What is Ashy Skin?

  • If you are with a dark brown or black skin color and you feel that sometimes your skin looks a bit gray, then you may have something that dermatologists refer to as ‘ashy skin’.   Ashy skin is common in darker skin types, and is a result of dry skin. Dry skin leads to a build-up of dead skin cells on the stratum corneum (the outer layer of the skin) causing the skin to look gray in color.   Thankfully, getting rid of ashy skin on the face and body is easily achievable at home with a personalized skin care routine. Read on for our expert dermatologist tips on how to get rid of, and prevent, ashy skin. To read more about “What causes skin color? ” click here.
