Why Nivea is the perfect antidote to tired skin
Author: Danielle Cauchi Date Posted: 10 November 2020
As we age, our skin tends to take on a tired appearance, regardless of how many hours of sleep we’re getting. That’s because our skin becomes drier and loses a lot of its key components that keeps it youthful, firm and resilient.
When it comes to replacing what is lost and getting our skin back on track with easy-to-use, trusted skincare solutions, Nivea is the brand you want to go to.
For decades, Nivea has led the skincare industry with quick solutions and luxurious formulas that target a whole heap of skin concerns and meet the needs of everybody regardless of background, age or gender.
Their decades of research have led to the creation of many effective formulas that use a range of powerful ingredients that fight one of the biggest tell-tale signs of aging – fatigue.
Let’s unpack some of Nivea’s formulas and explore the cosmetic benefits of a few key ingredients.
CoEnzyme Q10 is a compound found in the mitochondria of the cells. It is responsible for generating and providing energy to the cells for them to work at their full potential.
Natural production of CoEnzyme Q10 is reduced with age, so applying it to the skin in the form of a lotion, cream or other skincare solution can protect it against internal and external damage (e.g. UV rays), encourage antioxidant protection, neutralise free radicals that contribute to aging and even reduce the depth of wrinkles.
Whilst Vitamin C is great for brightening dull, tired skin, it also plays a crucial role in collagen synthesis. Its acidity jolts the skin into healing itself by boosting its production of collagen and elastin, two protein fibres that help keep our skin looking and feeling youthfully plump and firm.
The antioxidant properties of Vitamin C boost the skin’s natural process of regeneration which accelerates the body's ability to repair damaged skin cells.
Like CoEnzyme Q10, Vitamin C helps neutralise free radicals and also halts the skins melanin production, therefore reducing the likelihood of dark spots and hyperpigmentation.
Creatine is an organic acid that is naturally produced in our liver, kidneys and pancreas. Containing three essential amino acids, this powerful substance is an energy source for cells all throughout our body.
While supplying energy to the cells, Creatine also helps to repair them, increasing their water content and boosting the skins overall ability to regenerate and stimulate production of collagen.
Hyaluronic Acid is a hydrating agent that is excellent for rectifying dry, dehydrated skin.
Since our skin becomes drier as we age, a humectant like Hyaluronic Acid is crucial to boost our skins hydration, revitalising and renewing its appearance to look and feel softer, smoother, more radiant and much more awake. This also helps to improve the appearance of pesky fine lines and wrinkles.
Magnolia Extract is a very effective ingredient with substantial antioxidant, antibacterial and anti-inflammatory properties.
Inflammation triggers our body to produce free radicals which contribute to the development of wrinkles, fine lines, sagging skin, blotchiness and redness.
Magnolia Extract eases this inflammation whilst also maintaining skin elasticity, neutralising free radicals and gradually fading dark spots and other pigmentation.
