Nivea has just launched your new skin hero + GIVEAWAY

In an ideal world we would all get 8 hours sleep a night. We wouldn’t drink too much wine on that impromptu mid-week girls night. We wouldn’t stay up till the early hours catching up on work (or binge watching series). We wouldn’t stress about deadlines or indulge in that extra croissant or spend too much time outdoors or live in cities that never stop buzzing.

Doesn’t sound like much of a life though, does it?

Luckily, great skincare can help us to look fantastic even if we’re running low on battery power. Feeding your skin with potent antioxidants helps to defend it against free-radical damage and prevents inflammation that will make you look older, faster (eek!). One of the best ingredients for this is good ol’ Vitamin C, which can boost your skin in the best ways.

Vitamin C is a powerful antioxidant that increases collagen production, fights free radicals, reduces inflammation and enhances your skin repair. In other words, this is the good stuff.

Until now, however, quality Vitamin C products have been super expensive. And then Nivea stepped into the ring with their new Q10plusC range, which is budget friendly and packs a punch.

The hero product, their Anti-Wrinkle + Energy Sleep Cream, contains a high level of pure Vitamin C (Ascorbic Acid) that works while you sleep, so you wake up looking energized (even before your first cup of coffee).

How does it work?

The Energy Sleep Cream let’s your cells take up 50% more oxygen overnight*, which leads to smoother, well-rested looking skin. This then stimulates energy production, needed by the cells to repair and regenerate.

Aside from pure Vitamin C, the cream also contains Coenzyme Q10, another antioxidant that boosts energy production. And at the same time it nourishes with Shea butter and Panthenol. Nivea Q10 plus C 9Lives 4

Seriously, you’re going to love it

I received the products a couple of weeks ago and I think it’s brilliant. The Energy Sleep Cream is light-weight but nourishing, with a mild scent. I could pick up a boost in radiance after just one week.

And thumbs up for the packaging! When it comes to antioxidant skincare, airtight and lightless packaging is essential to preserve those potent ingredients. The Energy Sleep Cream comes in a 100% air-tight and light proof tube (that is also completely recyclable – yay!), which protects the formula and prevents contamination. Oh, and you can roll that tube up tight near the end to squeeze out every last drop (yes, we all do it).

The Energy Sleep Cream has launched in combination with their new Energy Day Care, which is light-weight with a broad spectrum SPF 15, stabilized Vitamin C, Coenzyme Q10 and creatine.

Nivea Q10 plus C 9Lives 1

Best of all? It won’t break the bank!

The Nivea Q10plusC Anti-Wrinkle + Energy Sleep Cream retails for R169,99 for 40ml, and the Q10plusC Anti-Wrinkle + Energy Day Care SPF 15 is priced at R169,99 for 50ml.

GIVEAWAY! Win a hamper worth R1250!

Win a hamper worth R1250, with a professional Oxygen Facial Treatment and the new Nivea Q10PlusC skincare range to try at home. To enter, share one of the ways that Vitamin C boosts your skin. Pop your answers in the comments below or mail sayhello@9lives.co.za. Competition closes 20 October. Open only to residents in Cape Town and surrounds.

    23. Aids In Collagen Production

    Vitamin C is a required component for the production of hydroxyproline and hydroxylysine, both of which are needed to bind the molecules that produce collagen. This, in turn, firms and tones the skin. Collagen deficiency makes the skin dull and lifeless. Collagen rejuvenates the skin from the roots and reduces wrinkles and symptoms of aging.

    Reply
  37. Jana October 12, 2017 at 8:54 pm

    Vitamin C plays a role in collagen production and has antioxidant properties! Oxidation of molecules leads to formation of free radicals that damages cells and causes aging, but antioxidants will stop oxidation from occurring.
