The Benefits of Exfoliation

Skin Exfoliation or the removal of dead skin cells is a vital step in Anti Aging and improving skin health and appearance. Shedding of dead cells is a normal part of the skin renewal process. There are many methods used to exfoliate the skin and these include micro dermabrasion, Ultrasound, Alpha Hydroxy Acids, peels and products to which beads or granules have been added. All work in different ways. Dead skin cells should be removed regularly to expose the new, fresh skin on your face. Failure to exfoliate skin will have many consequences.
  • Skin will lose its natural glow and look dull.
  • Wrinkles are more likely to form.
  • Skin care products will not be able to penetrate the dead cells and work as effectively.
  • Pimples, blackheads, acne and Rosacea will find a breeding ground.

People who suffer from the condition Rosacea, tend to have thicker layers of dead cells which need to be removed regularly, gently. One of the main reasons for pimples, blackheads, whiteheads and cyst type eruptions is clogging of the pores by a combination of dead skin cells and excess natural oil called sebum. Skin types prone to these problems will improve by exfoliating every second day, preferably at night. Normal skin types will benefit from exfoliation 2-3 times a week while sensitive skins will be happiest with once a week gentle treatments. As we age, natural exfoliation takes longer and therefore skin needs some help to accelerate the shedding process. For home use there are choices. The simplest choice of Exfoliating cream is a Natural creamy Exfoliator with a cleanser base and rice grains that will gently remove dead skin cells without irritation to the skin. Be wary of ground shells that can potentially scratch the delicate skin surface. MISMO also produces Microderm a stronger exfoliator which contains Bamboo Powder. This is the gold quality in exfoliating creams. To use exfoliating cream, wet the face and apply a pea sized (or as directed) amount of product to the hands. Wipe the wet hands together to distribute the exfoliant evenly and use the whole hand to make gentle circles on the face. This way you will not be applying a large amount of cream to one area of the face and will avoid any possible irritation. Use your middle fingers to work exfoliant into nose creases. An often neglected area of the face is behind and below the ears and the neck. Please remember to use moisturiser on this area too. Work the Natural Exfoliator cream gently for about 30 seconds to loosen the "glue" that holds dead cells in place and rinse well with cool or lukewarm water. Backs of hands, arms, shoulders and legs all benefit from a regular exfoliation followed by a pampering lotion. Any Serum, Moisturiser or acne treatment applied to fresh exfoliated skin will then penetrate and perform the function they were designed for much more efficiently.

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.
