Remove acne scars and a less oily skin

My skin becomes oily quickly. I now use a product that helps to minimize it, NanoBlur, but when I don't want to wear face make up my skin gets oily within an hour.

I think you could reduce the number of products, and maybe add a few other actives to help with the oiliness and clogged pores. For example, you could cut out the Hyaluronic acid serum (you are getting hyaluronic acid from your moisturizer already), but add a serum with azelaic acid instead? I was also wondering if you are using both the micellar water and the Inkey cleanser in the PM? (Btw, you can also cut out the micellar water in the AM, just a splash of water is enough in the AM for most people. Less cleansing is better for the skin barrier)
