I exfoliate with baking soda and use it at night when getting makeup off. I also use it in the mornings when I wake up.

Is that too much?

Does it hurt my skin?

Too much exfoliation is bad. The purpose of exfoliating is to remove dead surface skin. You, however, aren't giving your skin enough time. You're just constantly taking off the fresh skin cells.

You're doing much more harm than good. Read this:

Yea exfoliating that much isn't good for your skin at all.  It irritates it.

Exfoliating for makeup removal is too much. A simple wash will do.
