Our bodies produce sebum, an oily substance we secrete to make the skin waterproof and to keep it from drying out. People who have naturally oily skin tend to have larger pores. This happens because when oil and dirt collect in your skin, your skin swells and your pores look larger than they normally would.
Sun damage, which typically accumulates with age -- the older you are, the more you've been exposed to the sun -- also affects the appearance of pores. It makes your skin thicken, causing skin cells to collect around the edges of your pores, which stretch them out.
The METRIN Skincare System includes a cleansing process that enables the removal of surface impurities so debris and oil can be rinsed off the skin. During this step, the skin is also softened, which helps to assist the removal of blackheads in the next exfoliation process.
The Lathering Cleanser contains a gentle, non-abrasive liquid exfoliant that penetrates deep into pores to draw out blockages or impurities. It also helps to prevent blackheads by aiding your skin's natural process of shedding dead skin cells.
METRIN’s Protective Lotion helps to firm, tone and protect your skin so impurities are kept out of your pores. With organic aloe vera as the active ingredient, antibacterial properties provided added protection for the skin`s surface. It also acts as a humectant - binding and holding moisture to the skin.
