Summer Skincare Switch

With Summer fast approaching, it's time to check in with the skincare products you are currently using to see if they need a little switch up. Perhaps you might need to swap your Anti Wrinkle Cream for something a little lighter like New Age Moisturiser or better still if you haven't been using a moisturiser with a sunscreen then now is the time to start using one. Ultra Moisturising SPF Sunscreen includes a natural sun protection ingredient, Zinc. Zinc is able to protect your skin from both UVA and UVB rays (UVA rays penetrate deep into the dermis, the skin's thickest layer. UVB rays will usually burn the superficial layers of your skin.) This light cream will provide 93% protection from the suns rays. Not only will a moisturiser that includes a natural sun protection ingredient protect your skin from the sun's harmful rays and possible skin cancers but given the sun is also the number one enemy when it comes to premature ageing it will also help to prevent any further fine lines and wrinkles from developing. Being mindful of this and staying out of the sun during the hottest times of the day, 10am 2pm will also help with keeping your skin both healthy and youthful. Remember prevention is always best!
In addition to refining your skincare routine to suit a warmer and humid Summer season, it is also worth checking your foundation too. During the winter months we tend to use a shade lighter given we are not as sun-kissed. So perhaps it might be time to start wearing one shade darker once your skin begins to see a little more sun.

 

The The beauty of using a mineral foundation is that this too contains natural sun protection ingredients like Zinc Oxides. Mineral powder foundation can offer very high SPF and the more you apply the higher sun protection you will enjoy. Mineral powder foundation will provide a physical barrier against the sun's harmful rays. Using a moisturiser with SPF together with a mineral foundation is a great way to fortify your skin's sun protection and lucky for you MISMO has just the products to help with this!

Ultra Moisturising SPF Sunscreen is the perfect natural moisturiser and offers around 15 Sun Protection Factor thanks to the inclusion of Zinc. (Interestingly, in addition to Zinc's very handy sun protection qualities, it also possesses wonderful healing and calming properties too, which makes this moisturiser ideal for Rosacea sufferers. And don't be deterred by the word sunscreen as this moisturiser is perfectly fine to use of an evening too!) MISMO also stocks a great selection of natural mineral powder foundations, which will also protect your skin from the sun while also offering beautiful, flawless and long lasting coverage. So not only will you be looking after your skin's health, but you'll look wonderful while you do it!

THE BEAUTY & HEALING 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 a natural form of organic sulphur compound that is 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 peak flexibility and mobility, as well as for strong hair and nails, beautiful skin, and numerous other health conditions from leaky gut syndrome and ME to damaged joints, arthritis, osteoporosis, and psoriasis. MISMO is the first premium skincare range to harness MSM’s highly beneficial properties.

Why is it called Organic Sulphur?

Sulphur is the fourth most plentiful mineral in the human body and is known both as the ‘beauty mineral’ and the ‘healing mineral’ for its ability to support collagen production, promote circulation and decrease inflammation. Although not widely known, sulphur preparations have been used since the time of Hippocrates - the father of modern medicine - to beautify the skin and treat a variety of skin conditions.

Sulphur is structurally and functionally important to 150 bodily compounds and performs a number of important functions within the body. It is integral to the production of collagen and elastin. Approximately half of the body's sulphur content is found in the skin, muscles, cartilage, and bones.

How does MSM work at the cellular level?

Collagen is the principal structural protein holding the skin together, with the fibrils of types I and III forming the mesh which is largely responsible for the skin’s mechanical properties. Since the production of collagen types, I and III in the skin tends to decline from about the age of 35 onwards.

How can MSM help improve skin condition?

  • Protecting collagen against collagen degrading enzymes.
  • Clinically proven to reduce fine lines & wrinkles by boosting collagen and elastin production. 
  • Boosts the natural production of Glutathione, the body's key cellular anti-oxidant, to boost the immune system and reduce pigmentation and cellular damage. 
  • Acting as an anti-inflammatory agent by reducing the production of cytokines (pro-inflammation).
  • Providing the body with the raw materials needed to create new cells, and to repair damaged ones.
  • Maintaining skin cell membrane flexibility and permeability, promoting an efficient exchange of nutrients and waste products, to help keep skin clear.
  • MSM also helps in maintaining the body's crucial pH balance.
  • MSM is needed to detoxify the body. Amino acid chains are usually linked with each other through flexible sulphur bridges.

How can MSM help with joint support? 

As we age, joint pain becomes more and more frequent. MSM allows for a quicker recovery by reducing inflammatory responses and swelling that arise from joint pain and fatigue. Physical and active movements are important to our overall health, however, joints and cartilage deteriorate after time.

The ageing of joints has been shown to slow down as MSM supports active lifestyles and improves the quality of life. Taking organic sulphur is critical in maintaining healthy joints and cartilage, as MSM assimilates into the body to support optimal nutrition.

Arthritis is a common inflammatory condition that causes pain, stiffness and a reduced range of motion in your joints. Since MSM has powerful anti-inflammatory properties, it’s often used as a natural alternative to medications to improve arthritis-related symptoms.

How can MSM help with healthy ageing? 

Organic sulphur continues to gain more support as a critical dietary nutrient to assist with healthy aging. With its regulation of glutathione and other mechanisms in the body, MSM can help support healthy skin, joint mobility, cartilage, and the inflammatory response. A breakdown of joint health and mobility often comes from ageing. Organic sulphur is a critical nutrient helping to protect joints, tendons, and connective tissue.



How does MSM help with exercise recovery?

MSM powder is an important nutritional supplement for anyone living an active lifestyle, as it delivers optimal amounts of 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 structure and can reduce the inflammation of muscle tissue and joints, In this way, MSM helps new muscle development supports athletic recovery, and can help offset muscle soreness, joint pain and inflammation. MSM can also help reduce the build-up of lactic acid in muscle tissue and can speed the elimination of toxins from the liver. MSM is very useful for recovering more quickly between training sessions and it's a great supplement for joint pain.

Sulphur is a basic organic component of protein, and important to building new muscle tissue and protecting existing lean mass. Our muscles, skin, bones, organs, and connective tissue all rely on sulphur and without it, our bodies can not function properly. Sulphur is crucial for the uptake, absorption and generation of vitamins and minerals, enzymes and antibodies, and even our wellbeing and mood molecules endocrine system.

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 

MSM Benefits

Muscle function, building muscle, protection lean tissue, sports performance, training recovery.

MSM is a key source of sulphur, a compound which the body relies on for almost every function including the production of muscle tissue, healthy connective tissue, uptake of vitamins and minerals, healthy wellbeing, and mood molecule function. MSM is found in food but is difficult to retain since it is lost through food production, storage, and any loss of moisture. Taking MSM powder or capsules ensures a constant supply of optimal levels of this very important supplement.

Where is MSM found?

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.

MSM originates in the oceans where microscopic plankton releases sulphur compounds into seawater, which is quickly converted to DMS, a volatile sulphur compound that escapes into the atmosphere. In this suspended, gaseous state, the DMS reacts with ozone and ultraviolet sunlight to create MSM. MSM then falls to the earth with the rain, where it is collected and concentrated in plants. 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. Testing processes include:

  • High resolution gas chromatography (“HRGC”) – establishes the volatile purity of organic sulfur (“volatile” impurities referring to those impurities that evaporate easily).
  • Melting point – helps to reveal non-volatile purities which cannot be determined by HRGC. This testing is important in conjunction with the HRGC testing to determine that the organic sulfur you are consuming is also pure from non-volatility impurities (“non-volatile” referring to a substance that does not readily evaporate into gas under existing conditions).
  • Karl Fischer Titration Method (“KFT”) – Pure organic sulfur should be extremely dry, with a water content of less than 0.1%.
  • Metals Testing - heavy metals; Arsenic, Cadmium, Mercury, and Lead, as well as the metal Aluminum. Additionally, as water is an integral part of the production process, guidelines regarding water supply are very important. Thus, it is worth noting that foreign MSM production facilities may be located in areas where local water supplies do not meet the more stringent U.S. Federal guidelines for organic and inorganic volatiles, heavy metals, and other contaminants, making heavy metal testing essential (We note that our product is made in the U.S).
  • Microbiological Testing - for aerobic bacteria, total coliforms, and yeast and molds. Again, this testing can be affected by water contamination. Poor water quality can lead to coliform and bacterial contamination. Too much moisture in the product can lead to yeast and mold contamination.

MISMO MSM usage

An average dose is between 2-8 grams daily. Most people take a teaspoon (approximately 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.

BLOOD TESTS: MSM can interfere with the accuracy of the 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.
