Gently exfoliating while on the regimen?

I don't think it is recommend per the FAQ's page and the video. If you're having trouble with the flaking, jojoba oil is supposed to help. I'm going to see if I can get some at the store tomorrow.

Should I be exfolitating with a wash cloth when I'm washing my face, or will this do more harm than good?

Avoid the washcloth and continue with gentle cleansing. Once you've been on the regimen for at least three months and have adapted to the full amount of BP, then consider adding in a mechanical or chemical exfoliant. Mechanical would be something like the baby's hair brush method (I do it extremely gently) or the Neutrogena Healthy Skin with AHA night version lotion (the glycolic acid in it will provide gentle exfoliation), or Lac Hydrin 5 (lactic acid provides gentle exfoliation), etc.

Massaging in the jojoba oil does work nicely for removing flakes; I like Vaseline petrolatum jelly for that purpose though.
