What does this mean for you?
True beauty starts on the inside. We’ve all heard that before, right? It’s true! Holistically Haute teaches women how to have glowing skin and healthy, balanced minds and bodies by:
- Choosing fresh, whole, organic foods
- Managing daily stress
- Incorporating lifestyle upgrades that provide the body and soul with positive energy and nourishment
Beauty is skin deep. We’ve heard that one too! Holistically Haute strives to provide education, ingredient and product recommendations, as well as tips for a healthful skincare and beauty regimen that:
- Uses safe, organic, non-toxic ingredients
- Works with the functions of the skin, not against it
- Promotes and protects healthy skin without stripping it of its natural barrier or causing unnecessary inflammation
- Only includes spa treatments that are relaxing and enjoyable–not risky or invasive

Holistically Haute was born out of Rachael’s own longtime struggle with severe acne and the self and body image issues that came with it. She was completely fed up after many frustrating years of trial and error with a myriad of over-the-counter and prescription medications, as well as professional and medical-grade skincare products and spa treatments. The only products that managed the acne either contained harsh, toxic ingredients; or cost the equivalent of a monthly luxury car payment. However, whenever she’d stop using the products, the acne always returned–she later learned that this was because the actual cause of the acne was never addressed.
Finally, in an effort to lose weight gained following her second pregnancy, Rachael decided that it was time to try a completely different, and unconventional (as thought by many) approach. By cleaning up her diet, doing some serious soul searching, and making lifestyle adjustments, Rachael lost 80 pounds and completely cleared up the acne. Her skin looks better now at 35 years old than it has in her entire adult life. Best of all, she no longer needs to use expensive or potentially dangerous skincare products to keep the acne away. She was so moved by her own experience that she made it her mission to help other women who have current skin, self, or body image issues use safe and natural methods to look and feel amazing inside and out.
