Mineral Makeup has to be the best change to cosmetics in the last 50 years. The Benefits go on and on:
BENEFITS OF MINERAL MAKEUP POWDER

Mineral Makeup is perfect for all skin types including dry and oily, and is very economical. It is a foundation, powder and concealer all in one.
For those with redness or pigmentation which needs to be concealed the problem is over with a sweep of the brush. No more messy concealers or green tinted creams which make you look like a clown.
MINERAL MAKEUP AND ROSACEA OR REDNESS
Even during an outbreak of Rosacea or pimples disguising the redness and angry surface will make you feel 100% better about your appearance. This in itself will help shorten the outbreak as stress extends these conditions.
Needless to say I’m hooked on minerals. For a long while I avoided loose minerals thinking they were too messy until one day a makeup artist suggested placing a tissue on the bench before starting the makeup routine. Problem solved in one small step.
Other advantages having the tissue on the bench include somewhere to wipe brushes after use for eyeshadow or eyeliner.
I tried really hard to use the mineral makeup in compacts for ease of use but it did not stay on my face for more than a few hours. Compact Mineral Makeup also contains dimethicone, necessary to hold the powder together but it is not a natural ingredient.
Mineral Makeup colours are very forgiving, meaning one colour can suit many skin colour tones. For people who develop some tan during summer and that is most countries, 2 makeup colours should be on hand. One for the cool seasons when you are more pale and one to use during summer. The beauty of loose minerals is colours can easily be mixed to get just the perfect colour.
MiSMo sells sample pots of mineral makeup so you can try the colour before purchasing or mix 2 colours to achieve that perfect shade.
Mineral eyeshadows give huge choices in colour tone. Use dry and colours can be soft through to strong. Use wet to achieve a “foiling” effect. The colours are dramatic and adhere very well.
Ingredients to avoid are talc and bismuth oxychloride. Bismuth can make your skin very itchy and worse still if you are prone to breakouts get ready for a big one.
Blush works well on darker skin shades from olive through to very dark. It lifts skin tone. Lighter skins can use either blush, bronzer or both.
MINERAL MAKEUP APPLICATION
Applying a moisturiser is essential before using Mineral makeup. Oil is the magic that gives long adhesion and a natural silky look. Mineral makeup can be applied directly after using an oil and that includes MiSMo A-C-E Vitamin C serum, perfect for dry skin types. The look is very much like a liquid in this case.
For those with very oily skin an oil free moisturiser is fine as your natural oils with come through within minutes and bind minerals to skin.
Makeup is fun and age doesn’t need to change that. Observe friends who don’t wear makeup. They rarely look as attractive or “finished” in appearance. It takes only a few moments to apply mineral makeup foundation and a minute to add blush and eyeshadow.

MAGNESIUM CHLORIDE FOR RELAXATION
Magnesium offers many health benefits for a range of health conditions including muscle pain, help with sleeplessness, headaches and cramps. However, in addition to these well known qualities, another major benefit this wonderful mineral has to offer is relaxation.
Not only does Magnesium possess powerful relaxation properties for relieving any muscle tension in your body but it can also significantly benefit the nervous system too, helping you to relax. In fact, researches have been known to refer to Magnesium as, “the anti-stress mineral.”
Responsible for over 325 different biochemical processes in the body, it is safe to say that Magnesium plays an integral role to our health and well-being and is worth considering if you are feeling in a constant state of stress.
There are many ways you can incorporate Magnesium into your life and these include taking it orally or using it transdermally (on your body). MiSMo encourages a transdermal approach because Magnesium Chloride is absorbed by the body very easily, bypassing the digestive system, so side effects like diarrhea that are often associated with many of the oral forms are avoided.
There are many different forms of Magnesium so when looking for a magnesium to apply topically always use Magnesium Chloride. Also check the purity of the Magnesium as this does vary.
WAYS TO DE-STRESS WITH MAGNESIUM CHLORIDE
If you’re looking for ways to use Magnesium Chloride to help de-stress, try one of the options below;
• A Magnesium bath. Just add 1/4 cup of Magnesium Chloride Powder to a warm bath and enjoy the calming benefits this wonderful mineral has to offer. As an added bonus you will also find you’ll sleep very soundly.
• Foot soak. Simply add 1/4 cup of Magnesium Chloride Powder to warm water in a foot spa or bucket of water and soak your feet for 20-25mins. This will allow the Magnesium to absorb into your body.
• Make your own Magnesium Oil. Mix 50 grams of Magnesium Powder to 50mls warm drinkable distilled water and add to a spray bottle for ease of use. Spray on your body (legs, feet, arms, tummy and back) Inner thighs, inner arms and under arms are great locations for absorption too. Keep in mind this will be a very strong 50% mix and most magnesium oils on the market contain around 30% magnesium chloride so you can experiment with this mix.
1g of Magnesium Chloride Powder contains 120mg of elemental magnesium. There are 1,000mg in 1g. The daily recommended dosage of elemental magnesium is approximately 400mg but magnesium deficient people need more.
Magnesium Chloride used topically (applying to the skin) is also super effective because it penetrates the skin very quickly, within minutes. This is why you will gain relief from pain fast.
Been out gardening, a weekend warrior, gym workout or a long bike ride – a Magnesium Chloride powder bath and Magnesium Gel Forte will melt away your aches and pains – Super Fast!

While long hot showers may feel luxurious they do take a toll on the skin, washing away precious natural oils on the skin’s surface (in particular the outer layer known as the Stratum Corneum), which in turn leads to dry, itchy and reddened skin.
But it’s not all bad news for showers, you can still enjoy a relaxing shower, it just needs to be a little bit shorter and not so hot. Believe me, your skin will love and thank you for it.
According to some research, there are quite a few benefits to having a cold shower. Not only is it better for your skin, but it’s a great booster for your immune and circulatory system and can help to reduce stress levels too.
Some few simple tips on the best way to shower to protect your skin’s health:
- Shorter, warm showers (lukewarm is best) are much more skin friendly. (The plus side to this is your water and electricity bills might not be as much!)
- Never let the shower run directly on your face. This can contribute to broken capillaries. Splash the water on your face from your cupped hands or use a clean soft cloth. Microfibre cloths are ideal in this instance.
- Pat the skin dry instead of rubbing it. And that rule of thumb can apply not only to your face but your body also.
Mismo Body Care has used science with a little help from nature to create its ACE serum. They have done this using synergy in the form of vitamins A, C & E. When put together as a combination these anti-oxidants really are the bench mark when it comes to fighting the signs of aging.
BEST VITAMIN COMBINATIONS FOR VITAMIN C SERUM
Vitamin A – Known as the skin vitamin, Mismo when doing its research decided on Retinyl Palmitate because it is a safe form of vitamin A and works on the cellular turn over. In younger skin the cell turnover is much quicker, as we age it slows down and shows up in the form of skin thickness, vitamin A’s job is to quicken it up, to thin the skin out again for that youthful look.
Vitamin C – This vitamin is an anti-oxidant so its job is to repair and encourage new even cell growth, it’s also a melanin inhibitor, over production of melanin shows up in the form of brown patches and freckles, vitamin C encourages a more refined and even skin look, it reduces the appearance of pigmentation and smooths the feel of the skin.
Vitamin E – The topical benefits of vitamin E are that it offers protection to the fat layer in the cell structure, this results in keeping moisturise in the skin. If you take the moisture away from the skin, the skin becomes dry and wrinkled.
VITAMIN C SERUM FOR ANTI AGEING BENEFITS
Mismo believes vitamin C is a necessity when it comes to anti-ageing so they incorporate it into two of their anti-ageing products, ACE Serum and their Anti-Wrinkle cream. These two products are two components of their Anti-Ageing trio.
Vitamin C is an important nutrient which is a vital component in the body’s production of collagen, these building blocks keep the skin plump and young looking, it is also a potent antioxidant that can help rejuvenate aged skin and skin that has become photo-damaged due to over exposure of ultra violet rays. Over time this exposure causes deep set wrinkles, fine lines, brown marks due to the over production of melanin and loss of collagen and elastin. Think collagen as the frame that holds up the elastin – the bounce in our skin.
Mismo uses an oil form of vitamin C called ascorbyl tetraisopalmitate, compared to vitamin C that is in a “water soluble” such as the ascorbic acid found in tablet and powder form. Water soluble vitamin C is very volatile and oxidises causing the vitamin C to change from an antioxidant which is great for the skin into a free radical toxin. Using an oil form of vitamin C ensures that the vitamin C can do its job for 12 – 18 months without oxidising.
Mismo also uses vitamin C in its Anti-Wrinkle cream, this cream contains the perfect synergy of A, C and E and has been coupled with hyaluronic acid another very important ingredient in skin care. Hyaluronic acid acts to plump up the skin from underneath acting like a cushion, helping to eliminate fine lines and even out deeper ones and also helps in preventing them in the first place. Hyaluronic acid has been promoted as a “fountain of youth” product.
So what do you get when you apply vitamin C to the skin? Younger looking skin that is for sure. ACE Vitamin C serum is a must use if you suffer from Rosacea or mature skin.
What Is MSM?
MSM or its full name, Methyl Sulfonyl Methane is a crystalline supplement, a source of Organic Sulphur. MSM is a pain relief and general wellness supplement which is easily absorbed by the body. MSM is neither a drug nor a medicine, but a naturally occurring nutrient that provides the body with essential sulfur and methyl groups that are used in the healing and repair processes.
How Does MSM Help Sports Injuries?
According to the foremost expert on MSM, Stanley W. Jacob, M.D., the substance, when taken as a supplement, exerts potent anti-inflammatory activity, stops pain impulses and muscle spasm, and improves blood supply. MSM strengthens the collagen and the other connective tissue in the joints, it also allows the body to heal faster by making the tissues even stronger.
The body’s natural response to an injury is to become swollen and inflamed, the anti-inflammatory aspects of MSM helps diminish this pain and makes the joints feel less inflamed.
MSM has many benefits for sporting injuries:
-Inhibits pain impulses along nerve fibers and thus has an analgesic effect.
-Reduces inflammation and muscle spasm, both of which contribute to lessened pain and soreness.
-Increases blood supply.
-Softens scar tissue.
How Do I Take MSM?
MSM looks like sugar and is water soluble so can be taken dissolved in water or fruit juice. Up to 80g daily, by mouth, under the care of a GP. From research by Dr Jacob and others however, it appears that 2g to 8g daily is sufficient in normal situations (Such as an immune system booster) reduce or increase as required–taken with vitamin C can improve the effect. The world’s top MSM authority Dr. Jacob has taken 30grams MSM daily for the past 20yrs – no side effects, colds or flu!!
Avoid MSM tablets, capsules and pills as the majority contain inexpensive and undesirable bulk fillers
Actual Results From Real People!
Hi I recently purchased your MSM Sulfur and I am amazed at the results I’m getting. This is truly a miracle product. I have suffered from back pain for 10 years and after two weeks on MSM I began feeling like I did when I was 15 years old. No pain, lots of energy and very alert.
In the mornings I’m usually at my worst and with strong back pain and fatigue that compounds from the prior days back pain, I drag myself out of bed and spend the next three hours trying to warm up and wake up. The dull ache stays with me all day.
Now I’m getting up feeling no back pain, I spring out of bed, I’m alert, no more fatigue or grumpy behaviour for the first three hours of the day, I can actually function from the beginning to the end of my day. I feel great.
It’s been 6 weeks now and I still can’t believe how much it has relieved my back pain not to mention the other benefits. Thank you for such a great product.
Jamie R, Perth WA
Hi, I started taking MSM powder a few months ago to try and help with joint pains I’ve had since I was in my teens (a skiing accident) and twenties (a chiropractic manipulation gone wrong). I’m in my thirties now and pain free for the first time in over fifteen years. I’m thrilled with the difference MSM has made for me. – I’ve no joint pain and it’s the middle of winter! (I also take fish oils and have done so for years but they have only ever provided intermittent relief). Thank you so much.
Winter is already showing itself in many parts of Australia so now is the time to prepare your skin. Here are a few tips to avoid that awful dry, stingy
feeling that cold weather brings:
Drink plenty of water to keep hydrated. Often we don’t remember water in winter as thirst is not as strong in
cold weather as on those hot summer days but your body still needs water, if not as much. If you are a coffee or alcohol drinker, your need for
increasing water intake is higher at any time of year. Both beverages dehydrate the body so for every glass or cup of coffee or alcohol add 1 glass
SET UP A BARRIER:
Your face will need some extra TLC (tender loving care) for the next few months so prepare your bathroom cupboard. Extra oil on your skin will be very
important. The answer there is easy – ACE Vitamin C Serum. This light but super nourishing serum will literally feed your complexion. While we recommend evening use in warmer weather, morning and evening will be more effective in winter.
Your skin needs a barrier to protect it not only from the elements but from heating/air conditioning which is so drying on the complexion. Going from
a warm office, home or car then outside is giving you face a shock every time hence the need for a barrier. Your body is protected with clothing
but not your face and hands – aah don’t forget your hands. ACE LOVES hands. Youthful hands show off rings so well. Lips soften applying ACE twice
a day too.
While Sacha was in Japan in February skiing, her friends all ended up with their faces so dry they were cracking. ACE serum and Nourishing Cream were
saviours for Sacha who did not have any problem with her face. Of course Sacha’s supplies dwindled substantially! Anti Wrinkle Cream is a great
team mate of ACE Serum which contains Vitamins A, C and E as well as hyaluronic acid. I love to use Nourishing Cream on my arms and the value is excellent, especially the large 250ml size.
Exfoliation is a must during winter. As the skin tends to dry, more dead skin cells will form and need to be removed. Think
about your legs and that lovely flaky look you often discover toward the end of winter – and legs are usually covered. This is happening to your
delicate face and neck so once or twice a week depending on your skin type exfoliate with Microderm Resurfacing cream. Your face will then drink
in those beautiful oils and active ingredients you apply afterwards.
MOISTURISE LEGS AND ARMS:
Much winter clothing has a component of polyester which tends to dry the skin so you may find your legs
and arms are looking dry and scaly. We tend not to think about exfoliating these parts of the body but you will see the benefit for the short time
it takes in the shower. Remember to apply a quality natural body lotion to keep skin soft and supple after. Unfortunately MiSMo does not have a
body lotion as such, but I apply Magnesium Gel and get a double bonus.

NOURISHING CREAM WITH MSM FOR THE SOFTEST SKIN
There’s nothing quite like the feeling of applying a moisturiser that absorbs beautifully into your skin, feels like silk and leaves just a light hint of a fresh aroma to help start your day off on the right foot. That’s exactly what Nourishing Cream with MSM feels like when I use it every morning. Not only does this cream feel amazing but it offers so many wonderful benefits for my skin.
Nourishing Cream contains a very large amount of ingredients high in essential fatty acids. Ingredients like Macadamia and Jojoba Oil. These are the ones that help with repairing the skin barrier, keeping skin smooth and elastic while also ensuring moisture levels are kept in check.
In addition to this, Nourishing Cream also contains MSM, a source of organic Sulphur, Aloe Vera, Shea and Coconut butter. All of these ingredients combine to offer a power pack of benefits like softened skin, cell renewal properties, anti-aging and healing benefits. What more could you ask for in a moisturiser?
Nourishing Cream makes for the perfect day cream for mature type skins and is also ideal for Rosacea sufferers. It’s great as a base under any makeup
especially MiSMo’s mineral makeup.
If you’re wondering if Nourishing Cream is the right choice for you out of all of the moisturisers in the MiSMo range, then ask yourself these questions:
- Are you wanting to increase the moisture levels in your skin?
- Do you have Rosacea, sensitive or dry skin?
- Would you like to calm any redness in your skin?
- Are you wanting to reduce fine lines and wrinkles?
- Are you looking for a natural moisturiser?
If you answer “Yes” to these then it is definitely worth trying Nourishing Cream.
Another consideration to give some thought to is now the temperatures are finally cooling off and Winter is fast approaching it might be time to look at the moisturisers you are currently using and opt for a more hydrating alternative.
Nourishing Cream can most definitely help with this. Even the addition of a treatment serum into your skincare routine to help give your skin that extra moisture boost (along with a number of other fantastic anti-aging benefits too) is also a great option.
Interesting Nourishing Cream Facts

MSM is a source of organic Sulphur. Sulphur is a mineral needed for many important functions in our bodies and offers a myriad of health benefits for so many different conditions including arthritis, allergies, carpal tunnel, snoring, just to list only a few.
In addition to this, MSM has a great deal to offer your skin also as well as certain skin conditions like Rosacea and Acne. MSM possess strong anti-inflammatory benefits which works to help calm any redness and reduce any inflamed skin. It also has the ability to help with the reproduction of healthier cells and restore any fragile cells back to strong, healthy ones. Which means positive outcomes for Rosacea and Acne sufferers.
In terms of what exactly MSM can do when used in creams, it can soften the texture of skin and what’s more exfoliation is also promoted which leads to better clarity of the complexion, which makes MSM a pretty great anti-aging tool.
All MiSMo moisturisers include MSM as one of the ingredients with New Age Moisturiser including the highest amount – over 10%. Which makes this moisturiser an ideal choice for those who suffer from skin conditions like Rosacea or Acne. The skin health benefits are fantastic when New Age Moisturiser is used. As an added bonus it also includes the ingredient Hyaluronic Acid, which means you will also receive some lovely anti-aging benefits too!
MiSMo received this lovely testimonial from Rochelle (an Acne sufferer) about how New Age Moisturiser worked for her-
I’ve suffered acne and oily skin for many years so have always tended to tread cautiously around moisturisers. My skin has improved significantly since switching to Mismo products (no more acne!) and I am so thankful I decided to now give the New Age Moisturiser a try – the new formulation is better than ever before and I am blown away at how it has changed my complexion. My skin is now soft and dewy and looks like it glows from within. My skin tone has evened out and best of all, the oilyness is gone!
Another product that contains a high amount of MSM is Cell Soother. Cell Soother is essentially an MSM Gel and has many and varied applications. It is a product that will also help to promote a light exfoliation and can be used to improve skin health, relieve sunburn and mozzie bites, soothe after waxing, reduce and eliminate cold sores and help to fortify pain relief in conjunction with Magnesium Gel Forte which also includes MSM.
To maximise the benefits of MSM, you can always consider using products that include MSM and also take MSM orally as a supplement. It’s a great way to give your skincare a boost from the inside too.
Don’t wait to start using MSM products your skin will thank you.
Three words, MSM Hair Treatment!
MSM is a source of organic Sulphur that can help to relieve many different health conditions (arthritis, allergies, Carpel tunnel are just some of these) and is also great to take daily to improve general well-being and increase energy.
It turns out among many of the fantastic benefits MSM has to offer helping repair and support hair is one of these.
To get a little technical MSM is needed for the synthesis of Collagen and is prevalent in Keratin, a tough protein substance needed for the health and maintenance of hair. In a nutshell, hair is made up of keratin, which is produced in the follicles in the outer layer of skin. As follicles produce new hair cells, old cells are being pushed out through the surface of the skin.
There has been research to show that MSM has helped with hair growth together with great results found when used on hair that has become dry and brittle from too many chemical hair treatments.
To receive the benefits MSM has to offer your hair there are two options. Take a daily dose internally (an average dose is one teaspoon) in a glass of water (warm water will help to dissolve the crystals quicker) which is what the research suggests for hair growth. Alternatively, in terms of chemically treated hair you can make a leave in hair treatment. You could essentially do both and receive benefits internally and topically also.
To make your own leave-in hair treatment simply mix 4 teaspoons of MSM into 250ml pure distilled water in a spray bottle and spritz onto the affected area daily. Hair should feel softer and stronger quickly.
MiSMo MSM is available in 440g and 850g quantities in both MSM Powder (Crystalised) and Distilled MSM. You can use this to make your own hair treatment and also take a daily dose yourself. As mentioned above MSM has many health benefits for a range of health conditions so it is a great supplement to start including into your routine if not just for the fantastic general health and well-being properties.
Some further information regarding MSM you may be interested in – Hot sulphur springs have been used for therapeutic purposes for centuries. The odour comes from the sulphur. Sulphur has been known as the beauty mineral of the body and it is the fourth most abundant mineral in the body. MSM has provedto be a great skin softener which helps prevent cross-linking of skin, a cause of wrinkles, lines and scarring.
When you talk about Hyaluronic Acid to someone not familiar with this ingredient the acid part conjures up all different types of thoughts and none that relate to beautiful skin!
BUT, it’s not an ingredient to be afraid of at all, in fact, Hyaluronic acid is naturally present in our bodies. It is a carbohydrate that binds to water giving it a stiff viscous quality similar to jelly. This gel is one of the most heavily researched substances who’s function in the body amongst other things is to help lubricate movable parts of the body, such as joints and muscles.
Its consistency and tissue-friendliness allows it to be used in skincare products as an excellent moisturiser. Interestingly, there is roughly 50% of Hyaluronic Acid found in our skin and is something we require in order to maintain our skin’s layers and structure. Hyaluronic Acid works with collagen to produce some pretty wonderful anti-aging skin benefits.
- Improved skin tone
- Keeps our complexions youthful = wrinkle-free
I am thinking right now you might just be wanting to know how you can get your hands on a serum that contains this ingredient and fast!
It just so happens a Hyaluronic Acid serum in MiSMo terms translates to Rejuvenating Gel. Moreover, MiSMo uses only pharmaceutical grade Hyaluronic Acid (which is also plant-derived) and lots of it too. In fact, up to twenty times more than other products, which is why Rejuvenating Gel is so effective. In as little as four days of using this serum, you will see visible results which include plumping and improvement to skin texture.
In addition to Hyaluronic Acid, MiSMo has also added another powerful anti-aging ingredient to the formulation, a peptide known as Matrixyl Synthe 6. This also helps to keep skin wrinkle free while also encouraging the production of collagen and elastin.
Here’s what Nicole had to say about Rejuvenating Gel:-
“Wow! I was given a bottle of Mismo’s Rejuvenating Gel for Xmas and have only been using it for two weeks – but what a difference. At 40 the lines around my eyes are beginning to show. This Gel is wonderful and in only a short time I am starting to see lines reduce. Highly recommend giving these products a go…thank you Mismo!!”
Because our Hyaluronic Acid supplies decline as we get older, a Hyaluronic Acid serum is just what you need to help top up and keep wrinkles and sagging skin at bay. What are you waiting for? Purchase your very own Rejuvenating Gel HERE now.

Interesting Hyaluronic Acid Fact – Hyaluronic Acid is highly concentrated inside the eyeball. The fluid inside the eye called the vitreous humor is composed almost completely of hyaluronic acid. The gel acts as a shock absorber for the eye and also serves to transport nutrients into the eye. It is said that after the 5th decade of life, our eyes stop producing the much needed Hyaluronic Acid resulting in various eye problems such as poor vision, dry eyes and floaters.
