Should I Apply DMAE Supplements on My Skin? - Wrinkle FAQs - Dr. Perricone

I am taking supplements including DMAE, will this help my wrinkles? Can I break them open to apply them to the skin?
DMAE is a wonderful supplement to take as it has been found to enhance mental cognition and clarity. Supplementation is an important aspect of health and skin care as it can often provide things that your body is lacking. Supplements can contribute to an overall program that can help the skin from the inside out.

That results will be found by breaking open capsules and applying the contents to the skin is something of an old wives' tale. Doing so is similar to rubbing aspirin on an injury -- it does nothing. The molecules are often too big to be absorbed by the skin. I recommend instead trying products that contain DMAE immersed in a vehicle that is readily absorbed by the cells.
