We all know about dead skin and how important it is to remove our dead skin but sometimes when the upper layer of our skin gets damaged it starts peeling and becomes flaky. Many of us have this problem during the winter season. Our skin becomes flaky when our skin's natural oil dries up and causes our skin to get dehydrated and damaged. This is when the upper layer of our skin begins to peel and come off. It is very important to treat flaky skin and get rid of it instead of covering it up with makeup or just moisturising your skin.

You should start by consulting a doctor. It's very important to understand the underlying cause of flaky skin because it can also happen due to many other reasons like ringworm, psoriasis, eczema, and other such skin problems.
