Youthful skin is firm because the muscle fibers under skin are short, thick and taut. As we age and muscle fibers lengthen and loosen the skin loses its elasticity. As an alternative to cosmetic surgery, a gentler alternative is DMAE.
Research shows that DMAE helps to improve skin tone, suggesting that the topical application of DMAE will help to firm skin and restore elasticity. Another study added that DMAE helps to reduce the appearance of lines and wrinkles. DMAE has also demonstrated antioxidant and anti-inflammatory properties, both of which can help visibly slow the aging process.
