The skincare benefits of CoQ10!

- Sydney, 1 July 2016 - By Irene Falcone -
A few months ago I put together a blog post talking all about Coenzyme Q10 and how it works. Since then, I have continued my research and discovered some amazing new products containing CoQ10! This powerful antioxidant is found naturally in our bodies, however as we age, our levels of CoQ10 decrease. This can be worsened by factors such as stress! That’s why I love using products containing a CoQ10 supplement that can help fight off ageing and leave skin glowing. Ideal for regeneration and cell repair, once you try CoQ10 products, I know you’ll be hooked!
Why should you be using CoQ10 products?
CoQ10 is a powerful antioxidant that works to prevent the peroxidation of lipids (skin oils).2 Found in nearly all of our cell membranes, it also has many uses within the body. Some of these include helping to convert carbs and fats into energy used by cells!2
One of Coenzyme Q10’s most vital roles is fighting off free radicals that affect the cell regenerating functions of collagen and elastin. As we age and our skin’s physiology changes, our levels of CoQ10 naturally decrease. This is particularly evident in people over the age of 30 who typically have lower than average levels! To ensure that your skin is able to repair itself at an optimal level, using CoQ10 based products can make a huge difference! In skin care, this antioxidant effectively works to promote youthful skin by combating signs of ageing at a cellular level.1 When applied topically to the skin, it rapidly improves cell regeneration and energy production.1
Which CoQ10 skin care products do I recommend?

There’s no better time than at night to give your skin a boost of vitamins, minerals and antioxidants! The Mukti Age Defiance Night Serum is made with a formula rich in active peptides, Australian native extracts and Coenzyme Q10. This hardworking serum absorbs quickly to effectively penetrate the skin. In a clinical study conducted by Mukti, participants saw a greater than 10% visible in age spots over 4 weeks and 25% within just 8 weeks! They also saw a significant lightening effect after just 30-60 days! This serum also helps to brighten the skin as it contains the peptide Chromabright which fights photo ageing and lightens the complexion. To use, apply onto the skin at night after cleansing.
Happy Skincare ‘Laugh Out Loud’ Active Jojoba Oil
As Jojoba oil is a very similar consistency to that of our own skin’s oils, it can regenerate the skin from a cellular level.

It’s packed full of nutrients including Zinc, Selenium, Iron, Magnesium, Potassium and Calcium! This oil also contains 15 amino acids and Vitamins A, B and E! For a powerhouse dose of antioxidants, apply this oil morning and night after cleansing.
