MSM powder - the 4in1 beauty all-rounder

What is MSM powder?

The abbreviation MSM stands for methylsulfonylmethane, also known as dimethylsulfone - quite a tongue twister, isn't it? 😅

MSM is a purely natural sulfur compound that also occurs in this form in our body. The body's own sulfur content is around 0.2 percent.

But what does sulfur actually do in our body?

With regard to the activity of the entire hormonal balance, sulfur plays a decisive role. In addition, the mineral is elementary in the production of enzymes and essential amino acids. In addition, sulfur is also involved in the formation of collagen and is a valuable "supporter" of the immune system. Last but not least, sulfur also influences the structure of proteins and enzymes in the human body.

So you see, sulfur is essential in the human body.

However, a sulfur deficiency can occur as a result of physical stress, sport, malnutrition and/or illness. In addition to health symptoms such as exhaustion and a weakened immune system, this can also lead to "beauty problems" such as brittle nails, dull, lackluster hair and weakened connective tissue.

In addition, the powder is said to have an anti-inflammatory effect, which is why it is also recommended for those suffering from chronic inflammation, such as arthritis.

How is the MSM powder used?

As a 4in1 beauty all-rounder, the MSM powder can be used in many ways, both externally and internally.

You can use it for a wide range of areas, such as health, beauty and well-being. It is easy to use, very effective, completely natural and vegan, i.e. a real superfood.

dietary supplements

To compensate for a sulfur deficiency, you can take MSM as a dietary supplement, among other things. Since it has a slightly bitter taste, it is best to cover it up with smoothies, fruity bowls or juices. The recommended daily intake is about half a teaspoon.

Here is an example of an MSM Berry Smoothie Bowl

For the bowl you need:
• 150g raspberries
• 100 ml plant drink (e.g. oat milk)
• 2 teaspoons almond butter
• 1/2 banana
• 1g MSM powder
For the topping you will need:
• 1/2 banana
• 1 tsp chia seeds
• 1 teaspoon mixed sesame
• 1 teaspoon grated coconut

Simply mix all bowl ingredients with a blender until they have a creamy consistency. Then sprinkle with the toppings and enjoy.

External use

MSM powder can also be a real helper for skin, hair and nails.


MSM is great as conditioner. For this can you simply mix 1 tablespoon of MSM powder with 1 tablespoon of olive oil. Now distribute it in your hair, avoiding your roots. Finally, after 30 minutes of me-time, you can wash it off.

Face mask and peeling

MSM mask

To use MSM as a face mask, you can simply mix 1 tablespoon of the powder with 1 teaspoon of coconut or olive oil. Then spread this paste over your face (avoid mouth and eye area). Now relax for about 15 minutes, after which you can rinse off the mask with clear water.

If you massage it in in a circular motion and then rinse it off again, the sugar-like grains of the powder also have a peeling effect on your skin. Since the grit is not too coarse, you can use it 1-2 times a week.

bath additive

It couldn't be easier: you only need to add about 3 tablespoons of MSM powder to your bath water and then you can relax as usual.
After the bath, rinse off the skin well and enjoy its suppleness.

nail butter

Unfortunately, especially in winter, we often suffer from brittle nails.

Half a teaspoon of MSM powder mixed with half a teaspoon of olive oil and a teaspoon of coconut oil as DIY nail butter can help here.
Spread the butter on the nails and cuticles well and massage in.

Leave on for at least 10 minutes and then rinse off.

Hand and foot bath

Mix 1 tablespoon MSM powder with 1 tablespoon oil of your choice in a bowl and add lukewarm water.

Then you can put your hands or feet in the bath for 10 minutes and relax. Then rinse thoroughly.

So you see, regular use of the powder can change things in your body for the better. Curious?

    Liebe Irina, danke für deine gute Frage :)

    Für ein Gesichtsspray gegen Akne mit MSM und destilliertem Wasser kannst du je nach gewünschter Konzentration verschiedene Mischverhältnisse ausprobieren:

    1. Leichtes Gesichtsspray: Mische 1 Teil MSM-Pulver mit 10 Teilen destilliertem Wasser.
    2. Mittleres Gesichtsspray: Mische 1 Teil MSM-Pulver mit 5 Teilen destilliertem Wasser.
    3. Starkes Gesichtsspray: Mische 1 Teil MSM-Pulver mit 3 Teilen destilliertem Wasser.

    Beginne am besten mit einem schwächeren Mischverhältnis und teste, wie deine Haut darauf reagiert. Du kannst die Konzentration dann je nach Bedarf anpassen. Beachte auch, dass es einige Zeit dauern kann, bis du Ergebnisse siehst, vielleicht sogar bis zu vier Wochen. Bitte geduldig bleiben :) Ich empfehle, das Spray zunächst an einer kleinen Hautstelle zu testen, um eventuelle allergische Reaktionen zu vermeiden.

    Wenn du die Zeit findest, deine Erfahrungen hier zu teilen, würde ich mich sehr freuen :)

    Liebe Grüße

    Hallo, mich würde auch intressieren wie das Mischverhältnis MSM und Destilliertes Wasser am besten ist, möchte ein Gesichtsspray gegen Akne machen. Danke

  • Chris (puremetics)

    Liebe Sabine,
    das Mischverhältnis kann immer sehr individuell abhängig sein. Ich würde mit einer geringen Menge beginnen und schauen wie es sich verhält. Eine Steigerung ist später noch möglich.
    Mein Vorschlag wäre ein Mischverhältnis von 5% MSM zum Start bei 10 Sprühstößen täglich. Stellt sich keine Besserung ein, würde ich auf 20 Sprühstöße erhöhen. Stellt sich dann ebenfalls keine Besserung ein, würde ich die Dosis Schrittweiße im 2,5% erhöhen.
    Teile gerne deine Erfahrungen hier :)
    Liebe Grüße

  • Sabrine

    wie wäre das Mischungsverhältnis für einen Spray um direkt auf die Haut zu sprayen bei z.B. Juckreiz? Habt ihr da Erfahrung?
    Danke im voraus.
