Ya having oily skin is really bad man. I have suffered out of this. there shall be black marks, skin looks dull and you get acne what not. But again dry skin is more worse. So should be a bit happier for that reason I guess. Avoid use of cosmetics, wash you face every hour. That shall help to resolve the issue. Also use a good cream at night for acne and blackheads.

General & Family Physician Dr. Radhika Thyagaraju's  Response
oily skin is prone to having pimples due to excess production oof sebum. Also can be an imbalance in the harmones. I would advise you to wash your face regularly about 5 times a day. Use only oil free sunscress. Do not use too many cosmetics. If the pimles gets infected consult a drrmatologist who wil prescribe you antibiotics for the same. But i would advise you to consult a dermatologist so as to identify the cause for the same and get treated accordingly. I hope i have answered your query. Take care
