Coenzyme Q10 for Anti-ageing

THE FACTS ABOUT COENZYME Q10

Coenzyme Q10, or more commonly known as Q10, is naturally produced in the body. It is vital for energy production to fulfil the skin’s basic functions, such as regeneration and repair, and makes an important contribution to the function of all the body’s cells - especially those of the liver, heart and skin.


Similar to a vitamin, Q10 is present in the whole body and can support different processes. It plays a vital role in cellular energy production and has antioxidant properties that combat oxidative stress which can accelerate skin ageing and damage the cells. This is why Q10 is so essential for smooth, healthy-looking skin.

WHAT CAUSES A DEFICIENCY OF THE SKIN'S OWN Q10?

Physical exertion, illness, stress or an unhealthy lifestyle can cause the body to consume more nutrients in order to repair itself, creating a greater need for Q10. This can have effects on our skin, such as losing firmness and elasticity. As we get older, the production of Q10 also starts to lessen – that’s why we need to consciously supply and replenish our bodies with Q10 through nutrition and skincare.

NUTRITION FOR THE SKIN

As we age, the levels of natural coenzyme Q10 in our skin decreases. As a vital anti-oxidant and crucial for energy production, a reduction in Q10 makes the skin more prone to increased stress and damage such as fine lines and wrinkles.


By integrating products with Q10 into your skin care routine, you can help to maintain younger-looking skin for longer.


Q10 is contained in many foods: for example, foods such as meat (beef, poultry), sea fish (especially in sardines), eggs, vegetable oil, nuts, almonds, soya, potatoes, green vegetables such as spinach and broccoli, and pulses, are especially rich in Q10.


Using Q10 products to fight wrinkles

Everyone’s skin ages differently and a lot of external factors – such as genetics, lifestyle and sun exposure – can influence this. There are different ways to try to stop our skin from ageing, whether it’s through lifestyle changes or using specific products. Luckily for you, NIVEA’s Q10 products can give you that little bit of extra care.


All NIVEA products are the result of a combination of a highly developed innovation culture and over a century of Beiersdorf’s competence in skin research. Our intensive research has demonstrated how replenishing levels of the coenzyme Q10 can support the skin’s natural functions and protect it from damage, which would otherwise cause visible ageing. Our scientists have been integrating Q10 into NIVEA skin care products since as far back as 1998. To this day, Q10 products are in demand around the world.

TOP TIPS TO MAINTAINING HEALTHY SKIN

Our skin ages more quickly or slowly depending on how healthily we live. Give your daily skincare routine an extra boost by getting active yourself. With the right diet, plenty of exercise and a good night’s sleep, you can help your skin look younger for longer.

EXERCISE FIRMS THE SKIN

Get plenty of exercise – preferably in the fresh air. The tissue in your skin receives better circulation - the blood carries oxygen and nutrients whilst carrying away free radicals that can damage your collagen. This means that it has good firming properties that help to tighten the skin.

EAT A HEALTHY DIET

Vitamins and minerals are important for skin tightening. Your diet should include a variety of foods that supplement this, such as:

- Fresh fruit and vegetables

- Fish and pulses

- Less foods high in trans/saturated fat

- Omega 3 fatty acids

- Walnuts, pistachios, almonds and pecans

GET PLENTY OF SLEEP

Beauty sleep is something that really does exist. When we sleep, our body starts its regeneration programme as collagen is made, meaning that skin gets plumper and smoother, reducing wrinkles. Sleep is also great for the skin around the eyes, as with less sleep, fluid can build up causing puffiness while blood vessels and dark tissue can begin to show from fatigue. Get 7-8 hours’ sleep a night and you’ll be rewarded with rested and healthy skin.

Always read the label. Follow the directions for use.
