Have you tried Clearasil products? They are great for oily/acne prone skin. I would work on clearing the skin first and then applying an oil-free foundation to help you cover some of the spots. I agree entirely with @Oleung.....check your diet and try to stay away from greasy/high sugar foods. If it's really bad a Dermatologist is the best answer. Hope this helps a bit!

Also, try avoiding makeup while you're detoxifying, but if foundation is a must, don't apply too much and stay away from anything liquid/creamy based. Go for mineral foundations. They're loose powder meant for oily skin.

All their mineral makeup are formulated with acne-fighting ingredients!

How bad is your skin? I highly suggest you switch up your diet. I've struggled with oily/acne prone skin for years and nothing has worked better than detoxifying. Eat lots of nutritious foods, more of the veggies, and lot and lots of water. Get rid of all the greasy, fried, sugar-filled foods. Trust me, if you can do that for at least 2 weeks straight, you'll see a BIG improvement.

When you've managed to do that, stick to it. Then, you can focus on buying the right products for your face. I suggest you see the doctor first since acne is a medical condition and through consultation he'll be able to prescribe the right medication and/or topical solution for your skin. He'll probably give you benzoyl peroxide and a bottle of antibiotics.

Finally, search for over-the-counter products that you can use on a daily/weekly basis (facial cleanser, moisturizer, scrubs, etc). Try using products with salicylic acid. They're meant to dry up oil. Avoid anything cream-based and stick to gels or liquids. Whatever you do, don't overwash your face! 2-3 times a day is enough, no matter how oily your skin gets. Usually the reason why your skin is so oily is because you cleanse more than necessary and your body has to find a way to keep your skin moisturized, thus the overproduction of oil. I can't stress enough how important it is to moisturize. Do some research and experimenting to find the right products that work best for you.
