There is a lot of information about antioxidants & sometimes it’s not so simple to really understand how they can benefit your skin. The fact is that antioxidants in skin care products can protect & improve the appearance of your skin, including reducing the signs of aging.
Read on to better understand the importance & benefits of antioxidants & why use them in conjunction with dermaroller.
What are Antioxidants & Free Radicals?
Free radicals are basically “incomplete” particles in our body. They are similar to parasites as they attach themselves to other healthy cells and tissue and cause damage to those cells and tissues.
An antioxidant is a substance that helps to neutralize free radicals in your body by stabilizing their chemical structure. By preventing the free radical damage to our sells, antioxidants reduce aging & possibly even prevent diseases.
Antioxidants Protect Skin From Free Radical Damage
Antioxidants have the ability to neutralize free radicals and prevent them from damaging your body cells. By eating a diet rich in antioxidants and using skin care products that include antioxidants you can protect your skin from aging & cell damage.
Here’s a great simple video that explains how antioxidants & free radicals are functioning
What is The Antioxidant Coenzyme Q10?
Coenzyme Q10 is definitely one of the best-known active ingredient in anti-aging products. This coenzyme is also known as ubiquinone, Coenzyme Q, Vitamin Q10 and ubidecarenone. It’s most active & natural form is called ubiquinol.
The Coenzyme Q10 is produced by body itself and is is present throughout the entire body, where it plays a vital role – it activates the skin’s energy metabolism and is also a free-radical scavenger, similarly like vitamin E.
Some Studies About Coenzyme Q10
A study published in the Journal of Investigative Dermatology showed that topically applied antioxidants can prevent photoaging of the skin.
A Biofactors study have found that applying the coenzyme Q10 minimizes the appearance of wrinkles as well protects skin from photo-aging caused by the UVA.
Coenzyme Q10 Most Important Benefits
One of the most desirable benefits of antioxidants like Coenzyme Q10 in skin-care products is the calming of inflammation and reducing inflammation promotes more even skin tone and prevents acne and wrinkles.
Firms & tones skin
Another benefit of antioxidants like Coenzyme Q10 is skin firming. Antioxidants actually reverse the effects of aging by improving skin health and rejuvenating its appearance. Coenzyme Q10, or CoQ-10, is a common skin-firming antioxidant and is great to tone the skin.
Reduces wrinkles & signs of aging
Although it is nearly impossible to make wrinkles disappear then antioxidants like Coenzyme Q10 help plump out the skin and make it appear more youthful. Most antioxidants are great for reducing the appearance of wrinkles and fine lines, but vitamins C and E are especially beneficial.
Improves the appearance of scars
Reducing the appearance of scars is another benefit of antioxidants like Coenzyme Q10 in skin care. Scar tissue has a different cell structure than that of healthy skin, making it rigid. Antioxidants increase blood flow to scar tissue, minimizing the look of the scar and blending in the development of new skin.
Repairs sun damage
Sun damage makes skin appear tough and wrinkly. Antioxidants like Coenzyme Q10 stimulate blood flow in the skin and help encourage the growth of new cells and make sun-damaged skin appear younger.
Antioxidants & Dermaroller Treatments
The above benefits of antioxidants may be all enhanced with dermaroller treatments in the comfort of your own home. Dermarolling increase the absorption of the topically applied antioxidants & vitamins included in dermaroller serums so they may be more effective.
As dermarolling also stimulates the natural skin cell renewal, then with deeply absorbed nutrients the skin regeneration process is supported & enhanced significantly.
Dermarollers are being used as an alternative to many invasive cosmetic treatments to safely treat wrinkles and scars as well for smoothing the skin. Recent study shows also that there is no risk of hyper-pigmentation after dermarolling.
