Humans potentially deal with numerous challenges brought on by aging: from health problems to mental decline. On the physical side, aging is most observable on your skin.
As you get older, your skin is at the mercy of different elements. Your skin has to contend with harsh weather, poor lifestyle habits, and insufficient or improper skincare. As a result, skin cells get damaged, which leads to premature wrinkles, spots, and sagging.
Fortunately, there are ways to make the skin look fresh and young again, even if you’re getting on in years. One way to stave the effects of aging on our skin is to use products with CoQ10, an ingredient that’s a part of Kedma skincare.
CoQ10 and Its Benefits
CoQ10, formally known as Coenzyme Q10 is a naturally-occurring nutrient in the body. Within the skin, CoQ10 is localized at the most superficial level to protect the deeper levels. It’s also an antioxidant that helps shield your skin from free radicals. The body uses CoQ10 for growth and health maintenance.
Unfortunately, CoQ10 levels decrease as you age or whenever you are stressed. This affects the body’s ability to regenerate quickly. There’s also less of this nutrient in people with certain conditions, like heart diseases, also among the problems commonly associated with aging.
According to the Mayo Clinic, CoQ10 is vital in the treatment of several health problems, including heart conditions, Parkinson’s disease, and statin-induced myopathy. While internal wellbeing plays a role in maintaining healthy skin, CoQ10’s antioxidant property is what makes it essential to skincare.
Bring Back Skin Youthfulness with CoQ10
When women reach the age of thirty, their CoQ10 levels start to significantly decrease. The lack of CoQ10 means that free radicals are able to attack collagen and elastin—proteins that give the skin firmness and flexibility. Without these proteins, your skin is more prone to wrinkling and sagging. But with enough CoQ10, the production of collagen and elastin continues, keeping the skin smoother and suppler.
There are other ways that CoQ10 benefits the skin:
- CoQ10 energizes the skin
As an enzyme created in the liver and found in the mitochondria of cells, CoQ10 plays a key role in energy production. In fact, it’s responsible for 95 percent of the body’s energy production at the cellular level. When skin cells are energized, skin aging is delayed, keeping you youthful-looking for longer.
- CoQ10 stimulates skin rejuvenation
When skin cells are active, they can easily get rid of toxins. It also means that they make better use of nutrients. Unfortunately, skin aging slows these processes down, making your skin dull, sallow, and prone to wrinkling. But the presence of sufficient CoQ10 boosts skin cell activity, making the skin look younger.
- CoQ10 protects your skin against photoaging
Apart from the natural course of aging, the skin also has to deal with photoaging. According to the Skin Cancer Foundation, photoaging happens when the dermis, the middle layer of the skin that contains collagen, is damaged by UV radiation from the sun. This damage results in premature skin aging. CoQ10 protects the keratinocytes—cells in the epidermis, the skin’s outermost layer—by increasing levels of glutathione.
- CoQ10 protects the skin against oxidative damage
The overproduction of free radicals, exposure to pollutants and toxins, and the overall feeling of stress all contribute to what is called oxidative stress. As a result, the skin gets damaged and leads to premature skin aging. CoQ10’s antioxidant properties prevent these damages to the skin and keep the skin younger looking.
How to Incorporate CoQ10 in Your Skincare Routine
As experts in skincare, Kedma Cosmetics knows how you can achieve a more youthful appearance with the help of products with CoQ10. Our Platinum Collection specifically has this property in the products included.
- Platinum Instant Firming Mask
When the skin on your face needs a little pick-me-up (literally), firming masks are the answer. Facial masks, in general, rehydrates your skin, tones your complexion, and removed dead skin cells. All that gives your skin a healthier glow.
Kedma Cosmetics’ Instant Firming Mask takes these benefits to the next level. Our product contains CoQ10 and Dead Sea minerals, which are both known for their skin rejuvenating properties. This firming mask increases the skin’s moisture level and enhances its smoothness and softness. What’s more, the mask is fortified with Gingko Biloba Leaf Extract, which boosts skin’s hydration, and the antioxidant Vitamin E. All these and more nourish the skin, boost elasticity, and make your skin look younger.
Apply this after cleansing and drying your skin.
- Platinum Silky Serum
One of the most important beauty products that aid in preventing skin aging is serum. Facial serums have tons of skincare benefits, such as smoothing your wrinkles and clearing your blemishes. This product acts as a lightweight moisturizer that can penetrate deeper to deliver its active ingredients into your skin.
Kedma Cosmetics’ Platinum Silky Serum has these luxurious active ingredients, including polymers that make your skin feel velvety soft, and, of course, CoQ10. Enriched with Vitamins A, C, and E and pearl powder, this product has it all to keep your skin smooth and radiant.
After washing off the firming mask, apply this silky serum to moisturize your skin.
- Platinum Ultimate Cream
Most skin creams soothe dryness and reverse the signs of aging on your skin. Generally, day and night creams supply moisture to the dry parts of your face or repair the damage brought on by the sun. Creams also ensure that your skin has an even complexion and texture.
Kedma Cosmetics’ Platinum Ultimate Cream can be used for both night and day. This product helps replenish the depleted resource of CoQ10. With this enzyme’s antioxidant properties, along with other multivitamin ingredients, the Platinum Ultimate Cream counteracts the damages caused by free radicals and helps fight environmental hazards. The result is firmer, smoother, and more radiant-looking skin with a diminished appearance of wrinkles.
Following the application of Kedma Cosmetics Platinum Silky Serum, you may massage the Platinum Ultimate Cream into your facial skin twice a day to get the best results.
We know you’re always on the lookout for ways to slow down skin aging. Fortunately, the topical application of skincare products that contain CoQ10 and its antioxidant properties is an efficient way to give your skin the boost that it needs to keep the signs of aging at bay.
