I went from saying “I feel broken and ugly,” to saying, “Thank you for helping me get back to ME.” 

Confidence. Happiness. Exuberance. Energy. 

Women today wear many hats. We cater to everyone’s needs. We put others before ourselves when we really need to put ourselves first. Truly, we want to be happy. We want to live a life we love. We want to feel good in our own skin. I know what it feels like to want to look your best and feel your best simultaneously.

Looking good is feeling good, but feeling good makes you look even better.

This is why I created Academy by Candy products. Our skin complexion can drastically affect the way we feel about ourselves.

Watch the video below for an introduction to Academy by Candy.

I’m always asked, “How can I have that beautiful, flawless, bright, glowing complexion that I see in magazines or on celebrities? What’s the secret?”

There is a secret. In the 1980s, I researched what could give us beautiful, youthful skin forever while holding on to my main philosophy: “Skin care should be simple, honest, ethical, and effective.” I found it and bottled it.

As a Registered Nurse spending most of my life as a plastic surgical assistant, cosmetic consultant, clinical cosmetologist, professional model, make-up artist, I, Candy Langan RN, have worked with thousands of women who were concerned about their appearance. And while they came to me for surface level fixes, I realized that ultimately, it was about these women feeling better about themselves, gaining confidence, and being happy. 

The Academy by Candy skin care line was born. Taking the secret ingredient we found (the natural Alpha Hydroxy Acid, glycolic acid, made from sugar cane) and specially formulating the products in our own lab (in New Jersey, USA), we created a medical skin care line clinically proven to reverse the aging process of the skin, while leaving the skin smooth and flawless.

I spent over 20 years educating and training physicians around the world on giving skin rejuvenation peels with glycolic acid, accompanied by my products. All of my patients have been receiving peels and using my products for the same amount of time. The results not only show youthful, clear skin, but come with a side of confidence, self-esteem, and an extra energetic bounce to their step that is remarkable.

“I never tire of hearing people say, “I don’t believe you are 67! You skin is so beautiful!” Academy products have been part of my routine, facial care for decades. Thank you, Candy, for providing us with affordable, effective beauty products.” -Janice Loschiavo

If you’ve looked in the mirror and seen aging skin, wrinkles, sun damage, acne/blemishes, skin discolorations, or age spots, Academy by Candy medical skin care products are here for you. 

Candy HS vs 2013

My High School Photo vs Now


Candy Langen Sattenspiel is an amazing person, and I am blessed to have her in my life. Not only is she a very accomplished RN and business woman, but she is a very compassionate and understanding person.

Having gone through two very serious spinal surgeries in seven months, I was struggling with my recovery and not feeling very good about myself. I didn’t know what I wanted or needed. I reached out to Candy and she was there for me. Not only has she always offered good advice, wonderful products and services, but more importantly, she gave of herself. She has the unique ability to combine professionalism with compassion and caring. Candy helped me through one of the darkest times of my life.

I went from saying “I feel broken and ugly”, to saying, “Thank you for helping me get back to ME”.

  4. Dear Mam
    I have blackheads, acne, open pores and spots on my face. Its been more than two years that i am going through this problem. Please suggest me as day by day i am becoming more face conscious and hiding myself from people outside home. I went to college yesterday after 2 months and i received a shocking comment from my mam. She said ” Are you suffering from chicken pox. What happened to your face”. ?
    Please suggest me something :)

    really enjoyed browsing your blog posts. In any case I will be subscribing to your rss feed and
    I hope you write again soon!

  6. Its like you read my mind! You appear to know so much about this, like you wrote the book in it or something.

    a little bit, but other than that, this is fantastic blog.

    A great read. I will certainly be back.

  7. I have just purchased your product and am hoping that I will look 10 years younger at our HS reunion!
    See you in October!

  8. Hi Candy,

    Can you please email me the exact list of ingredients for each product because I do not use skin care products with harmful chemicals such as aluminum, which is found in the brain of people with Alzheimer’s Disease and butylene glycol which goes into women’s blood stream and can cause birth defects.

    • Hi Jeannette, I have received your email and will be sending you a list of ingredients. But aluminum and butylene glycol are NOT in my products. Thank you and I will be contacting you soon. -Candy
