  1.  try avoiding to apply creams to your face.
  2.  keep your face plain and keep splasing water frequently.
  3. wash your face 3 times a day, any face wash you r comfortable with. i would suggest to go with everyouth/garnier face wash products.
  4.  as your face is oily u need not worry of applying moisturizer.
  5.  for pimples u can try applying Acnesol lotion only on affected regions, it works!!!.

You need to have patience to treat this problem.

use lemon juice only to the oily regions of the face. identify that the all of your face will be not oily, only the parts around the nose, lip will be more oily. apply regularly lemon juice to that part more and less on the other parts

The oily skin is mainly due to excess of sebum production. You need to wash your face frequentlu using a soap which will suit your skin.
