Imedeen Oral Skincare Journey - #1

We are constantly being bombarded by the latest skincare which most of the times involves a cream. However, last week we were introduced to a new different concept. Oral skincare.  Imedeen supplements are designed for different age groups and are aimed to help combat aging from within. These tablets can be taken as extra supplements with no side affects associated. However, always consult with your doctor if you are pregnant or on specific medications. 

A couple of weeks back we were introduced to Imedeen in a Launch which took place in Palazzo De Piro in Mdina. We were presented with the science behind the brand and its products while sipping some sparkling rose and nibbling on some canapes.

There are basically 3 ranges available in Malta, in local pharmacies.  

 1. Imedeen Derma One

This range is aimed for the 25+ which is when the first signs of ageing appear. These are mainly aimed for better hydration and radiance. These tablets work in the deep dermal layer where the creams do not reach.  This range features the exclusive Marine Complex, vitamin C and zinc, which protect the cells from oxidative stress and supports normal collagen formation and helps maintain healthy skin.  When taking 2 tablets daily, skin quality is improved, radiance is increased and moisture balance is improved making the skin on face and body feel smoother, softer and more supple.  
2. Imedeen Time Perfection 

This range is aimed for people aged 40 and above. It helps combat the visible signs of aging. It is made up of a Marine Complex which is rich in proteins and polysaccharide complexes which are naturally found in the skin's supporting tissues. This is the LycoPhenoGS Forte complex which is made up of lycopen, which is derived from non genetically modified tomatoes, grape seed extract, vitamin C and Zinc.  When taking 2 tablets daily, the skin's quality and moisture balance is improved making the skin softer, smoother and more supple. The cells are protected from oxidative stress. The tablets will also contribute to the normal formation of collagen.  

3. Imedeen Prime Renewal

This range is aimed for people of 50 years of age. When taking 4 daily, the tablets help combat the effects of ageing that occur around menopause, when the skin looses its moisture and becomes more vulnerable to free radical damage and age spots. Moreover, fine lines become deeper as the skin looses the underlying fat.   The range features the exclusive Marine Complex with zinc and the advanced protein complex ViTea which is a blend of white tea, lycopene, grape seed extract, Vitamin C and E. Chamomile has been added to the evening tablets.  These tablets maintain the skin's firmness and contribute to the normal collagen formation making the skin softer, smoother and more supple whilst reducing the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles. They also improve the quality of the skin and moisture balance while protecting the cells from oxidative stress. 

Me and Lara from Every Beauty Addict's Bible were cordially invited to a skin analysis. You can view a short demonstration of the procedure here. The specialist, Allison, explained how the procedure is carried out with an ultrasound machine analyser.

From the analysis my skin density was around the 30% which in all fairness is a bit low. This is mainly attributed to dehydration and stress as well.

In the above pictures, the cross in the red area shows my skin density. In the bottom picture, the brown spots indicate the amount of collagen present in the skin.

In a months time I am to perform another skin analysis to see any improvements in the skin's collagen. It is advised to take Imedeen for a minimum of 90 days. Having said that, visible signs can be seen after only one month. This is backed up by clinical studies which show such results as can seen below.

I am so excited for the next update as I this is quite of a new concept which I am quite intrigued to try. 

I shall see you in a months time with an update!



PS. I was provided with one months supply to try out, for PR purposes, which I am going to continue for the upcoming months. However, as always, I will give my honest and unbiased opinions.
