If you want to boost your skin cell’s health condition then look to Co-Enzyme Q10 (CoQ10). It is a fat soluble substance also known as ubiquinone that protects skin cells, and boosts the skin structure from within to prevent fine lines and wrinkles from forming on the epidermis. In fact it is an antioxidant that is produced by the body and is needed to keep the cells healthy. Research has also shown that CoQ10 can protect the skin from photodamage caused by the UV rays. It also neutralises free radicals which damage skin.
While CoQ10 is produced naturally by our body, but as we cross our 30s the levels get lower. Thus our cells start to lose their ability to withstand stress and regenerate. As the levels of CoQ10 declines in our skin cells, signs of aging start to appear. Your skin starts to lose its abilities to produce collagen and elastin that create the skin structure.
To supplement the lowered levels of CoQ10, you should look for creams that have this fatty substance added, since scientists have found that CoQ10 is a small molecule that can quite easily penetrate into skin cells. Long term usage can actually diminish deep wrinkles that tend to form around the eye area and mouth. In fact, topical application of CoQ10 on your neck and jaw area also prevents the skin from sagging. It also improves complexion and restore’s skin’s lost suppleness.
