As much fun as it is to talk about (and eat) food, and as much as we might try to eat the right foods, we often need supplements, i.e. vitamins and minerals added to our diet to assure it's complete. Eating the right foods can also help our skin, (the largest organ in out body, by the way) but supplements also come into play here as well.
There is a great facial skin cream that I love, that contains necessary "nutrients" to keep skin healthy and younger looking. This is the stuff: Source Naturals Skin Eternal DMAE Cream .
DMAE is for dimethylaminoethanol, a nutrient that is coincidentaly found in salmon. DMAE acts as a building block for neurotransmitters which communicate with the muscles. These neurotransmitters decline as we age, resulting in decreased muscle tone. Additionally, DMAE acts as an antioxidant, stablizing cell membranes and protecting them from free radical damage. As cell membranes deteriorate, the skin starts to age. DMAE helps the skin cells to be renewed and restored.So much for technical explanations.
I like Skin Eternal DMAE Cream because I feel my skin has more elasticity while looking firmer - if that makes sense. It seems to have a plumping effect and has improved my fine lines and wrinkles. I use it all over my face and neck before I go to bed at night, and in the morning I put it specifically on my crow's feet, under my eyes (be careful not to get it in your eyes) and in my nasolabial folds (smile lines).
It seems a little greasy at first when you apply it, but absorbs quickly into your skin. It is a buttery yellow color with very little smell. A little goes a long way, and a jar will last you several months. I really think that using this religiously has improved my skin and given it a younger appearance.
Source Naturals carries a whole line of products, many of which I haven't tried, because I like to switch things up and give other product lines a try as well. But I would feel confident purchasing other products in their line as I am so impressed with the results from this DMAE Cream .
I will be blogging in the future bout some other products - from different companies that I also love.
If you would like to read up more on DMAE, as well as other anti-aging topics, I reference this book often, " The Perricone Prescription ".
Please always remember that it is important for your skin to stay hydrated. Drinking eight or so glasses of water a day is a simple habit not just for your skin, but for your body in general.
