Avoid licking your lips. Although it may seem counter intuitive, licking your lips actually causes more dehydration. You may also want to avoid flavored lips balms, which may increase the urge to lick your lips.
Stay hydrated. Drinking lots of water and other hydrating fluids will help to prevent your skin from drying out.
