Thanks for writing to us.
Sometimes use of too many creams can induce acne in an oily skin.
As your blemishes are reduced, I would advise you to continue with brite night only. You may stop brite day. Suncros aqua gel is a good sunscreen. Other options for oily skin are suncote and photobloc and ultra guard.
Use a Glycolic acid based facewash like melawash twice in a day. It would reduce oiliness, help in acne as well as pigmentation. Use adapalene clindamycin combination or adapalene nadoxin combination gel over acne lesions.

Hopefully in few days your skin would improve.
Should there be a query, please write back.
Take care
