Angry Oily Skin, flaky up close, build-up around nose?

Hi guys-

I have very oily skin, possibly rosacea, but when I put make-up on, my skin looks really flaky and dull, and around my nose I have build up. It looks really gross.

Just curious as to what would be SAFE to use to get rid of the flakiness and buildup, without making me break out (such as moisturizer?)

Any Ideas are GREATLY appreciated!

I love to use St. Ives gentle scrub for SENSITIVE skin. I use it twice daily and it makes my skin look so much better and exfoliates well. I don't care what derms say about not using scrubs...I know for a fact that my skin looks 100 x better when I use it!!!!!

yeah, Scrubs are good to use, i use a tea tree and witch hazel one, it works great for inflammation and scrubs away the dull dead layer of skin that i may have, overall i find it helpful for scarring.
Prometheus is really cool, so is sweetjade, they all know theyre stuff and have given me ever growing confidence with acne.

Jojoba oil and a good scrub.
