I'm obsessed with health and beauty supplements- in fact, I take quite a lot of them (multi-vit, CLA, L-Carnitine) as the skin and hair can drastically be improved with their help (and of course- with a good diet). For the past couple of months, I've been taking the Deluxe Collagen supplements by Regime London and they are brilliant.
The amount of money I've spent on beauty supplements that have proved to be unsuccessful would probably shock you as my skin is incredibly sensitive and started breaking out the next day. But these supplements by Regime truly are amazing. I was sent the first pack from Regime London's PR company, but they worked so well that I had to go and purchase a second pack myself.
I was very careful at first (as always with supplements) and rather than taking a recommended number of two capsules twice a day, I started off with only taking one twice a day. As I experienced no side effects or breakouts, I upped the dosage to two capsules twice a day. Regime London advises that you can take a maximum dose of eight capsules a day for optimum results so at the moment, I'm taking six a day- three in the morning and three in the evening.
I'm not going to lie and say I noticed results within a day, because I didn't. Supplements take time to work, and I started to see positive results after about 2 weeks. I have a couple of mild acne marks on my right cheek that were starting to go away thanks to Kiehl's Midnight Recovery Concentrate and Corrective Dark Spot Solution, but not as fast as I'd hoped. Every other supplement brand broke me out so there was no point in taking them, and relying on skincare products was all I could do to help.
However, the Deluxe Collagen Supplements have worked wonders as the marks have dramatically been clearing up. I don't suffer from mild acne anymore but the occasional PMS pimple is still a problem! What I've noticed with the supplements is that these pimples don't stick around for long at all anymore, and any new marks from these pimples tend to disappear very quickly. Additionally, I've found that my skin is generally a lot softer since taking the supplements.
I highly recommend the Deluxe Collagen Supplements, and will definitely continue to use them. They're priced at £21.99 for 120 capsules, but they're currently on offer at Superdrug where you can grab them for £14.99 HERE.
