When this happens to Lucy, I will put her under some lukewarm water in the sink and gently pull the skin off of her...if it doesn't come off, it can cause an infection. This is probably because the humidity is not high enough in the cage. When Lucy is getting ready to shed (she will go into blue; you will notice the difference) I will take extra care to spray her cage down a few times a day. This has solved the problem, pretty much.
You just want to run the water over her to get her moist and as you gently work at the loose skin, it should come right off.
