Image of Ornella Sacre

Hi! My name is Ornella

Dear visitor, welcome to The Sacred Closet. My name is Ornella Sacré, hence the name for my very own sacred space here on the Internet. I was born and raised in Brussels where, after some adventures abroad, I still reside to this day.

Professionally, I work as a Dermatology resident. What I love so much about my job, is that I’m able to devote myself every day to a mixture of complex pathology and aesthetics forming the path to healthy skin and soul, as well as to my love for mankind and the human psyche. I studied Medicine at the Catholic University of Leuven, and during these intense years of study this blog was a welcome creative outlet. I remember well how I used every spare moment to go out and create content, afterwards sharing every tiny bit with a wonderful audience.

Meanwhile, I'm 27 years old and I just love how I’m getting to know myself better with every day that passes. My friends and family describe me as a daring, entertaining and somewhat out of my mind go-getter. I feel the most energetic when interacting with people, when using my creative potential, when brainstorming on valuable content and when being a motivational, empowering speaker.

According to what I heard, writing a letter to your past self is even a common form of therapy. It makes space for self-reflection, acceptance, and healing with wisdom th...

The saying 'bloom where you have been planted' never really applied to me. As much as I am grateful for the initial ground where I got the chance to grow, there's nothing I love more than the rush of discovering unknown territory. If there's anything I learned during these first two years as a de...

In my daily practice, I receive questions on a daily basis about what kind of sunscreen won't cause break-outs in oily skin. More even, I figured it's a specific concern bothering not only patients suffering from acne, but also non-acne patients. Why is sunscreen so important, especially when you h...
