One often deals it with medications probably antibiotics and sometime following healthy life styles such as take diet low in fat and avoiding oily, junk foods. But recently it was proven in various research studies regarding the potential side effects associated with long term use of antibiotics for acne treatment.

The herbs used have anti-microbial, antioxidant and anti-inflammatory activity.

The physical evaluations were determined manually and the anti-bacterial activities of extracts were tested against acne causing bacteria Staphylococcus aureus. The combination of cinnamon, neem and aloe vera based facewash has suitable antimicrobial activity against acne causing bacteria.
