In brief: Yes

Skin cells require water to function properly.
Dehydration causes damage, accelerated aging, and inability to heal properly. All skin conditions and diseases would become worse in a body not receiving proper nutrition or adequate hydration.

In brief: Water

Water is great for overall body health.
However, it does not help with dry skin. Moisturizers are needed for that purpose.
