Acne Help for Adults and Teens
Acne among adults is as real an issue as it is for teenagers, and there’s help available if you’re looking in the right place. Acne is a skin condition that affects over 15% of adult women and 5% of adult men. Combined with a jumble of old wives’ tales and ‘miracle cures’, acne can be an emotionally painful and frustrating ordeal for teens and adults alike. While many products on the market may offer instant solutions, a better approach is to focus on neutralizing skin imbalances to eradicate acne at the root. A key to that is understanding the cause behind acne.
What causes acne?
Acne occurs when sebum, oil that occurs naturally in our skin, clogs the skin’s pores. This blocked oil can then support skin-surface bacteria, which cause the spot to become inflamed, red and sore – what we call a zit, pimple, whitehead or blackhead.
Acne occurs where we have the most sebaceous glands (sebum-producing), including the face, neck, back, shoulders and chest. Sebum production is controlled by our hormones, which is why acne is observed primarily in teenagers and young adults, but also in menopausal women.
How to get rid of acne?
Despite what many people believe, acne is not something that just needs to be “waited out”. A complete skin care program designed to balance the condition of the skin can be especially effective to treat mild to moderate acne.
Some important points to remember:
- be gentle – cleanse and exfoliate gently but effectively, without irritating your skin to minimize skin’s excess oil production. Hydrating your skin consistently after cleansing will also help reduce skin’s excess oil production over time and will also help protect it. Scrubbing, picking and popping can cause irritation and leave the skin more susceptible to acne bacteria. Also, choose products with gentle ingredients that won’t dry or irritate the skin.
- give it time –there is no such thing as a miracle cure that will remedy acne overnight. If you don’t see results right away, don’t give up! It can take up to 12 weeks for your skin to adjust to a new skincare program before you start seeing real results
- stick with it– after your acne has improved and you feel confident about your skin, continue following your skin care program so you will keep seeing results
- get help– if you’ve been using a complete skincare program for 12-16 weeks and have not seen results, consult a dermatologist. He or she may consider prescribing an acne medication that can be applied to the skin or taken by mouth to supplement your skincare program. Serious acne is not just a cosmetic skin disorder; it can have serious effects on a person’s emotional well-being and warrants professional advice.
The Metrin Skincare System, a combination of 5 products, has been designed to work together, synergistically with your skin to help in skin exfoliation, skin cell regeneration, keeping the bacteria low, and rebalancing nutrients to keep the skin feeling young, healthy for a lifetime. Instead of targeting specific symptoms, the system cleanses, nourishes, and protects your skin to enhance skin’s natural performance. In 4 to 6 skin cell turnover cycles, you can see major changes; that’s how our users, who struggled with stubborn acne for years, ended up seeing noticeable changes long-term!
“I was one of those teenagers with very troublesome skin. In fact, my face was very scarred from acne. My mum started me on Metrin, and within a couple of months, the difference was amazing. Friends who hadn’t seen me since I’d been away to university couldn’t believe how smooth my skin had become. I’m almost 40 now and I still use it daily. I wouldn’t be without it.” – Blair Layton
“I was having problems with dry skin, wrinkles and adult acne. But Metrin took care of all my facial problems. Now my skin has transformed, my skin is noticeably softer and smooth, and I don’t have any wrinkles (except laugh lines!) and my adult acne has disappeared.” – Betty Swift
The System was first developed in 1932 and has since maintained the integrity of its original formula that is trusted by our most loyal customers to deliver incredible results, gently and without irritation.
