Unlike most vitamins, our body can produce Q10 itself. At a young age, the skin is sufficiently supplied with it. In addition, we absorb it through food. Nuts, meat, green vegetables and cold-pressed vegetable oils, for example, are rich in coenzyme Q10. But as we age, the levels of natural Coenzyme Q10 in our skin decrease. Due to the fact that it is such a vital antioxidant and crucial for the energy production process, a reduction in Q10 makes the skin more prone to increased stress and damage.
This makes it more susceptible to fine lines and wrinkles, and that's why integrating products with Q10 into your skincare routine could help to maintain younger-looking skin for longer.
Care formulas with Q10 for longer young-looking skin:
- With increasing age, the skin's defence function decreases and it becomes more susceptible to oxidative stress. It is one of the causes of the first fine lines and wrinkles. For beautifully glowing and younger-looking skin, try our NIVEA Q10 Energy Day Cream, which alleviates signs of tiredness and reduces dullness.
- Care formulas with Q10 in anti-ageing products can support the skin's natural defence mechanisms and the energy metabolism of the skin cells. Applied as a cream, serum or body lotion, the antioxidant is introduced into the skin. There it can help to capture free radicals and render them harmless - preventing early signs of ageing.
