Scrub Away Dull, Aging Skin With Coq10
By Shellie Terry Benson |
We've heard a lot about coenzyme Q10 and the role it plays in heart health (it is believed by some to bring relief to statin or blood thinning drug side effects), but did you know CoQ10 is important to keeping aging skin youthful?
This vitamin-like substance is produced naturally in the body, and plays a critical role in cell turnover. It's also a powerful antioxidant that protects the cells from free radical and environmental damage, as well as boosts the effects of vitamin C and E, two more critical vitamins in the fight against aging skin.
So I was intrigued to come across a face product that combined CoQ10 and vitamins C and E, among others. Hydra Mar's Face Scrub Anti-Aging ($30) is a gentle exfoliating spa treatment that sloughs away dead skin cells without striping or drying out the skin. It leaves the face smooth and beyond soft. And while you're enjoying your new glowing skin, the active ingredients are working to revive your cells, bump up collagen production and fight off aging.
