Did you know that dry skin is seen more in people with light skin, blue eyes and fair hair?
Darker-skinned people and men have thicker, oilier skin than light-skinned people do. This is because skin pigments and oils help prevent the skin from drying out as frequently.
However, if genetics didn’t provide your body with these natural moisturizers, then your diet can help combat your dry skin problem.

- Vitamin A—This vitamin can be found in liver and fish liver oils such as cod liver and can often heal the cracked skin of the feet.
- Vitamin E—Nicknamed the “vanity vitamin” because it helps keep the skin moist and youthful, this vitamin can be found in vegetable oils and wheat germ.
- Eicosapentaenoic acid (EPA) —An omega-3 fatty acid, EPA is found in oily fish or fish oil such as cod liver, herring, mackerel, salmon and sardine, and can help reduce the symptoms of dry, itchy or flaky skin.
These oils find their way into the epidermis by way of sebaceous glands in the dermis and help it to remain supple and not dry out as quickly.
