I have always had very greasy skin, I have had thin melanoma and I have age spots n fine lines. What skin care routine should I follow

These are the key ingredients that you should use as part of your daily skincare regime so look for products that contain these:
SPF of 30 plus (UVA and UVB) eg in day face cream designed for oily skin (there are a number)
Topical anti-oxidant eg vitamin C (usually found as a serum)
Retinoid eg retinol, as an ingredient of a night cream. Retinoids are particularly good at regulating oily prone skin
Glycolic acid based wash, perhaps three times per week.

I hope that this helps
