Suggest remedies for Oily skin and acne

Dear sir I am sumi ,a nursing mom from India . my skin is very sensitive and oily . currently I use cetaphil cleanser , lotus matte sunscreen and a compact pressed powder for touch ups. but since I changed the brand of the pressed powder am getting lots of acne on my face . its so small and anyone can notice at a distance .
so currently i use suncross gel 26 as sunscreen. because whether here is so humid and I cant step out without using one.but sunscreen makes my skin oily so i touch it up with some pressed powder from lakme minerals.
Sir please suggest me some non oily sunscreen , calamine for me which is available in India .I also require a non comedogenic pressed powder too.
Thank You Sir

Hi Dear,

Welcome to HCM.

Understanding your concern. As per your query you have oily skin and acne which occurs when there is hormonal changes, stress and clogged pores of sebaceous gland filled with sebum ,dead skin and bacteria get infected. I would suggest you to make use of product containing benzoyl peroxide. Wash your face with mild soap and cold water twice a day , exfoliate your face once a week. You should apply aloe vera gel and apply azelaic acid containing cream twice a day. Drink plenty of water daily and add fresh fruits and vegetables to your diet. Apply Adapelene gel once at night. If condition doesn't start getting better in a month then consult dermatologist. Doctor may prescribe antibiotics course and can also go for chemical peel containing Glycolic acid.

Hope your concern has been resolved.

Get Well Soon.

Best Wishes,
Dr. Harry Maheshwari
