thanks for the query,
oily skin needs extra care than normal or dry skin, so the first aim should be to reduce the oil nature of your skin, which are the predisposing factors for pimple/acne to occur. This can be done by washing your face atleast 3-4 times a day, or you can use mild face washes also another alternative would be to use soaps like acnederm which balances the pH of your skin.
For acne per se use acne crream like FACECLIN/ERYTOP
with all these you must modify your food habits, eat lot of foods rich in water content, vitamins, anti oxidants and minerals. drink atleast 8-10 glasses of water to flush all the toxic metabolites from your system. Avoid junk foods which are heavy on fats and oils.
if you use cosmetics, use the one which are water based, and ensure you thoroughly remove them by washing face with water or cleansers.
if you follow the above procedures regularly you can keep your skin healthy and pimple free.
