In a recent study, it was discovered that one of the top three skin complaints of South African women is a tired-looking complexion.
Hardly groundbreaking news, I know, but what is, is that Nivea has launched a range to combat it.
I doubt there is one of you reading this who hasn’t suffered from a dull complexion at some stage. Stress, lack of sleep, pollution, poor diet and excess alcohol can all reduce our skin to dull as dishwater.
Nivea’s new Q10 plus Anti-Wrinkle Energy range has been developed for young women who want to prevent the ageing process for as long as possible, while having a glowing complexion way into their thirties and beyond.
The formula, which contains Nivea’s miracle ingredient, Q10 that protects the skin from free radical damage and Creatine, an amino acid that slows down cell ageing, forms a strong defence against the first signs of ageing (mainly fine lines and pigmentation).
In addition to this duo, the Day Cream SPF15 contains Goji berry extract to help the skin further regenerate. It can do this thanks to its concentration of Vitamin A.
The Serum also contains extra help in the form of hyaluronic acid, a molecule that occurs naturally in the skin, and is capable of holding up to 1000 times its weight in water. This obviously retains moisture under the skin’s surface – giving it a plumper appearance, essentially smoothing-out wrinkles.
The Nivea Q10 plus Anti-Wrinkle Energising Day Cream SPF15; Q10 plus Anti-Wrinkle Energy Serum and Q10 plus Anti-Wrinkle Energy Eye Roll-On, R149.99 each are all available now at leading retailers countrywide.
