How MISMO Can Safeguard Your Skin from Summer Scarring

How MISMO Can Safeguard Your Skin from Summer Scarring

Summer is now in full swing, and many of us eagerly embrace the warmth and fun it brings. However, with the sunshine comes a potential risk that we are all too familiar with—scarring from sun exposure. Read on to see how a combination of our sunscreens, hyaluronic acid serums and cell soother can be the ultimate team in the fight against sun-induced scars.

Understanding the Relationship Between Sun and Scarring

Sun exposure is a double-edged sword. While it provides us with essential vitamin D and that sun kissed glow, it also poses the risk of scarring. UV rays can interfere with the natural healing process of the skin, damaging skin and leaving behind scars. Whether you're dealing with existing scars or aiming to prevent new ones, a comprehensive approach to sun protection is crucial, especially here in Australia.

The Role of SPF

Sunscreen is your first line of defense against scarring caused by the sun. Our SPF formulations are not just a guard; they're a fortress for your skin. By applying a generous amount of SPF, you create a protective barrier that acts as a shield against harmful UVA and UVB rays. This not only prevents further damage to your skin but also reduces the risk of scars darkening or becoming more prominent. Our Mineral Sunscreen with SPF 50 works wonders for longer days outside and at the beach, and our Ultra Moisturising SPF 15 perfect for everyday use (with the added bonus of moisturising too!).

Hyaluronic Acid

Enter hyaluronic acid—the skincare superhero that takes hydration to a whole new level. Hyaluronic acid (aka sodium hyaluronate) is a naturally occurring substance in the body that holds water and helps keep skin hydrated and plump. When incorporated into your skincare routine, it works wonders in reducing the appearance of scars and promoting a smoother complexion. We love Hyaluronic acid at MISMO, which is why we've included it in our Anti Wrinkle CreamRejuvenating SerumBoost MoisturiserBlemish GelNew Age Moisturiser and Ultra Moisturing SPF Sunscreen.

Bring on the Aloe!

Those times when the sun gets the better of us, aloe vera gel becomes our best friend. But why stick to plain old aloe? Cell Soother is a highly concentrated multifunctional gel, combining the benefits of MSM with the renowned properties of organic Aloe Vera. The formulation promotes the shedding of dead skin cells while its moisturising characteristics assist with the skin's renewal.

Aloe Vera's moisturising, soothing and healing abilities have been recognised and used for centuries for nurturing the skin, while MSM (organic sulphur) is known for its many benefits one of which is its ability to create new healthy cells, which are necessary to reduce scar tissue. 

Why the Combination Matters

The synergy between sunscreen and hyaluronic acid is a game-changer in the fight against scarring. Sunscreen protects your skin from the sun's harmful rays, while hyaluronic acid goes beyond, nourishing and replenishing your skin's moisture. Together, they form a potent alliance that not only prevents new scars from forming but also aids in the gradual reduction of existing ones.

Aloe Vera contains Vitamin A, B, C and E, as well as 20 of the 22 amino acids and an array of minerals that help rejuvenate cells deep into the skin. MSM prevents the cross-linking of collagen which results in more prominent scars. By adopting a holistic approach to sun protection and skincare, you're not just guarding against potential scars; you're investing in the health and longevity of your skin. Embrace summer responsibly, and give your skin the care it deserves.

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 

What is the science of MSM?

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

What is the difference between Distilled Ultra-Pure MSM and Pure-Crystalline MSM?

With the distilled product, the MSM solution is heated up to a point where the MSM is released as a vapour and the pure crystals are formed and harvested as the vapour cools on the inside surface of a distillation column.  The heating-up of the MSM solution and the subsequent cooling and harvesting process requires a lot more energy, and hence the reason why the price is a bit higher.

With the crystalline product, the MSM solution is "spun" at super-high speed in a centrifuge and the MSM crystals are formed on the walls of the centrifuge.  And although the MSM solution is highly-pure before the crystallisation process begins (having undergone a reverse-osmosis filtration process), there is a remote possibility that if there are any trace impurities in the solution they can become encapsulated in the crystalline structure.


How pure is MISMO MSM?

Every batch of our MSM is rigourously tested by an independent laboratory to ensure the highest possible quality with no additives or anti-caking agents. MSM is gluten free and vegan / vegetarian. Packaged in Australia from imported ingredients.

    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.

    It is recommended to take MSM in the morning, as it can give a boost of energy. Side effects when starting out with MSM can be nausea and/or headaches. This is not uncommon and is linked to the detoxifying benefits of MSM. We recommend lowering your dose if experiencing these symptoms and gradually increasing with time.

    WARNINGS: If taking 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.

      Works for me

      As well as my cell signalling product that I take I have added Mismo as it was recommended by a friend. Getting older I personally find it assists with my body as I can handle the gym with more energy and don't have as many aches afterwards.

      Marine collagen

      I am finding after starting the marine collagen my arthritis has eased quite significantly and my skin doesn't feel as dry. Also taking it along with the M.S.M it is working really well together.
