Like vitamin C, coQ10 is a potent antioxidant that can defend your skin against environmental damage that leads to premature wrinkles, dullness and loss of elasticity. CoQ10 also boasts unique benefits for your skin that make it a must-have ingredient at any age.
Energize Your Skin
Sure, as an antioxidant, it’s a powerful enzyme that neutralizes the free radicals that cause aging1.
But unlike some other antioxidants, coQ10 also helps to generate energy within every cell in the body, including the skin. “CoQ10 is an essential cog in the machinery that produces biological energy inside the cells,” says New York City dermatologist Neil Sadick, MD, in The New Natural: Your Ultimate Guide to Scalpel-Free Age Reversal (Rodale). “Though coQ10 occurs naturally in the body, various factors such as aging, stress and some types of medication lower its effectiveness and, consequently, jeopardize the ability of cells to withstand stress and regenerate,” he adds.
Now Is the Right Time to Start
Start a coQ10 habit now to preserve skin’s smoothness and brightness and to protect against dryness, fine lines and loss of elasticity. Here’s the best way to use our entire product line for maximum benefits—our botanically based CoQ10 Collection of face and body products includes something for every step in your daily regimen.
