04 Jan MSM: “Nature’s Beauty Mineral” For Firm Skin
MSM is considered to be nature’s beauty mineral for firm skin due to its ability to enhance collagen bundles and restore the foundation for healthy skin. MSM is well known as a building block for collagen and connective tissues; it can normalize collagen formation and radically improve skin health. We need MSM in our Skincare Toolbox because it is a powerful team player in the anti-aging skin care game.
The FDA has said this about MSM:
- It supports the structural integrity of skin.
- It is a component of collagen & keratin for healthy skin, hair and nails.
- It supports glutathione production, the primary antioxidant enzyme that neutralizes damaging free radicals.
“For this reason, it is one of the best ingredients to look for if you have mature skin that has lost a lot of its elasticity”.
MSM has a softening, deeply humectant effect on the skin. It has the unique ability to penetrate several skin layers and therefore provides a superior hydrating and smoothing effect for longer periods of time. MSM helps make the skin cells more permeable. If it is an ingredient in your facial moisturizer, it can help the other ingredients gain entry to the skin cells in order to hydrate them more effectively. MSM works together with Vitamin C to build new, healthy tissues, thus a more glowing and youthful complexion.
Here at Toolbox 101 we have been examining the ingredients that make NCN such an outstanding line of anti-aging skincare products. All of them are stellar in their own right, but together form a heavenly constellation of skincare perfection. Here are the NCN products that contain MSM:
