Oily nose

9 posts in this topic

Okay, i've been off tane for about a month now, and my skin is oily again. It's extremely oily on and around the nose, a little bit better on the forehead, and not that much on the cheeks. (I still have cysts and pimples, which is very discouraging.)

So, i was wondering if there is anything i could do for my SUPER oily nose!

ADVICE AND INPUT NEEDED! eusa_angel.gif

well the only way to stop oil production is to start accutance again. other wise wash a few times a day. you could also put acne medication on it. Acne medication has stuff it in that dries your face.

well, another course of tane is out of the question because tane fucked me up.

been off tane 1 month.

Ah... my skin (not the face) is so dry; it's itchy! When will the body oil come back? I'm itchy 24/7!!! I hope it's not permanent... eusa_pray.gif

clean it with some oil blotting paper.. and wash oftenly like 3-4times a day with soap or facial cleanser.

i'm still on tane, i have no idea y new cyst pop ups when the skin is not oily... its kind of crappy.

Isn't overwashing suppose to be bad in general? Most people say that overwashing would cause the skin to dry, leading to an increase in sebum production to prevent moisture loss as well as to make up for it.

don't over wash. That's not good for anybody. I think your skin is just trying to regulate maybe after being on accutane. Treat it normally for now. wash once a day, twice max, GENTLY, and blot with a paper towel if necessary. This way the skin won't be overdried causing it to overproduce oil.

yea, washing too often is really bad. I remember when I washed my face only in the morning and in the evening, my face wasn't as oily as usual..

p.s. I hope my oil won't come back in full blow! But better oil than acne..
