In brief: Post-shower shedding

Not having done an exam iit sounds like your skin may be dry.
If this is the case, avoiding hot water, using a gentle cleanser, and using a rich moisturizer within 10 minutes of getting out of the shower may help. If this continues consider a consultation with a dermatologist.

In brief: Skin shedding

This is usually an entirely normal phenomenon.
Occasionally people have a skin condition called ichthyosis which can also cause some shedding.
