    Your skin is maybe dry because of inadequate everyday routine. You are maybe using some products which don't fit your skin type. Try to change some products you're using to care your skin.

    Is this on your face and/or body ? Choose gentle cleansers and moisturisers to help, un fragranced if you are sensitive.

    Stop the moisture escaping by putting a barrier cream on, or an oil. Vegetable based is better than petroleum jelly, which can dry the skin out even more.

    Drink lots of water! This might sound crazy but if you are dehydrated your skin may be dryer than normal. I like to mix in a little bit of coconut water for flavor and natural hydrating properties. Give this a try before spending $$ on creams and such.

    Following the same skin care routine year round may not work so well. To help heal dry skin and prevent its return, dermatologists recommend the following:

    Use warm rather than hot water
    Wash with a gentle, fragrance-free cleanser
    Apply enough cleanser to remove dirt and oil, but avoid using so much that you see a thick lather
    Blot your skin gently dry with a towel
    Slather on the moisturizer immediately after drying your skin
