The Dish on Fish - "The Lighter Side" of Beauty Secrets

Sardines as a beauty treatment? Of course, why didn't we think of this. Sardines contain a substance called DMAE that produces dramatic results when applied topically to the skin. What results, you may be wondering? Ah, the two biggies . . . tightening and a reduction of fine lines and wrinkles under the eyes. The instructions are simple. Take two sardines, place one under each eye for 10-15 minutes. The results are said to be evident immediately after the first treatment and increase with repetition. Hey, you'll look great, but you won't win a popularity contest with this one. Don't be surprised when everywhere you go you hear everyone whisper, . . . ."what's that smell?" You may look 10 years younger, but your social life will sink like the Titanic with this treatment.
