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.
