Avoid Pimples by Cleansing Correctly

There's a few reason why you can be experiencing blemishes. Dirt, oil and hormones can all play a part but other factors like leftover sunscreen can also contribute to pimples. With the hot Australian Summers you want to make sure you're protecting your skin but also not suffering from blemishes as a result of using them.

A great tip straight up is to choose a moisturising sunscreen that includes zinc as the SPF instead of a chemical ingredient. Zinc provides a physical barrier and sits on the top of skin and doesn't clog as opposed to many chemical sunscreens that contain pimple causing ingredients such as mineral oils and silicone. They just don't let your skin breath unlike natural sunscreens. Now even when using a zinc based sunscreen you still need to be vigilant about properly cleansing your face after being out in the sun. If you're not washing the sunscreen off correctly this can also lead to pimples and blackheads. Cleansing twice can help, with a focus on problematic areas like around the nostrils. Active Face Cleanser is an AHA/BHA Cleanser that can offer a deep cleanse and has a dual purpose of also exfoliating which is a great solution. AHA stands for Alpha Hydroxy Acid (Glycolic Acid in this case) which loosen the glue which holds dead skin cells together on the skin. BHA stands for Beta Hydroxy Acid (Salicylic Acid) which dissolve dead skin cells in clogged pores. Together they are a formidable team which really are a cleanser/exfoliator when used in a cleanser or face wash. If using an AHA Cleanser/BHA then the golden tip is to leave on for 30 seconds to let the AHA's (Alphy Hydroxy Acids) do their job with loosening the glue that holds the dead skin cells together that lead to pimples. An optimum cleansing routine should look like this
  1. Always wash your hands before starting to remove any leftover grime and dirt.
  2. Wet your face with lukewarm water. Always use lukewarm water never hot or cold.
  3. Massage the Active Face Cleanser into your face using a circular motion. Spend time on all areas of your face including your hairline, jawline and nostrils too. As suggested above leave Active Face Cleanser on your skin for 30 seconds.
  4. Remove the cleanser with lukewarm water with your hands or better still a microfibre face cloth. Microfibre face cloths are great for preserving the acid mantle of the skin and if skin is prone to acne, these are perfect as the cloth removes surface bacteria and stimulates blood circulation and regeneration of new cells. Tip A great one for pre-teens getting them into the habit of using these. Even if they forget to use a cleanser just by using a damp Microfibre Cloth on their face is very effective.
  5. Moisturise and or serum

Being aware of removing the daily grime off your face and making sure you follow a good cleansing routine can reduce the incidents of any unwanted breakouts and keep your skin healthy and blemish free.

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.
