Full Answer

Light moisturizers that have a low oil-to-water ratio are useful for use during the day. They allow the skin to breathe and can be applied under makeup. Some moisturizers also double as sun screens, so combining DMAE can give three benefits; protection from the sun, moistening the skin and treating aging lines.

Calendula cream is also a great base cream for adding DMAE. It has antioxidants that protect the skin from free radicals and also has anti-bacterial, antiviral and anti-inflammatory properties. To make a homemade base cream of calendula flowers, one must fill a glass jar with dried calendula flowers and add 8 ounces of olive oil. They should then tightly cap the lid and shake it. Store the jar in a cool, dry place away from sunlight and continue shaking it periodically for about 2 weeks. Users must then strain the oil from the plant sediment, adding vitamin E oil for preservation, as well as other ingredients, like 2 ounces of almond oil, 2 ounces of shea butter and 2 ounces of cocoa butter. They should then make sure all the ingredients mix together in a pot over low heat, melting everything into an even mixture. At this point, they can add as much DMAE as they desire, making sure that this ingredient mixes evenly in, as well. They should then let the mixture solidify before use.
