My nose and forehead tend to get quite oily throughout the day...simple question does this cause acne?

Thanks

yes, it does. pimples form over time from aculumation of dirt and sebum. i have an oily t-zone myself, so i always make sure to blot when it gets shiny. oh, exfoliating once a week helps clear out the pores also.

It is all about pore size. If your pores are too small for the amount of sebum acne will result. My mom has always had oily skin with huge pores and they've never gotten clogged.

Two ways to reduce acne are to either reduce sebum or increase pore size. Steaming will give some benefit because of it 'opens pores'.
