Dear Kasandra
Very dry skin requires treatment with special emollients. It is advisable to consult a Dermatologist because this condition could be caused by underlying physical problems such as thyroid imbalances. The Dermatologist will also prescribe the correct products and procedures so that your skin does not dry out even more. From a diet point of view you could try using Salmon oil capsules to boost your omega-3 intake.
