Layering your skin care is a great way to keep your skin looking its best, but there is a bit of an art to it. Think thin or lightest to thickest.

Finding a moisturiser for oily skins that works isn’t easy. Compound that together with a mature type skins that is oily and also wanting some anti-aging
benefits too and that makes it even more difficult.
Have you tried MiSMo’s Boost Oil Free Moisturiser yet? Designed especially
for oily skins this oil free moisturiser offers some fantastic skin health benefits and as an added bonus also offers anti-aging benefits too due to
the high Hyaluronic Acid content.
Here’s how Boost differs from other oil free moisturisers you may have already tried:
At MiSMo we believe the day and night cream is a bit of a myth. We firmly believe it’s simply all about the weather! If it’s hot and humid then a lighter
moisturise is in order. If it’s windy and cold (like it has turned in the last week here in Queensland) then a heavier moisturiser is in order.

developed as any easy guide to distinguish between our lightest to heaviest moisturisers.
First, let's discuss oil-based moisturisers: Dry skin needs to be ‘occluded’, which in simple terms means that your skin needs something to prevent water from evaporating from its deeper layers, and this is why we use oil in moisturisers as it is a really great sealant. But if you have oily skin or acne, you don't want a moisturiser that has a lot of heavy oils, which is why you should go with an oil-free version. Oil-free moisturisers use ingredients that work the same way oil does, they occlude the...Read More

MSM CREAMS MSM (Methylsulfonylmethane) is an Organic Sulphur which is a small molecule that easily penetrates the skin layers. Whilst MSM is predominantly known as powder/crystals which are consumed orally, there has been substantial research and evidence to show that MSM Creams produce fantastic anti-ageing results and healthier, more radiant looking skin. MSM makes skin cells more permeable for vitamins and nutrients to be absorbed into the cells and for toxins to leave the cells. This process produces healthier skin cells, which continue to replicate other healthy cells, improving the cellular structure and visible condition of the skin. MSM is also beneficial in...Read More
