The body naturally creates this as well to destroy free radicals in the cells. As we age, we begin to make less. This will then make the skin cells more susceptible to damage by these free radicals. This is the reasoning behind using the antioxidant in our skin care products like gels, toners, and creams, either to be used unaccompanied or with a moisturizer. A study shows that this CoQ-10 helps lessen “crow’s feet,” the crumples around the eyes.
