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 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 need to not only make diet and lifestyle changes (changes I 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 womxn (and mxn) 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 womxn 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 you to take the healing process into their own hands
- Highlight the incredible holistic healing modalities available to support you on our journey to glow
- Dig into the root cause of rosacea, psoriasis, eczema, and acne (instead of expecting a cream or medication to work miracles)
- Bring to your awareness the many toxins we come into contact everyday through our skin care, food, cleaning products, EMFs…
- Support you in making lifestyle and mindset shifts that will allow your skin to gently heal
- Create a safe and sacred space for womxn (and mxn!) to walk the path of healing in community
- Share the many incredible skin healing stories to inspire you to keep going on your journey to glow
To support you, I’ve created the Journey To Glow podcast, which features experts in the field of holistic medicine and green beauty, a Youtube channel where I’m going to share my own journey in healing rosacea but also my best tips to reduce stress, 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 a 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.)
I hope that this educational platform will be as usual to you as it has to me.

My Journey To Glow
Journey To Glow is a passion project born out of a strong desire to serve a community 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 womxn (although mxn are also welcome) could come together and share their stories, their discoveries, their insights and, most of all, feel supported on their journey to glow.
The conversation is happening on Instagram as well as in our private Facebook group and on live group coaching calls where we’ll explore an intuitive and practical approach to healing + how you can live your best life on your journey to glow. Be sure to sign up to the Glowletter to be invited to these Glow-gatherings.
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 beauty. I’m also talking to womxn, 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 fully heal your skin!
3. A Deep Dive Into Your Innate Wisdom
If there was one magic pill to heal our skin 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, intuition, Source, Life, the Inner Healer or the inner compass — many names that point to the same place: the space within where miracles happen.
Through my work with womxn 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 can happen.
