Supercharge Your Skin With NIVEA Q10PlusC

Refresh & revitalise your skin with NIVEA Q10PlusC range of products containing 100% Skin Identical Q10 & Vitamin C.

SUPERCHARGE YOUR SKIN

Does your busy life leave your skin looking dull and tired? If this is the case, you are not alone. This is why we have carefully created our NIVEA Q10plusC range of skincare products, with 100% Skin Identical Q10 and Vitamin C, to supercharge skin that is beginning to fade.

THE POWER OF NIVEA Q10PLUSC

As a highly effective antioxidant, pure Vitamin C is a pick-me-up for the skin and a strong ally against free radicals. Because free radicals – which are generated through UV radiation and environmental pollutants – are one of the main causes of skin ageing. Coenzyme Q10 is found naturally in all our body's cells and is critical for producing energy needed to fulfil the skin's basic functions, such as regeneration and repair. Q10, normally found naturally in the skin, reduces as we age leading to fine lines and wrinkles forming. That's why the Q10 in all our NIVEA products are now 100% identical to that naturally found in the skin, so that they can replenish all that is lost without adding unnecessary ingredients to our products. NIVEA is combining two powerful ingredients: 100% Skin Identical Q10 and highly potent, pure Vitamin C. The powerful antioxidant and energising properties of both these ingredients will help to energise your skin and NIVEA Q10PlusC products have been carefully created to refresh dull and tired skin whilst fighting the first signs of aging. 

Benefits of NIVEA Q10plusC products for skin:

  1. Protection from harmful UV rays
    As vitamin C has strong antioxidant properties it is able to enhance the skin's natural defensive barrier to environmental stressors such as UV radiation from the sun. Q10 also combats oxidative stress caused by UV radiation. Using a day cream that contains SPF 15 will provide a further defensive barrier against the sun throughout the day.
  2. Reduces skin redness
    Vitamin C has anti-inflammatory properties that combined with the energising ability of Q10 can help to soothe facial redness for a more even looking complexion. As our skin matures it becomes more susceptible to redness as its natural defenses begin to weaken, recharging your skin with NIVEA Q10plusC products will help to keep your healthy and youthful complexion.
  3. Ability to help with skin firming
    By supporting the skin's natural production of collagen, vitamin C plays an important role in keeping skin firm. Coupled with the energy that Q10 provides the skin, NIVEA Q10plusC products give aging skin a much needed boost in staying firm. Collagen is responsible for the structure of our skin and as we age, our natural production of collagen begins to fade. A lack of collagen can lead to sagging skin and the appearance of both fine lines and wrinkles. Boosting the levels of vitamin C in your skin will in turn help to boost the amount of collagen produced, for firmer skin.
  4. Helps skin remain hydrated
    Vitamin C helps our skin retain water meaning it will stay moisturised for longer. A lack of moisture in the skin can lead to it drying out and becoming irritated. Boosting levels of vitamin C will help to soothe skin and keep it looking and feeling healthier for longer.
  5. Minimises dark spots and hyperpigmentation - leaving skin visibly brighter
    As well has protecting against UV rays, vitamin C also helps defend against other environmental stressors and free radicals that can cause damage to our skin which leads to dark spots and hyperpigmentation. Not only this but vitamin C also inhibits the enzyme that prevents the production of melanin - melanin causes hyperpigmentation and dark spots, so stopping the production of melanin is key to fighting these signs of skin aging.

All your questions answered by the NIVEA experts

For 55 years, the NIVEA experts have been researching and innovating in anti-aging care, studying the skin’s natural processes and developing formulas that support them, working with the skin’s biology. Discover our answers to all your questions about the best anti-aging and re-energizing formulas for beautiful and radiant skin.

 

1. What makes NIVEA Q10plusC Anti-Wrinkle + Energy so different?

 

Free radicals from the environment, such as UV light and air pollutants damage our skin and age it prematurely. They attack cellular membranes and disrupt proper functioning of the cells. In order to protect our skin from free radicals, we need anti-oxidants.  NIVEA Q10plusC Energy combines two highly effective antioxidants: skin's own Q10 and vitamin C. This synergistic combination offers better protection against cellular stress and free radicals.

 

2. How does coenzyme Q10 work on the skin?

Q10 is a co-enzyme that occurs naturally in skin cells and functions in two ways: as an energy provider and as an anti-oxidant. As a necessary component of energy production in skin cells, Q10 supports all essential processes in the cells from cell regeneration to synthesis of collagen. In addition, Q10 anti-oxidants protect against free radicals, which damage skin cells and are one cause of premature skin aging. The amount of Q10 in the skin decreases over the years, however. The NIVEA Q10plusC Energy care line replenishes the Q10 level of the skin.

 

3. How does Vitamin C boost the positive effects of coenzyme Q10?

The co-enzyme Q10 is even more effective in combination with Vitamin C. This highly effective combination protects skin cells, supports skin regeneration and increases skin cell oxygen uptake. Studies have proven that the combination of Q10 and Vitamin C boost metabolism more than Q10 on its own. This makes it possible for the skin to breathe “deeply” at night.

4. What effect does Vitamin C have on our skin?

Pure Vitamin C is a highly effective anti-oxidant and displays multiple positive effects on the skin. In addition, pure Vitamin C improves skin structure by strengthening the papilla density of the skin. This enables the skin to transport more nutrients and oxygen to the dermis and, in this way, also helps prevent the formation of wrinkles.

 

5. What is the best way to use and preserve care products with Vitamin C?

Even though the aluminium tube protects the formula against oxygen and light exposure, the product should be closed tightly immediately after every application, so that the formula has as little contact with air as possible. Besides that, we recommend wiping the nozzle after every application before closing the tube.

 

6. NIVEA Q10plusC Energy Skin Sleep Cream lets skin cells breathe deeply. Why is this so important?

The combination of energizer co-enzyme Q10 and pure Vitamin C is capable of increasing so-called “cellular respiration”. Beiersdorf Skin Research has demonstrated this in elaborate studies on skin cells. The process enables better supply of energy to the skin cells, which need it to perform necessary metabolic functions like repair processes. This helps the skin counteract the appearance of premature aging effects.

 

7. Ascorbic acid, better known as Vitamin C, is an acid. Will it not harm the skin?

Ascorbic acid is a weak acid and the pH-value of the formula is in the neutral range. This makes the formula with the Vitamin C concentration used by us both highly effective and very agreeable to the skin at the same time. As with any NIVEA product, this formula has been extensively tested and its high skin compatibility has been established in scientific studies.

q10

8. Why is it so important to use different products for night, day and eye care?

 

Every day in a woman’s life is different and has its own rhythm. And that's why we need 24 hour skin care: during the day, the skin needs protection from environmental influences and UV rays. By contrast, at night it needs active ingredients that support its regeneration processes. As for the skin around the eyes, it needs more intensive hydration and protection in a very light texture, because it is very sensitive and tends to form wrinkles more easily.
