Why do hands/feet get wrinkly after they've been in water for a while?

Why does our skin react this way to prolonged periods in water?

It's because the surface layer of skin, which is mainly composed of dead dry skin, absorbs water. By absorbing water, the skin inevitably expands and increases in surface area. Since the underside of the skin is connected to underlying layers, the only way to cope with this increase in surface area is to get wrinkled.
