YOUNG actress Andrea Brillantes said something very insightful during her launch as the ambassador of Reiken and Kenzen Beautéderm Health Boosters, a line of health supplements from Filipino lifestyle brand Beautéderm Corp.

She pointed out that Gen Z, a generation to which she belongs, suffered mentally and emotionally during the pandemic. “So many of us had insomnia. Studying and working online, being cooped inside the house, not seeing other people, the whole situation was difficult,” said the 18-year-old actress.

It’s not surprising that Andrea’s favorite in the new FDA-approved, made-in-Japan line she is endorsing is the Reiko Valeriana Officinalis + L-theanine (Sleep Enhancer) SomNest, which contains Valeriana Officinalis extracts, 98 percent L-theanine and GABA (Gamma Aminobutyric Acid) that are all in perfect combination to treat insomnia. She also takes Kenzen Vitamin C + Zinc (Immunity Booster) Z Plus, which contains Vitamin C or ascorbic acid, as well as Zinc that are necessary for the growth, development and repair of all body tissues. Other favorites are the Reiko Vitamin D +Grape Seed (Sun Protection Enhancer) PrestoSol, which contains Vitamin D, Grape Seed extracts, Amla extracts and Rosemary extracts; and the Kenzen BioDopa + Rosemary (Energy Booster) VivaGen, which contains Mucuna Pruriens extracts, Rosemary, and Maca and Guarana extracts, which helps in lowering stress and help maintains physical and psychological vitality.

The line also includes Kenzen Bacopa Monniera + Centella Asiatica (Memory Booster) MeMax, which contains Phosphatidylserine, Bacopa Monniera, Centella Asiatica and Lutein, as well as Silicone Dioxide Starch, Stearic Acid, and Calcium for boosting brain function, enhancing memory function and preventing memory loss. Reiko Coffee Bean + Salacia (Diet Enhancer) Slimaxine contains Coffee Bean extracts, Salacia extracts and Ginger extracts, while Reiko Andrographis + Ginger (Digestion Enchacer) Fitox, contains Andrographis and Ginger Plus Curcumin that helps prevent flu viruses from binding to the cells of the body and acts as a natural appetite suppressant while regulating sugar levels, respectively.

Other ways that Andrea employs to help reduce her anxiety is by going on a social-media detox once in a while and taking up a new hobby. She also keeps in touch with her friends via messages and phone calls.

“The pandemic has taught me that it’s very important for me to keep my mind and body healthy,” said Andrea. The Reiko and Kenzen Beautéderm Health Boosters were launched a day before the birthday of Beautéderm Corp. Rea Anicoche Tan’s birthday. She wanted it to be a happy and festive occasion because November 2020 was very difficult for her due to the pandemic, just as it was for many Filipinos. The launch is also part of the Pampanga-based brand’s 12th anniversary celebration.

“During my birthday week last year, so many of my staff got Covid and it was scary and overwhelming. That’s when I thought it would be good to have a line of health boosters so, yes, we have been working on Reiko and Kenzen for over a year now,” said Tan.

“I’m very proud to represent Beautéderm Corp. So many of my close friends are already ambassadors of the brand so it kind of feels like home,” said Andrea.

“I welcome Andrea to the Beautéderm Corp. family and we are one in the belief that we should take care of not just of our bodies but our minds, as well,” said Tan.
