Face Reality Skincare founder Laura Cooksey looks forward to another 15 years of helping people achieve clear skin.

Face Reality Skincare will be celebrating its 15th anniversary in September 2020. The brand helps individuals suffering from acne with its adaptive approach, unique to every individual, and an effective combination of safe, premium formulations. Face Reality achieves this through its clinic in San Leandro, California and a nation-wide network of certified estheticians.

The Face Reality process coaches clients on lifestyle and dietary choices, as well as providing cruelty-free, premium skin care products.

In 2005, Laura Cooksey co-founded Face Reality Acne Clinic where she worked on the Face Reality Acne Treatment Protocol and skin care line. As someone who struggled with acne, Cooksey was called to action to help other acne sufferers achieve clear skin with a holistic treatment plan.

Before long, other estheticians took notice of the incredible results Cooksey was achieving in-clinic and began inquiring about her secret for treating acne. From this came Face Reality’s comprehensive online training course. Fifteen years later, Face Reality boasts over 1,000 Face Reality Acne Experts changing lives and growing their businesses across the United States.

“I get inspired by seeing how many skin care professionals are now successfully treating acne using our protocol,” Cooksey said. “What I love about that is so many more people who are suffering from acne are getting the help that they need to get clear. With the plethora of misinformation out there about acne, it’s wonderful that people truly have knowledgeable skin care professionals to turn to in treating their acne.”
