CoQ10 skin Creams

Be aware of dubious claims, without valid scientific research to support the effects of CoQ10. You have many high priced skincare products in the market marketed by celebrities with sensational advertisements claiming cure of cellulite. There is no scientific or empirical backing for these claims. But there are lots of empirical evidence that supports topical application CoQ10 to repair and rejuvenate skin. CoQ10 could also potentially aid in preventing damage that is caused by free radical damage due to environmental exposure like sun, pollution and smoking.

There are a number of conditions in which CoQ tissue concentrations are altered with functional consequences. Oxidative stress generated by, for example, physical exercise increases tissue ubiquinone levels by increasing biosynthesis, as does administration of drugs like clofibrate. In contrast, aging is generally associated with decreases in tissue CoQ levels. For example, levels of CoQ10 in the skin are low in childhood, reach a maximum at around 20-30 years of age, and then decrease steadily with increasing age. Topically applied CoQ10 can penetrate into the living cell layers of the skin and attenuate both the depth of deep wrinkles characteristic of photoaging, as well as the turnover of epithelial cells. CoQ10 is also highly effective in protecting skin cells known as keratinocytes from oxidative DNA damage induced by ultraviolet light
