Flakiness

What is Flakiness?

Flaky skin is most commonly skin that's too dry, although it can occasionally be a sign of another skin condition called seborrheic dermatitis. Most cases of flakiness come from skin that lacks moisture. It is common in the winter months and for people that spend more time indoors where their skin is exposed to dry heat.

Treatments

To reduce flakiness, it's important to treat the underlying problem - dry skin. Simple ways to reduce moisture loss is to avoid using soaps and harsh cleansers that damage the delicate layer that protects skin from dryness. Gentle exfoliation, moisturizing, and sunscreen is important to treat and maintain the skin hydrated. Always check with your dermatologist.

All about Flakiness

Flaky skin is most commonly skin that's too dry, although it can occasionally be a sign of another skin condition called seborrheic dermatitis. Most cases of flakiness come from skin that lacks moisture. Dry, flaky skin is especially common in the winter months when the air is dry and people spend more time indoors where their skin is exposed to dry heat.

What Causes It?

Dry, flaky skin is caused by a lack of moisture in the outermost layer of the skin called the epidermis. The epidermis consists of clusters of skin cells that are held together by lipids. These lipids help to prevent loss of water from the surface of the skin. Some people don't have enough of these lipids or the lipid layer is damaged, which makes it difficult for their skin to hold on to moisture. When this is the case, skin cells in the epidermis aren't shed in an orderly manner. Instead, they build up and cause skin to look flaky and feel rough to the touch.
