How to Heal Sun Damaged Skin
Scientists have investigated how to heal sun damaged skin. They have found
that many antioxidants or antioxidant-rich extracts are helpful, either when taken in supplement form or applied
topically as a skincare ingredient. One in particular is very effective, when applied
This article focuses on that ingredient.
Coenzyme Q10 - What Is It? What Does It Do?
The most effective skincare ingredient according to scientific studies is a special form of the
antioxidant coenzyme Q10. You may have heard of it. The supplement is sometimes recommended for heart
and circulatory health.
In one study, volunteers suffering from premature aging and other signs of sun-related damage
were asked to use a cream containing the compound on a daily basis for three months. After the trial period
was over, the average improvement in the group was 30%. Other studies have shown similar results.
As these studies began making the news, cosmetic companies started adding coenzyme Q10 to their
creams and body lotions. The problem is that most companies do not include the correct form.
Normally, coenzyme Q10 particles are too large to penetrate through the skin’s
outer surface. So, they don’t do much good.

simple steps, that’s how to heal sun damaged skin.
There are night creams, day creams and
body lotions that contain the right concentration and the right form. You
might not find them on the shelves of your local discount store, but they are available for order over the
Some companies charge an outrageous price for this effective active ingredient. In many
cases, the price mostly has to do with the amount of advertising that the company does.

The best creams contain other beneficial ingredients. They work in synergy with COQ10 to
give even faster results. Compounds like Functional Keratin, wakame, passion fruit and grape seed oil are all
