You Need This Asian Skin-Care Secret Weapon In Your Routine


You may not have heard of Q10 before, so consider this your crash course in one of the smartest ingredients in modern skin care. You can find it stateside a few places (including the drugstore), but in Tokyo, it is everywhere. During a recent trip to Japan, it was impossible for me to set foot in a pharmacy or beauty store and miss the multitude of sheet masks, serums, and creams with “Q10” emblazoned on the packaging.

“CoQ10 or Q10 is short for coenzyme 10 and it is also known as ubiquinone or vitamin Q,” explains Dendy Engelman, MD. “CoQ10 is an oil-based vitamin substance that is found in the mitochondria (our cell’s energy centers) and it is also an antioxidant involved a number of biological functions, including helping to produce energy, neutralizing free radicals, and keeping cells both inside the body and in the skin healthy.”

When the sun’s UV rays hit your skin, free radicals are released that oxidize skin cells and lead to photo-aging symptoms, like skin discoloration and brown spots. Studies have shown that Q10 is effective in slowing down these visible signs of UV damage. Once Q10 is absorbed through the skin, it penetrates and nixes the formation of oxidative stress — the not-so-secret culprit of premature aging and skin cancer.
