On Feb 2, 2013, Probiotic Action reacted to an article posted on the health section of India.com, which proposed some do-it-yourself tips on how to reduce acne breakouts.
According to the article posted on India.com, there are three ways to eliminate acne from your skin and keep it at bay. The article said opening pores, killing bacteria and reducing the oil are essential in the fight against acne.
