In our last newsletter, we reviewed DMAE and its positive effects on health and appearance. As we know, DMAE is an anti-inflammatory, anti-oxidant, nutrient-like substance that occurs naturally in our bodies. (Fish are the richest food source.) When DMAE is applied to arms, thighs, back, or chest, there is an immediate increased appearance of skin tone and smoothness, most noticeably on the backs of the thighs, where small skin defects are often seen.
Many users find that regular use of Body Toning Lotion with DMAE also decreases the appearance of lumpy, subcutaneous fat (often referred to as cellulite), on legs, thighs, and upper arms. I recommend applying our DMAE-rich Body Toning Lotion in advance of any special event, and before donning short pants, skirts, dresses, or a bathing suit. Many patients find that their skin adopts a healthier, smoother appearance with remarkable rapidity—often, in as few as 10 to 15 minutes. Body Toning Lotion also provides a natural moisturizing effect and can be used after a shower or sun exposure.
To further help your body fight cellulite, drink plenty of pure, non-carbonated spring water throughout the day (eight to 10 full glasses). You will enjoy an extra benefit if you add a generous squeeze of fresh lemon juice. Lemon is rich in bioflavonoids and vitamin C (anti-inflammatory anti-oxidants), and acts as a natural diuretic to help the body shed excess water. Lemon is also a natural detoxifying agent, and many experts believe detoxifying the body helps eliminate the lumpy and bumpy appearance of cellulite.
As my readers know, I recommend a three-tiered approach to enhance skin appearance and optimize overall health: 1) targeted nutritional supplements; 2) topical anti-oxidants; and 3) a daily anti-aging diet that minimizes sugary, starchy foods in favor of the following anti-inflammatory fare:
Fatty cold-water fish such as salmon, mackerel, and sardines, which are rich in protein, DMAE, and Omega-3 fatty acids.
Colorful fruits—especially blueberries, blackberries, strawberries, raspberries and cantaloupe.
Non-starchy vegetables such as broccoli, spinach, cabbage, leafy greens, artichokes, asparagus, onion, and red-yellow peppers.
These foods are low in pro-inflammatory sugars and high in anti-inflammatory anti-oxidants. Their anti-inflammatory effects give the skin a healthy, rosy glow while dietary and topical DMAE help maximize the appearance of underlying skin tone.
To look your absolute best this summer, apply Body Toning Lotion once or twice a day. Remember, we now have automatic shipping so you will never run out of your favorite supplements or topical treatments.
