AGEING AND Q10
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 Q10. But as we age, the levels of natural 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.
IN WHICH NIVEA PRODUCTS IS Q10 FOUND?
For beautifully glowing and younger-looking skin, try our NIVEA Q10 Product Range
NIVEA 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.
FOR THE FACE
The NIVEA Q10 Anti-Wrinkle range offers a complete skincare routine:
1. Apply the Q10 Anti-Wrinkle Serum on cleansed skin
2. Apply the Q10 Anti-Wrinkle Day Cream during the day or the Q10 Anti-Wrinkle Night Cream at night
3. Apply the Q10 Anti-Wrinkle Eye Cream morning and night
Once a week apply the NIVEA Q10 Anti-Wrinkle Sheet Mask on cleansed skin and leave on for 10 minutes.
80% of premature skin ageing is due to the effects of UV radiation. For this reason, sunscreen is particularly effective in preventing light-induced skin ageing and pigment spots. A special sunscreen for the face with Q10 is ideal for mature skin.
BODY FIRMING Q10
With increasing age, the skin all over the body loses its firmness and elasticity. Try the NIVEA Q10 Plus Firming Body Care Products. Available in lotions, creams, firming cellulite gel and 7-in-1 multi power firming oil.
Our hands are the first to show signs of ageing because they are more exposed and subjected to hand washing, sanitising and manual work. NIVEA Q10 Anti-Age Hand Care is formulated to protect and care for the hands, firming skin and reducing fine lines and wrinkles.
Q10 FOR THE SKIN: BEIERSDORF IS A LEADER IN RESEARCH
The Beiersdorf researchers were among the first to research the use of Q10 in skincare. To this day, the Q10 products are in demand all over the world.
The NIVEA research team has been tracking down the effects of Q10 since the 1990s. Scientists have extensively studied the role of coenzyme Q10 in human skin and have been integrating it into skincare products since 1998.
