Thank you to Face Fit patient, Toshi for allowing us to share her skin health journey with you.
A Case Study – Targeting Pigmentation, Breakouts and Gut Imbalance with Face Fit
Name: Toshi Fitzgerald
Toshi is a 22-year-old female who started visiting Face Fit due to a lack of consistency in her skin health. Over the recent years, she has struggled with on and off breakouts, mainly on the cheeks, chin and jawline, as well as skin sensitivities. Although Toshi grew up thinking that her skin was oily, we were able to identify during a Skin Consultation that she actually had dry skin. She began her skin journey seeking a prescribed skincare plan and is now an ongoing skin treatment and naturopathy client. In the short time that Toshi has been working alongside the Face Fit team to enhance her skin and gut health, she has noted significant improvements!
- Acne outbreaks
- Food intolerances manifesting on the skin
- Dry skin
- Acne scarring
- Dull and uneven complexion
Face Fit’s Approach
Toshi has worked with Ash, Evie and Hannah to achieve her existing results. Her journey began with a Skin Consultation, where Ash was able to uncover that whilst a prescribed skincare plan was critical in tending to her concerns, that the root of her skin issues was most likely the result of an imbalance in the gut.
Toshi was recommended The Wellness Within Club membership, which she happily joined! With Evie, our in-house naturopath, Toshi embarked on a personalised 5-week dietary plan with food guidelines and prescribed supplements.
Toshi has since also worked with Hannah to expand her at-home skincare routine and book a Lactic Acid Peel to help target stubborn pigmentation from acne scarring.
Skincare Routine and Products
Toshi’s current skincare routine consists of products catered to sensitive skin with the overall goal of achieving a brighter and even complexion that is resilient to breakouts whilst helping to prevent pigmentation.
Aspect Dr Mild Clean: Gentle foaming cleanser, great for everyday use for sensitive skins.
Aspect Dr Complete Pigment Plus: A serum prescribed to lighten scarring, brighten and minimise future pigment formation.
Aspect Dr Exfol A Plus: Vitamin A helps enhance the results of the Complete Pigment Plus, promoting cell turnover to lighten uneven skin tone and pigmentation.
Aspect Dr Hydra Shield With Zinc: A fast absorbing, soothing, lightweight moisturiser to delivery hydration and skin healing benefits.
Aspect Fruit Enzyme Mask: Great exfoliation product for sensitive skins looking to promote hydration and an overall brighter complexion.
Results and Transformation
With consistent use of skincare products and following her naturopathy diet plan, Toshi’s skin is now consistently hydrated, bright, luminous and clear. In addition, she has experienced noticeable improvement to her quality of sleep and energy levels. Whilst occasional breakouts do still occur, this is easily narrowed down to changes in hormones or diet
A note from the patient
I’ve honestly wanted to visit the team at Face Fit for a Skin Consultation for years but have constantly pushed it to the bottom of my to do list. This year, after experiencing the worst skin reaction/acne I have ever had, I decided it was finally time to prioritise my skin and gut health.
I have had a few friends and family members visit Face Fit and have only ever heard incredible things, so I had no doubts that the team would be able to help me on my skin journey. From my very first appointment with Ash, to my regular appointments with Evie and skin treatments with Hannah, I have been extremely impressed every step of the way. There is no gate keeping with these girls, they are so open to sharing all of their knowledge to help to you achieve your goals and understand why you’re experiencing your concerns.
Growing up in a house full of girls, I have had a skincare routine for as long as I can remember. Previously, I have picked out my own products based on what’s popular, recommendations from public figures and using whatever my sisters used (thinking we had the same skin type when we don’t). After speaking with the team at Face Fit, I know realise what a waste of time and money I’ve spent picking my own skincare, and the great results I’ve seen in just a few months of following this prescribed skincare plan proves it!
I will 100% continue to visit Face Fit for years to come to treat my skin concerns.
