In brief: Not possible

Unfortunately, it is not possible to get rid of skin flaking permanently.
However, you can treat it with lachydrin which contains lactic acid. This treatment both removes scale and hydrates the skin. One other pearl--dermatologists love vaseline as a skin treatment. Vaseline is an affordable treatment that keeps the skin well hydrated and protects from drying.
