With proper treatment plan and strict adherence to the treatment advised, you will have a clear countenance for sure. Use a mild medicated face wash containing salicylic acid to wash your face twice in a day. Too much washing of face can harm your skin too. Use a water based moisturiser and sunscreen meant for oily skin. As you are having acne flare, you need to take a course of oral antibiotic and/or isotretinoin depending on the type of acne lesions you are having. Amongst the topicals one can use clindamycin, benzoyl peroxide, nadoxin along with adapalene or tretinoin. So basically a proper analysis of your skin is required, before suggesting which oral and topical therapy would suit you best. As your skin is extremely oily and you are getting pigmentation marks, you can also take salicylic peels as it will reduce oiliness over your face, treat acne flare and reduce pigmentation spot. Take care.
