Ashy skin is just another saying for dry skin. It is more noticable on people with dark or tan skin no matter the race. You know if you scratched someone with dark skin that took a bath and did not lotion up after wards it will leave a white mark like chalk on the skin thus coming up with the saying ashy skin! Start looking at the back of the ankles of people in the summer if there chalky looking and this person has a tan but his/her heels and ankles are white they did not lotion it's not dirt it is very dry skin .
you get ashy skin by not putting on lotion and your body dries up and you need any kind of moisterizer to keep your skin the color its supposed to be not white and baby oil, mineral oil and hand sanitizer will be some very good choices to keep skin from getting dry also you might want to lotion up after showers or baths
