Terms: Desquamation

Desquamation, as it applies to skin health, is the shedding of the outermost layer of the skin’s surface.  This is a natural and healthy process of the skin.  When functioning normally, shells are shed individually and unnoticeably.  Disturbances of this process can cause peeling and flakiness.
