In brief: There are many...

...Causes of dry skin.
Get a good moisturizer and apply it right after your bath or shower, while your skin is still damp. That will "seal in" the moisture your skin needs. If that doesn't help, there may be an underlying problem causing your dry skin, and you should see a dermatologist.
