One of the most common questions I get asked is, "What can I do to make my skin look better?"
The answer, unsurprisingly, isn't a simple one and there’s no 'quick fix'.
There are a lot of things that influence the quality of your skin, a big one being your lifestyle.
Your skin's survival depends on things like if and how much you smoke or drink alcohol, and whether you protect your skin from sun damage or not.
The frequent use of serums and moisturisers will also help to keep your skin looking younger and more vitalised but from my personal experience, what does wonders for tired-looking skin is a collagen supplement.
As a facial aesthetic practitioner, I am always researching and looking for the best evidence-based products, and if I can, I will test them myself. When it comes to collagen supplements, I have done my research and for me, the best product is Totally Derma.
Totally Derma is a clinically proven anti-ageing drink that works from the inside. It was originally used as a medical supplement for osteoarthritis – and one of the side effects that people started to notice was denser, firmer and more hydrated skin and joints.
Totally Derma not only slows down the appearance of fine lines and promotes the production of collagen and elastin, but it also includes HA (Hyaluronic Acid), which helps to keep the skin hydrated. It also boasts antioxidants and vitamins to promote healthier, more youthful-looking skin.
After just three months of continual use, you could start seeing great results – but the longer you drink it, the more visible the results will be.
I drink it every night before going to bed because it’s at night that my skin repairs itself. I started seeing a difference in my skin after two weeks; it felt much smoother. After about six weeks, I also noticed that my hair and nails felt stronger.
Your skin deserves some tender loving care to look its best – a healthy lifestyle, with the added boost of Totally Derma, can leave your skin looking and feeling much healthier.
