ADVERTORIAL FEATURE in Partnership With Imedeen Derma One
Having great skin has a direct impact on our confidence; we smile wider, we walk taller and we’re more experimental in our beauty and fashion choices. Effortlessly radiant, hydrated and plump skin is the ultimate goal for so many of us, so it’s no surprise that the global skincare market is set to reach $135 billion by 2021: that’s a lot of cleansing, toning and moisturising! More of us are expanding our beauty regimes, more mindful of what we put on our skin, and increasingly careful about how we remove products at the end of the day – because looking after your skin today will ensure you can reap the rewards in the years to come.
I’ve been fortunate enough to have been blessed with good skin, but in the last five or so years those telltale signs of ageing have lead me to be even more concerned with having a skincare regime that works hard and delivers what I need: an increase in hydration and radiance, and a reduction in fine lines. Those pots, tubes and bottles of great stuff definitely help me on my way, but what if you could start that process from within? Could a couple of tablets really help boost your regime and provide the skin we desire?
It’s no secret that I’m a bit of a supplement addict, turning to targeted ingredients to help me across different areas of my life; I take fish oils to help with dry eye, iron to help with energy, sea kelp to help with my thyroid and many more for other niggles and issues I look to support. So why should our skin be any different? That’s where Imedeen Derma One comes in…
Established in 1991, Imedeen are pioneers in beauty from within and the recipients of 22 awards and commendations from around the globe; their products are backed by science and proven by results, aiming to help women to look and feel their best while supporting a healthy appearance at every age. Their Derma One tablets are formulated to help maintain moisture balance and radiance which can diminish with the first signs of skin ageing, and I’ve been taking them for the past three months.
Imedeen is the world’s number one most studied skincare supplement, with Derma One having been examined in two randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled studies – plus an additional 12-month study. Data from these studies identified significant improvements in the appearance of photo-damaged skin, general skin condition and skin hydration for women taking Imedeen Derma One versus the placebo (and I’ve read the results!)
The Imedeen Derma One supplements contain a signature Marine Complex (boosts hydration, delays the skin’s ageing process, regulates oil production) alongside zinc (promotes healing and fights free radicals) and Vitamin C (supports collagen synthesis, helps to prevent and treat UV damage) delivering everything you need for radiant skin. Suitable for the 25-40+ age group, Derma One is super easy to take as you just pop two tablets into your mouth every morning alongside your breakfast; you should start to see results within 90 days, but some benefit from the ingredients earlier.
I always find it somewhat tricky to see the visible benefits of any kind of skincare product or supplement, as I look into the mirror multiple times a day; it’s hard to see the difference without photographic evidence or not looking in the mirror for weeks on end, but what I can tell you is that over the last three months my skin condition has undoubtedly stabilised. I haven’t woken up thinking ‘oh dear lord’ or wondering if somebody came and zapped all the moisture and radiance from my skin as I slept, nor have I had to tackle any overly oily or dry patches.
I’ve noticed that I need less makeup and have been skipping foundation in favour of CC creams or lighter bases, rather than layering on heavy products or relying on twelve different steps: I just need to even out my skin tone, pop a little concealer under my eyes and I’m pretty much good to go. A rather positive side effect has also been that my nails have become much stronger and grown much longer (after months of them breaking and chipping,) while my hair also feels fuller. My whole routine has become a touch more effortless, without me really realising, and that’s something I can totally get on board with.
I definitely think you either believe in taking supplements and are totally on board with how they can positively improve your beauty regime, or you see it as a faff and an investment too far; there’s not much of a grey area, but if you are one of those women who are open to taking daily supplements, Imedeen Derma One provides a simple and effective solution that just gives you a little boost. I’ve seen a positive impact, albeit a subtle one, so much that I’ll definitely continue to take these for the forseeable future.
We cleanse, we tone, we exfoliate, we mask, we moisturise, we treat, we massage… Why not give your skin a little boost from within too? The results could surprise you.
Imedeen Derma One is available from Boots, priced £36.99 for a two month supply; they’re currently on a 3 for 2 offer if you want to stock up!
