You're not alone, if you've ever felt like...

Font Awesome Icons

You're spending hours researching and buying products, but there's no improvement or the breakouts are worse.

You've tried everything under the sun from the latest, greatest product an influencer touts to random infomercial products, or maybe even taking your child to the local dermatology office ... but the breakouts are still staring everyone in the face.

You're done wasting money... maybe even arguing with your teen... trying to find the answer to breakouts.

Moms, you don't have to make financial sacrifices that strain the household budget to prioritize your teen's acne treatments.

But you have a problem on your hands...

  • Confusing Messaging

    There are SO many products... and even more marketing.

  • Incomplete Care

    You'll rarely get a complete written skincare routine at an insurance visit.

  • Carefree Teens

    Teens totally not worried about scarring from breakouts

  • TikTok

    Teens totally into trying allllll the skincare trends. Not to mention asking you for the funds.

My Goal For You:

Set the foundation for lifelong healthy skin habits with a simple, effective skincare plan.

  • Prevent Scarring

  • Less breakouts over 8 weeks

  • Save money and stop guessing which products to buy

  • 3-step skincare routine for your teen's skin type

  • Raise a confident teen/pre-teen

I can 100% relate to the frustration and confusion you have now

In 2017, I was fresh out of PA school...

working in a derm clinic with mostly teenage acne patients with Alabama Medicaid insurance, which only covered antibiotic pills.

but acne treatment aims to layer topical and systemic treatments and then transition to topical only.

Like you, I would do *anything* for my teen patients to feel confident in their skin.

Since topical treatments weren't covered by insurance, I had to get creative on how to get my patients the treatment/routine they needed for clear skin.

I created handouts with drugstore products paired in a 3-step system: Cleanse, Treat, and Moisturize.

And guess what?? It worked!

At my patients' return visit in 6-8 weeks, their skin had improved, even after antibiotic pills were discontinued.

Sometimes, we even avoided antibiotic pills altogether!

It wasn't until I finally discovered that products paired on purpose that patients with

✔ all skin types
✔ skin tones

achieved clearer skin to confidently face middle school and high school without worrying about their complexions.

So, I created this course, Teen Skincare 101 to share the skincare portion of an insurance visit I give to all of my teenage acne patients as a dermatology PA.

*but with way more in depth information*

I would typically charge $997 for something this big, but....


  • Is this for my teen/pre-teen?

    I created this as a MUST-HAVE guide for all preteens and teens since skincare is the foundation of long-term clear skin whether a patient is on prescriptions or not. A complete, custom skincare routine often decreases the need for antibiotics, especially in the long term.

  • Should I enroll in the Teen Skincare 101 Course or book a 1:1 session with Sydney?

    Great question! While both options offer valuable guidance, the Teen Skincare 101 Course delves into more comprehensive and detailed information that may not be covered in a single 1:1 session due to time constraints. The course provides a wealth of knowledge and resources for long-term skincare success. If your teen is struggling with acne, whether on prescriptions or not, I highly recommend the course because it equips you with extensive information. In some cases, you may still benefit from scheduling a 1:1 session or seeking further assistance at your local dermatology clinic as a follow-up to the course. Rest assured, we're here to support you every step of the way!

  • Does this guarantee clear skin?

    This course does guarantee a complete, custom skincare routine, which sets the foundation for clear skin and is not usually provided at an insurance visit. The truth is many teens need prescriptions. After 6-8 weeks of implementing these steps, if you aren’t seeing gradual improvement (fewer breakouts, less often that are less inflamed and clear quicker), I recommend scheduling with your local dermatology office or considering a 1:1 consult with me for custom adjustments. The skincare routine will serve as a foundation for your and your teen's skin health either way.

  • How fast can results be expected?

    Gradual improvement over 6-8 weeks is the goal for treating breakouts based on the skin cell life cycle. It takes 3-4 months to see the results we really, really want (so much like starting a workout routine!). This is the same timeline for prescription treatment as well.

  • How long will this take to complete?

    The great thing about the Teen Skincare 101 Course is that it is designed to be completed at your own pace. You have the flexibility to go through the course modules and lessons at a speed that works best for you. Whether you prefer to dive in and complete it in a shorter timeframe or spread it out over a longer period, the choice is yours. We understand that everyone has different schedules and commitments, so we want to ensure that you can comfortably navigate the course and absorb the valuable information at a pace that suits you best.

  • Where will I buy products, and how much should I expect to spend?

    You'll receive links to the best products at the drugstore in a google sheet that I update regularly because I use these links when I meet with teens 1:1. Plus, there are a few that don't have drugstore dupes, so I give links to the recommended products at both price point options. (I know sometimes we need a product ASAP, so knowing which to purchase at the drugstore is key!) Still, each product ranges from about $14-$40 and lasts 4-6 months. I'm a believer that skincare doesn't have to be expensive.

  • How will I receive the course?

    Once you purchase, you’ll have immediate access to our online course platform to create an account with your preferred email and password then it will take you to the portal where you can access the course instantly.

  • Is this for me if I have prescriptions I'm using?

    The course information complements prescriptions, but for best success, I typically recommend a 1:1 skincare consult to address the complete picture. I would always ask the prescriber which cleanser and moisturizers they prefer first. If you aren't getting a great answer, I created this course to fill that gap- because I know the time constraints of treating patients in clinic, but I've also been the patient looking for answers and getting nowhere.
