Does anyone know if there's any dietary changes I can make to help with dry skin? Like, any particular vitamins or minerals that'd help?

The first thing is more water. And essential fatty acids will help as well.

Fatty Acids! Olive oil, flax seed oil, vitamin e and there are others too. They tend to help skin and hair.

Yep definitely fatty acids and general fat. And water. I don't get enough EFA's and my skin is mega-dry but always has been - it sucks i have to moisturise it every night boohoo
