International model Georgia Gibbs was struggling with adult acne after complications from surgery – and subsequent rounds of antibiotics – triggered her inflamed skin in 2018.

The Australian-born glamazon invested in the help of skin clinician Gry Tomte, the owner of Melbourne-based HUD Skin + Body, and less than a year later she was zit free and making her return to the catwalk.

‘To get her skin clear Georgia has been the perfect client, embarking on a combination of internal gut work, seeing a naturopath, and of course listening to diet recommendations to reduce inflammation and acne triggers from within,’ Gry told FEMAIL.

‘Georgia also had regular DMK Enzyme Treatments and prescribed home care.

Enzyme Therapy is one of our favourite signature treatments. 

‘Utilising our body’s own wonder, the lymphatic system, it can be combined with any other modality to rebuild skin function.’

‘I had to cut out all grains, preservatives, caffeine, sugar and fructose to reset my gut lining,’ Georgia has said previously.

‘I would wake up and have a smoothie with spinach, kale, celery, cucumber, coriander, almond milk, gastrointestinal powder and a collagen-based protein.

It took Georgia many months to finally see a difference on her skin (pictured in September 2018 to January 2019)

‘Then avocado, eggs and greens for lunch.

I would make a huge salad with Apple Cider Vinegar Diet cider vinegar and a soup for dinner.

‘I followed this for three months because consistency is key.’

Gry would normally do an enzyme treatment on a client before recommending peels, micro IPL (intense pulsed light) and lasers because these added extra only treat the surface level of skin. 

So what else can you do if you are suffering from spots?

Gry said the main causes of acne are fast cell turnover, sluggish or thickened oil, using products with the wrong PH (too alkaline) and inflammation.

So instead of applying glycolic and salicylic acids it pays to know what is happening internally in your body.

‘The gut is where hormones are produced and as we know, hormones are strongly linked to the factors that cause acne formation,’ she said.

Instead of reaching for the nearest antibiotic try and heal your gut with supplements like the Regul8 Digestive Tuneup, which will restore healthy function to the area. 

Avoid dairy, refined sugars and carbs, which are high in insulin growth factors, and don’t forget to include omega 3, 6 and 9 in your diet.

‘These good fats are a great way to reduce inflammation and help thin the oil out to a much less irritating and free flowing oil that doesn’t get clogged so easily,’ she said.
