Serums and their Anti Aging Benefits

Looking after your skin can be a complex affair. To give your skin the best possible outcome, treatment goes beyond the usual cleanse, tone and moisturise regime of the past.

There is a huge range of skin care products on the market today and we will try to help explain the best way to choose your star items.

Serums offer all sorts of tempting improvements for skin care, from smoothing wrinkles to reducing pigmentation marks. An important point to remember is that serums are not moisturisers. Serums usually contain concentrated, active ingredients designed to perform specific tasks. Small molecules are selected to ensure deeper penetration and absorption.

A good serum is an excellent addition to your skin care routine, especially if you have a particular area of concern. Serums are generally used after cleansing and need to be sealed by a moisturiser. They are another layer of skin care well worth the effort and a little extra expense.

The many benefits of serums are they can deposit nutrients, vitamins and minerals deeper in the skin so problems such as dull, lined, uneven skin tone and dryness in the complexion can be addressed. More intense treatments can be given very easily.

Ingredients or features to look for in serums include Hyaluronic Acid, Vitamins A, C and E and Peptides.

Hyaluronic Acid is top of the list and is known as the King of hydrators. Skin is very commonly dehydrated especially as we start to age. As collagen and elastin deposits reduce, lines form. This is where Hyaluronic Acid comes to the fore, plumping skin, adding moisture lost from environmental damage and ageing. HA is the missing link of elastin and collagen. Now you can provide that ingredient topically.

Vitamin C and Vitamin E are antioxidants critical to use for protection from free radicals during the day. Vitamin C can help reduce pigmentation and prevent further development. Vitamin C also helps strengthen capillaries and even skin tone.

Vitamin C is best used in an oil form because it is very stable and non irritating. Many soluble forms of Vitamin C oxidise quickly and lose their efficacy. They can also be irritating on some skins.

Retinol and Vitamin A stimulate natural cell renewal and thickening of the epidermis.

When purchasing a Vitamin C serum the best formulations contain Vitamins A, C and E in an oil form. Your skin then receives maximum protection and sun damage can be improved. Uneven colour tone and light pigmentation will also improve.

Peptides are a new generation in anti aging actives. They are synthesised from Amino Acids and are readily accepted by the skin. Several peptides have been developed to carry out different jobs but Matrixyll„¢ Synthe 6 ®, a signal peptide seems to have the best results. These tiny peptides signal the skin to stimulate the growth of collagen and elastin, hence smoother skin.

Hyaluronic Acid and Matrixyl„¢ Synthe 6 ® work well together and give excellent results quickly. It is not just the combination of ingredients but percentages and molecule size that is vital in formulating serums.

For best results look for all the ingredients listed above and a more youthful appearance can be expected.

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.

      Best stuff ever. MSM makes a big difference to my day. Helps with my inflammation and pain. I'm hoping that the longer I keep taking it the better things will get. Thank you Mismo for MSM. I use to give this to my son when he was younger and he was suffering with Acne the difference that MSM made was huge, complete healing.
