BiologyELI5: Why do forehead pimples disappear faster than cheek pimples

I'm not a professional but I believe it's because your cheeks are a much more traveled place for your hands and food, thus comes into contact with more oil. There's also more fat in your cheeks than your forehead, giving the pimple more room to hide and reform.

I had a feeling that the fat caused the pimples to remain. Thanks!
