  1. I would get an oil free moisturizer which could help regulate the oil production. Also, I would get a gentle cleannser such as Cetaphil to use instead of the soap. Witch hazel can work wonders too. Lastly, take it easy on the scrub and only use a couple times of week.
  2. I recently ordered a tube of oc eight mattifying gel. I have a very oily nose with lots of clogged pores and enlarged pores. Oc eight is supposed to absorb the oil while not clogging pores.

  6. Thanks for answering! I should have mentioned that I stopped using tazorac about three months ago and my skin is still constantly oily. I do not use a moisturizer. Do you think if it was the taz making my nose oily, the oil would go away over time?
  7. Hey everyone! I'm completely new here and just figuring my way around things. I am a 16 year old guy and I have what I consider a bad problem with the pores on my nose. I underwent a full cycle of accutane last year and all my pimples cleared up and they have not come back. After accutane, my derm prescribed me tazorac cream .05% to help with the nose blackheads that I still was getting. After a couple of months on the tazorac without seeing improvement, I noticed my nose started getting very oi
