The Causes of Acne:
Most teenagers suffer from acne, spots, pimples and blemishes at some stage or another. There are many reasons for this. Over-active oil glands can cause acne because the greasier your skin is, the more prone you are to acne. Sometimes excitement causes spots. Then, just when you want to look your best, for that special party or date, your face becomes a disaster area. Hair hanging all over the face, particularly if youve got a fringe, can aggravate spots. Even constipation can cause spots.
Blackheads, eruptions and spots that simply refuse to go away, can cause a lot of unhappiness. And covering up the problem with cover-up make-up will only cover not clear, your skin. Thats why you need METINOX the tablets which go directly to the root cause of the problem, working through the bloodstream to cleanse and clear your skin. So, dont despair if youve tried everything and your skin hasnt improved. METINOX is the one acne, blackhead and boil remedy which really works.
Whilst taking METINOX always remember that the best results will come from a strict hygiene routine. So always use medicated soaps or gentle ones which contain an anti-bacterial ingredient. And remember that running, not static lukewarm water is the best cleansing treatment. And if you use a facecloth, use several and boil them frequently. Also, throw away anything like tissues or cotton wool that comes into contact with spots, immediately after use.
DOSAGE AND DIRECTIONS FOR USE:
Two to three tablets three times a day.
Be sure that while youre taking METINOX, you eat a simple but well-balanced diet consisting of whole-wheat bread, whole grain cereals, fruit and vegetables, lean meat, fish, white of eggs, cottage cheese and milk. For acne sufferers, cream cakes, chocolates, chips and cold drinks are taboo.
