What is coenzyme Q10?
It is a natural substance in the body similar to a vitamin. The body makes CoQ10 and our cells use it for growth and maintenance. CoQ10 also works as an antioxidant - these are beneficial in protecting the body and skin from harm and the effects of aging. CoQ10 is also used as a supplement to treat other medical conditions.
Although the body can produce CoQ10 naturally, production slows down as we age, just when we need it most to fight off the effects of aging. When our cells slow down in making CoQ10, we also slow down in producing collagen and elastin. Collagen and Elastin are vital with giving skin firmness and flexibility. The reduction in collagen and elastin results in the visible signs of aging such as wrinkles and droopy skin.
Anti-Aging Properties of CoQ10
By adding CoQ10 to your skincare routine, you are effectively getting a double dose of goodness. CoQ10 helps boost antioxidant properties that help fight off environmental and aging damage. It also helps boost in the ability to produce collagen and elastin, resulting in an effective one-two punch of anti-aging power!
CoQ10 is a mild supplement that is naturally produced by the body. As with all skincare products, it should be tested on a small area of skin to see how you react. CoQ10 pairs very nicely with Hyaluronic acid to create a great combination of hydration and anti-aging properties.
