I am going to get married in January so I want my face and skin to look clean and nice.

For this I regularly wash my face twice a day 2 3 mins massaging to remove all dirt.
Also I apply toner after washing face. My skin is very dry so I usually apply moisturizer/Glycerin at night while sleeping but when I get up, I usually see white heads in nose line area and where ever the face is oily.

Also I apply only sunscreen moisturizer while going to office but problem is - As much I am caring(I cover my face to protect my face from dust), I am getting pimples on my face.

I never had pimple problem since last 2 3 years but now when i take care i am getting and that too when the wedding day is near.

can you please guide/suggest me about m daily skin care routine or Am i doing something wrong.

also can you please prescribe me some medication to reduce these pimples as much as possible.

I am taking care of skin and face to look more good but my efforts are giving negative results.

Please help.
