years.

“It was so helpful knowing that many other people are going through the same battle with me”
Before the Bootcamp / Academy, I was very unhappy with my skin and in result, my life was not going so well. It was a tug on my self esteem and my overall health.
My hesitations on joining? Well, any program that involves a fee, I question automatically- just because there are so many scams out there for things like this. But the website is very personal and seemed extremely helpful so I went for it.
Since joining the program I have mostly benefitted from gaining knowledge. There are many natural products that I know so much about now and having tried them, I have noticed a change in my skin. Right now my skin is the best it has been in a while and I hope to only go uphill!
It is also so helpful, in a backwards kind of way, to know that many other people are going through the same battle. Although I don’t wish it upon anyone.
I would recommend the program. Because it has been helpful for me and it is a broad program with many options for different people so I believe that anyone could benefit from it.

“My skin has improved so much! It’s softer and supple. My scars have faded and overall I feel much more confident about myself”
I was very unhappy with my skin before I joined your Bootcamp. I have had acne breakouts for the last two years and there was no way to curb them. These breakouts left bad scars which I found very difficult to treat.
Yes I was hesitant to join, because I had tried many different programs before and nothing seemed to work. So, I was apprehensive.
But my skin has improved so much! It’s softer and supple. My scars have faded and overall I feel much more confident about myself.
I would definitely recommend it to people since I benefited so much from it. It’s a program which is meant to cater to all kinds of people with skin issues.

“Since joining the Academy, I have gained confidence and no longer worry about how I look”
Before the Bootcamp / Academy, I was very frustrated with my skin and body. I wished for clear skin every day but was hopeless about getting it.
Since joining the program, I have accepted myself / my body. I have gained confidence and no longer worry about how I look. I didn’t follow the program exactly so my skin is about the same as it was before, but now I have the tools to use when I am ready.
Yes I would definitely this program! This program is so different from other acne treatments. It’s a radical change!

“I’ve suffered with acne for 28 years… only until I found you did I make the correct changes to change my life for the better!”
I felt like I was on a good path but wanted to know more about natural acne treatment so I joined the Bootcamp program… I was a little hesitant at first because I just got vertigo and was not in control of what I ate and could not exercise for months.
The best thing I got was the knowledge and support. Instead of feeling like I am alone with a pitted scarred face I get to daily read other people’s blogs in the forums and feel strength to move forward with or without pimples.
I would definitely recommend the program because I suffered for 28 years with acne and it was very depressing to go through alone.
I liked the recipes and advice from you the best. I have seen 7 dermatologists over the 28 years and only until I found you did I make the correct changes to change my life for the better!

“My skin is very clear & I feel much better about myself”
Before the Bootcamp / Academy, I was miserable with my skin & frustrated. I just wanted so badly to find “it”, aka…. the key to get rid of my acne. I would read a lot of online stuff and I felt there was no end to the amount of money I could spend in pursuit of clear skin. I was a product junkie.
Overall, I was unhappy with my skin which devastated my self esteem or self worth so that really took a toll on me & caused a desire to withdraw from life.
I was hesitant at first to join because I wasn’t sure if it would be just another waste of money. I had tried before to change my eating but never saw results in my skin.
Right now my skin is very clear. I feel much better about myself & I’m still continuing to work on the self love/self acceptance. I saw a great improvement just switching to the honey cleanser & going with the mindset less is definitely more.
I feel better in general from the dietary changes, less bloating & stomach issues also less systemic inflammation. I don’t feel the panicked “I just have to figure this out” obsession I used to.
I would definitely recommend this program. I think the combination of all the aspects is what makes this work. Not just diet, not just supplements, not just topical things but all that and especially the emotional part.
I thought it was great. I didn’t do it “perfectly” but Tracy helped me see sometimes the stress & worry over not doing it perfectly are worse than eating a few things you shouldn’t have now & then.

“You learn so much about everything, not only skin. For me, it’s a guide to being happy & successful”
Thanks to the Academy, I really feel like I am more at peace with myself … I learned to not focus on the things I don’t have now, and I have learned to enjoy the situation where I am and that I should accept myself where I am right now to get the things I like..
Others have told me that they respect me so much now that I am how I want to be and doing the things I like .. 🙂
I would absolutely recommend the Academy… you do learn so much about everything… not only about skin. For me, it’s a guide to being happy and successful.

“This is way better than feeling like you’re doing this alone”
Before the Bootcamp and Academy, I was a generally happy person but my skin was definitely my biggest insecurity. Especially because I work as a makeup artist there is a lot of pressure for me to look perfect.
I didn’t have any hesitations to join because I’ve been following your blog for a while and I know that I like your natural approach to skincare and lifestyle. The only thing that may have made me hesitate a tiny bit was the price… but my desire for clear skin greatly outweighed that.
My results? I used to only focus on food as the main source of my breakouts. Every time I broke out Id think “what did I eat?”. I realize now how much sleep and stress levels HUGELY effect my skin.
I never clued in before that basically the only times I ever break out is when I’m working on a stressful job (and therefore also not getting enough sleep either). I’m focusing way more on my own peace of mind now and have also taken up a regular yoga practice as well as just learning to love myself 🙂
Yes I would definitely recommend this program! Because this program will actually help you to get to the root of the problem. And I loved the “community” you brought together in the forums. Way better than feeling like you’re doing it alone 🙂

“Could not believe the results in my skin from taking the natural approach”
Before the Academy, I was coming off being on Antibiotic and hormone reducer as well as changing my birth control to an IUD. My skin totally freaked out and learned I also had intolerances to yeast, wheat and corn.
I knew I needed to do something … even considering going back on Accutane. My breakouts were only concentrated on my lower jaw and neck but very severe. So I started researching more holistic solutions … and found the Love Vitamin!!
Could not believe the results in my skin from taking the natural approach, especially some of the supplements worked so well and so quickly. I noticed how my skin calmed down and I had less big cysts and small pustules less frequently. 90 days out I have great results even if I have a setback with my diet!
I have recommend your Academy to others. I believe in my results and happy to share your site and philosophy!
