IVE BEEN ON THE REG FOR A GOOD 3 WEEKS NOW. MY FACE LOOKS A LOT SMOOTHER AND CLEARER. THE RED MARKS LEFT BEHIND HAVE FADED A BIT, HOWEVER, THERE APPEARS TO EB A LAYER OF DEAD SKIN ON MY ENTIRE FACE. IT KIND OF HARD TO EXPLAIN, BUT I GET THE FEELING THAT IF I EXFOLIATE MY FACE WILL BE MUCH CLEARER.

my problem is, how do i exfoliate in a way that wont irritate my skin. Im pretty used to the BP by now, so im willing to add another topical that helps with exfoliation, but im not sure how to go about this all.

Some people do well with a light exfoliation, such as using the baby brush method or even a good washcloth. If you go for the manual and more harsh forms of exfoliation, say St. Ives, use sparingly, not every day, maybe just once every other day or even less (I will exfoliate with St. Ives maybe once a week - but never anymore than that!)

I recommend trying one of the AHA moisturizers. Like Neutrogena Healthy Skin Face Lotion or Lac-Hydrin Five. They will moisturize and exfoliate without the irritation that manual exfoliation can cause.
