Hi, I'm Olena

A skin health coach, writer, entrepreneur & unshakable optimist dedicated to helping you get the clearest skin of your life.
A fast-walking optimist from the USSR, that got a mean case of acne and learned how to get clear skin through immense self-love. 

So despite being raised on organic meats and veggies (fresh and home grown errthang), I still got a beautiful case of pimples when I hit puberty.

My hormones were being crazy, plus I had a mild obsession with Canadian processed food like ketchup chips and chocolate chip cookies so it was no surprise that I was breaking out.
Not to mention I had no skincare routine to speak of. That’s right, I Olena, didn’t wash my face.
I thought I’d grow out of them, but when I didn’t I started looking for serious solutions to my little problem. 
I searched high and low, and tried every product you can imagine from Nivea, Proactiv, acne.org, Neutrogena, Clean & Clear, Oxi, Jamieson, St.Ives, Clarins, Guerlain, Dior, Nuxe, Paula’s Choice.. These are just the brands that I remember.
I tried everything SHORT of Accutane.
In fact my dermatologist prescribed it to me, and I even held the bright pills in my hand. I don’t know if it was intuition or divine intervention, but I decided that the long list of side effects weren’t worth it - and threw the pills away.
Years of research and experimentation later (14 years) I realize that there’s no perfect answer to clear skin, but I also know that it’s completely possible.

I'm here to serve you and make sure you have a place that cuts through all the noise and misinformation so that you can actually see clear skin on your beautiful face.


I love popping pimples. But I’d much prefer it if I didn’t have any to pop. As a notorious pimple popper, I know the only real way to stop popping pimples is to get clear skin.

So my work and this blog are devoted to helping you get CLEAR SKIN -- without Proactiv or Accutane. 

Pimples are so last year.
“I took Olena’s advice of eliminating dairy out of my diet and I've noticed my breakouts diminishing.

I also started to follow the routine [that Olena recommended] and my skin improved dramatically. I stopped having new breakouts and my skin looks so fresh and clear it's almost unbelievable. For me it was definitely life changing and now I'm very happy with my skin! Thank you Olena!”
