The number one tip for better skin, regardless of your skin type, is to drink enough water. This is even more important for dry skin because it is more likely to get dehydrated than other types. Make sure to drink at least six glasses of water per day to help suppress appetite, metabolize fat, and keep your body and skin completely hydrated and younger-looking. Fizzy drinks, herbal teas and fruit juice do not provide the same benefits as plain water.
