I'm 30, with under eye lines, some blotchiness from sun damage on cheeks, veins/red capillaries on my nose and few on cheeks. I also have big pores. So I put Tazorac under my eyes for crows feet and a dab a little on my cheeks, where I have blotchiness Should I use Tazorac everday? Thank you
Use Tazorac Everyday for Several Skin Issues?

Yes, If Tolerated
Tazarac can be a fairly rough drug. However, if your skin tolerates it, I feel that it should be part of everyone's skin care regimen.
Tazorac for undereye lines and blotchiness
Tazorac should help with undereye lines and blotchiness (sun-damaged skin) as well as (possibly) reduce the appearance of large pores. I do not believe Tazorac helps with blood vessels. I agree with Dr. Oppenheim, that the key is tolerability. I always advise patients either to apply a thin layer of moisturizer prior to Tazorac or to mix Tazorac with moisturizer so as to reduce redness/irritation/peeling. If you are planning a pregnancy in the near future or are pregnant Tazorac is not for you, as it can cause severe birth defects.
