I have this same problem. The edges around my nose are especially flakey. What actually happened is that I ended up applying a bunch more than normal moisturizer at night and more in the day. It eventually eliminates the flakiness (after 2-4 days). Downside is that you are left with oily shiney skin. My solution to that is to blot the oil away. I wait 20-30 minutes after moisturizing to do this (only in the morning, no one sees my oiley face at night..., but blot if you're going out at night though). This method works pretty well. I still have minimal flakes around the edge of the nose, but much less than before. My skin doesn't seem to flake anywhere else other than the nose (it used to flake on my chin and cheeks).
And as long as I'm blotting (with oil paper, kleenex, napkins, any clean paper source), my skin looks OK.
