Why I Created
Journey To Glow
Caroline Frenette Founder
I’m Caroline (hi!), the founder of Journey To Glow.
I’ve had rosacea for 15+ years, and 2 years ago, I decided it was time I do something about it.
After spending thousands of dollars on treatments and expensive beauty products — and being nowhere near my goal of having clear, radiant skin — I realized that, in order to heal what turns out is a complex skin imbalance, I’d have to become a detective so that I could make informed and empowered choices that work for me. I would have to dig deep and connect the many dots so that I could truly understand what my skin was trying to tell me.
As I consulted with naturopaths, functional medicine doctors, aestheticians, nutritionists and health coaches, I learned so much not only about skin health but also about skin care, gut health, the link between heavy metals and skin, and the importance of proper liver function.
I quickly realized that healing rosacea wasn’t going to be a straight path but a beautiful winding road filled with learning and growth. To heal my skin, I would not only need to make diet and lifestyle changes (changes I had resisted making) but also learn to love myself and my skin in the process.
Leaning on my intuition was also going to be key so that I could make empowered choices that were in alignment with my inner healer.
Needless to say, it’s been a journey. But surprisingly, it’s been a profoundly nurturing and enlightening one!
Through my research, I realized that there are millions of women who suffer from rosacea, eczema, psoriasis, acne, perioral dermatitis… and I’ve been hearing from many that they suffer from depression and struggle to love themselves. This breaks my heart as I know that self-love is a crucial component of healing.
Many women also shared their frustration with traditional medicine and how using toxic chemical creams had done more harm than good. They were looking for a natural alternative, but were unsure where to start…
Suddenly, a deep calling woke up in me, and I knew I had to use my skills as a coach and online business strategist to put together a support system for women who, like me, wanted to get their glow back and live their best lives.
And Journey To Glow was born…
My heartfelt intention
My intention for Journey to Glow is to:
- Empower women to take the healing process into their own hands
- Highlight the incredible holistic healing modalities available to support you on your journey to glow
- Dive deep into finding the true root cause of rosacea, psoriasis, eczema, acne, (or any skin imbalance) instead of expecting a cream to work miracles
- Become aware of the toxicity of mainstream skin care and beauty products
- Feel supported in making lifestyle and mindset shifts that will allow your skin to gently and beautifully heal
- Create a safe and sacred space for women to walk the path of healing together and share resources and tips that have impacted their health positively
- Share women’s skin healing stories that will inspire and show what is truly possible when we commit and don’t give up on the journey to glow
So, to support this community, I’ve created the Journey To Glow podcast, which features experts in the field of holistic medicine and green beauty. I’ve also created a Youtube channel where I’m going to share my own journey in healing rosacea but also my best tips to reduce stress, and how to tap into your intuition and awaken your inner healer. We are, after all, magical beings with unlimited potential and my job is to remind you of that.
As a Capricorn with many planets in Sagittarius, I believe in a practical, down-to-earth approach to healing.
But I also believe that healing is very much an inside-out job, so unless we’re willing to look within for the true causes of this skin imbalance, we’re never going to experience full and complete healing.
So, whatever is buried deep down in your unconscious (old hurts, old wounds, old beliefs) will have to be brought into the light to be shifted and transformed completely.
Understanding the root cause of stress (and how to eliminate it) is also a crucial part of the conversation. (Turns out that, as a certified Advanced Transformative coach, this is my expertise. So you’re in good hands.)
My intention for you is to feel empowered, to remind you that beauty is an inside-out job — that you’re already beautiful no matter what your skin looks like! — and that you can make simple but impactful changes that will enable you to look and feel AMAZING.

My Journey To Glow
Journey To Glow is a passion project born out of a strong desire to serve a community of women who, like me, are looking for natural solutions to heal their skin.
What you can expect from Journey To Glow
I wanted to create a place where women could come together and share their journey, their discoveries, their insights and most of all, to feel supported on their journey to glow.
The conversation is happening on Instagram but stay tuned for a private Facebook group as well as live group coaching calls where we’ll explore an intuitive and practical approach to healing and how you can live your best life on your journey to glow.

2. Trustworthy Allies
On the Journey To Glow podcast, I’m interviewing Skin Healing Experts and thought leaders in the field of holistic medicine. I’m talking to green beauty experts, skin coaches and makeup artists that have made the switch from toxic to clean makeup. I’m also talking to women, like you, who have inspiring transformational stories. My intention is to show you the myriad of options we now have to heal our skin naturally from the inside-out and to empower you to make the lifestyle changes that will help you get your glow back!
3. A Deep Dive Into Your Innate Wisdom
If there was one magic pill to heal our skin trust me, I would have found it by now. But the truth is that healing and transformation happen when we’re willing to look deep within ourselves for guidance and answers. That’s why your journey to glow is unique to you. It’s a journey of self-discovery and self-love.
As a certified Advanced Transformative Coach, I’ve spent the last 15 years exploring the limitless power each of us holds within. I call this wisdom, innate wellbeing, intuition, Source, Life, inner Healer or the inner compass. Many names that point to the same place: the space within where miracles happen.
Through my work with women around the world I’ve come to see — again and again — that when we’re willing to tune into and listen to our inner guidance, magic happens.
So at the beginning of each podcast episode, you’ll have the opportunity to join me in an inner journey, a 5-minute coaching session where you’ll be invited to explore a topic that will trigger insights.
