Benefits of Natural Moisturisers

Benefits of natural moisturisers

Moisturising the skin should be a daily ritual. In a perfect world our skin would not need moisturising but outside forces change this.

So what do we need to look for in a moisturiser that suits your skin?

  • Oils to nourish
  • Hydrators to hold moisture in the skin
  • Rejuvenating ingredients to help reduce lines and wrinkles
  • Essential fatty acids that mimic our own oils to increase skin health

Dry skin needs a higher oil content in the cream.

Combination skin with an oily t-zone needs less oil but still requires some oil and hydrators (humectants) to supply and retain moisture.

Oily skin can work well with special formulations that supply moisturising in an oil free form which keep skin hydrated without oiliness.

We hear "dehydrated" skin used constantly especially from sales assistants on cosmetic counters. All skin types can be dehydrated and this can be caused by different factors.

Dehydrated skin is lacking in moisture (water) - not oil. Often dehydration can be remedied simply by drinking more water. Each cup of coffee, tea or alcohol consumed will dehydrate your skin. A glass of water is required to offset each cup you drink of these beverages.

Ingredients such as Hyaluronic acid, lecithin or glycerin will increase the moisture content held in your skin and impart a dewy plumped appearance to your skin. Hyaluronic Acid is the king of hydrators but often only found in Serums due to the high cost.

Natural oils including macadamia nut oil contain an oil profile very close to human skin. Jojoba has a similar break up of essential fatty acids although it is technically a wax and not an oil. Sweet almond and Apricot kernel oils are also beneficial to the skin. Skin health is greatly improved when these natural oils are included in Natural Moisturiser formulations.

Research has shown Organic Aloe Vera can increase the rate of regeneration of skin cells by many times when used in a generous quantity. Penetration ability of Aloe Vera is legendary.

Problem skin usually has inflammation present. The mineral MSM is perfect for keeping inflammation under control. MSM is organic sulphur (or sulfur) a nutritional supplement originally developed for arthritis and joint pain. Sulphur is present in every cell of the body. When included in a moisturiser an easy solution to inflammation is achieved.

Like so many products or ingredients, a side benefit emerged early in the life of MSM, and that is the softening of skin. When taken as a powder supplement skin is softer on the whole body not just the face. It works from the inside out. Maybe we should call it Magic MSM. In my opinion it is.

MSM is the catalyst for the MISMO range. It brings synergy to the union of natural oils, humectants and anti ageing ingredients. Natural Moisturisers also require the correct pH, a rarely discussed factor in the formulation of a great cream vs a good cream.Apply your Natural Moisturiser twice a day for optimum benefits and put on that beautiful face for the world to see.

THE BEAUTY, HEALING AND RESTORATIVE MINERAL

MSM is known to be highly effective in joint health, muscle recovery, sports nutrition, immune support, and healthy ageing. 

What is MSM?

MSM (Methyl Sulphonyl Methane or Dimethyl Sulfone) is an organic sulphur compound found in all living organisms. It is the purest and most bio-available form of sulphur, one of the essential minerals crucial to life and the regeneration of cells. MSM has traditionally been taken as a food supplement to increase joint health for flexibility and mobility, as well as for strong hair and nails, beautiful skin, and other health conditions from leaky gut syndrome to mild arthritis, osteoporosis, and psoriasis. 

Why do we need to supplement with MSM?

Natural MSM is largely destroyed when our food is processed and can be lost entirely when foods and ingredients are stored for a long period of time. MSM bonds with moisture, so any food which undergoes any sort of dehydration will lack its natural MSM.

For these reasons, and because MSM is so critical for almost every athletic function in active bodies, it is important to consistently supplement with a quality MSM nutritional supplement 

How does MSM work at the cellular level?

Collagen is the principal structural protein holding the skin together and is largely responsible for the skin’s mechanical properties.  Sulphur is integral to the production of collagen and elastin, and MSM is a source of organic Sulphur. 

Approximately half of the body's sulphur content is found in the skin, muscles, cartilage and bones.

How can MSM benefit your skin, hair and nails?

  • Protecting collagen against collagen degrading enzymes
  • Reducing fine lines and wrinkles by boosting collagen and elastin production
  • Boosting the natural production of Glutathione, one of the body's key anti-oxidants ... as an anti-oxidant, MSM will boost the immune system and reduce pigmentation and cellular damage
  • Acting as an anti-inflammatory agent by reducing the production of cytokines (compounds that cause inflammation)
  • Maintaining skin cell membrane flexibility and permeability, promoting an efficient exchange of nutrients and waste products to help keep skin clear
  • Helping to maintaining the body's pH balance

How can MSM help with joint health and support? 

MSM has powerful anti-inflammatory properties and can be used as a natural alternative to help reduce pain from mild arthritis and osteoarthritis related symptoms.

How does MISMO MSM help with exercise recovery?

Our muscles, skin, bones, organs, and connective tissue all rely on sulphur and without it our bodies can not function properly.  MSM is an important nutritional supplement for anyone living an active lifestyle, as it delivers the sulphur and methyl nutrients which are key to the structure of healthy cells in muscle and connective tissue.

MSM is valued by bodybuilders, strength, and power athletes because it supports healthy and flexible cell structures and can help reduce the inflammation of muscle tissue and can offset muscle soreness and joint pain caused by inflammation.

Where is MSM found and how is it manufactured?

MSM is found in the fluid and tissue of all living organisms. It is present in a variety of foods including raw vegetables, eggs, milk and fish, but is lost through cooking and food processing. One of the richest natural supplies is pine trees and cabbage.

Although MSM is abundant in nature, even the richest natural sources only provide MSM in the level of several parts per million. Commercial extraction of MSM from trees is not possible so a process is undertaken which parallels the natural oxidation that occurs in the marine atmosphere and produces MSM that is chemically identical to that found in nature.

How pure is MISMO MSM?

Every batch of our MSM is rigourously tested by an independent laboratory to ensure the highest quality, minimum 99.99% pure MSM.

    How much MISMO MSM should I be taking?

    An average dose is between 2 to 6 grams daily. Most people take a teaspoon (approx. 4 grams) daily. If more relief is needed, increase the dose slowly. Can be taken in water or juice after breakfast, although there are no rules as to when you should take MSM.

    A word of caution ... some people find if they take MSM late in the day, after 4 or 5pm, they do not sleep as well, as it energises them. This is not a general occurrence but worth mentioning.

    WARNINGS: If taking Warfarin or strong blood thinners, do not take MSM without your doctor's approval. Not to be taken by children without a health professional's advice.  MSM can also interfere with the accuracy of the blood test for liver enzymes by sometimes producing false positive results. It is recommended you cease taking MSM at least 4 days before these blood tests. You can resume after the test.

      Great service and great product. I know that feeling when I have run out of MSM, lethargic, physically, mentally and generally not my best self.
