The products you use are to moisturise therefore will aggravate oily skin. I would suggest for mild symptoms like this you can either try a small amount of Benzoyl Peroxide or even a night retinoid.

Ok do you have any product suggestions to get rid of redness and acne scars?
Expert:  Dr Baker replied 12 days ago.

A retinoid would do that. La Roche do some products that are good.
