Is at least SOME acne caused by oil?

Recommended Posts

I know it's widly known as a myth that oil causes acne, because there are people with oily skin and no acne but can't having oily skin be attributing?? I only ever get whiteheads (and blackheads).

Its not really a myth as such. No one thing alone causes acne really. Oil/Sebum does definitely contribute to it though, however oil isn't proportional to acne in that sense.

However, when my oil is low (mainly from eating a lot healthier low GL, decent fibre amounts), my acne is lower as well, so for me there is a reasonable correlation.
