Spring Clean Your Skin

It's Spring time, and you know what that means…. It's time for a spring clean out and I'am not just talking about your house, wardrobe or car, I am thinking more along the skincare related lines. It's time to look a little more closely at what exactly your skincare routine entails and how you can modify it to a more effective routine, better suited to this time of the year.

1. Exfoliate, exfoliate, exfoliate - Get rid of that winter dross. You can get away with exfoliating a little more often now that the weather is getting warmer. Twice a week is ok however, if you notice this is a little too stimulating for your skin, scale it back to just once a week. This is the ideal time to get on top of those dry and dead skin cells hanging around from the winter months. MISMO's Microderm Resurfacing Cream is perfect for a spring clean. The Bamboo powder allows for a deep and cleansing exfoliation, that will leave your skin feeling soft, silky and looking radiant. This product will even help to diminish fine lines and wrinkles, even out skin tone and will encourage healthy skin cell renewal. AND the good news is, it's not just for your face either. It's a great one to use all over your body, legs especially Microderm Resurfacing Cream will have your body in tip, top beach shape in no time.

2. Sunscreen (Physical Barrier Sunscreen) It tends to get forgotten during the winter months, but it is important to remember to incorporate sunscreen back into your every day routine. As we have been in hibernation for the winter months, those first few encounters with the sun can often end up with your skin burning a little more than usual, so be careful. There are a couple of options here. Using just zinc; A moisturiser with sunscreen included, which if you're time poor, saves time. (Ultra Moisturising SPF Sunscreen is great); Mineral Powder Foundation can offer great protection from the sun also due its zinc content.

3. Prevention rather than cure - Vitamin C and Hyaluronic Acid are great preventatives when it comes to wrinkles, lines and repair. Using a Vitamin C Serum sooner rather than later can help to reduce the signs of current sun damage and prevent any further sun damage. Hyaluronic Acid helps to plump skin and keep unsightly lines at bay, keeping complexions youthful. Spring is no time like the present to start introducing, if you haven't already these ingredients into your skin care regime. MISMO's A-C-E Vitamin C Serum, Rejuvenating Serum and Anti-Wrinkle Cream are three products that can help with your Vitamin C and Hyaluronic Acid fix.

4. Allergies Even though it's not technically skin care, it often goes hand in hand with Spring and affects many people, so I believe it's worth a mention. Spring tends to stir up allergies and hay fever. MSM (Organic Sulphur) can assist with allergies, offering in certain instances very quick relief for some people and sometimes even having more effect than anti-histamines, suggest some experts. It's worth considering if sneezing and running noses are causing you trouble. Or if you're already taking MSM you may want to look at increasing your dosage for a little while until your allergy triggers subside.

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.
