Give moisture to your skin
After having a bath, while your skin has the water over it, apply the moisturizing cream or lotion. Thus the water layer over the skin will be preserved. Glycerine can also be used instead of the cream or lotion. It is better to have showers on lukewarm water, not hot water. Don’t forget to pamper your hands and face, along with crack prone lips and feet.
Choose a Moisturizing Soap
Soaps can make your skin dry. To avoid the situation use creamy moisturizing cleanser that contains glycerin or petrolatum.
Clarified butter or milk cream
These are very good for cracked lips. Apply them over the lips for a week before going to bed.
