Skin Care Products With Dmae: How Much Do You Need To Stop Sagging Skin

Watch out: PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals), is not going to like this. Researchers used rabbits to discover just how much of the cosmeceutical DMAE it takes to plump up a wrinkled face.

And so that those rabbits’ sacrifices to the world of beauty are not vain, let us employ those tidbits of aesthetic info for the betterment of antiaging advocates around the world.

While members of the skin care industry call DMAE (agent 2-dimethylaminoethanol) a cosmeceutical, the Food and Drug Administration does not recognize that term. The pseudo scientific name cosmeceutical attributes both medicinal and cosmetic properties to a given skin care ingredient.

Briefly, naming a cosmetic cosmeceutical enables manufactures to skip the FDA’s timely and costly drug application process that calls for mammal martyrs.

Oddly enough, cosmeceuticals comprising DMAE can approach the costs of prescriptions drugs. Moreover, DMAE does affect the structure or any function of the body, which in the FDA’s lexicon, makes it a drug. So just how much of this, uhmm, drug do you need to get your wrinkle fix? According to a study from the British Journal of Dermatology, the magic number is three percent.

In the study, scientists applied a compound containing three percent DMAE by weight the a rabbit’s ear. Upon observation, the examiners credited the DMAE with inducing vacuolization in the rabbit’s skin.

Vacuolization takes place as the skin cells develop more spaces between each cell. This space expansion creates a temporary skin plumping effect akin how a down pillow gets bigger simply by fluffing it up and adding more air between each feather.

With time, the spaces dissipate, your skin looks sunken-again- and you have to reapply the DMAE enhanced cosmeceutical. So, if you are looking around a recently Windexed cosmetics booth at your neighborhood Macy’s, just confirm that that , one-half ounce of wrinkle eater cream contains at least three percent DMAE by weight.

And before you pull out your VISA card to rack up more airline points, test the cream or gel on your forearm to insure that you have no allergies to this skin plumping cosmeceutical.

    How do l get rid of this scar?
    A few months ago I got bit by a dog and had to get about five stitches. The stitches are gone and the wound is healed and closed but l have a scar. I have been applying some face sculpting creams and DMAE for those who know what they are, but it hasnt been helping much. How do I get the scar to go away?

      Mederma can work wonders. The only thing is that you need to start applying in right after the wound has healed. And according to the tube, you need to apply it a couple times a day (3 to 4) for about 8 weeks it says (but this is for new scars. For existing scars, you must apply several times a day for 3 to 6 months). It can also be a pain in the butt because you must fully rub it in, or there will be Mederma boogers all over where ever you applied it. Also, it costs about a little under $20 for a full tube, but it lasts a while. But it works well, and better than any other scar medicine I’ve used. Hope this helps!

    Which cream is better, for you/over all better in general?
    What cream is better:
    1) NutriBiotic, Face Creme, Tissue Revitalizing, 2 fl oz (59 ml)


    2) Source Naturals – Skin Eternal Cream with Lipoic Acid, DMAE, C-Ester & CoQ10 4 oz

    I just finished reading a book on skin care and it says one should find a cream that has following antioxidants:
    – Vitamin C ester (Ascorbyl Palmitate)
    – Tocotrienol (Vitamin E, High Potency E/ HPE)
    – Alpha Lipoic Acid (Thioctic Acid, 6,8-dithiooctanoic Acid)
    both the cream have all the three. but clearly they both have other very good stuff in them. which on has more better stuff in them? over all better?

    How do i get rid of acne scars, melasma, black blemishes on my face?
    I’ve had melasma on my cheekbones for a few years and acne scars come once in a while. Without makeup, i dont feel my skin is beautiful because i used to go out without sunscreen. I didnt know that you shouldnt go in the sun after using products with aha & other skin lightening agents in them but that was then, now i know. I’ve discovered some natural products that i’ve heard are greatcalled ‘Shea Butter’ and another is Pure Aloe vera from leaves. Also vitamin c – ester c cream, alpha lipoic acid cream & DMAE cream are said to work miracles on troubled skin. Google these and i think you’ll be pleasantly surprised. I’ll let you know how it goes and how long it took me to see results when next i log in. Please if you know any other better creams or natural products than the ones i mentioned let me know. Good luck on your journey to skin success and wish me luck too. bye

      I have the same problem…I’ve had acne but when the spots go but leave red marks on my face for sometimes weeks – and the places I’ve had a lot of spots in the past look discoloured and darker than the rest.

      I use clean and clear or neutrogena clear skin – both contain salicylic acid which prevents breakouts and gradually evens the skin tone out too.

      Another suggestion is the scrub you can get called ‘resurface’ from L’oreal. You only use it a couple of times a week (and use at night because it makes your face red!). It really works not just with the colouring but also the texture – smoothes it back out.

      And my final suggestion is ‘sheer cover’ mineral foundation. You see it on infomercials a lot…tacky I know! But it really works. You can buy it on eBay too so it’s easy for you to get some to try it out. You use the tiniest amount but because it doesn’t settle into enlarged pores and it contains minerals that reflect light, it disguises any kind of ‘scarring’ and also it stops you getting spots because it doesn’t block pores. The minerals in it reflect light a bit too which acts as a kind of concealer. It’s hard to explain but it’s fantastic. Just make sure not to use too much – and apply with a kabuki brush starting from the outside and working in so you don’t end up with an over made up nose!

      Hope this helps sweetie – good luck XX
