I started using a 5% DMAE serum and it seems to be a bit irritating. Is this normal at first? Will skin get used to it? Should I use a lower strength to start? I feels a bit itchy/tingly for a few min. Sometimes, if I apply a little more maybe, my skin turns pinkish.

DMAE can be mildly irritating. Sounds like your level is a bit to high for your sensitivity level.

Thanks - I made it myself Smile Im going to dilute it to make it a 3% serum. I juat looked up the IFP site and she sells a 3%, 5%, 7.5% and 10% serum - looks I need to start with the lowest concentration.

Sorry but I laughed out loud...

DMAE - is it normal to feel a bit itchy, kinda like w/AHA?

I thought it said 'bitchy' not itchy...

*still giggling*

I think its very normal Monica - I've tried so many versions now and they all have some negative effect and I'm not that sensitive. I think it can really duff up your skin barrier. I'm only using it for special occasions these days.

My skin went all crinkley, red and funny using DMAE. They were excellent at PSF and refunded me as my skin obviously wasn't keen on it.
