which exfoliant is good?

i have peeling on my nose and sides that wont budge......even when i exfoliate it and moisturize

i use a soft sponge and i can see the skin coming off since those products u get in stores didnt seem to help...the ones with beaded type things...i dont see how that works

but im wondering if theres a spacific sponge or towel to use......this sponge it says its for cleansing but i didnt want anything harsh

i was goin to try baking soda and water with the sponge but i think its to harsh togther

I'm no expert but using an exfoliant to get rid of dry flaky skin doesn't seem like the best approach. Exfoliants are a little more harsh than cleansers and can dry you up a bit more. What cleanser or other products are you currently using? As for exfoliants I recommend the Niva For Men Energising Scrub, it's prolly the closest scrub to the higher end products that you can only find online or in big cites. I also use the Nivea For Men Sensitive Extra Gentle sensitive skin cleanser, it's very light, alcohol and fragance free. This is also as close to you can get without going to the high end products in my opinion, as well as many others over at the Menessentials.com boards.
