Dry skin = Acne due to thick sebum?

Recommended Posts

I have a friend who gets the hormonal type of acne especially around her jawline although she has dry skin. I get acne too but it is usually on my cheeks and I have very oily skin all over my face. I think I read this somewhere on this site that people with dry skin can get acne because sometimes the little sebum they do produce can be quite thick. I experienced this when I was taking the yasmine Birth control pill and my sebum on my chin became so thick that I could literally squeeze out the sebum from there. I wonder if there are any tests to do which can show how thick your sebum is.
