Pimples?: Some people cannot tolerate too much oil on the face because it may induce pimples although less likely at your age. About 85% of the people after puberty have a mold residing normally at their skin (pityrosporum ovale) which thrives on oil and may cause seborrhea on some people. Use a less oily moisturizer on you face and if still troublesome , consult a dermatologist.
