|What it's used for: Wrinkles, sun protection|
How it works: Coenzyme Q10 or Ubiquinone is one of the body's natural antioxidants. As such, its main purpose is to help prevent oxidative stress. This is accomplished both in body tissues and in the skin. In the skin, the
main effect of ubiquinone is to prevent against damage from ultraviolet
rays and pollution. As we age, we produce less of our own ubiquinone, and supplementing
this may help to fight oxidative stress. In addition
to its antioxidant effects, ubiquinone has been
observed to increase the synthesis of hyaluronic acid which may help to improve
fine lines and wrinkles.
Where to find it: Coenzyme Q can be found in many topical products
