Dry Skin Or Dehydrated Skin?

The term dehydrated skin has taken on a life of its own in recent years. Dry skin and dehydrated skin are very different conditions. Most beauty counter assistants at a department store will tell you your skin is dehydrated. It seems to have been a standard practice for years and has to be the best sales pitch of all times. How many times have you been sold over-rated products based on how bad you felt after having your skin pronounced by one such counter assistant as "Dehydrated" with a solemn shake of the head? Equipment used by beauty therapists helps confirm an initial visual diagnosis by the therapist whether the skin is dry, normal or oily type. From this point a diagnosis of dehydrated may be made. Any skin ˜type' can be dehydrated. A magnifying lamp is a piece of equipment used by beauty therapists to help accurately analyse the skin. Cleansed skin is required to perform an accurate assessment. A beauty counter assistant with no tools is not in a position to judge skin dehydrated. The customer is often wearing make-up which makes a diagnosis more difficult. There is a vast difference between dry skin and dehydrated skin. Dry skin is a skin condition and means skin is lacking in oil (lipids). Dehydrated skin is lacking in moisture (water) and can be caused by many other skin problems. Oily skin, as well as dry skin can be dehydrated. Dehydrated skin is directly affected by the fluid intake of a person. If fluid intake is not correctly maintained daily dehydrated skin will result. Drinking coffee, tea, soft drinks and alcohol will exacerbate dehydrated skin. Other skin problems such as excess keratinisation (excessive dead skin cells), impaired lymphatic system and accelerated skin ageing can also be caused by dehydrated skin. Weather conditions directly affect hydration of the skin. In summer when humidity is higher water loss through the skin is minimized. In winter water loss (trans- epidermal water loss) is much greater. Dehydrated skin can be improved quickly by increasing water intake and with the use of quality skin care containing humectants and glycoaminoglycans (or GAG's for short). These ingredients include glycerin, sodium PCA, Lactic Acid, Lecithin, Urea and Hyaluronic Acid. If you are male or someone with oily skin BOOST is a really good oil free moisturiser which contains lashings of Hyaluronic Acid; sodium PCA; Aloe Vera and MSM to name a few ingredients. BOOST really plumps and smooths the skin without adding oil. The king of hydrators is Hyaluronic Acid is also known as Sodium Hyaluronate or Hyaluronan. The beauty of this ingredient is that it can hold up to 1000 times its own weight in water. Because Hyaluronic Acid is naturally present in the skin it is a huge bonus to be able to supplement skin topically. MISMO Rejuvenating Gel will help improve dehydrated skin tremendously.

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 peak flexibility and mobility, as well as for strong hair and nails, beautiful skin, and numerous other health conditions from leaky gut syndrome to damaged joints, mild arthritis, osteoporosis, and psoriasis. MISMO is the first premium skincare range to harness MSM’s highly beneficial properties.

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, the body's key cellular anti-oxidant ... 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)
  • Providing the body with the raw materials needed to create new cells, and to repair damaged ones
  • Maintaining skin cell membrane flexibility and permeability, promoting an efficient exchange of nutrients and waste products, to help keep skin clear
  • Helpking to maintaining the body's pH balance

How can MSM help with joint health and  support? 

As we age, joint pain becomes more and more frequent. MSM helps reduce inflammatory responses and swelling that arise from joint pain and fatigue. 

Since MSM has powerful anti-inflammatory properties, it’s often used as a natural alternative to medications to improve mild arthritis and osteoarthritis related symptoms.

How does MISMO MSM help with exercise recovery?

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 reduce the inflammation of muscle tissue and joints, In this way, MSM helps new muscle development supports athletic recovery, and can help offset muscle soreness, joint pain and inflammation.

Our muscles, skin, bones, organs, and connective tissue all rely on sulphur and without it, our bodies can not function properly. Sulphur is crucial for the uptake and absorption of vitamins and minerals.  Sulphur is a basic organic component of protein, and important to building new muscle tissue and protecting existing lean mass.

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 

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 (approximately 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.

    BLOOD TESTS: MSM can interfere with the accuracy of the 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.
