In brief: Xerosis (dry skin)

The most likely cause for excessive dead skin shedding would be dry skin.
However, there are several other causes of excessive dead skin shedding. If you use a good moisturizing cream regularly this should correct the problem. If this does not help, you should see a physician. Several other diagnoses can cause similar symptoms.
