Learn How DMAE Can Firm And Lift Sagging Skin

If you have read Dr. Nicholas Perricone's beauty books, ( namely one of his most popular ones, "The Wrinkle Cure") throughout its pages, you would see the letters DMAE, over and over again.

What exactly is DMAE?

In quick beauty speak, DMAE is a superb firming agent for the skin.

The real word is---dimethylaminoethanol.

If you believe Dr. Perricone's beauty research, then you would learn that DMAE is a miracle nutrient. It's even found in natural sources like salmon. You can take DMAE supplements, and use topical DMAE.

DMAE has the power to improve the appearance of sagging skin. It can remove soften and diminish undereye bags, firm neck lines, and even give you fuller lips.

"When DMAE is applied to the skin, the skin looks firmer, less lined and smoother. There is an immediate improvement in the appearance of elasticity and luminosity to the skin. DMAE enhances the appearance of facial contours. Clinical Results after 2 weeks of use:
74% of participants reported significant improvement in skin firmness
66% of participants showed improvement in fine lines and wrinkles, Perricone explains."

In other words, look for skin serums and creams containing DMAE in the list of ingredients.

Since we started talking about Dr. Perricone and his beauty obsession with this so-called miracle nutrient, then we will look at his products first:

ADVANCED Eye Area Therapy - 0.5 ozFeatured in Lucky, Real Simple, US Weekly & WWD Beauty magazines

On a much cheaper beauty note, and looking at another well-respected skin care brand, we did a little digging and found a competitive DMAE beauty treatment:

2. RoC Protient Fortify Lift and Define Eye Cream ($25, 0.5 Oz, at local drugstores).

It works - the light, silky fluid absorbs quickly and begins working immediately with a unique blend of wheat polymer and DMAE a high performance tightening agent to help strengthen and tone the skin around your eyes.

In addition to the eye cream, ROC offers several face creams and serums with the 'protient and lift' features.

As Dr. Perricone writes in The Wrinkle Cure:

"We do not have to age like our parents. We can hold on to our vitality and look well into our later years. Plastic surgery isn't the only way to keep the aging process at bay. With the proper care, you can have fabulous skin in your forties, fifties, sixties, and beyond."
