The advances in technology for the beauty industry are mind boggling. Many of the developments started in either space research by NASA or medical research. Years later the ordinary person at home can enjoy many of the tools that have evolved based on solid scientific evidence. A variety of hand held devices are available for at home skin rejuvenating and treating acne. In most cases what we are trying to achieve is an increased production of collagen and elastin in the skin. For acne skin types elimination of bacteria, accelerated healing and reduction of inflammation are the goals. We feature 2 devices in this article LED lights and Microdermabrasion. LED lights (light- emitting diodes) are a very safe and easy method for increasing the production of collagen and elastin in the skin. While professional machines are much stronger and treat the whole face at one time, home devices are handy and price effective. When acne or pimples are the issue you can often nip it in the bud at an early stage and prevent a full on pimple developing. The colour of the LED light determines the purpose of the treatment.
  • Red is used for skin rejuvenation
  • Blue is for acne or pimples to kill bacteria
  • Yellow is to firm the skin
  • Green reduces redness in cuperose skin
Before buying, it is important to check the powder of these LED devices to give an indication of effectiveness. Home units usually only come in red or blue , sometimes a combination of the two. Yellow and green are more for larger salon units. Red lights 620 670 nm Blue Lights 420 -460 nm Bear in mind home devices will not be as strong as salon or medical machines and you will need to use them regularly to see benefits. However, there are some very good small appliances available. How Red LED light will help your skin:
  • Increase in elasticity.
  • Fine lines eliminated and deeper lines reduced.
  • Skin tone improvement.
  • Less sagging
  • Reduces redness from Rosacea
How Blue LED light will help your skin:
  • Kills bacteria present in pimples
  • Reduces inflammation
  • Blemishes clear much faster
  • Helps Control future outbreaks
Features to watch for:
  1. Battery operated or plug in - ease of use
  2. Size of head and number of LED lights - Bigger heads cover more of the face but harder to get between the eyes
  3. Guarantee
  4. Power capability in nm's covered above
  5. One or more colours in light if you need blue for acne or pimples. Some have seperate coloured heads.
Prices vary from around $70 on e-bay to $300 -$500 in department or specialty stores. I bought a $69 tool on ebay and am very happy with it. Whatever you buy have realistic expectations. Transformation is not going to happen overnight or ever, if the tool is left in a drawer. Microdermabrasion: Hand held battery operated microdermabrasion kits for home users are freely available. Results vary as with any appliance. DermaNew is a reliable brand which gives a result which is visible and feels good. The treatment takes only 2 minutes and can be done at the bathroom sink or in the shower. Dead skin cells are removed using a tool which has a sponge head that vibrates lightly. An exfoliating or resurfacing cream with medical grade corundum crystals is moved over the face with sponge head. Microdermabrasion works well in a few ways.
  • Skin rejuvenating (anti aging)
  • skins prone to blackheads and whiteheads
  • acne skin types.

For pimples and acne problems a different type of exfoliating cream is used. There is only half the amount of crystals and the formulation of the base cream contains special acne active ingredients. This cream is a more drying formulation than the Rejuvenation cream used for clear skin or those who suffer from blackheads. You will need to use this microdermabrasion kit regularly to see results but if you do your skin will show the results. Price range around $100.

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. 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.

      Great product

      I’ve been using MISMO MSM for about 6 months now, and I must say that it has definitely helped with my aches and pains. My feet no longer ache or feel like I’m Walton broken glass when I get up in the morning. And my hands are also moving easier and pain free.
      Thank you.
