how to remove dead/peeling/flaking skin

I assume the dead/peeling/flaking skin is due to my first week of using differin. How would i got about removing these dead/peeling/flaking skin from my face? Its usually teh ones that are liek haflway coming out, and i really don't want to use paper tissues to poke at it and remove it. But i'm sure it beats using my fingers and nails and tyring to remove it by getting a grip on it.

Use a gentle scrub to remove dead flaking skin, followed by a gentle moisturizer.

After wash my face. I use a wet, warm towel to message my face in a circular motion. This should get all of your flaky skin out.

I use a loofah sponge. If you use one don't scrub hard! It'll really irritate your skin. Just gently go in circles to get off the dead skin and then rinse. It's best to use with a wash or water. Good luck.
