What Is MSM?
While natural ingredients that sound simple are considered good for your skin, there are some components that might sound a bit typical but are equally important for your skin! One of such ingredients is MSM or Methyl Sulphonyl Methane which is a natural form of sulphur and is found in all living organisms. It also helps in strengthening the nails, hair and joints. Sulphur also has the ability to deal with chronic skin conditions like arthritis, psoriasis, etc. This isn't a skincare trend though, it is a classic ingredient which is being used for over 30 years now in the beauty and cosmetic industry. It is also known as the 'beauty mineral' and the 'healing mineral' as it has medicinal properties as well!
Why is MSM a powerhouse ingredient?
Our skin is held together due to the production of a vital protein called collagen. It is responsible for the firmness and tightening of our skin but the production of collagen starts declining after the age of 35. To keep your skin healthy after that, MSM is one of the best ingredients to add into your skincare regimen. MSM is beneficial for your skin in numerous ways - from boosting collagen to increasing the permeability of your skin. Listed below are few ways in which MSM can be a miraculous ingredient for you to add into your skincare regimen!
- Promotes the growth of body's natural antioxidant which boosts the immune system, reducing cellular damage and pigmentation.
- Has great anti-inflammatory properties which soothes the skin and makes it supple.
- Protects collagen.
- It is widely known to reduce the signs of ageing such as fine lines, wrinkles and hyper-pigmentation.
