Use a facial: cleanser that helps with oil skin, I recommend Cerave or Neutrogena. Use with warm water and rinse with cold. Avoid using products that make your skin dry, as this causes an increase in oil production by your body. After using the facial cleanser, use a facial lotion made by either of the 2 companies above. Best of luck!

Unknown spots: Without knowing what the spots are, it's really hard to give any advice. Although most spots aren't cancer, skin cancer is always possible. You should see a dermatologist to determine what they are, and how to treat them.

Lasers: Redness is caused by blood vessels in the face. Shrinking the blood vessels with lasers can help decrease the red appearance. Lasers which treat blood vessels include: ktp, nd:yag, pulsed dye, intense pulsed light (ipl). Sun and meds that increase sensitivity to the sun (ie: retin-a, certain oral antibiotics, accutane) exacerbate redness.
