As you probably already know, MSM (methylsulfonylmethane) is the star ingredient of the MISMO range. MSM is found in all living organisms and is formed organically from carbon, hydrogen, oxygen and sulfur. Not only is it essential in the proper function of amino acids, it's a necessary nutrient used throughout the entire body. The MISMO Skin Care range was developed out of a need to find skincare that did not exacerbate a skin condition called Rosacea. Irene McDonald, founder of MISMO Body Care was diagnosed with Rosacea around the age of 40. Finding it extremely difficult to source skincare that she could use Irene began to research and create her own skin preparations. This health supplement was the first piece of the MISMO Skin care puzzle and little did Irene know then that by incorporating MSM she was already at the forefront of innovative skincare. MSM is becoming very popular for natural pain relief, particularly for arthritis. In topical products, it can also benefit your skin in many ways. Some of the benefits include: Increased Collagen Production - Collagen provides structural support to your skin. The human body produces collagen naturally, but as we age the production declines, leading to sagging wrinkled skin. MSM plays a major role in the production of collagen. Its use can help reinvigorate the collagen process and so taking it can help fight the signs of ageing. Smooth Skin - When used with quality cleansing and moisturising products, topical application of MSM can have dramatic effects on the smoothness of the skin, making it tighter with less wrinkles. Acne - Collagen is helpful in the treatment of acne and also helps repair acne damaged skin. Anti-Inflammatory - MSM can be applied to the skin to reduce redness, swelling and discolouration.
