Have you tried any of these? https://www.health.com/skin-conditio...reen-oily-skin
With the flare up of spots, the GP can prescribe creams to help with acne if you haven't got any already. Also, after applying the cream in the daytime, at night wash your face with warm soapy water so the skin has no barriers. And allow the skin to 'breathe'.

The r/skincareaddiction subreddit should be able to help you.

I use Biore UV Aqua Rich Watery Essence, it is cosmetically elegant, is a chemical and physical sunscreen, and it is photostable. It protects against UVA and UVB too, so it is broad spectrum. It does have alcohol in the ingredients list (i think it is quite high up), so if you're sensitive to alcohols or have dry skin then you might not like it, or you might have to switch up moisturiser.

You should probably also figure out if your skin is dehydrated as well, as that can look like oily skin but not be oily, if you get what I am saying.
