Benefits of CoQ10 for Skin
While naturally occurring Co-Enzyme Q10 (CoQ10) can be digested for energy, it can do a number of things in skincare products too. In terms of skincare, it's usually in toners, moisturizers, and under-eye creams, promising to help even skin tone and reduce the appearance of fine lines.
- Energizes cell activity: This energy is needed to repair damage and make sure the skin cells are healthy. Active skin cells get rid of toxins easily and can make better use of nutrients. When your skin ages, all these processes slow down, causing dull and sallow, wrinkled skin.
- Reduce sun damage: The skin is damaged by exposure to the sun's UV rays, which provides a source of free radicals, which can be damaging to the cells' DNA. The potent antioxidant function of CoQ10 helps it to protect the skin at the molecular level from the damaging effects of the sun and from damage by free radicals. It works by decreasing the collagen degradation of skin and interdicting the damage caused by photo-aging.
- Even out skin tone: CoQ10 works to block tyrosinase, which helps with the production of melanin, which means that CoQ10 can help fade and prevent dark spots.
- Stimulate collagen and elastin production: CoQ10 supports the body's ability to produce collagen and elastin.
- Replenishes skin cells: More energized skin cells mean healthier skin cells. Adding CoQ10 to your skincare may allow your cells to better utilize other nutrients, leading to healthier skin overall.
- Helps reduce damage of free radicals: Since CoQ10 aids in cell activity, it also means that your cells can be more efficient in flushing out toxins like free radicals and healing the damage they cause.
- Reduces the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines: This ingredient helps your body produce collagen and elastin, which can reduce the appearance of fine lines.
It helps to fight the biochemical and environmental triggers known to accelerate skin ageing, releasing powerful enzymes, skin-smoothing and helps fortify the skin with anti-pollution fighting antioxidants technology ahead of next-day exposure.
