The Anti-Ageing Skin Benefits of Coenzyme Q10

Coenzyme Q10 Energises Skin Cells

Coenzyme Q10 is a substance naturally found in human body. It is present in every living cells particularly in the heart, lungs, kidneys, liver, pancreas, skin and other important organs. It has a crucial role in the normal functioning of the body.

Coenzyme Q10 generates energy for the skin to perform its functions including repairing damaged skin cells. The levels of coenzyme Q10 in the skin decline with age, hence, the skin is less capable of renewing itself and signs of skin damage are becoming more visible. In most people, the production of coenzyme Q10 in the body starts to decline after the age of 20.

Coenzyme Q10 Protects Skin Cells from Free Radicals and Oxidative Stress

In addition to generating energy for the normal functioning of the skin, coenzyme Q10 is also protecting skin cells from free radicals and oxidative stress.

Studies showed that the anti-oxidative properties of coenzyme Q10 helps prevent premature skin ageing due to environmental factors including sun-induced skin damage. It can be used effectively to slow down skin's ageing process.

To energise and protect your skin from free radical damage, use ultra firming and lifting anti-ageing moisturiser like Bio-Collagen Ageless Cream. Formulated with a combination of 10 bio-actives including coenzyme Q10, 24-karat nano gold, niacinamide and n-acetyl glucosamine to strengthen skin's defense against pollution and other ageing factors.


" My skin feels tighter but my wrinkles haven't gone completely although some smaller ones have faded." as independently tested and reviewed by METRO, the United Kingdom's highest-circulation print newspaper.


Coenzyme Q10 Reduces The Signs of Skin Ageing

The ability of Coenzyme Q10 in generating energy may play a critical role on how fast your skin renew itself. The declining levels of coenzyme Q10 in the body due to ageing has a significant impact on the skin's ability to repair damaged cells. In teenagers, the skin renews itself every 28 days. In adults, this process takes between 28 and 42 days. In people age 50 and older, it may take up to 84 days for the skin to renew itself.

It is important to restore the levels of coenzyme Q10 in the skin in order to prevent and reduce visible skin damage. By increasing the levels of coenzyme Q10, it gives skin more energy to repair damaged cells that otherwise appear as signs of ageing such as wrinkles, lines, age spots, dull complexion and sagging skin.

Dry skin tends to be more prone to signs of ageing. If you have dry skin, protect your skin from premature signs of ageing and damage with Bio-Renewal Face Oil. Gently massage 4 to 6 drops into your skin all over the face and neck excluding the immediate eye area, follow with your usual moisturiser. Alternatively, mix few drops of Bio-Renewal Face Oil with a small amount of moisturiser then massage into the skin.

Coenzyme Q10 Anti-Ageing Skincare Products

With its proven rejuvenating properties, coenzyme Q10 is the ideal ingredient to enhance the efficacy of anti-ageing skincare products. I use it in some of my anti-ageing formulas such as Bio-Collagen Serum, Bio-Collagen Ageless Cream and Bio-Renewal Face Oil.

In Bio-Collagen Serum, I combined coenzyme Q10 with resveratrol, ferulic acid, 24-karat colloidal gold, hyaluronic acid, vitamin E and botanical extracts to help slow down skin's ageing and reduce the appearance of wrinkles, lines and sagging skin.

In Bio-Collagen Ageless Cream, I mixed coenzyme Q10 with n-acetyl glucosamine, niacinamide, ferulic acid, 24-karat nano gold particles, ultra-low-molecular-weight hyaluronic acid and plant extracts to plump up, smooth out and even out the appearance of the skin. 

In Bio-Renewal Face Oil, I used a combination of coenzyme Q10, vitamin E and 7 botanical extracts to boost cell renewal, nourish and protect the skin from environmental ageing.

These three anti-ageing skincare products help minimise the appearance of wrinkles, lines, age spots and other signs of skin ageing.
