Hi thanks for writing here.Celltone snail gel contains copper peptides which is mainly used for face rejuvination ,it will improve your black spots to some extent but no use for reliving your blackheads ,For your pimples you can just apply benzyl peroxide 2.5 % gel at night along with clindamycin at day time.You can continue with exfoliator for cleaning up your face.Just avoid sunscreen since it may block pores and produce more pimples.Take antoxidant tablets as they will improve skin tone and also give can consult a dermatologist and take treatment under his guidance for better results.thanks

Welcome to HealthCare Magic.
The products that you use are derived from snail. Snail gel has peptides in them that are claimed to have anti-aging and repair properties. But these are not US FDA approved products. We dermatologists usually won't recommend these products as there are no scientific evidence of benefits to back them.
You seem to be having Acne. Go for a proper treatment of Acne and consult a dermatologist for the same. You can use an antibiotic gel like clindamycin in the morning and Benzoyl peroxide 2.5 % or Adapalene 0.1% at night. Use a face wash containing 1 or 2 % salicylic acid twice a day. Procedures like comedone extraction will help to clear a lot of blackheads, so that the gels work faster.
You stay in a hot and sunny area, so apply a sunscreen every day morning preferably a gel based sunscreen not cream or lotion. Gel and water based products are recommended as they do not block the pores and cause new pimples. Reapply sunscreen every two hours if you continue to be outdoors.
Avoid excess milk and milk products like cheese, chocolates, sweets, sugary foods and drinks. Eat a lot of fruits rich in vitamin A.
Hope this helped
Take care
