A common misconception is to dry out the pimple, but that causes your skin to over produce oil to compensate. A great way to combat oily skin is to cleanse your face with grape seed oil. It not only cleanses the bad oils off, but adds moisture as well as lightens dark spots from previous pimples. It takes a week or two for your skin to adjust, but I swear by this. If you dong believe me, google it!!
