Oily skin and flakes... oh my! :D

I have always had oily skin...now that I'm 26, seems I'm also getting flaky skin on my cheeks (around my nose especially), chin and a bit on my forehead. What gives? Is my cleanser too strong for my now "mature" skin? :/ (I just use the orange Neutrogena in the pump bottle).

Do you think I should switch cleansers?

Also, what's the best way to get rid of the flakes.... scrubs (I have St. Ives but it doesn't seem to work *that* great) or what?

Thanks in advance!
