Why use a Mask and Which One Should I choose?

Why Do We Need a Facial Mask?

Masks are an important addition to your skincare routine, even though we are cleansing and moisturising every day. Different masks are designed for different purposes. They can be:
  • Hydrating
  • Anti-ageing
  • Provide a temporary face lift
  • Exfoliating

Exfoliating masks give a deeper, more detoxifying effect. Incorporating a mask weekly will help significantly with the maintenance of your skin health. With so many different types of masks to choose from it is important to use a mask that suits your skin type and also suits your skins need at the time. Don't forget to include your décolleté and hands into your mask routine also. Both of these areas are also exposed to the sun and elements and can also do with some regular nurturing and repair. If you are confused working out which type of mask is best for you, then I have included a few examples of skin types below which I hope you might find helpful. Hydrating Mask and Anti Ageing PHP Treatment Mask: Hyaluronic Acid, Manuka Honey, MSM, Jojoba Oil, Colloidal oatmeal and Aloe Vera are all ingredients that are gentle on sensitive skins and also have great hydrating, calming, regenerating and healing properties. If you have dry skin and are wanting to hydrate it, then a mask including these type of ingredients would be ideal. If you have red and inflamed skin and wanted to calm it down then this type of mask could work also. In the MISMO range this would translate to the PHP Treatment Mask. Purify, Hydrate and Plump Treatment mask. This mask includes all of the ingredients above and more, to help replace moisture back into the skin, calm any redness and will speed up the healing process for any pimples or scarring. As an added bonus because of the high content of Hyaluronic Acid included in this mask, your skin will also enjoy the benefits lines being less noticeable and your skin looking feeling soft and smooth.

Exfoliating and Polishing: AHA Fruit Mask: Fruit Acids, Glycolic Acid, MSM, Aloe Vera and Hyaluronic Acid - this is quite a lineup. Suits all skin types and will leave your complexion polished and smooth, glowing with health. AHA Fruit Masque can assist considerably with Acne and Rosacea type skins for a number of reasons. Fruit Acids and Glycolic Acids will exfoliate the skin which is extremely helpful for Rosacea type skins given they tend to have thicker layers of dead skin cells that need to be regularly exfoliated. Exfoliation can also help with Acne skins as this will help with controlling congested skin and pimples. A build-up of dead skin cells mixed with sebum is a recipe for pimples. Glycolic acid and Fruit acids dissolve the bonds which hold dead skin cells on the skin while Jojoba beads help slough off the cells once the acids have done their work. As you already know Aloe Vera has beautiful calming properties as does Kaolin Clay. However, Kaolin Clay has a few other properties too including detoxifying and cleansing qualities, which for Acne and Rosacea skins is great also. For all other skin types you will just look more beautiful!! What are you waiting for? MISMO's AHA Fruit Mask would be my recommendation for Acne and Rosacea skins.

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.
