What is Coenzyme Q10 Serum Used For?

Coenzyme Q10 may not be the most well-known skincare ingredient, but that doesn’t mean it doesn’t deserve a spot in your routine. This antioxidant powerhouse plays a key role in protecting your skin and promoting a more youthful complexion. Here’s your complete guide to everything you need to know about using a coenzyme Q10 serum! 

What is Coenzyme Q10?

Let’s start with the basics: what exactly is coenzyme Q10? It’s more than just a skincare ingredient – it’s also naturally found in the body! Coenzyme Q10 (also referred to as CoQ10) is a fat-soluble enzyme that’s responsible for energy production. 

Beyond helping with energy, it also has potent antioxidant properties, which is largely why it’s such a powerful remedy when used topically in skincare formulas. Antioxidants like CoQ10 are responsible for shielding the skin against the damaging effects of free radicals from UV exposure, pollution, and other environmental aggressors. With chronic, unprotected exposure, these free radicals speed up the aging process. This can result in a variety of visible signs of aging, including fine lines, wrinkles, sun spots, and loss of firmness. 

Benefits of Coenzyme Q10 Serum

Coenzyme Q10 is the star ingredient of our CoQ10 Boost Serum. This soothing and hydrating formula was created to both treat and prevent visible signs of aging. With regular use, this clean, science-driven formula: 

  • Evens Skin Tone and Diminishes Sun Damage: By protecting the skin against the damaging effects of UV rays, CoQ10 works to minimize sun damage. It also blocks an enzyme called tyrosinase, which plays a role in melanin production. This adds to CoQ10’s ability to treat and prevent uneven pigmentation. 
  • Smooths Fine Lines and Wrinkles: CoQ10 stimulates the production of collagen and elastin in the body. This increase in production results in firmer and more elastic skin with softened fine lines and wrinkles. 
  • Protects Against Damaging Free Radicals: Thanks to its antioxidant power, coenzyme Q10 works to prevent future damage to the skin that would be caused by free radicals.   
  • Nourishes Skin Cells: CoQ10 improves skin cells by replenishing and energizing them so that they are able to function better for healthier skin overall.  

  • Coenzyme Q10 is the key ingredient of this formula, but it’s also supported by other high performance players. Green tea leaf extract, licorice root extract, and vitamin E provide additional antioxidant support for maximum daily protection against free radicals, while hydrating ingredients lock in moisture. With regular use, the skin is left looking and feeling soft, firm, and radiant.

    How to Use It

    Adding a CoQ10 serum to your routine is super simple. Coenzyme Q10 is gentle on the skin, and can be safely used both in the morning and at night for maximum benefits. Apply it after cleansing, and then follow up with a moisturizer, as well as sunscreen during the day. If you’re using other serums, keep in mind that you’ll want to apply them in order from thinnest to thickest. 

    Other Products to Layer With 

    The good news about coenzyme Q10 is that it plays well with other skincare ingredients. This means it’s easy to layer with other serums and products! 

    If you’re looking to fully protect your complexion while hydrating, boosting radiance, and minimizing signs of aging, we recommend pairing the CoQ10 Boost Serum with the  Hyaluronic Pure Boost and the  Vitamin C Boost serums, which can all be used at the same time. Start with the brightening and anti-aging Vitamin C Boost Serum, giving it a few minutes to fully absorb. Follow up with the CoQ10 Boost Serum, and then the skin-quenching Hyaluronic Pure Boost Serum. 

    With regular use, this trio of skincare solutions will help you achieve a radiant, youthful complexion that is well protected against damaging environmental aggressors!
