Increase protein intake in your body  

Lack of protein and fats can cause dry skin too so, drink protein drinks which will boost collagen in your body leading towards a better skin quality. You can also eat garlic, citrus fruits like oranges, guavas etc.  

Must add Omega-3 based food materials  

Eat a variety of fish which have Omega-3 (salmon, mackerel, tuna, herring, and sardines) in it to hydrate your skin within. If you don't like fish, you can always go for the fish supplements which are available in the market but keep in mind to not intake more of it as it has toxins in it. You can also go for the alternative Omega-3, flaxseeds. Flax seeds or linseeds are very high in fibre and provide good amounts of protein. They’re also rich in heart-healthy omega-3 fatty acids.
