Eat fruits that contain Vitamin E such as avocados at least thrice a week. Apply a Vitamin E oil based cream or lotion to the skin after a bath. Make sure to use an Aloe Vera or Avocado body wash during your daily shower/bath on your body.

Dry patches of skin can be caused by different things. It could be fungus or psoriasis. You should contact a dermatologist to be sure.

The first thing you can try is Vitamin E oil, applied topically once or twice a day. Try to find the highest IU you can, up to 32,000 IU, and make sure the oil has no added preservatives which might further dry or irritate the skin. For extreme cases, some people have applied vegetable shortening, such as Crisco.

Use a buffer or a loofah to scrub away pieces of dry skin in the shower. Then slather on as much moisturizer as possible. Make sure to moisturize the patch before going to bed too so the process can work while you sleep.

To get rid of patches of dry skin, you just need to purchase a good moisturizer (try Aveeno) and apply it consistently to the patches every day. After a week or so, your skin should be evenly moisturized.
