Only last week, British Daily Mail again referred to acne problem - embarrassing experience for more and more persons.

Acne is most common skin disorder, especially for teenagers, but growing number of adults also suffer from it. It can be managed with right awareness. It is a bacterial infection caused by body’s internal chemistry due to following reasons :
 1)Hormonal activity (primarily from androgens, male hormones); 2 Inflammation; 3)Overproduction of oil by the sebaceous (oil) gland; 4)Irregular or excessive shedding of dead skin cells; 5) Buildup of bacteria in the pores, leading to inflammation; and 6) Sensitive reactions to makeup, irritating skin-care ingredients, allergies or medicines.
Acne problem occurs when sebaceous (oil) glands attached to the hair follicles are stimulated. Associated with increased oil production is a change in the manner in which the skin cells mature, predisposing them to clog the follicular pore. The clog can appear as a “whitehead” if it is covered by a thin layer of skin, or “blackhead” if exposed to the air – the darker exposed portion of the plug is called a “blackhead”.  Pimples or tender red bumps on the face are another form of mild acne. Blackheads are oxidized oil, not dirt.

To meet this growing problem, HERBALLY RADIANT launched CLEAN series ofCleanser, Toner, Cream, Scrub and Serum.  Special tea tree essential oil blended with selected natural ingredients make CLEAN series amazingly effective (Good reviews from consumers). The combined effect of these special formulations has immensely helped customers in getting rid of their problem, and regaining smooth and bright skin.

Warning consumers against some heavily marketed so-called acne-relief products,  FDA issued a warning that popular acne products sold over-the-counter under brand names such as Proactiv and Neutrogena can cause rare but serious and potentially life-threatening allergic reactions. The FDA advised consumers to stop using their topical acne products and seek emergency medical help if they experience hypersensitivity reactions such as throat tightness, difficulty in breathing, feeling faint or swelling of the eyes, face, lips or tongue.
According to the agency, non-prescription acne products containing the active ingredients benzoyl peroxide or salicylic acid are of concern. It added that non-prescription products containing the active ingredients benzoyl peroxide or salicylic acid and marketed under brands such as Proactiv, Neutrogena, MaxClarity, Oxy, Ambi, Aveeno and Clean & Clear, as well as store brands, were of concern. The agency said it has received 131 reports of such hypersensitivity reactions from consumers or manufacturers, most of these were received since 2012.
The manufacturers are pushing for glamorous marketing campaigns, without naming the key ingredients or precaution on the labels. “There is currently no mention of the possibility of these very severe allergic reactions on the product labels," Mona Khurana, a medical officer at FDA said in a statement.
