    I've seen in some articles, they say that consuming oil causes pimples, and in some it's been regarded as a disproved myth.

    Well, what is the true answer?

    NO

    pimples are caused by lack of exfoliation.
    you need oil on the skin to keep the outer layer of skin from drying out because when it dries out it doest exfoliate well.

    edit:I see the question was about EATING oil not washing oil off the skin. My bad.

    It is important to note, however, that one's diet impacts the health of ones skin, and certain diets can make breakouts more common. The link between diet and acne, though, seems more tied to carbohydrates and glycemic index than oil itself.

    I remember reading about this in a Clearasil pamphlet from sex-ed class in 7th grade. The answer is no; eating oily/greasy foods does not cause or exacerbate acne.
