More Information: It's hard to know without more information. Is this something you've always had? Or is it new? Does it itch? Is it everywhere? Or only in certain places. You could be experiencing dry skin which may appear as you described above. Also if you've been sunburned recently and are shedding skin which appears white and translucent. Try using gentle moisturizers to keep skin healthy.
