If you’re worried about wrinkles, sagging skin and generally seeking to make your skin look younger, then don’t miss out on Q10 skincare.
What is Q10? Q10 is Ubiquinone – a vitamin-like, fat-soluble substance naturally present in the body, and also referred to as Coenzyme Q10, or simply Q10. We all have it within us but as you hit 30 or so, these natural levels tend to diminish and “topping up” can help your skin. Its value for general health and nutrition is well known and well researched, so you can do plenty of your own online studying.
As our skin matures, it becomes thinner and starts to sag. Depending on how much time you’ve spent in the sun, as an example, varying degrees of wrinkles may form.
We know that collagen (an essential amino acid and the most abundant protein in the body) is important because it makes our skin firm, while elastin gives the skin flexibility. As we age the loss of collagen and elastin causes our skin to wrinkle and sag. Here’s the key as to why Q10 is so good – It is known that Q10 may reduce the breakdown of collagen and elastin thus helping the skin retain its firmness and elasticity.
Q10 depleted skin may be more prone to the damage by free radicals, which are particularly abundant in the skin since it is exposed to the elements. Importantly Q10 acts as a strong antioxidant – it helps to neutralize those harmful free radicals that are one of the major causes of ageing! Thus, Q10 may boost skin repair and regeneration, and reduce free radical damage. Q10 is a small molecule that can relatively easily penetrate into skin cells and hence why Q10 skin products are now so popular.
Can it help with wrinkles? Q10 may help diminish fine wrinkles around the eyes, according to the Mayo Clinic. Applying Coenzyme Q10 prior to going out in the sun may also protect your skin from sun damage. Unlike sunscreens, antioxidant ointments like Q10 build up in the skin and may be longer lasting, notes the University of Maryland Medical Center.
