Need shedding maintenance advice (On Mandelic Acid)

Just started with Mandelic Acid a week ago and saw instant results but Im visibly shedding now and I know thats good but I work face to face with people a lot and even with emu oil (Thanks Maya although its shiny) I get visible flakes at work. Especially when I eat or laugh.

After I shower I have tons of visible shedding and slough off the large ones with tweezers (I dont rip. dont worry just the easy ones) but there must be an easier way.

Should I scrub harder?

Would a weekly lactic peel help? (Does this make all the skin peel off at once. IE after applying it and waking up all my skin will be on the pillow)

Moisturizer is really your best option - Maybe try something more moisturizing than Emu Oil.... I don't think it's a good idea to pull off skin that isn't ready. Another option would be to use a bit less Mandelic Acid or use it less frequently so that you won't peel so much.

i think you should just go about your normal business, if people ask, tell them the truth.....the less you try and disguise it the quicker your face will get better

But these are ready to fall off. You can't possibly go out in public with these guys. I hear ya Sgt Pepper but Id rather have it fixed.
