My mom used to have this when she was young and she just used lotion frequently and it goes away....drinking water too does help....

Yes, flakey skin generally means that you have a problem with the lipid concentration and colesterol in the cells of your skin. This is usually "fixed" with certain lotions that contain modified phospholipids and cholesterol esters i think. I may be wrong but i am right with the general idea. It is impossible to tell over the internet what to use, and anyway, i am more into molecular biology than medicine.
Good luck anyway

I would consult a dermatologist if it's a major problem.
