What is DMAE and what are DMAE benefits in skincare?
DMAE is an abbreviated term for an antioxidant membrane stabilizer called dimethylaminoethanol. DMAE can be consumed orally (KRS products are intended for topical, external use only, not internal), or you can apply it directly to the skin to benefit from its skin enhancing benefits. DMAE helps to tighten skin and reduce sagging, improve firmness and elasticity, smooth lines and wrinkles, and brighten the skin. What’s more, it will enhance the effects of alternative antioxidants and is, therefore, best used in combination with Vitamins A, E and C or alpha lipoic acid.
DMAE and it’s powerful anti-aging benefits
One of the most important benefits DMAE provides for the skin is antioxidant protection that defends against free radicals. Free radicals damage the skin and contribute to the signs of early aging, including wrinkles and fine lines. DMAE strengthens skin cells and their membranes and in doing so protects the cell’s structure from damaging free radicals.
When DMAE is added to skin care products, it will help in lending some muscular tightening attributes (this is what happens when the cell structures are strengthened) and it helps the skin look smoother, tighter and, therefore, younger! Is that not what every girl wants? Tight, smooth, and young-looking skin?
DMAE not only keeps the cell structure protected, it diminishes the amount of stress a cell must endure by protecting it and preventing the production of arachidonic acid, which is a chemical in the body that causes both inflammation and pain. The antioxidant and structural support of the cell contributes to a firmer and more radiant skin, with less incidence of broken blood vessels, skin discoloration, and wrinkles.
Essentially, DMAE is one of the best defenses, not only against natural free radical damage as we age, but also in helping defy the effects of muscular sagging.
What are free radicals, and how do they damage the skin?
To truly understand DMAE benefits, it’s important to understand free radicals — what they do and how they work. The older we get, the more free radicals accrue in the body.
Free radicals are molecules of oxygen that end up losing an electron due to interactions with different molecules. The loss of an electron makes the cell unstable so it seeks to become stable once more. In doing so the unstable free radical make an effort to bond with other electrons (these electrons can be stolen from a healthy cell). This causes a nasty chain reaction because when the free radical is stabilized it just destabilized a separate cell to do so, causing the next cell to seek out the possibility of stabilization. A vicious skin damaging cycle ensues!
How are free radicals formed?
Free radicals are created in a number of ways, including through digestion, breathing, and exposure to environmental pollutants, cigarette smoke, and sunlight. Antioxidants are your body’s natural defense system against free radical damage and DMAE is an important component of such a defense system. Of course, your body cannot always keep pace with the amount of free radical destruction cells encounter, and this is why we need to consume foods high in vitamins and minerals and to use antioxidant containing supplements to ensure the body gets all the help it needs to keep you healthy and looking your best.
DMAE not only has a powerful antioxidant role, it also can help in diminishing issues with skin sagging.
DMAE promotes the creation of acetylcholine, which in turn promotes greater tone in the muscles. The result is smoother, firmer, clearer, and younger looking skin. DMAE penetrates beyond the superficial layer of the skin, making it a powerful method of dealing with wrinkles and lines – some antioxidants only affect the surface of the skin.
We highly recommend our DMAE Serum if you want to firm and tone your skin and revive your youthful glow!
Our serum contains 4 percent DMAE and is used for promoting smoother, firmer skin by diminishing dull looking skin and acting as a defense against the signs of aging such as fine lines and wrinkles.
Additional antioxidants are added to our DMAE serum, including Alpha Lipoic Acid, Vitamin E, Gotu Kola, CoQ10, and Green Tea, all of which offer additional defense against the signs of aging!
A solution for neck firming
Sagging, crepey skin, and deep wrinkles on the neck are some of the most common skin concerns that we hear about from women. It IS possible to improve this area without invasive procedures. The key is consistent treatment with the right product.
There’s no getting around it, if we want to improve the appearance of signs of aging on the neck, we have to target the face at the same time. Why? These areas of the skin aren’t just neighbors, they’re completely interconnected! A sagging jawline and prominent jowls actually result from sagging of facial skin, leaving the neck more vulnerable to sagging as well.
The Face & Neck Firming Duo is an effective two-step system comprised of our Collagen Booster Intense Repair Serum and our bestselling DMAE Serum. When used morning and night, this system simultaneously targets loss of firmness and elasticity on the face, neck, and chest for optimal results.
Collagen constitutes about 70% of skin mass, giving it thickness and elasticity. Aging depletes the quantity and quality of collagen. Actives in our Collagen Booster Intense Repair Serum work to restore what age takes away.
Among some of the powerhouse actives in this system, hydrolyzed collagen and stabilized vitamin C stimulate collagen synthesis, while alpha lipoic acid refines uneven texture and protects existing collagen from degradation. DMAE dramatically lifts and firms over time as hyaluronic acid plumps up the skin for an immediate volume boost. rh-Oligopeptide-1 signals skin cells to rev up collagen production for genuine firming effects that leave your face, neck, and chest smoother and more sculpted-looking with consistent daily use.
