first you can try letting the warm shower water run over your face, then lather your hands up with your cleanser and gently massage around. Usually the warm water will have softened and loosened up the flakes, and massaging the cleanser will usually lift them off.

if that doesn't work well enough, then consider adding in a moisturizer with some AHA in it (glycolic or lactic acid). These are chemical exfoliants and imo work better and with less irritation than scrubs do.

Consider getting Neutrogena Healthy Skin Face Lotion and use it once a day in place of your regular moisturizer. That should help get the flaking under control.
