I have had whiteheads this past year, along with dry skin. So I started using moisturizer, and ever since I started using moisturizer my face has been SO oily and its annoying. I don't have many whiteheads anymore and my face is cleared up but everyone keeps saying "Why is your nose so shiny?" Does anybody else have this problem? And if so, do you have any advice?

Try 100% Aloe Vera Gel instead of moisturizer.

I actually use a mixture of aloe vera gel and moisturizer. Using just aloe vera gel may lead to your skin drying out.

It may seem strange but sometimes your skin can be overly dry and produce even more oil. I'm also moving this to the mild acne forum.

Try using a moisturizing gel instead of a cream. Often they can be less reflective and sink in better. You could use those little oil blotting sheets during the day when you feel you are becoming shiny, they are really cheap at the drugstore.

You can try homemade hydrating face masks. For oily skin rose-based mask ,mud/ clay based masks are great for balancing out your skin.
