Thank you for the question.

This is a difficult question to answer over the net as ideally one would like to examine the skin before deciding on the best treatment approach.

Generally speaking both acne and oily skin types can be managed. We have excellent skincare products that are specifically indicated for oily and acne skin. Furthermore there are a number of medical prescription products that will also help reduce and even clear acne. This includes antibiotics, hormone control tablets such as the oral contraceptive and if necessary Roaccutane or similar.

My advice would be to see your family doctor or a dermatologist who can examine the acne and decide what the best course of medical treatment would be.

Then to control the oily/acne skin using a topical skin regime typically I would look at the Lamelle Clarity range: https://skinmiles.com/shop/brand/lamelle/clarity-corrective/

We have had great feedback and improvement with the following products for acne/oily skin:

 

LAMELLE Acnevelle Plus: https://skinmiles.com/product/lamelle-acnevelle-plus/

LAMELLE Clarity Active Cleanse: https://skinmiles.com/product/lamelle-clarity-active-cleanse/

LAMELLE Clarity Corrective AM: https://skinmiles.com/product/lamelle-clarity-corrective-am/

LAMELLE Clarity Corrective PM Plus: https://skinmiles.com/product/lamelle-clarity-corrective-pm-plus-2/

 

I have added links to the products so you can read some more info, check their uses and instructions on how to use them.

I hope the above has helped.

Kind regards
