How MSM helps your skin health
The pain relief benefits of MSM are well documented. The concept of how MSM helps with pain in
itself is basic when you really get down to it. MSM is able to reduce inflammation in the body and subsequently when this happens pain is reduced also.
The same idea works in regards to your skin health too.
When inflammation like redness, rashes and pustules associated with Rosacea and Acne type skin conditions occur, the anti-inflammatory qualities of MSM
helps to lessen the severity and discomfort of these, eventually helping to control and reduce further outbreaks from happening.
Further to this, MSM is able to normalise damaged cells and bring them back to health, which is beneficial for not just problematic skin conditions
but all skin types.
MSM is a biologically active source of sulfur that is readily utilised by the body and it this mineral that is also responsible for our collagen and
keratin production, essential for healthy hair, skin and nails. As we grow older we do not produce as much collagen which in turn results in wrinkles,
dry and cracked skin. The sulphur provided in MSM helps to keep collagen in check which in turns results in softer, smoother and younger looking complexions.
A big plus for those looking for anti-aging benefits.
The average dose of MSM is 1 teaspoon or 4 grams depending on the size of the teaspoon mixed in water or unsweetened juice. Taken daily this will help
to not only improve your skin’s health, but as an added bonus you may also notice your energy levels and general well-being increase.
In addition to taking MSM orally applying MSM creams topically (to your body) will only enhance the benefits that MSM has to offer. Not only will MSM
help to improve skin health by protecting and repairing the skin barrier, and increasing collagen production, but the inclusion of MSM in creams also
helps other ingredients to penetrate. Taking this dual action approach to your skin’s health is a great way to get the best out of this fantastic supplement.
Incidentally, while all MiSMo moisturisers contain MSM, New Age Moisturiser contains the highest amount of MSM with over 10%! In addition to this, it also includes Hyaluronic Acid, another great anti-aging ingredient.
