The oils on your face help to fight fight the signs of ageing, however many people suffer with excess oil. When too much oil is produced, the pores become larger to accommodate the excess production. Excess androgens can also cause the pore lining to thicken, which blocks oil from getting out of the pores, and that can result in blackheads and white bumps. Using products with drying or irritating ingredients may seem like a good idea because they make your skin feel less oily, at least initially, but in the long run using such ingredients is a bad idea.
