My derm recommends take a bath or shower, and with skin still damp (what Claudine 19 recommends) slather all over with gobs of Aquaphor (available in any drugstore). Wear light cotton pjs and sleep.
Aso or in addition to the capsule with the fatty acids, can you up them in your diet? I often read that pills don't do quite what food does (in other contexts though - like calcium).
Try some nuts every day, avocado, salmon. Also, what moisturizer are you using?
Let us know how you are doing with this.
ETA: Also check your diet for some other important skin nutrients like zinc and Vit. A. Try sunflower seeds, pumpkin seeds, flaxseeds are great - a handful every day with the nuts. Also sweet potato, and tomatoes.
