Dermatologist 's  Response
Hello,
Welcome to healthcare magic,
I understand that you have oily skin and uneven skin tone. I would recommend you to use a face wash twice a day ideally a one containing salicylic acid as it helps in exfoliation and to decrease oiliness. (eg : Speelac face wash)
The most important product will be a sunscreen. Always use a sunscreen in the mornings even if indoors and even in winters ( eg: Neutrogena Ultrasheer Dry touch sunblock) and reapply it every three to four hours. You may apply a compact powder over the sunscreen so that there is a matte finish.
At night you may apply a lightening cream containing kojic acid ( eg: Kojivit gel) over the face before going to sleep.
You may consult a dermatologist practicing cosmetology for few sittings of chemical peels for faster improvement.
Hope this helped,
Take care.
