How To: Make Homemade DMAE Face Lift Cream for Removing Wrinkles

Make Homemade DMAE Face Lift Cream for Removing Wrinkles

Want a face lift?  Scared to go under the knife?  Then, your solution is dimethylaminoethanol.

Um... what is dimethylaminoethanol?

Well, most people know it as DMAE, and if you're a Dr. Oz fan, chances are you've already come How to Make Homemade DMAE Face Lift Cream for Removing Wrinklesacross this surgery-less solution for looking younger, healthier and wrinkle-free.

Dr. Oz did a segment called Dr. Oz's Alternative Health All-Stars and then followed it up with a special segment on advice from Dr. Nicholas Perricone, one of the Alternative Health All-Stars, on how to get rid of wrinkles and prevent skin cancer.  [via DrOzFans]

One of the methods for removing wrinkles from your face was DMAE cream, and it's said that you would immediately see a change in your skin and an increase in your skin's radiance.  The only problem is that face cream products containing DMAE are really expensive. 

Luckily, DMAE is sold as a stand-alone supplement, and it is relatively inexpensive.  Which means you can make your own DMAE cream for a fraction of its usual commercial price.  [via Suite101]

And how do you do this?  Well, it depends on if you've acquired liquid or powder...

Step 1 From Liquid DMAE

If you've gotten your hands on the liquid version of DMAE, you're lucky, because there's less work!

Just pour a few drops into the chosen base (the cream or oil you are going to "enhance" or use as a carrier) and mix thoroughly.

Step 2 From Powered DMAE

If you could only find the DMAE powder, that's okay.  It's still pretty easy to get ready.

Open a capsule and put approximately half of it into a small container (such as a large bottle cap) and add a few drops of distilled water.  The DMAE powder will promptly dissolve.  Then mix it thoroughly with your chosen base.

The quantity of DMAE recommended by the cosmetic industry is usually 3% of the composition.

Step 3 Add As a Base

As a base you can use any skin care product you wish or normally use.  Many people prefer very simple and inexpensive creams (such as Nivea Soft).  But you can also use totally natural base carriers.  The important thing is that the base should be as deeply absorbed by the skin as possible, because the better the transdermal abilities of the carrier base – meaning that it penetrates deep into the layers of the epidermis – the better the DMAE is likely to work.  Among the best natural transdermal agents are sesame oil and aloe vera.  (If you use aloe vera gel, you should know that the addition of DMAE will instantly make the gel runny.)

Step 4 Use It!

Use the product as you would normally use a facial cream.  (You can also use it as a cleanser, wiping it off after 15 or 20 minutes.)

And that's it!  For more information, visit:

Nobody guesses my age.,,I plan on continued use along with continued knowledge of skin care.

Hi Dear, can you tell what other ingredients You are mixing.
Thank You,
Sincerely Marine

I've been using DMAE serum for years! After I wash my face with mild soap, I spray on my face, ((small spray bottle from Sally's) a mixture of pure witch hazel and pure Alo Vera (about $1 a bottle ea. at Dollar General). While it's still a little wet, I put a dollop (quarter sz) of simple moisturizer ( also at Dollar General - cheap in my left hand. I then add two squirts of the DMAE serum from Source Natural (on line purchase). The serum is expensive, but it lasts quite a while. The other stuff can be bought cheap for probably about $10 and the small spray bottle from Sally's is less than two dollars. I'm 70 and most people think I'm much younger. No crows feet, no face or neck wrinkles, no ll lines between brows. You don't have to be wealthy and spend a ton of money for such care. My 80 yr old husband uses it too and also looks much younger!

I'm using DMAE serum - IDK if it's psychological or I'm just really sensitive, but I feel it working. That said, I still have to train myself to stop slacking with my skin care.

My face hadn't plummeted but I was noticing tiny changes. A miniscule drop of my brows. Those little lines under my eyes that have been there since i was a kid started to spread, still not deep lines, but a micro-wrinkle is still a wrinkle and will only get deeper if you don't do something about it. Right under my chin where the neck meets the jawline, felt vaguely slack, and I don't want to be a sinker, sagger, or double chinner if I can help it. Cheeks just aren't what they used to be. I could keep rambling, but it boils down to - I'm vain and if Father Time and Mother Nature wanna tussle? WE TUSSLE!

I figured the sooner I start using products like DMAE serum after noticing changes the better. So I'm trying hard to get my act together before time and those awful crows get the chance to march all over my face.

The booster serum that I use feels like slippery water/Korean essence. According to Dr. Denese that weight will not interfere with SPF. I use the one from Vitamin Shoppe $6.99. If mixing DMAE supplement wit a cream I suggest getting airless pump containers(or reusing them from serums and gels) and filling them with Vitamin Shoppe's Vitamin C cream.

It's a treatment cream, not a feel good cream. I doubt it would interfere with SPF for that reason. Also DMAE and Vitamin C play well together, while the Vitamin C cream has some of the same ingredients as the serum + shea butter, which is also really good for your skin.

I plan to get Alpha Lipoic booster serum and that new Neutrogena SPF next. It's supposed to be a liquid SPF that you can't feel!
