There are two ingredients that keep popping up time and time again when dermatologists talk about nutrients and anti-aging - CoQ10 and Vitamin C (both are in Ages of course).
Coenzyme Q10, usually referred to as CoQ10, is a naturally occurring antioxidant in the body. In skin cells, CoQ10 can help maintain collagen — a vital protein in our body that helps keep the skin firm and plump. Using CoQ10 products may result in smoother skin and help prevent wrinkles.
Also, since it is an antioxidant, it can protect you from free radicals, which are unstable molecules created by pollution, the sun, and even our own bodies. Free radicals can lead to DNA damage in your cells, which can impair the skin's ability to help repair itself. This can cause wrinkles, fine lines, and skin discoloration, especially in the case of free radicals from UV sun exposure. Using CoQ10 may help counteract these effects.
Vitamin C combats aging with its antioxidant effects. Similar to the other antioxidants, vitamin C can decrease the formation of harmful free radicals which can lead to signs of aging.
Vitamin C can prevent the overproduction of melanin, which prevents the formation of brown spots and hyperpigmentation.
