Dry skin but still piples

Piples are breaking out.ut the pimples are not only ones and causing pain. pimples are not drying oot but gradually got smaller in size and remained as it is for last 3 months. using any moisturiser is increasing it.but the other parts of my skin are drying out. along with that dark spots are appearing on my skin although i drink sufficient of water. the pimples and dark spots are more prominent after i come back from sun. but i have to go out. no sunscreen is suiting me. the skin looks better after i apply fruit juice and wash off. but again same thing happens after some hours out in sun.
