Thanks for writing to us.

Since excessive use of moisturizer has caused pimples it indicates that you probably have an oily skin and continuous use of moisturizing agents in humid environment has caused blocked glands leading to pimples.

For a clear and radiating skin you need to wash your face with a gentle face wash with minimal exfoliation at least twice daily. You can use himalaya face wash gel with micro molecules to clean your skin.

Regarding a day care cream, the best option for you would be to use oil of olay --OLAY day care cream by procter and can also use ORIFLAME organic fairness cream with spf. It is best to avoid any night cream and simply wash your face before going to bed till your pimples resolve.

I hope my answer and recommendations are adequate and helpful. Waiting for your further follow up queries if any.
