Confession, I did not take great care of my skin in my 20s. All right, twist my arm, not even into my early 30s. I know that makes me a bad beauty girl, but it’s the truth. So, now I find myself scrambling to undo all the damage tanning beds (I KNOW!), a lack of proper sunscreen/anti-aging products, and improper nutrition have had on my skin. I’m sure I’m not alone. Tell me I’m not alone!
That has led me down a path of trying any and every anti-aging product I can get my hands on to make a dent in the wrinkles popping up on my face and to prevent any further damage. Now, the path has led me to MitoQ serum, which I have been testing for the past five weeks.
This powerful serum is pretty revolutionary in that it contains a new, positive form of CoQ10 that can penetrate the walls of mitochondria, the part of our cells that produce energy. I’m sure you’ve seen CoQ10 touted in skincare products in the past. It’s a powerful enzyme that fights free radicals in addition to producing energy. The problem? Our bodies start to produce less and less CoQ10 once we hit 30, which slows the ability to fight aging. MitoQ is unique in that it can enter the mitochondria and replace lost CoQ10, working like little batteries to recharge your cells.
I’ve been using one pump of MitoQ Serum (seen below), twice a day, for five weeks without changing any other products in my face care routine. The bright yellow color and thicker consistency may look a bit unusual, but once it hits your skin, it sinks right in leaving no greasy feel or build-up. I’ve been wearing it under my usual sunscreen and face makeup with no issues. No balling or flaking in sight.
And, I’m happy to report that I’m seeing and feeling a noticeable improvement in my skin’s texture, especially in areas that tend to feel rough like my chin and cheeks. What I’m really happy to notice is that my eye area where I’m starting to see crow’s feet and around my nasolabial folds appear softer.
