Are redheads more prone to acne???

I am a redhead and have had acne for 12 years. Some years are better than others.

It seems like every redhead I know has or has had acne.

I wonder why this is???
I would think that women of Mediterranean ancestry would be more likely to experience acne, because they tend to produce more oil. But maybe it's more obvious on natural redheads because redheads tend to have very pale skin.
i've never had a serious problem with it, though the scarring i had from a bout in my teenage years did take some time to disappear.

my cousin Cindy never had more than a zit or two, but the ex-Mr.-Rouquin had cystic acne well into his 20s.
