#FeatureFriday - Crazy for CoQ10!
Posted on 08 January 2016
What is it? Coenzyme Q10 is an enzyme that is naturally produced by your body. Its main function is to fight free radicals, which can cause cellular damage, but sadly your body produces less and less as you age. CoQ10 is used in skincare because of its antioxidant properties. Antioxidants scavenge free radicals, which cause your cells to age, and neutralize them. This is why CoQ10 is so great for anti-aging.
Applied topically, CoQ10 helps firm collagen and elastin so your skin is left feeling and looking more youthful. It’s great for reversing the signs of sun damage and diminishing the appearance of skin discolorations and wrinkles. Because of its many benefits, CoQ10 is amazing for all skin types but especially for people looking to improve skin clarity, fight UV damage, and have an overall younger, healthier complexion.
