Few things: Acne has alot of factors involved start by identifying triggers, especially food. People often say oil foods/ chocolate, sugary foods trigger it. Try to avoid that. Next try skin cleansers to remove the oil from your face. If that doesn't work , talk to your doctor about topical treatments. Good luck!
