Personally I use the chemical exfoliant route as it's less harsh to my skin. Glycolic acid and salicylic acid are your best friends here. Paulas choice is a good starting point for well formulated acids.
I'd go down the chemical exfoliation route rather than harsh scrubs which are bad for your skin. I'm currently using the Nip & Fab Glycolic Pads and Serum and they leave my skin so smooth. I have mostly oily skin but I can get very flaky and dry too. I've been using these 3 times a week and I've noticed a big difference in the texture of my skin and don't really struggle with flakiness as much now.
