As women, I’ve noted through conversations that our biggest concerns when it comes to our skin is how tired it looks, fine lines and wrinkles. Personally, my biggest worry in addition to the previously mentioned concerns is whether or not my skin will co-operate the next morning, and the uncertainty always has me on edge. What if I have a big meeting, a shoot or casting first thing in the morning? I needed to find a product which would guarantee my skin wouldn’t look dull, but instead, full of life. Over the years I have also been hearing a lot more chat around the importance of using a night cream, in addition to using a day cream. That is why I thought I’d try out the new NIVEA Q10plusC Anti-Wrinkle + Energy series.
Why NIVEA Q10plusC Anti-Wrinkle + Energy face care?
The NIVEA Q10plusC Anti-Wrinkle + Energy skin care range is said to be highly effective. For the very first time, it combines powerful antioxidants, Co-enzyme Q10 and pure Vitamin C, to give tired, dull skin a natural boost of energy and reduce fine lines and wrinkles. The powerful and proven formula with Co-Enzyme Q10 (Q10) and Vitamin C includes a Skin Sleep Cream and Day Care SPF 15.
The Skin Sleep Cream is proven to allow skin cells to take up 50% more oxygen* overnight which is the time when your skin needs optimum support. Environmental damage and ageing contribute to your skin cells being starved of oxygen which they so vitally need in order to function at their best. Boosting oxygen supply with NIVEA’s Skin Sleep Cream helps skin look fresh and energised.
My personal experience:
I have been using the NIVEA Q10plusC Anti-Wrinkle + Energy Day Care SPF 15 in the morning and the NIVEA Q10plusC Anti-Wrinkle + Energy Skin Sleep Cream in the evenings as I prepare to get some shut eye. It’s no surprise that I’m impressed with these products because NIVEA products have never let me down.
I haven’t solely left all the work to the NIVEA Q10plusC Anti-Wrinkle + Energy face care. I also have a face care routine I follow which involves cleansing, exfoliating, toning and THEN moisturising for maximum effect of the face care products. And I drink lot’s of water.
My days are quite unpredictable. One day I could be extremely busy and the other I could be having a calm day at home. Regardless of what’s going on, I still have to ensure my skin is well moisturised throughout the day. The citrus scented NIVEA Q10plusC Anti-Wrinkle + Energy Day Care SPF 15 is applied in the mornings and what I love about it is that it’s light and fast absorbing. It contains highly effective anti-oxidants Q10 and Vitamin C, and with pure Vitamin C our skin gets the ‘pick-me-up’ it needs. Vitamin C is also the bestie you need for your skin as it fights against free radicals which are one of the main causes of skin ageing. Then Q10 is your skin’s energy-provider which boosts collagen synthesis and cell regeneration. I always stress the importance of having an SPF in your hand, face and body creams, so that box they’ve also ticked with the SPF 15 day care!
When it comes to night time anyone who knows me well will tell you how much I absolutely love my beauty sleep. With that being said, It goes without mention how thrilled I am that the new NIVEA Q10plusC Anti-Wrinkle + Energy Skin Sleep Cream does all the work while I’m in la-la land. Before I used this Sleep Cream there were times I’d wake up with my face feeling so beat, as if I had been in a boxing match while I was fast asleep! I don’t know what that was all about, and my face just felt heavy, sluggish and looked tired! It’s important to use a night cream because it is during our sleep that our skin absorbs moisture best and damaged skin is said to repair up to eight times faster than it does during the day. Of late, I have been waking up to reduced fine lines and somewhat of a recharged/energised feeling, with renewed, radiant skin – no matter what. I’ve said bye-bye to tired looking skin too. #NIVEASA #Sponsored
