It is absolutely true that people with oily skin are more likely to face such a problem like acne.

Excessive production of sebum (the product of the sebaceous glands) often the result of hormonal changes. In general, oily skin is often a "harbinger" of acne, has mostly hormonal reasons. Along with rashes caused by acne, people with oily skin have to deal with on a daily basis greasy sheen caused by a large number of sebum on the skin surface.

Therefore, even very oily skin, and even with a very strong acne should be cleaned only twice a day - once in the morning and once - in the evening. If you need to remove excess fat from the skin at a different time, just attach to face a soft, clean paper towel - it will absorb the excess.

The reason for decrease in immunity is an intensive growth of the organism in which the desired number of immune cells just do not have time to be produced.

Skin immunity is also reduced due to a sharp increase in production of sebum under the influence of hormones. This changes the chemical properties of sebum - it becomes more viscous. All this contributes to the penetration into the skin pathogens often staphylococci often dwell on the surface of the skin of healthy people.

Infectious agents penetrate into the roots while vellus facial hair (hair follicles), in the ducts of the sebaceous glands and cause infectious inflammation.
